His humourous commentary kept everyone in stit­ ches, but at the same time in awe of this feat of navigation. Michael's wife accompanied him to the meeting but we wish he had also brought along his cat, an expert catcher of flying fish! The Annual Dinner Meeting will be held Saturday, May 2nd, aboard JADRAN, which is moored on the east side of Toronto's Yonge Street slip. Parking is available in two lots just east of the ship, and there is ready access via the T. T. C. (Bay Bus or Harbourfront Streetcar). The bar will be open at 6: 00 p. m. and the five-course dinner will be served at 7: 00. Our speaker will be Rev. Chuck Beaton, son of the late Capt. Horace Beaton (of HAMONIC fame), who will present a programme entitled "Growing Up in a Great Lakes Family". Members are guests alike should enjoy this presenta­ tion. Tickets will cost $29. 00 per person (a reduction from last year) and, as usual, guests will be most welcome.
