Would love to catch up John, there is a few of us on the Goldie and I may be able to extend the BBQ facilities to my place...

OK, I have split this into a new topic to see if others are interested in catching up for a beer and barbie - maybe at mine, depending on numbers...

OK...

I have made a booking at Currumbin Surf Life Saving Club, under the name MacDonald for 08.30 Sunday 5 October 2008 for 8 people (but if more turn up I am sure that will be fine).

See anyone who can make it there!!!

Excellent time had by all. See pictures for the terrible outlook we had for breakfast.

Yep, great time and nice to finally meet John (my wife's name is Liz) and a great spot for brekkie albeit windy today.
