Reminder...to the few that haven't already sent deposits, need this by Sunday 20th (Tech Day) at the very latest. Have 50 names and quite a few on the reserve list.

Looks lovely, sorry for the hard labour so I think it's only fair that I write the report. In take it you've never attempted to read my handwriting :-)

I hate to burst your bubble, but Bondi is a dump. It's full of pretend body builders looking like old walnuts and the shops are all tacky gift shops. By all means go so you say you've been (I've been ;-)), then go and find the really nice beaches in places like Manly, a short ferry ride away. You get to see the Opera House and bridge too :-). If you have time DO the bridge walk, the views are spectacular and it's no more than a gentle staircase.
Australia is fab. Sydney is fab. Bondi isn't. Have a great time when you go (I think it will be hard not to).

Been there, done ALL that :wink:

Just didn't quite make Bondi and feel it's a necessity. Yeah, probably tackly, but a damn sight better than Greenock on a cold winter's morning.

Have had 7 prizes donated by members so far, :D please keep them coming, going to make this a 'Mystery Raffle', some of the prizes have a novelty and fun value,:lol: (besides costing quite a bit) so should be a laugh and if you wouldn't mind wrapping them in some (Xmas) paper to disguise them, I would be grateful.
