Our speakers this year were Bruce Mercer, Gary Tucker and the unit Commanding Officer Jon Walden who gave us an insight into his experiences in Iraq.

This year the price was increased to £28, the first increase in 5 years and I hope to be able to hold this price for another few years at least. Despite this, the event produced a small loss of £23.63.

Thanks as always to Mike Crick for his assistance with menu cards, Geoff Owen for the drinks arrangements and to Pierre for the catering.

CRA Dinner 2006

36 Centarians and their guests sat down to dine on the 2nd June 2006  at Southover. This is consistent with recent years and slightly above the average for the last 15 years.

Pierre Cuisine provided the catering for the second year and I am sure that Centarians would wish me to continue to engage him for the dinner as his food was once again magnificent. I think we will need to accept a more leisurely delivery of the meal as food of this quality cannot be “shovelled out” at high speed. Most Centarians that I spoke to were happy with this arrangement and had anticipated this more relaxed and civilised meal.
