It's in the calendar, and set in stone.

Oz, it'll be good to meet you.

How long do you think it will go for?

I have an appointment to get an ECG at 11:10am at Blaxland so probably won't be able to get there until 12:30pm.

I have to check the manager of events, but we could be ok. I have to do a 20km walk that evening, but a daytime event may be ok.

That sounds a lot like something called "being organised".

I'm not sure that I'm entirely comfortable with that concept, but I can probably make some fresh salsa, some fresh guacamole, and bring some corn chips.

spewing, thats a shame!

sweet lord, Image

are we having a BBQ? are ther BBQ facilities there? I can bring some meat, the edible type too as a bonus, but kind of need to know numbers. Maybe someone else can bring some buns to put the meat in too - now that would be organised :up:

I will be there around 11 ish I guess.

I can make it but don't have a car and would prefer not to catch the train.


teh best I could do is a ride from teh south side :)

Good idea Gerry. Matt, Philo and I are bringing snags for the BBQ, tomato sauce and bread rolls - all for sharing (not enough if 50 people turn up of course :shock: ).

If it rains, there is a restaurant "Sambal" in West Ryde, which serves resonably good Singaporean food. :wink:

Very unfortunately, we will not be able to make it - having had about the last 12 Sundays effectively booked out, we just have too much to do on the Saturdays :cry:

Happy birthday Forum, have a great day tomorrow everyone and expect to see lots of photos.

sadly, we won't be making it this year.

Pam's dad (97) is in hospital, and as the nearest inhabitants, we need to play host to the horde that have chosen tomorrow to play dutiful visiting relative.

Happy brithday all.

I am very disappointed we won't be able to make it, however, who wants to be outdoors with all this sunshine anyway?

But, speaking of walks, I will suggest photo-walks* which will encompass some of the sections of the Oxfam walk (which is only 3 weeks away).


* I am aware that photos themselves do not walk, but I am using the term 'photo-walk' to describe a bush walk where taking photos is a key element of the walk. Just saying.
