Hi Ricky,sent you a Quick hello on schoolfriends website. May not remember me but I was friends with Gilly Chee,Michael Schuck, Craig Smith, Debbie Howard and many others but I was pretty quiet(I thought so anyway!) There is a reunion each year in Brisbane-this year 18th May and my sister Sasha and I thought it would be nice to put out the word and see if we can get some interest from the "younger generation" ie OURS! I haven't been to one yet but it is usually a family affair. Hope this gives you all something to look forward to. I'm not sure who organises it, but can find out. Regards Kim (Ravenscroft) Crowe

I was over in Cairns last week on a business trip and caught up with Julian Buckrell for a night on the town. Over a few drinks we talked about oragnising a reunion for all the old Bougainville brats that grew up on Bougainville during the 70's and 80's. We discussed the possibility of a trip back to Bougainville for old times sake.

If you are interested in a reunion in the furture for all the old Bougainville brats please respond to this thread so that we can gauge the interest.

Regards,

Ricky Hall (aka Ricky van Kempen)

Kim,

I do remember you, as I aslo used to hang around with Michael Schuck, Craig Smith, Debbie Howard and many others. I have run into both Michael and Craig numerous times over the years, having worked with them for approximately 18 months. Have you been in contact with Debie Howard? Do you know where she is or what she is doing? I am currently living and working in Port Hedland, WA - there are a couple of people around with the name 'Ravenscroft'... any relation?

Regards,

Ricky

Hi, Just found this site, I used to live in Kieta, Happy Valley is what we all called it, we lived there from 81 to 89, a couple of years inbetween was spent at Kimbie, the best years of my life were spent in happy valley, does anyone know Dawn and john Robinson their kids were simone and dean, shannon, dawn had a hairdressing salon at the Divara Hotel. And a couple called Manie and Vihinie (incorrect spelling I would say) The Taylor Family. Anyway we lived across the road from the beach and dad worked for the water board as a sparkie, his name is Howard Johnston. would love to hear from someone. Seeya

Hi Kiwi
No relations in Port Hedland that I know of. The last time I saw Debbie Howard, she was living in Sydney and had just had her third child. I know her family have all been living in Brisbane but I have lost touch with Debbie as we have both moved around a bit. Tried to get in touch with Michael but he has left the Sheraton Mirage. No luck yet. Tried to ring Craig Smith a while back but couldn't reach him. My brother Jason works in the hospitality industry and saw an article about Craig that he sent through to me years ago, but he may have moved on by now.
