2012 Reunion - Our 50th Birthday Reunion on the 26th February 2012 was a memorable afternoon. Around 100 former Mirror sailors and their families gathered for a special afternoon during which many great memories were revisited. Some of the famous early families were represented including Laws, Protts and Grannerys amongst others. John Prott 1971 Australian Junior Champion and son of MCAWA founding committee member lead the birthday wishes, cutting of the cake and singing of happy birthday.
Many asked about the next reunion. Well either 2016 or 2018 to celebrate 50 years of the Mirror in WA. However in the meantime we propose to schedule an annual catch up one afternoon each summer at the RFBYC main clubhouse bar. This will be promoted to all who attended this year who will hopefully help spread the word.
Having heard many wonderful stories and anecdotes on the day I am also proposng that the MCAWA commence compiling a "book" of Mirror memories from the last 50 years to launch in 2016 or 2018. Please give serious consideration to spending a few minutes writing or recording your memories of the Mirror. Also if you would to be more involved I'd love to hear from you.
Lastly, thaks to everyne who helped plan the day and all of those who attended, you are a wonderful group of people.
All the best.
Rik Thornton, President.
