Douglas Thomson (K53-61) writes : "The next Northern Gathering has had to be delayed until 2019 unless an OF living in the North would like to organise one in 2018.
My excessive, but very enjoyable, playing of hockey and squash is now showing up in my joints! I never played to lose! I am currently in line for two replacement shoulders; followed possibly by one hip and one knee. If all these are replaced I expect to not only ring the bell at airport security but blow the fuse as well!
My apologies for this but I need to keep my diary fairly free at present."
