Its a Hawaiian Night, so loud shirts for the guys and grass skirts and lei's for the gals. If you have any Hawaiin or beach music, please bring along so we can do a compilation disc. If you have limbo poles or something exotic, c'mon bring them.

Other Meals - Its BYO and feel free to mingle and conregate with other members. Hopefully we will be able to gather somewhere.

Fishing Nearby Pumicestone Passage has whiting, bream and flathead just waiting to jump onto your rods. The moon cycle suggests good fishing (if you believe that mumbo jumbo)

Activities Apart from the usual, there will be the Alan powered boat rides for the kids. Bikes can be ridden in the park, subject to the park rules. See there webpage.

To help Alan out, I have added a new poll, so you can tell Al if you are coming and what will you be bringing. If you have already posted you are, please select anyhow so we can keep track and not miss anyone.

My experience with Caravan Parks (mainly out west) is that the standard width of a site is 18 feet wide and you need 2 feet each side for clearence, meaning you only have 14 feet. Usually they have wider sites for wider CT's and bigger RV's. Hate to see you turn up and ya can't fit. :grin:

And if you are budding musician see Alans post above.
