Official Announcement – The Belgium Reunion Tour.

We have previously alluded to potentially arranging a reunion tour, some 25 years on from our first one, and now it is official!

So…… now we need your help to trace all of the attendees from the ‘Grim Reaper 1995 Tour’. Please help us to name & shame those who went in 1995!

All our ORAFC Football Members, both ‘Past and Present’, are most welcome to join us on the 2020 Tour. Sadly there are only Walking or Zimmer type Football options for many of us these days, although it is all about the participation!

Our New Chairman will be organising the Tour, and we’ll circulate his contact details in a controlled GDPR fashion in due course.
