SEQ Get Together

Postby Sam » Mon Jul 20, 2009 5:35 pm

Who would like to go to Myall Park for a couple of days? Not just SEQers - anyone who is planning on coming up our way would be welcome!

They're always looking for people to do some work in the garden and offer free accom if you give them four hours work a day.

Must admit - this was Brian's idea...is he trying to get rid of me for a few days? He suggested that depending on location, we might be able to go together to save on petrol. We'd have to take food and linen (or we could just pay the $5 per bed for that).

Who is in? People with telescopes would be most welcome!!

We'll sort dates out at a later stage - between us and them. September/October sounds good to me - or their usual working bees are around March, to get ready for the tourist season. The idea is that we say we want to come and they give us a list of jobs - could be weeding, could be maintenance. Who knows?

Just to clarify, what year did you have in mind Sam? It sounds like a fantastic idea, but that time of year is already booked out this year.

Yes - thinking about it, it is too late to organise now. Maybe March/April???

Okay - I am talking to Myall Park next week about our working bee.

Could interested people let me know when they are available around March/April.

Clare is looking over my shoulder, requesting school holidays so they can come too! (and she told me to put the exclaimation mark!)
