any other questions about the weekend, we can discuss at October's meeting (expecially about Food) and create some solutionsIdea

RE: 2014 XMAS Trip 8-9 November
Hi all, I have spoken to Levuka 4wd Park and they currently have a total fire ban and this will be indefinite unless they get some decent rain soon, so if you're going Friday, I encourage you to take a gas cooker. I will be arriving early Saturday morning with my Mob and I will be bringing a 6 burner BBQ for everyones use and most importantly Dinner. I would like to encourage more members to join us as this will be an event not to miss.

Remember to post here if your coming as I need numbers no later than Tuesday the 4th of November for catering purposes. [emoji2]

Right now the roster god is smiling and I have the weekend off, there is nothing else planned that I am required to attend. Looks like the young fella and myself will be able to attend.
Roster god dependent of course, work is mad at the moment.
Not sure if travelling on Friday night or Saturday.

RE: 2014 XMAS Trip 8-9 November
That's great news Darryl, just remember to offer the roster gods a box of glazed doughnuts and that should appease them for a few minutes.

Thanks Kris and Elizabeth. Looks like I won't be doing much driving after lunchtime on Saturday, however that will give my wife a chance behind the wheel around the paddock.

RE: 2014 XMAS Trip 8-9 November
Ok, well this weekend is the club Xmas trip and I was wondering if anyone was thinking of heading up to Levuka on Friday and if so What time?

For the others heading up on Saturday morning the normal meeting place is Hungry Jacks in Bowy for breaky between 7:30 and 7:45 for a 8:00 leave time.

Can we get a indication on what people are thinking so we don't leave anyone behind.

The park can be real fun and even if you are unable to get involved in driving all of the tracks as the park can be quite relaxing and quite beautiful..

Have fun and take plenty of photo's..

What day are you referring to, Friday or Saturday. At the moment I'm looking at Saturday but it could be Friday afternoon, at this time of the year work is mad.

What a great weekend, good food, good company, good tracks. Many thanks to Peter (secretary) and helpers for organizing a fantastic feed on Saturday night. Thanks to Les for providing some simple, yet very effective lighting. And last but no means least thanks to all for attending and making it a great weekend.
Now, some photos of the food and tracks, to make those that didn't make it envious.
Did I mention the food Big Grin

RE: 2014 XMAS Trip 8-9 November
Thank you everyone for your help with setting up, washing up and packing up. Kathy, the kids and I had an absolute blast on the weekend and this was the first time any one of them have been camping and the first time the kids have been out of Queensland. I've been trying to do this for years with much resistance from Kathy, now she can't wait till next time. So once again, thank you everyone for helping make this a very memorable experience for my family.
