   Contract signed with Britannia for the reunion week-end, and we have requested that the coach trip be to the Black Country Museum again. "018 trip, it was rather cold and wet, and several
 members said that they had not seen some of the museum, and suggested we  improved the weather for 2019. I am working on that now..... It is very cold and wet in Leeds right now, but it will be fine in Coventry in October.

    A couple of reminders about our reunion.
                   
           The association has always encouraged members to bring guests along to our do, be they family or friends.
 Britannia does not charge us any single room supplements.  We will of course be holding our AGM on Sunday forenoon, and any good ideas about the future of the association will be welcomed at that time. The Mini-meet at Fleetwood, has been spoken of as very successful, and it seems that a return there would be well attended, as indeed was Lowestoft.
 I would like to hear anything ideas concerning mini-meets, when and where, and hope that this may well be discussed at Coventry.

                  Full details on Coventry will be out in plenty of time, but anyone who has lost/or not received an application form, contact me or Topsey. Hope for a good turn out.

   For the television buffs..... The Telly program "Peaky Blinders" is now being filmed in the Black Country Museum !! I think that a couple of our members (those with the weird haircuts and
    Violent dispositions) could maybe get bit parts ??? Whatever, it will be interesting to see if we can spot the locations when the program is aired. 8) 8)

   Reunion date is getting close. If you have not booked in yet, please get to it.
   It will have been noted that we are as usual holding our AGM in the Three Spires on the usual Sunday morning after breakfast. Some members are simply unable to stay for this event, having responsibilities that require them to be elsewhere, I understand this and it must be so. However, the committee does require a mandate from members to continue organizing the
association, and particularly when events may require us to take actions needed to continue to be a success. Non of us are getting any younger, making changes can be a pain, but all things change eventually, and I would very much prefer to see changes made for the better, so we can steam on for more years yet.
   We only actually meet on one occasion in the year, when individuals can submit opinions, if for whatever reason you cannot get to Coventry, by all means drop us a line in whatever style you prefer.     The Vic Association I think has been a good association to date, I think we can keep it on the right track with a bit of input from a few more people.

   Stoker Stan...... Still shoveling  ;)

  A  snap shot from the Black Country Museum. I thought I should put this up as so many members went out of the cinema saying " I Saw this when it first came out"... Charlie Chaplin in "The Little Tramp";D
