PSNC Officers Reunion 2023
Sadly, owing to the Covid-19 Pandemic in early 2020 we were obliged to cancel both that year's Reunion and the 2021 Reunion. However, good news,

The 23rd Annual Reunion will now take place on
Friday 24th & Saturday 25th March 2023

(However, it would be the 24th if we counted the Inaugural Meeting when four of us went on a trip up the Manchester Ship Canal in August 1997.)

A welcome message from Bernie Guymer April 2022
"Greetings Gents, I have booked the Packet Steamer for weekend 24/25 March 2023.
It is the weekend the clocks go forward but earlier weekends would clash with Mother's Day and St Patrick's Day.   . . . We can always have a lie in!",

    The regular venue - the Beefeater Packet Steamer, Northern Perimeter Road, Netherton, Liverpool L30 7PT   (TEL 0151 531 1497)  - will be the venue for the Twenty Third Annual Reunion.

    The Restaurant personnel have changed the lay out a bit and the back room we used for our evening get togethers has now been turned into a function room come dining room. I’ve booked it for both evenings but on the proviso that we dine together at a set time, say 6pm. Then we can have the room to ourselves.     I don’t suppose that should cause too much of a problem.

    All former uniformed sea-going Officers of the Pacific Steam Navigation Company (and latterly Royal Mail & Furness Withy) are welcome to attend.   Both evenings are informal.

    It has been customary to have a "slide show" (or now a Powerpoint Presentation) of nostalgic photos of personnel and ships etc from the old days on the Saturday evening.
