Update on get-together, July 7, 2018, Negombo,

Response from Niranja at Jetwing

to Jayalath, me, Karunanayaka, Charith, asoka, Piyaseeli
Dear  Assa   and  jayalath.
My  views  are  as  follows.
Group  Photograph..   

   1.  It  will  be  a  waste  of  sponsored  money  to issue  free copies  of  the group  photograph  to  each and every participant. 

     We  will have  to  negotiate  with  the  photographer  , what   we  need to pay  him  to  take the   group   photograph,    If    reasonable  , we    pay  ,  Otherwise   we  will  cancel  the  projec

We  cannot be  sure of  the  number  of copies  that  will be  bought  by our  colleagues

I can  send  out  a  flyer.   How  many will   respond  will be  the  question.
If  we  go  ahead   with   taking  the  photograph  , the  time suggested by you  will clash  with  the  Meeting  we  propse to  conduct  .. that   is  at  11.00  am.

Will send out  the  final  flyer  soon

Dear Assa,

The photographer's prices are reasonable.
Now that we have money,shall we give a 8x12 copy to everyone free without taxing them further.
Any individual photographs they will have to pay.
This is only a suggestion for you to consider and will depend on how much we have to spend for the DJ/music group and Kandyan dancers.

He also sent me the name of a photographer  - Deepal whom I contacted. He is willing to take a group photo and sell the copies to the participants at the following rates:
8" x 12" lamiated with names and title - 500/- each
10" x 15" laminated with  names and title - 750/- each
Photo to be taken before 10.30 a.m. and copies to be delivered by 3.00 p.m.
what do you think? would it not be best to sent a masil to all attendees and ask how many want a copy?
At the same tie you could also ask about ground floor preference and  anyone needing driver accommodation 

Still waiting for a firm reply about the music group /DJ expecting a call from Niranja today
