New to this ALS site will consider it also, how do you organize a catch up at the markets, any red flags or do you all know each other? Look forward to meeting you all one day! I live outside Warwick so its not that far Cheers Linda

    Hi Lindy loo , that would be wonderful if you could join us.We are not really planning on meeting up actually at the markets although quite a few of us do know each other so it will probably happen informally, although the markets are very big so it’s not a given.The GTG bit will just be at the Lions park and we’ll have something to identify us there – probably lots of plants!!

    Just a reminder to any travellers from the south that the Blackbutt Range is still being repaired after massive landslips during the January floods.There is single lane traffic only.Traffic comes up the range from the south on the hour and the half hour , goes down at a quarter to and a quarter past,so can be a long wait if you just miss the time.At least you can enjoy listening to the bell birds while you wait!!Not allowed out of your vehicle so have your thermos flasks in the car, not the boot, if you think you might need a cuppa.

    Remember, Remember…

    Remember, remember the fifth of November

    BlueWren calls us to South Burnet

    There’s no reason at all

    Why Bluewren’s call

    Is something we should forget

    BlueWren, BlueWren ’twas her goal

    To meet and befriend us all

    Three score bars of soap all set

    By calliecat our appetites to whet

    The Gods decreed we get together

    Bobbee, maybe]Steve (but not Vanessa)

    Lindy loo and gartenfree

    Paradiso and Judi B

    Nanango, Nanango, We meet for a bite

    Nanango, Nanango, ALS unite!

    EDIT: Not sure how Bobbee got included in this. I’ve been over this thread twice and I have no idea why I put Bobbee into the poem. I think I got a crossed wire from other posts I was reading. :shrug:

    Ummm…actually I don’t think I will be there. A bit too far for me as I live in Bris during the week and so my weekend time at home is precious. I just thought it would be fun to rewrite the Guy Fawkes Poem for you all.

    Can we have the next one closer to the Sunsine Coast?
