FINDING US: There are only two barbies in the park. Our first choice will be the one near the water near the end of Brunswick Street.

There will be game boxes on that table to let you know you found the right crowd.

RAIN? Come anyway!!


Our first choice is the barbie at the spot marked A, in sight of the water, but if we are not there, see the barbie at B.

Food and drink
We are but a humble organization and we cannot feed the masses. Please try to bring a little bit of food or drink to share. We will provide cups, plates, napkins, cutlery, and BBQ tools.

Feel free to use the thread below to announce what you are bringing so we do not end up with seventeen plates of Turkish Delight and nothing else.

Please reply

It's probably kind of obvious, but due to rain the BBQ has been called off. It will probably be re-scheduled for a later date though.
