Ok Cluby's, 

As there isn't any July Meeting due to the footy game on we need to start to get numbers of who is interested on attending this trip so we can let the camp ground know rough numbers. 

I would like to meet at 8am at Boonah information center instead of 9am so we not to late to have lunch at the end of Baker Rd.

Thanks Les some great idea's for the return trip on Sunday and as we all know it not a hard 4wd trip but more a scenic trip that will see us cross about 23 creek crossings in one day and a very nice lunch stop to stretch the legs with a great grassy camp ground to set up at the end of the da before we walk to the Killarney Pub for a great meal and a few drinks.

So if you are looking at coming please reply to this thread.

Hope to see a few members attend this trip.

See you at Boonah 8 am Saturday the 27th 

Cheers

Unfortunately, we may not know if we could attend until the last minute. If we could attend it may only be for a day trip.
