Invitation to a Kiap Reunion

Sunday, 12 November, 2017.
Kawana Waters Hotel, Nicklin Way, Buddina
Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

This Invitation is extended to all Kiaps, their families and their friends.

It is on the date and at the venue shown above. The same venue as for the last fourteen years.

The Kawana Waters Hotel is located on Nicklin Way, near Kawana Shopping Centre, on the main road between Mooloolaba and Caloundra. A large parking area is available at the hotel.

The venue outlook is over water to an extensive marina and has a covered outdoor deck area linked to an indoor bar/lounge with adequate dining and seating facilities available for our use. Last time they ably catered for 329.

There is a good restaurant/bistro adjoining our area where as with previous reunions you will be able to order your own meals and sit with whom you choose. The restaurant will be open from 11.30 am to 8.30 pm. Since we will be sharing the restaurant facilities of this popular establishment with the regular Sunday clientele, the Hotel’s Function Co-ordinator has requested that we provide an approximate figure of attendees by the 16 October, 2017. So do let us know of your intention to attend or otherwise. All the tables are reserved for our Reunion.

Drinks will be available at bar prices from the Lounge Bar and Public Bars and these bars will be open from 11.00 am to 10.00 pm.

Informality will continue to be the order of the day. Definitely no speeches, everyone is far too busy catching up with friends. This format has proven popular so we will stick with it.

The Kawana Waters Hotel has sixteen motel style rooms available which we have tentatively booked for the nights of Saturday, 11 November and Sunday, 12 November, 2017. If you require a booking please phone the hotel on 07. 54446699 and mention that you are part of the “Kiap Reunion” group to secure a unit. It is the case of first in etc but we know the rooms were found to be very much in demand at all our previous reunions.

Other accommodation for those needing it may be available at:

Kyamba Court Motel, 94 Brisbane Road, Mooloolaba, Ph. 07. 54440202.
Mooloolaba Motel, 46 Brisbane Road, Mooloolaba, Ph. 07. 54442988.
Mantra Sirocco, 59-75 The Esplanade, Mooloolaba Ph. 07. 54576000.

Seaview Resort, 143 The Esplanade, Mooloolaba Ph. 07. 54443400

Some of the accommodation will provide special deals for us, so enquire when making your booking.

Breakfast on the Monday morning is another popular gathering and this will be arranged again. It is held at Bellissimo’s Restaurant on the Esplanade at Mooloolaba overlooking the beach and is near the Mooloolaba Surf Club and opposite “The Loo With a View”..

We ask that you spread the word and pass on this invitation to those you feel would enjoy the day. Our address list is up to date but we believe not all Kiaps are listed and some addresses may not be current. Please mention the reunion to all of the Kiaps you know as unfortunately we could have missed some.

Really looking forward to seeing you all again. There will be a small entrance fee of a ‘Gold Coin’ to cover costs of mail etc. etc.

Please ring, mail or email Denys/Helen or Bob/Heather confirming your intention to attend the reunion. Apologies will also be noted and recorded.
