50th Anniversary Dinner

International OK Association of NSW, Inc.

Saturday 30th June 2012

Drummoyne Sailing Club, 2 St Georges Crescent, Drummoyne

Many of you will know that we are celebrating our 50 years of OK Dinghy events throughout the World during 2012.  Our 50th World Championship will be held at Vallensbaek, Denmark in July.  In Australia our Associations were established in 1962 and we have an outstanding history of continuous events in our country since that time.  Our 50th Australian Championship event was conducted at Adelaide SC earlier this year and some of our older SA members were able to attend our presentation dinner function to celebrate the occasion.

The International OK Association of NSW will be holding our AGM on Saturday, 30th June, 2012 at the Drummoyne SC commencing at 4.00 pm and we will then follow the meeting with our Annual Dinner function at the Club.  Our President, Eddie O'Donnell and our current Committee wish to extend an invitation to all our current members, Life Members and past sailors of OK Dinghies to join us for this special 50th year Dinner to honour those who have contributed so much to the success of the OK Dinghy in NSW and Australia over the past 50 years.  We hope that many association members from former years and their partners will be able to join us for this function.

Drummoyne Sailing Club has been chosen as the venue for this function because of the club's central location in Sydney in an area where we are most likely to encourage maximum numbers to attend our 50th year Dinner.  There is ample car parking and public bus and/or ferry transport is accessable too.  It is also our current home club in Sydney and we will be joined by our members from Lake Macquarie to welcome all of our past members who are able to attend for this special celebration.
