RSVP: 16 October 2021 (see below)

This will be followed by breakfast on Monday morning, 15 November, at Bellissimo’s Restaurant on the Esplanade at Mooloolaba overlooking the beach – for those who can make it.

This Invitation is extended to all Kiaps, their families, their friends and other acquaintances from a previous lifetime such as teachers, didimen and so on.
We realise that some addressees may not be able to attend due to the tyranny of distance or whatever however at least this circular keeps you up to date with what is going on.

The reunion is on Sunday the 14th November, 2021 at the Kawana Waters Hotel which is located on 136 Nicklin Way, near Kawana Shopping Centre.
It’s on the main road between Mooloolaba and Caloundra…the same venue as for past years.
Drinks will be available at bar prices from the Lounge Bar and Public Bars and these bars will be open from 11.00 am to 10.00 pm. Some of the diehards have been known to congregate on Saturday afternoon for pre-Sunday drinks.

The venue outlook is over water to an extensive marina and has a covered outdoor deck area linked to an indoor bar/lounge with adequate dining and seating facilities available for our use. Last time they ably catered for several hundred. A large parking area is available at the hotel.

There is a good bistro adjoining our area where, as with previous reunions, you will be able to order your own meals and sit with whom you choose.
The restaurant will be open from 11.30 am to 8.30 pm. Since we will be sharing the bistro facilities of this popular establishment with the regular Sunday clientele, the Hotel’s Function Co-ordinator has requested that we provide an approximate figure of attendees by the 16 October, 2021. So do let us know of your intention to attend or otherwise. All the tables are reserved for our Reunion.

Informality will continue to be the order of the day. Definitely no speeches, everyone is far too busy catching up with friends. This format has proven popular so we will stick with it.

If you require a booking please phone the hotel on 07 5444 6699 and mention that you are part of the “Kiap Reunion” group to secure a unit.

We ask that you spread the word and pass on this invitation to those you feel would enjoy the day.

Please mention the reunion to all of the Kiaps you know as unfortunately we could have missed some.

Really looking forward to seeing you all again. There will be a small entrance fee of a ‘Gold Coin’ to cover costs of mail etc.

Please email or call Peter or Bob (details follow) confirming your intention to attend the reunion. Apologies will also be noted and recorded.
