2014 AFATIC Reunion -- United Kingdom



18-21 September, 2014

The next Reunion is planned for the third weekend in Sept. 2014 in St. Ives, Cambridgeshire UK. [Please note that this is not the other St. Ives in Cornwall.] Our hosts are Sandra and John Barry. You may view their greeting letter here and their final letter here, including some travel tips to St. Ives. The timing is to ensure that the UK weather is kind to us at that time. As usual for these reunions, the plan is to assemble on the Thursday with visits and so on arranged for the Friday and over the weekend for members, their spouses, and their guests. Visitors may wish to come early or stay late.

The base hotel for the reunion is The Dolphin Hotel, a lovely place on the Great Ouse River. See The Dolphin's website here.

A group booking with the Dolphin Hotel in St. Ives has been secured at the following rates:
Quote AFAITC
Thursday 18th Sep and days prior - 40 per person per day inc English Breakfast
Friday 19th and Saturday 20th - 118 per person for two days inc Dinner each day, B&B
Sunday 21st Sep and days after - 40 per person per day inc English Breakfast

The hotel has plenty of room and can easily accommodate our size of reunion. The hotel is not in the same league as the Renaissance Hotel in St Petersburg (nor are the prices) but it is in the middle of a small town and there are some local typical English hostelries to frequent. A guided bus service also runs regularly direct from St Ives to Cambridge.

The final itinerary is available here and looks full of fun! Visits include local attractions ... Barrys have in mind the university town of Cambridge, St. Ives, the Duxford Imperial War Air Museum, Defence Geospatial Intelligence Fusion Centre at RAF Wyton, and the majestic Ely Cathedral.

Please note that the costs cited in the final letter should be paid in cash at registration. The costs total approximately £55 per person, plus perhaps another £12 for lunch at RAF Wyton Officers Club. Please keep this in mind when planning your expenses and cash on hand when arriving at the Dolphin Hotel.
