The Aberystwyth Old Students Association (OSA) Reunion in 2008 will be held in Cardiff from 4th to 6th April (well after Easter). It will be based at the four-star Novotel Cardiff Centre, Schooner Way, Atlantic Wharf, Cardiff CF10 4RT where reduced room rates for B & B have been arranged for members of OSA, double occupancy £95, single occupancy £85. There will be the University hosted Reception on Friday evening, AGM, lecture and visits on the Saturday, and at the grand Reunion Dinner on Saturday evening the principal speaker will be Sir Emyr Jones Parry, KCMG.

A GEOLOGICAL EXCURSION on Sunday 6th April to look at classic localities along the Glamorgan coast is proposed. This will be available to any member of the former Department of Geology at Aber and to any OSA members who express an interest. It will be organised by Tony Harris who was a member of the Department (1953-1959) and who was the last external examiner of the BSc Geology Degree.

It is intended that the excursion would leave the Novotel after breakfast on April 6th and would disperse in the late afternoon of that day. A coach from Cardiff to and from the localities could be arranged, provided that there was sufficient demand and that insufficient places were available in private cars. So, if you are thinking of coming along, please indicate the number of car places you could offer or if you need a place.
Membership of OSA is not required for participation in the
excursion, and members of the former Department of Geology are warmly invited to attend all or any part of the Annual Reunion. Denis Bates and Tony Harris
