Dear Members,
It is now less than three weeks till the 52nd GOS meeting in Corfu. We are busy with the final details and arrangements.The programme is ready and it is going for printing within the next few days. The members who will be presenting will be soon receiving an email with some instructions . Most of the participants have chosen transport to be arranged by the organizers, for the people taking a taxi, Corfu Holiday Palace is a very well known hotel and relatively close to the airport.
 
If you have any questions,do not hesitate to contact us. We had some rain the last days and if early September is wet, the last days will be fine!
 
See you in Corfu,
 
Vasilis,Hennie

Professor Josep Trueta and his colleagues founded this society in 1950. Membership is open to all those who have spent a significant part of their training in orthopaedics in Oxford. There is an annual three day scientific conference. At its founding the following paragraph was written which reflects the Society's 'mission statement', as it would now be defined:

'As the years go by most of us feel an increasing admiration and gratitude to those who are responsible for our upbringing and we feel an increasing appreciation for your friendship and understanding among people. Some of the men that owe their orthopaedic training to the school built by Girdlestone and who feel that it provided for them not only a school but in the intellectual sense a family as well, feel the need for an organisation that will keep alive the spirit of this family" [G.Mineiro 1958].
