|It all started at Bag's 40th birthday
party in the summer of '98; we were sat about chatting
and I remarked that it would 30 years since we started
school together in Sep. '99. I got that look from
Bag telling me I had just volunteered for duty.
Later that summer I persuaded a friend at Manchester Evening News to publish a piece on a thirty year reunion for the Class of '69. Knowing a few people already gave me enough impetus to start to think how to track down others.
A few replies to the article got us moving more and having a list of all 'boys' from speech day programs, thanks to Mike Lyne, made the job of remembering a little easier. Meeting up with Mark Brennan and Nick Wall set the trail going in diferent directions and soon we had enough to know that the event was on.
I started phoning names from phone books and trawling through Info-CD which claims to list all people in the UK. E-mails, phone calls and letters later we had made contact with around 50% of the class and many of the masters. Finding a room was the easy job, advertising was courtesy of word of mouth etc. and the rest is, as they say, history. A pity that many we contacted could not make it on the night, hopefully next time will be better still.
My thanks to Mark Brennan, Peter Fay, Mike Lyne, Trevor Baglin and all others who helped make the first reunion the success it was.
