21 March 2020 – 6:30pm for 7:30pm
Boston & County Club, Parkgate, Boston, PE21 6RL
Guest speaker – Chris Blakey (BGS 1962-70)
The dinner will take place at the Boston & County Club on 21 March 2020.
An Old Boy with a sense of adventure, Chris Blakey was certainly not a candidate for the Parry Gold Medal. BGS did however play a key role in his life, encouraged by then Head William Ricketts and a young Rod Dunn, his PE teacher, setting him on a career path involving 30 years of sport and outdoor education including countless expeditions all over Europe.
He has recently driven a 1937, 750cc baby Austin from London through Russia to Tokyo for the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Chris will also be spilling some truths of an infamous 1966 School trip to Russia and is hoping to see a few of his old friends from this trip at the Dinner Watch this space for further details.
