BAgrSc & BHortSc 1967 – 50 Years On Reunion

We are pleased to confirm the Programme and have attached the Registration Form for 17-19 February 2017. 

We have had a very good response to our previous correspondence with over 30 couples confirming they will come. If you are in contact with other classmates please remind them to follow up this correspondence and register ASAP but before 16 December 2016.

Fifty years is a long time and it will be great to remember and reflect on the changes. 
At the start of 1967 we were still paying in pounds, shillings and pence, people still didn’t believe that man would ever walk on the moon, the computer at Lincoln took up a whole room and our beer ration for the weekend was six big bottles of “Bavarian” packed in a brown paper bag. And these are only some of the changes!  With the Christchurch Earthquakes and the changes at the University there is a lot to catch up with.

If you or your partner want to participate in parts of the weekend, there are options to register for particular events. We believe we have the makings of a great reunion and it will be good to see as many of our old class as possible attend, including staying at the Hilton. The feedback from past reunions has always been very positive with attendees really enjoying the weekend so please make your registration now and don’t just leave it till later.
