Fellow Guardsmen we are looking forward to seeing you all once again at a great night of food, friends and music at Reunion 2019.  Tickets are $65.00 with proceeds going to support association activities and our beloved regiment.  Up The Guards!

This year we are trying a new, less formal approach that still includes the most important features of camaraderie, military music, and maintaining a connection with the serving members of the GGFG.

As part of this new format we are planning the following changes:

  • A complimentary tour of the Canadian War Museum where we we will perform an act of remembrance in front of the regiment's WWII era Sherman Tank of Forceful III.

  • Opportunities to interact with current military kit used by the regiment and see what's changed since last you wore the uniform.

  • Try your aim on the simulated small arms range.

  • Visit the Regimental Museum.

  • A short and sweet Annual General Meeting (with beers on tap).

  • Learn what we're planning for the upcoming 150th anniversary of the GGFG in 2022.

  • Try an example of our celebratory whisky.

  • A more casual, buffet style meal (with a much broader menu choice) rather than a formal jacket-and-tie dinner in the style of a mess dinner.

​Dress Instruction

Smart Casual.  Jeans acceptable, no tears please - you're still a Guard!
