Clontarf to Grotto Point Lighthouse/Dobroyd Head Walk 

What a fantastic day!!!  Weather was superb, started off at Clontarf at 10am and walked to Grotto Point Lighthouse. 

Those on the walk

These grow plus vitamins really seem to be working.  I used to be shorter than Bruce once.

After Grotto Point Lighthouse we walked down to the the old huts at Craters Rock which was challenging but totally worth it.  Overall the walk was 4 hours with all the extra trekking we did.  Got back to Clontarf for drinks and fish/chips on the beach at 2pm

We even saw a wallaby on the walk.

 

Rosemarie Longworth and Scotty Longworth (dog) joined us for a late lunch.  Drinking beers and good wine after a long walk with great friends. Wow it doesn't get much better.

50th Re-union

Activities and venue for the 50th re-union have finalised with celebrations occurring over 3 days in October 2023. Come along with your partner or yourself, all combinations welcome.  As a number of classmates are travelling from overseas or interstate for the event we located the main celebration around Manly as there is an abundance of hotels and Airbnbs.  A number of local classmates  will most likley have a holiday at the beach as well.

 

Friday 27 October 2023

4pm visit to the old school at North Sydney Boys High followed by casual drinks at the Greens (location of 30th & 40th re-unions)

Sunday 29 October 2023

12:30-5:30pm Recovery at Narrabeen Surf Life Saving Club

The class of NSBHS 1973 has a swag of talented artists from jazz musicians, opera singers, folk and pop singers and those that can belt out a riff on guitars.  We are trying to engage these talented classmates to come along to a recovery barbeque and "jam session" at the Narrabeen Surf Life Saving Club.  We will also have a video tribute to the late greats Greedy Smith and Mark Simmonds that we hope all the talented artists and everyone else can join in.

The aim is to finalise numbers before September next year as we need to put down the hard cash for securing the venues. So keep the dates free. After all of this fun we can give our vocal chords and livers a rest, maybe do it again 10 years later at the 60th.
