Yep it's time for Yeppoon 2020.

Recommended Posts

Wow is this year really getting a wriggle on?

Counting down the days now till we get to Yeppoon for the annual get together.

Easter is the full moon so that equals big tides. The beach is wide anyway but this means extra room to play The tidal creek across the beach is usually a non event this time of the year because of this.

I fly into Rockhampton on the 26th March and leave on the 28th of April based at Driftwood right on the beach in Todd Ave.

I posted my kites, helmet and armour last Wednesday so it's there ready for when I arrive. (Cheers Bernie for your help in this regard, your a champion :drinks:)

So guys who else can make it this year.

I won't make it this year, too many other trips to Qld (April 4 Officiate Roller Derby, April 25 Play Roller Derby, May 23 Niece's Wedding) and not enough leave to link these together with a kiting trip :-(

Sadly, we won't be at Emu Park 2020 ...  the local Lions club sent a short email email stating "we will not require your services this year".

😧

Apparently the Lions club are buying a bunch of printed banners to use instead.  As you say, not the same, but the average member of the public probably won't realize there's much of a difference.  C'est la vie.


We'll just have to change the location of our annual get together... Kingston 2021??

Sounds like a plan Kevin. I've already paid a deposit for a cabin in Kingston SE from the 16th Jan till the 27th. 😉

I think that sounds like a bloody great idea - not to forget Beachport now has us putting on an annual organised display - around about the 18th January. Speak with Ian at AKFA.

I was so excited and counting down the days and now I'm snookered as of yesterday.

Bloody virus has thrown a spanner in the works and grounded all non essential movement in West Australia. In other words for me no flights.

So I'm resigned to having to wait for Easter next year.

Bugger.:beee:

I had 3 trips to Queensland scheduled for the next 8 weeks, now all the events I was going to attend have been "re-scheduled" i.e. cancelled for now with no known new date.

I was really looking forward to the two drives in the new car; the other was going to be a quick flight up and back over a weekend.

My work has split my team into two groups, one continues to work in the office as usual, and the other works at a different location.  Each of these two teams is divided into two sub-groups: one to actually attend the venue and the other to work from home. Last week week was my "office" week and the upcoming week is my "work from home" week. I'm pretty sure there are enough work-related things I can do to fully occupy my days.  I just need the family to leave me alone long enough to do them.
