Default Surfers Paradise Boozers! (3)

Well I decided that seen as this is our 3rd meet maybe we are no longer 'Surfers Paradise Loners'???

So I know there's a few suggestions for meeting up fairly soon so list your availability and we'll come up with a suitable date for most ....

I'm all for a date in October but know that some of us may be attending the big meet with Soapy, although if no one is going to that one what about doing Saturday 27th October?

Or 3rd / 10th / 17th November ???

I vote for Fishos for the next one (but on a Saturday cos I'm a lightweight and need Sunday to recover )

Fishos on a Saturday is not as good as it is on a Sunday afternoon.If you go before 2pm you might get seat and it only gets busier as the day goes on.

We are up for this weekend, maybe leave fishos until we can make it for a Sunday afternoon. Why don't we meet in Surfers for a few cheeky beers on Saturday and maybe a bbq later (weather depending)

Andrea & I can't do this weekend or the next as we have brother & sister-in-law in town with nephews, but can make the 27th Oct (we're not going to the big meet btw).

Failing that we can make the 10th or 17th Nov as well.

We'll deffo do this Sat then, I reckon a few beers around Surfers' coolest (read serve in pint glasses) and then a Barbie back at Gary & Alex's place. I can do a run to Pattons for a sack or two of meat. Whilst we're out we could discuss the next meet also, we were planning on going to the Southport Sharks meet, but only if we go in numbers .

I love the motto Gav, I can see t-shirts being made.... baseball caps printed

So, Stella u up for this Sat too? Sounds like Ste & Mel, Gary & Alex, Emma & Steve n Me n Est at the mo...Feel free to add your names! I vote 8pm Clock Hotel as I hate change!!!!!

We're supposed to be whale watching this weekend in Nicks work colleagues boat, but that might not happen so always good to have drinking as a back up plan!! Where do Gary and Alex live?

Am I getting the wrong end of the stick here or are there now two meets down the coast on the same night? Suit people with split personalities I guess,as we can get drunk twice in one night

Right in Surfers. Has a pool and bbq area n stuff. Apparently it's by the bowls club, near where the boat hire places are near to Melbas.

My thoughts are, you can't rely on the whales to be there, but you can rely on us and the beer.... it's a no brainer, and you can talk to us

Sounds good to me! Book us in for both.

And how about Shuck Bar on Tedder Ave, Main Beach for the 17th Nov? Great bar, only down side is that it closes at 12am...

That sounds great Gav! Not been there but then again we've not been many places yet

Pollyana - most of the people who have come to the 'Surfers Paradise Loners' meets have said they're not going to the big meet so thought we wouldn't be treading on any toes if we organised it for the same night??? If anyone disagrees then please say!

Sambo - drink v's whales - you're right it's a no brainer! It should be an early start with the boat thing though so we can do both

So it's

Saturday 27th October at Fishos - 6pm start????

AND

Saturday 17th November at Shuck Bar and if it shuts at 12am, shall we start at 7pm? (or earlier)

oh and this Saturday too, 8pm at Clock Hotel then BBQ (do Gary & Alex know about this? )
