A NOTE from KUSHIL GUNASEKERA, 20 October 2013, .… pointing to a site that will carry updated information

Dear Michael,
All the details can be ascertained from the website Beefy’s big walk in SL.
Thanks to you the walk has materialized!
I recall it’s you who asked the question at the media briefing whether he would consider to walk in SL and that seed you planted is now bearing fruits!
May be you can attend the last day when we welcome him to Seenigama from Galle which is Friday the 8th.
Trust this helps and look forward to your gracious presence.
Many blessings,
Kushil.
