Clay Pigeon Shooting

There is an opportunity for us to go clay pigeon shooting; details are to be firmed up. Again we need to know what sort of interest we would have in it.

The cost would be £30 for 50 cartridges. We will provide the BBQ, food etc, you will need to supply your own drinks (after shooting)! We already have several names, the more the better. It should be a good day out. To save a few quid, a couple of you can chuck £30 in and share the carts.

F35

2017 will mark the 35th anniversary of the Falklands war/conflict. To commemorate this we are going to hold a black tie dinner event, as close as possible to the surrender date of 14th June. This will be a full dinner, we are hoping to involve as many of the services involved as possible. We are looking for a minimum of 150 attendees; I think there will be a lot of interest. Once the date is decided please get your names in ASAP. Alternatively pass your name in now to avoid disappointment.

You do not have to been down South to attend; this is a commemoration of the guy’s achievements in what was probably the last British Military operation that didn’t involve outside influences. Something I doubt us, as a Nation will ever do again.

So get the word out, and get your names in, lets make it a night to remember and of remembrance.

Malta 23rd /24th Sep 2017

Hi shipmates, looking at a reunion in Malta,  around September 23rd /24th Bernie Burnett is looking for location for a social gathering for one night.

A lot of individuals are flying out around the 21st, can I ask for numbers, it's make your own arrangements for the holiday’

It's open to all members of the Commando Gunner Regroup, even if you didn't serve in Malta.

40 years ago this month 41 Commando group returned to Plymouth, along with 8 (Alma) Commando Light Battery RA.

I look forward to you replies

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.
