Greetings Kankas and Kankies.

Some time ago, Oz Kanka and I discussed the possibility of having a Kanka get-together in the New Year. Unfortunately, due to one reason or another, the chance passed us by. However, the idea has not been put-to-bed.

More recently, Oz Kanka, Maniac Kanka and I discussed the possibility of having the long overdue get-together in the Spring in Antalya (I have already sent out an email on the subject).

The idea was originally the brain-child of Kirkcaldy Kanka Martyn before his departure to Ingallind last summer, and he indicated that he and Sinead wanted to drop-in and see their beloved ANKARAGUCU again. So, the idea was formulated to coincide with ANKARAGUCU's visit to Antalya in the Spring.

That idea is now gaining momentum and the wheels are now in motion to make the idea a reality !

We know the venue - Antalya. We now know the weekend - 12/13 May.

What we don't know is the exact day of the match, ie, Saturday or Sunday. We will not know this till nearer the time, but Maniac Kanka will give us a heads-up as soon as it is announced by the TFF.

Oz Kanka, Maniac Kanka and I will be co-ordinating the trip and we will be deciding on travel arrangements, hotel/pansion, etc in due course.

In the meantime, I would appreciate it if you could tell one of us if you are intending to join us on this special occasion (I have already received a `definite up-for-it` from Robbie, Judy and Suzan).

It goes without saying that we hope Martyn and Sinead can make it and I'm looking forward to them giving me a thumbs-up.

So, please contact Oz Kanka, Maniac Kanka or I by email, cep telephone, or on the Blog if you are planning to join us.

Look forward to hearing from you.

All the best from Eski Kanka Jim
