The Course Get Together for year 2012 was held on September 29-30, 2012 at Mangla Cantt.

A wonderful dinner was arranged by Tariq Khan on the Sunset Park of Mangla. Although a large number of course mates attended the main event of the get together on September 30, 2012 on the raft in the Mangla Dam Lake, a sizeable number from them had arrived a day earlier for an overnight stay at Mangla and to attend the dinner. Very detailed and elaborate arrangements had been made by Tariq Khan's staff and headquarters accommodating everyone in guest rooms both in Mangla Garrison and at Jhelum Garrison Mess.

After the dinner, the seating plan was changed to for a final briefing by the course secretary Asif, who apprised the course mates of the latest news about the course and everyone listened to him very attentively. He started off with the news of the shahadat of Dr Sharjeel, son of Shahid Noor, who embraced shahdat in the Waziristan recently and everyone offered fateha and prayed for the bereaved family. Thereafter, he also conveyed the good news of proceeding on haj by our course mates, namely Saeed Akram, Sami Ullah, Mohsin Amir, and conveyed their special greetings for the course.

He also mentioned of Maj Arshad's absence, who is a regular participant in all course gatherings, as he had gone to Lahore on his nephew's marriage. The good news of promotion of Mohsin Amir in the grade 20 were also broken, who is presently working in NADRA.

The secret of sponsoring the lunch on the raft was also revealed and it was told that Jamal Zia had borne the expenses of the lunch, on which he got a loud applause from everyone. All those who had not received or collected the shields, sponsored personally by Major Wasif were also asked to collect from Asif at the end of the ceremony. Before handing over the mike to Agha Umer Farooq, who has recently retired, to say a few words about his settling down, Tariq Khan was thanked on behalf of the course for the wonderful get together arrangements.

Ihtesham got late and arrived after the ceremnony was almost over - but it was pleasure to see him and everyone welcomed him with open arms and embraces.
