However, all suggestions will be considered Saturday 12th March is Killarney Glen, then Peter’s Orchid Show in Canungra, then coffee at the Café Metz. Heather is now the coordinator Heather has sourced Epirbs at BCF for $350 each. However, Lynne has been able to source them for $295.90.

Nothing has progressed with the purchase of new Gazebos The walk for Saturday, March 19th is listed as Monserratt and Upper Portals. 4 wheel drives are required for this walk. It is also election day. The options are to change the walk or do it on Sunday. Brian is now the coordinator for this walk Back Creek Abseil.
