MARITIME SQUADRONS ASSOCIATION – ACT DINNER SATURDAY 16 MARCH 2019

 

To all members

 

The annual ACT Maritime Squadrons Association dinner for members and partners will be held on Saturday 16 March 2019 at Rydges Capital Hill (Cnr Canberra Avenue & National Circuit, Forrest ACT).

 We were restricted for available dates for the dinner as March is the height of the wedding season in Canberra and most establishments are already heavily booked. In addition, the Canberra Day long weekend is scheduled for 9–11 March and the Brumbies have a home game on Fri 15 March 2019.

 So I can give Rydges staff an idea of numbers for the dinner, I would appreciate an indication by end-January if possible of whether you are likely to attend. You will not be held to this but it makes it easier to have some idea of the probable number of people attending. Can I please ask that you make a special effort to attend so that we do not fall below 30 attendees, which could result in a room hire charge.

 Details of the dinner are as follows:

 

Date:           Saturday 16 March 2019

 

Time:          1830–1915    Pre-dinner drinks with canapes

                   1915             Dinner (main course and dessert)

 

Venue:        Rydges Capital Hill

                   Cnr Canberra Avenue & National Circuit

                   FORREST   ACT   2603

                   Ph:              (02) 6295 3144

                   Website:      www.rydges.com/capitalhill

 

Menu:          To be advised—two options for both main course and dessert, served alternately.

                   Special Dietary Requirements: If you or your partner have any special requirements, please advise accordingly.

 

Dress:         Suggested dress for gentlemen is jacket and tie (Association tie and lapel badge), and for ladies after-five wear.

 

Cost:           MSA members and partners      $75 per head ($150/couple)

                   Non-members and partners       $85 per head ($170/couple)

 

Payment:     Payment may be made by cheque (made out to ‘Maritime Squadrons Association ACT’ and posted to me (Keith Brent, 102 Crisp Circuit, BRUCE ACT 2617), with attached ‘Attendance Notification’ slip), or by direct transfer of the funds to the ACT MSA bank account. For the latter option, the bank account details are as follows:

 

                   Defence Bank

                   BSB:                  833 205

                   Account Name:   Maritime Squadrons Association ACT

                   Member No:        3854195

                   Account No:        20733447

 

                   Please ensure you use the full name ‘Maritime Squadrons Association’ and not the abbreviation ‘MSA’ on your cheque or direct transfer documentation, as the bank’s system may reject payment if the account name is incorrect or incomplete.

 

                   If you transfer the funds directly to the account, please advise me (kbrent@optusnet.com.au) by email of the date and time when you did this so I can reconcile the payments received and check you off as having paid. Don’t forget also to send me the ‘Attendance Notification’ slip.

 

Please complete the ‘Attendance Notification’ slip attached and return it with your cheque (or transfer the funds direct to the ACT MSA bank account) at your earliest convenience. Please note that all payments are required by no later than Thursday 28 February 2019. Any cancellations up to that date will receive a refund. However, after that date, I will not be able to refund the full amount as Rydges requires payment in advance for the food costs.

 

Your payment will cover pre-dinner drinks and canapes, and a two-course dinner (mains and dessert) with house wines/beverages. The evening will operate on a ‘dry till’ method, whereby beverages (standard house wines, spirits, beer and soft drink) are charged on consumption up to a specified limit. If/when the money allocated for beverages is exhausted, drinks may then be bought from the bar on a pay-as-you-go basis. In addition, if members wish to drink other than the standard house wines/beverages, these will be available for individual purchase as desired.

 

For those of you who are not yet members of the Maritime Squadrons Association, I would urge you to join as soon as possible. Details of the Association and a Membership Application Form are available from the website at www.msa.asn.au.

 

Accommodation:

 

·                For members from outside Canberra, accommodation is available at Rydges Capital Hill (Ph: (02) 6295 3144 / www.rydges.com/capitalhill). Staff have advised that they may offer a ‘special rate’ for MSA members attending the dinner; however, they have yet to provide me with the details. As soon as I receive this information I will forward it to you by email.

 

·                Please note that I cannot make accommodation bookings for you and you need to deal direct with Rydges.

 

·                Another option to get a special room rate is to join Rydges Priority Guest Rewards program, which will give you access to discount members’ rates. It doesn’t cost anything to join and, besides the normal discount rates, they often have extra special deals—I’ve been a member for some years now and have used it on several occasions to good effect. You can access the Priority Guest Rewards website through a link on the Rydges homepage (http://www.rydges.com/) or go direct to https://www.priorityguestrewards.com.au/.

Finally, some information on the Orion End of an Era Functions at RAAF Edinburgh

 

 

Function Dates Confirmed

30 Nov - 01 Dec 2018

 

Due to operational requirements we have adjusted the dates and it will now be the weekend 30 Nov - 01 Dec 2018. These dates are confirmed and planning is about to begin shortly to make them happen.
As always if you need any more details or would like to contribute in some way please contact us via email at 
50yearsofp3.orion@defence.gov.au

The Celebration of the end of P3 operations (well almost) will be held on
the 30th of Nov and the 1st of Dec 2018.  The Friday activity will be an
evening hangar function on RAAF Base Edinburgh.  There is also a family day planned for the Friday or Saturday but not sure what that will entail.  I am hoping that there will be a P8 open for inspection and a AP3 also available for people to walk through and remember.  The official function is planned to be held in the Adelaide Convention Centre on the 1st of December.  The SQN is aware of cost issues etc and is looking at having the function at the Convention Centre as a buffet style event.  I will be chatting with the function organiser later this week and will hopefully have some more information regarding format, dress and cost.

Also be advised that the SQN will still be operational up to and probably
following the event so I will try and provide a conduit for MSA members,
both via email and on Facebook.
