                              You are welcome to stay Sunday night, but you must

 have your camp packed ready to go by 11.30 Monday.

  •   Watch the website if bushfires are likely to be a problem and

    we have to change the date  or venue at the last minute !!!

    Weather looks good for this year, and little bush-fire risk.


     Uncle John Caldwell, our erratically jovial MC, has resigned after 34 years. He says he is too old and sore to   drive long distances. Gerry Gunn and Alan Lazarus took over last year and have foolishly agreed to continue. Not as exciting, but better organised!

     

     The usual suspects happily sessioning  away, apparently unaware that their fire has gone out.
