RAQ Townsville gathering draws a crowd

Another fantastic turnout for the RAQ NQ faithfull, this time at the Bohle Barn Hotel. Around 50 people belatedly welcomed in the New Year on a balmy Townsville afternoon. Tall stories were regaled, refreshments flowed, bar snacks were consumed and mateships renewed. Jason Handsaker won yet another meat tray on offer before gifting it to Fred Read for being an all-round nice guy (see what I did there Fred?)

We had six new RAQ members sign up on the day and wouldn’t you know it, one of them took out the members draw. Well done to SGT Warren “Squiz” Taylor on winning back your lifetime membership cost of $100.

Next up is ANZAC Day 25 Apr 24 at Flynn’s Irish Bar in Flinders’ Street, for an early start after the Dawn service before the march down the Strand. Look for the RAEME Banner at the form-up point at Strand Park, then we all head back to Flynn’s for the solemn remembrance part of the day.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Go to the the RAQ Photo Gallery for all the pics.
