Kirkee Day 2017 - 200th Anniversary Battle of Khadki / Kirkee Nov 5th 1817

My name is SSgt Donnelly I'm currently serving at 29 Cdo, and have been tasked to organise Kirkee 200 Dinner Night and I am wondering if you can advertise this event.

As I said it will be a black tie dinner night and not a reunion unfortunately there will be a small cost.

Firstly we would like to invite Ex BSM, BK and BC as VIP guests and then ex members will be invited as well but on a case to case.

The night is about celebrating 200 years from past to present day and at the moment we have had no interest from many old boys so want to get the word out.

From: SSgt Donelly


More info will be published as soon as I have it.

Update:

There are still about 25 - 30 seats available so if any more Ex Kirkee are interested email Ssgt Dave Donelly at: donners08@msn.com

                 —––––-—––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––-–

For those who are not going to the Black Tie Dinner (For whatever reason) on Saturday 4th Nov, I suggest a meet up down the Barbican from 1900hrs (Admiral McBride Maybe?), To spin some dits, drink some Beer, do the Kirkee Shuffle and sing some songs (The Kirkee Boys are on the Piss again) visiting the old Haunts until Midnight brings in Kirkee Day.

Ski Holiday 25th Feb - 4th Mar 2018


SESTRIERE SKI 2018

This Years Skiing Holiday went really well, We had 7 members (14 in total) of the Regroup that went and We are looking at doing it again next year. Hopefully we will get a few more (With or without Partners) to go.

So the Ball is in your Court if you would like to give it a go as a few of us are all going again.

Dates will be Sun 25th Feb 2018 for 1 week, We will be going to Sestriere in Italy with Crystal Ski (Thomson) (Link HERE) and are looking at booking the Du Col Hotel again this Year which is a Half Board Ski in Ski out hotel, offering excellent food with secure ski/boots lockers and its own Bar and Entertainment Nightly.

However there are lots of Hotels around and not just for Crystal Ski as Inghams, Neilsons etc.. do similar packages to the same location or everything can be booked separately (Equipment hire and passes are priced reasonably).

We are going back to Sestriere again this year as it is central and offers lots of skiing in the various resorts, and is good for all types of skiiers.

Sestriere is in the Middle of the Milky Way which offers 400km of slopes linked by lifts to other ski resorts including: Sauze d'Oulx, Sansicario, Claviere and Mongenevre in France, So for the Experienced among us We can visit the other resorts with the Area passes.

Summary:


Any questions just give me a message on FB or email me at markwalker29cdo@hotmail.com.
