Talking Papamoa BBQ/Picnic.

I've been asked by a few to see about setting up another meet up. Plus we have some more newbies - Numptyhead in Whakatane and Will_and_Tina H arriving this coming weekend.

I alos know people are busy with the summer holidays etc. So plenty of notice for this one.

Wednesday 27th January - weather permitting. Midday?

Either the BBQ's behind Bluebiyou at Papamoa Domain or I thought of the park on the corners of Gravatt Road and Pacific View Rd as there are BBQ's, lots of space for footie, cricket etc and the actual play equipment. That will keep me happy but I don't know what the kids will do!

This is just a throw the idea out there thread and then antone with any better ideas/dates/time etc can partake!

Should be fun.

Hey that sounds great. I am working a night shift that night, so midday would be great for us. It will be lovely to put the faces to the names.

Thanks Caroline, lovely idea x

I'll be looking forward to that then
I've been hoping to join in with a Papamoa meet up for some time as I've been spending a lot of time over there at the beach (& Rain ).......but I work full time & it's pretty hard to juggle days off in the week. A weekend meet up would be great

Cool Vicky!

But currently the weather forecast is looking more than a little hit and miss ... watch this space for updates or if we need to change venue.

If ok I think the park would be best for the kids.

Corner of Pacific View Rd and Grenada Street.
