The 2012 OBA annual dinner will be held on Friday 21st September. This year we have moved to the Carlton Hotel, just up the road from the Queens Hotel. Our guest speaker will be Mark Austin, ITN newscaster and Old Boy, subject to last minute news crises such as the euro collapsing, again!
Please complete the form at the end of our newsletter and please note the new address to return it to. We hope that we can build our numbers again this year after a slightly disappointing response last time. See you there!
Simon Hird has just emailed out the 2nd edition of the new-style OBA newsletter. If you didn’t get it, you can download it by clicking here. However, this probably means that your email address isn’t up to date on our database, so please contact us to put that right too!
There are two planned golf days which are open to all golfers of all age ranges – beginners or experienced players.
- Thursday 24 May 2012 Old Tauntonians and Old Bournemouthians Golf Day at Dibden Golf course (between Southampton and Fawley)
This annual event is a Stableford with full handicap allowance and is a friendly meet- up with the two schools but in addition to the individual competition for the Pomeroys Trophy for the overall winner there is also a separate trophy for the Old Bournemouthian Seniors (over 60’s) competition. This golf event is not just for seniors but open to all ex Bournemouth School folks. Traditionally we have a sit down meal after play and there are normally about 30 players. The green fee is £20 and the meal £14. Buggies can be hired but let us know soon if you require one as there are a limited number available.
