OHA Regular Monthly Luncheons

 Monthly lunches There is an OHA lunch on the first Tuesday of each month, except January, at the Waratah Hotel, North Hobart, from 12.30. Cost is $20 for the meal. Drinks, except sprits, are subsidised by the Association. Numbers attending, currently around 30 each month, is growing. While awaiting the meal, Old Hobartians are sometimes addressed by one of the number on what turns life has taken since being at HHS.

OHA Annual Functions

Melbourne Cup Day Lunch As this falls on the first Tuesday in November it attracts a huge turnout of Old Hobartians. There are several sweeps ($1 to $20) conducted on the afternoon’s big event and this lunch tends to be a somewhat longer affair than other months. Make sure that you keep Tuesday 7th November free this year.

Christmas Lunch The first Tuesday of December is also a big day for OHA members. Last year there was a special OHA Christmas Dinner arranged with the Waratah comprising a choice of two roasts or fish and a choice of two desserts plus tea or coffee for $25. This amount included all drinks. Mark Tuesday 5th December in your diaries now.

Annual Dinner at The University Club Following two successful annual dinners at the University Club, the 2013 Annual Dinner was replaced by the Centenary Dinner.

Please contact the secretary, Greg Jackson for details closer to the event.
