Festivities unofficially kicked off in the Strawberry Hall on Friday evening, the 14th October, where a small group of revellers plotted their campaign for the scramble format scheduled for the following morning in Luttrelstown Golf Club. Despite a few showers the going was good. Paul Morrison got nearest the pin and took the prize kindly sponsored by Gar Connolly of 'Cavern on Baggot Street' fame. The team event was won by Stephen Lambert, Paul Grimes and Neil Devlin.

All then decamped to the Castleknock Hotel & Country Club at 8pm for drinks and a sit down meal followed by a live music, that kept the party going into the wee hours of the morning. There was a great turn out on the night with people coming from near and far with approximately sixty in attendance. Jefferson Wilde travelled over from Canada, Emmet Coldrick and Brian Fitzgerald from London, and Declan McGauran (and his guitar!) came all the way from Morocco. After a few drinks, speeches, and a special mention for those who could not make it, we agreed to make the trip to Cathal Kelly's Gateway Hotel in Co. Mayo for the 25th reunion.

A great night was had by all.
