The 2006 Annual reunion was held on the 31st to 2nd of April, at
Maid's Head Hotel, Norwich.
Magnum Winner Kevin Ashman
Mugnum Winner Kevin Ashman
71 Members and guests attended in the historic Maid's Head Hotel
for what would prove to be the last time our patron Magnus Magnusson attended the reunion. For a change he could sit back and enjoy proceedings on the Saturday night; Vice-President Tony Dart having been nominated to compere the Magnum quiz and finding the presence of the Master rather intimidating! To distinguish the post-Magnus Magnum Gavin had elected to play around with the format and introduced an audio-visual element which generally went down well, although Kathryn Johnson took a long time to forgive him for Emerson, Lake & Palmer's take on Janacek he inflicted on her! The new format didn't phase Kevin Ashman though, who sailed serenely on to yet another victory and the new trophy, a Quaich. Prior to that a guided tour had been arranged around the city on the Saturday morning, and a cathedral tour in the afternoon which proved so popular there needed to be two groups. With the weather generally fine it proved to be another enjoyable weekend for those present.
