Message from organiser, Dave Lichtenstein:
This year we celebrated our tenth annual consecutive All East African Schools picnic at the same venue where past picnics had been held, namely the Lane Cove River National Park in Sydney. Despite this milestone, the weather forecast for this Sunday was always supposed to be a rainy day so not surprisingly a number of folk did not attend. However, despite the weather and because the shed at 4 Illoura (our target venue) had been commandeered by yours truly, we had a remarkably good turnout. By my reckoning there were nearly 40 in attendance. Next year we will celebrate the 11th consecutive annual picnic, so it will really be the tenth anniversary year! Letís see if we cannot achieve a goal of having at least two folk representing every school in the good old EA.
