Dear Whitniks,
This is to give you advanced notice that the next Whittingehame Reunion will be held at

The Grand Hotel
Sunday June 20th, 2010

As has now become the custom, the reunion will be proceeded by a lecture on the Saturday evening.  Many of you will no doubt be travelling from far away places and informal get-togethers will be taking place as early as Friday.  So, plan to come down to Brighton for an entire fun and enjoyable weekend.

 Details of rates negotiated with the hotels will be announced in due course and posted on our website

There are now over 1600 names in the Whittingehame directory and accessible on the web to our members. However, we only list some 360 email addresses.  Since email will be an important method of keeping in touch, it is imperative that we expand our current list.   You could help us here!  If you see your address is incorrect, missing, or that of a fellow Whitnik, please forward the revised information to us.  Go to Register and click Update-Change-Add-Remove  on the Whittingehame website.

Looking forward to a great reunion,

Eddy Edelsburg

Hi All
We have been requested by the restaurant manager to delay our party by half an hour.  So the new timing is -

Registration at 12.30 and
Lunch at 1.00pm prompt.
(both at the Terrace restaurant on 2nd floor).

Please do not arrive before 12.30, to enable them to clear breakfast and set up tables for our party.
All other details are unchanged.
Looking forward to see you soon.
