QE2 story Clyde Gathering - 29th & 30th of June 2012
« on: Apr 23, 2012, 08:57 PM »
Hello everybody,

The proposed date for our Clyde weekend this year, is the 29th & 30th of June.

Friday night drinks in the Crowne Plaza, and then the day trip on the Waverley the next day.

I can't make those dates  :'(  as I'm booked for a lovely 'gourmet break' in the Lake District that weekend, with a cruise on one of the Ullswater steamers - and have paid for it in advance...  but I'll be up on the Clyde from 20th - 28th July  :)  if anyone else is around.

Hotel booked for 29 June and Waverley booked for 30 June.

Looking forward to meeting everyone at the Crown Plaza for drinks and onboard the Waverley for the sail down the Clyde. 

Can't wait!  ;D

I am so looking forward to meeting up with QE2 Story members at the end of June particularly after meeting up with members in Southampton on Tuesday.

I'm miffed that I'm going to miss it this year too. I had to surrender my passport last week while my resident permit is being processed so I'm stuck in Kuwait. At this stage I don't know when I will get it back.  :(

That's my Waverley ticket booked!

It will be my first trip on the Waverley this year and it will be nice to do it with friends!

Sounds good - and great to know that once more, Waverley's doing what she does best!
Sadly and regrettably, it looks as if it may not be possible for me to get to the gathering in Glasgow in June / July.
I'll know more this next week, and will keep you posted.

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.

For members thinking about joining us onboard the Waverley here is the link to the PS Waverley web site where you can book tickets.  The Waverley leaves Glasgow on 30 June at 10.00 to sail down the Clyde to TIGHNABRUAICH and will return to Glasgow at 20.30

http://www.waverleyexcursions.co.uk/

Or you may just want to join us for drinks on Friday 29 June at the Crown Plaza Hotel, Glasgow at 19.30

We always book online before hand just in case it is busy.  You print out a ticket confirmation then exchange this for a ticket at the Purser's office when onboard.
