Exclusive bonus for those attending on this evening -

I'm going to bring my laptop and have the exclusive reveal of photos from on board QE2, including crew areas etc.  

Really looking forward to it, it was great last year, and the Tall Ships event itself is sounding AMAZING!

Hi Rob,

Sorry I've taken so long to reply to the invitations to join this year QE2 meet. However, I am pleased to say Rosemary and I will join you for drinks at the Crowne Plaza on Friday 8th and we'll be staying overnight but, we're unable to make the trip 'doon the water' on the 9th. Looking forward to meeting up - and seeing your pictures - will bring some 'bits and pieces' to share. Cheers  :)

We are now on the count-down to drinks on Friday evening.  

What is really good is that members can meet up with us at different stages over the week-end whether for drinks on Friday, sailing down the Clyde on the Waverley, meeting us coming off the ship at Greenock, or at the Tontine Hotel for a meal.  Looking forward to meeting up with everyone who is coming along.  

Friday:
Rob Lightbody
Alistair
Flagship (Michael)
Twynkle (Rosie)
Lynda (Lynda and Tom)
No 736 (Steve Strachan) – will try to come along
Clyde Paddler (Helen)
Tyne Turbine?
Cunarder Man (John and Rosemary)
Isa and Alex Burns

Last year i booked a table in the bar for us, but this year i haven't done as i think we can just make it up as we go along.

If anyone desperately feels that we should, then let me know!  My logic is that it's a big bar and there's not many of us.

On the roll call list, I think we can remove ali (singlemalt) and add Alistair.

Anyone else is obviously welcome just to appear unannounced!

Mrs Burns -  (Isa and Alex = 'Mr Burns') - will be coming to the Crowne Plaza, too  :)
QE2 had been waiting alongside in Dubai for nearly 12 years.  Please restore her Lifeboats and Tenders to where they truly belong - she looks naked without them - please spare her this ignominy.

We will try to get seats in the area towards the back of the Bar area.  Look for the Clyde shipbuilding mural on the back wall.  Hopefully you will be dazzled by the sight of lots of QE2 Story Badges.

We can only guess at the high jinx that went on, if it was anything like last year..... ;)
