Sri Lanka 2020

The EFAC7075 Get-together in “Sri Lanka 2020” will commemorate the 50th anniversary of EFAC7075 batch admission to the Faculty of Engineering, University of Ceylon, Peradeniya in 1970.

The Organising Committee of Efac 7075 GTG2020 met in Colombo on March 13, 2020 to review the current situation imposed by the spread of COVID-19 virus and to take decision for the arrangements for the celebrations planned on early August 2020. Following are the decisions reached by the Committee.


1.       The Organising Committee has made hotel reservations ( 50 rooms in Pollonnaruwa and 45 Pasikudah) and obtained quotations for luxury buses for travel. The hotels required us to pay 50% of the total lodging cost as an advance before March 3, 2020 to confirm the rooms reservation. But in view of the current situation, the Committee did not make any advance payments for hotels. We need to book early the large number of hotel rooms in one hotel.
2,      The Committee unanimously decided that it will be difficult to hold the celebrations in August 2020 as planned due to the uncertainty created by the spread of the virus. Consequently the Committee unanimously decided to postpone the event indefinitely.
3.      The Committee is also of the view that if the situation is eased off at least by end of May, there is a possibility to reschedule the event after October and between October -December 2020.
4.      The Committee also decided to ask suggestions from the batchmates on possible timing for the event, assuming that the situation will be under control by June-July 2020.
5.       As the event is now indefinitely postponed, it will be necessary to ask the batchmates of their willingness and confrmation on the participation at the celebrations once the revised dates are finalised.
