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.
