Celebrating on the Slopes

Social media often gets a bad press, but in this instance it enabled OVs Jim Hodgson (Ch 79-84) and Jamie Mackie (Os 75-85) to realise they were only 30 minutes from each other, while both were on holiday.

Jamie has lived in Melbourne, Australia, for many years, so this was an opportunity not to be missed. He had made the trip over to France with his eldest son, Tom, to see his daughter, Liv, who is currently living and working in Thonon, on the southern shore of Lake Geneva. They made the short drive into the mountains to Avoriaz, where Jim and his partner Jo Perrin were enjoying the last days of the ski season.

It was great for both OVs to reminisce over all things King’s and relive those shared times on the rugby and cricket fields many years ago! Neither was sure when they’d last seen each other, but it was probably at an OV wedding some time in the late 1990s.
