The Association Dinner on the 28th at RAF Wittering has been changed to dinner in the George at Stamford on the same night. The Mess needed to know final numbers by today, and we simply didn’t have time to get the word out to everybody.
Here’s the full story from James (on the Sqn):
Hi Chris, As we initially suspected, due to the miscommunication and time scales involved, there has been a very low level of responses for the Association dinner we were trying to organise. As it stands we have nowhere near the minimum level of attendance required so we have no option other than to cancel the dinner I’m afraid. Instead, the Sqn is going to hold a late-notice dinner at the George Hotel in Stamford on the night. The venue is smaller and the meal will be a little more expensive but we would like to extend an invitation to those Association members who did provide returns for the Association dinner. I will contact those concerned personally and provide them with the details. Talking with OC(IV) the plan will be to organise another dinner sometime in the next few months with enough lead time to get the information out there properly. We apologise sincerely for the cancellation but had no other option. Regards, James
