  •   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, with little bush-fire risk.

    Uncle John Caldwell, our erratically jovial MC,  resigned after 34 years. He says he is too old and sore to  drive long distances, and he doesn't feel particularly sociable. Gerry Gunn and Alan Lazarus have taken over, 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.
