Yeh mate ,she's another one of "them"!! Ever noticed,a bloke looks at something in the auto/ fishing/hardware shop & all ya get is "why do you need more of blahblahblahblah, haven't you got one of those". BUT ,when THEY come home from a scrapping party, order forms are filled in at a truly scarey rate for boxes of cutters/punches/stencils etc(which they already have $h!t loads of anyway >:D) & we aren't allowed to say a word ???. Beats me.Bevan :cheers:

Ah yes, as someone who hasn't been there either I'm taking some good advice on this and we're going to Kylie's.

We decided last minute & ducked over and spent another great weekend (just gone) there. Good weather and only about 5 other lots camping there. Was Nice and peaceful.

It is a great spot.

Well I don't have any scrap bookers, but I have a quilter and any other type of material craft going....cross stitch, knitting....and the craft goes everywhere.  Thankfully one of the quilts that she is quilting is also used as bed quilt.  When we went to Bendigo last year I ended up with wool all over the place from the Bendigo Wool Mills....

I'll see your quilter & raise you a scap booker ;D ;D. Judy does both. She started quilting about 6-8 months ago, has been scrapping for a while now. I'm sure the ladies will have plenty to chay about at Crowdy :cheers: Bevan

Attendees so far:

;D  Gronk (2 adults)
;D  Gunna Do (2 adults, 2 kids 11 & 14)
;D  Laith (2 adults, 2 kids 10 & 12)
;D  Bullfrog (2 adults, 3 kids 8, 10 & 13)
;D  HEM19X (2 adults)

;D  Darren (2 adults, 2 kids 6 & 9)
;D  Dorey76 (2 adults, 2 kids 2 & 3)
;D  Singo-26 (1 adult, 2 kids 3 & 7)


Plus, I've got a few pommie friends who are trying to integrate who'll be tenting it with us.  

With around 20 adults and nearly that many kids, this should be a really good trip. Fill the fridge, grab your boardies, chuck some snags in, or the compulsory camp oven and roast, and get along.

I was thinking the same thing.  Not sure if we can book out the whole camping ground.  May be worth an email to National Parks...

G'day Jules
I'm still planning on coming so you can add my name to the list. I'll probably bring Mitch(7) and Allen(3) with me aswell. Looking forward to catching up again and putting some faces to names of others.
Cheers

I'll chase Sparks & Wildfires on seeing if we can grab a big chunk of space, but I'm no hopeful. They're not there to help people enjoy national parks, only to fence off the best bits.

I'd say the best strategy will be to arrive on Friday, wearing a Reg Reagan t-shirt and playing loud music. Dammit Kranky, you left the east coast too early mate.

There is always a few people who cannot make it, so likely we'll squeeze in.

I heard reg wears a Kranky Al tee shirt when he wants to scare people off...
 Another option would be to strut up to anyone alse camped there wearing only pluggers and carrying a six pack under your arm and say g'day and offer them a beer.

Oh, Grafton-ites -  say no more  ;D You'll do fine.  No, really, that is a great offer thanks. Plus, Laith is a local and possibly can assist also.

I'm also planning to get up on Friday if I can.

 ya reckon just tell 'em where  we're from, should do the trick ;D. I'm hoping to be heading out of town by 8:30 ,9:00 am at the latest. Thanks in advance for the effort you have put in to get this trip under way. I know what it's like, being involved with our local 4wd club , trips don't happen on their own, someone has to put up a hand & say "I will". Top job mate, :cup: :cheers: Bevan
