SCARA 13th Annual Reunion Lunch

Post date: Nov 10, 2018 9:34:53 PM

We could have asked for better weather Thursday 1st November 2018 but not for a more successful 13th Annual Reunion. Thank you to everyone who helped make it such an enjoyable day.

If you have a story to share with us about the day please let’s hear from you.

Unfortunately, a few people did experienced transport difficulties with cancelled or slow running trains. Ray Andrews and his wife Lynn were delayed by both trains and a torrential downpour which brought the London traffic to a standstill! Fortunately, there was plenty of food so nobody went hungry. Others like Wendy Carr enjoyed a chat en route to the event with some good-looking soldiers collecting for the Poppy Appeal and got a lovely pic to prove it.

I am also aware that some of our members extended the reunion with a trip to the pub – possibly to avoid the rush hour traffic?

It was a pleasure to welcome Tom Boardley as our guest speaker. Tom, gave us a brief history of his career in the shipping industry finishing with an update of his new role in the Cruise industry. Just like the container industry, cruise ship owners are intent on increasing ship size to gain benefits of scale. Unlike our container industry however, they seem able to make a consistent profit!

We were very pleased to see Lady St. Johnston and Bob Bowen, SCARA Vice Presidents, at the reunion. Lady St. Johnston made the presentation of the silver rose bowl to Adrian Malupa who was this year’s winner of the Golf Challenge. And Bob, well he was his usual cheeky self and a pleasure to see.
