Dear Fellow OD’s
I have had some responses to the emails I sent out in October. I thank all of those that did respond.
The majority of the OD’s would like to meet on the 6th of December 2018.
The venue that most OD’s preferer is the Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club.

I have booked the tables under my name Dirk van Doorn. The tables are reserved for 18:30.
The location itself will be outside the club house where we meet last time for those that attended.https://www.reserveout.com/dubai-en/lakeview-deiraDate:

It does not matter how big or small the amount is. Any contribution
will be welcomed. I will arrange for the transfer and provide a list of the donors from the
Middle East branch. If you wish to stay anonymous that will also be respected. I hope
we can raise a couple of thousand Dirhams at the event.
I look forward to seeing you all at the OD event.
