Old Cambrian Society (Australia) Reunion - 24th October 2010 (as part of the Eleventh Annual East African Schools' Picnic in Sydney)

Message from organiser, Dave Lichtenstein:
This year we celebrated our tenth anniversary (or eleventh 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. Regrettably (as experienced last year when we celebrated our tenth consecutive annual picnic), despite this milestone event 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 of both old stalwarts and new faces - some of them coming from as far afield as Ulaya. By my reckoning there were nearly 60 in attendance.

Jerry Cox has sent in a short video of the picnic -- you can watch it on Youtube here.
