Message from Ken Taylor, one of our founders:

Dear Mark,

 As a founder No. 007 I felt that I should contribute a few words to this Golden Year.

I am now 96 and registered disabled so I will not be able to attend the Annual Reunion etc.

But I wish you all, a weekend you will never forget.

To all Committee Members and the contributors over fifty years I thank you and congratulate you for such a grand


 I always look forward to my hard copy magazine not having a computer.

 Yours Sincerely

 Ken Taylor
