  1. Footy Grandfinal long weekend 2017 at Sandy Point Vic The tide times are awesome for using the main beach this weekend so hopefully the wind gods will be kind and provide the right amount of wind, at the right time and in the right direction. This event is diferent to previous years so please read on: You will need to organise your own accomodation there will be no group booking of houses. You can contact the Sandy Point Caravan park on 9998 4462 or by email sandyphpark at As of the 15th May they still had some sites. The advantage of this park is that it is straight accross the road from the beach and next to the shop for anything you forgot to bring. It was old but ok when we stayed a few years ago but can be crowded. Other options are Warratah Bay Caravan Park. As of the 15th May they had a handful of powered sites and plenty of unpowered sites or another caravan park a little further away such as Foster or Toora. Or get a group together and book your own house - try the local realestate agent or one of the common booking sites. It is up to you to decide where to stay and arrange it. There will be a group dinner out in Fish Creek on the Friday night at a venue to be confirmed. If you want to be included in the booking please reply in the Footy Grand Final thread with the number of people to be included in the booking. Weather permitting there will be a group BBQ on Saturday night at the BBQ's at the back of the community center (accross the road from the caravan park behind the shops and tennis courts). You will need to bring your own meat, drinks and something to share with everyone for example a salad or dessert. Closer to the date please post up what you are bringing so we don't get too many double ups. Hope to see you all there. Kathleen and Nigel
  2. I am sure these will be at the Aldi ski sale this year!!
  3. Melbourne cup is on the first Tuesday in November. That's the 7th this year. So you need to check the tides for the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th of November.
  4. Hi All, Just some quick musings. I don't know how many have had a look at the tides for Speed week, but they don't look very good. High tide for each day is Sat. @ 12:10pm, Sun. @ 1:07pm, Mon. @ 2:01pm, and Tues. @ 2:51pm Another option which we all might want to consider, is the Grand final long weekend on the 29-30th of Sept, and the 1st of Oct. The tides for this weekend look great with the Low tides on Fri. @ 11:46 am, Sat. @ 12:28pm, and Sun. (day light savings adjusted) @ 2:16pm. So what are peoples thoughts? I was considering missing Speed week, and hitting Sandy Point for the footy long weekend instead. If there are a few interested, how many would need houses, who's doing day trips, and who's camping? I guess it will be peak rates for the caravan parks on the footy weekend.
  5. Machines can be purchased. Sewing skill can't.
  6. Time to find out how much a kidney is worth......
  7. A workshop would be great. But I think I need to learn to sew first.
  8. Looking Good!!
  9. Well I could have hand delivered it, and even tested it to make sure it flew. Now we expect to see it flying at the next kite meet.
  10. Got some eyes.
  11. Eeeeeewwww! Hope it heals quickly.
  12. Well another great Adelaide kite fest over. Three days of flying, good weather, and a great bunch of fellow kite fliers! You couldn't ask for more If you haven't been to the kite festival here before then your missing out!!! Book your holidays for Easter next year, and come and have a blast with other awesome kiters. Like this guy
  13. Yes that's his kit! Besides what he had in the air at the time!!
  14. Here's your kite Darren. As modeled by the man himself Rob Brasington.
