Visiting N. Carolina at the moment, from my home on the shores of Georgian Bay, Ontario. Just made a phone connection with Ian L. Smith (46-53?) in Johnsonville, SC - or should I say 'his wife'. Ian wrote his history under 'Whatever Happened to...' a few issues back of the Magazine and I was hoping to visit him while here. Unfortunately he is not in good health & suffers from a combination of Parkinsons & Alzheimers disease. His wife also has health problems so a visit is out. Too bad.
Another week or so here in mild but, to date, dreary weather & then back to the remnants of a brutal winter in Canada. This was the first winter in the past twenty that lakes Superior, Huron, & Ontario have frozen over completely, while Michigan & Erie had little ice coverage..Very strange!

I attended the Roan 1959 - 1964 if anybody remembers me. I remember John Marks as he was in my class. I would be interested to hear from anyone who remembers. Mr Garstang was the head and Mr Berry the assistant head. John Marks was a good friend who I played football with.

Listened to Arthur Smith last night on BBC radio 4; was anyone else as embarassed as I was with his rude, poor and lamentably awful 59 minutes worth? Arthur : get a grip and stop trying so hard,. You cannot sing and your foul language is not funny.

Yeah I remember that tackle with Martin Wilson (meaty) as we used to call him . The ball went bang !! We must've been going for it.
Great days in those cup finals. I still have the medals. One winning medal and one losing medal.

I was at the Roan in Devonshire Drive from 1958 to 1963. Would be good to hear from fellow pupils.

Bob Burton and Ray Stone? What names from my 6th form days, although I was somewhat younger than both of them being a 1961-67 boy . ( Sorry, Guys.) It was good to meet up with Ray at the Club after Tony's funeral and to remind him that he recommended me to be School Captain. In turn I recommended Kevin Todd when I left. The beginning of the end?

Ref to Colin Milne's note of 20 Oct, I was in the same year as his brother Ian ( 1957 -64), and in fact Ian and I became bridge partners. I seem to recall that both were very interested in sailing.

Some of you may (or may not) remember that I used to take photos at various times and process and print them myself. Well, I still have 90 sets of negatives and have extracted some (80) Roan, Old Roan Dramatic Society and Lake District camping photos from the first 20 sets. They are available on line at http://www.photobox.co.uk/album/2296974175

Please feel free to comment on them and pass on the address to anyone that may be interested.
