Kathleen and Jim win the much saught after souvenir an engraved slab of timber which was kindly donated by our raffles and Happy Hour organisers Marj and Pete.

 

Congratulations Kathleen and Jim.

Cunamulla

 

Our tag became stranded in Cunnamulla for a week due to the rain and we were very grateful for the efforts of our Fearless Leaders and the management of the Warrigo Riverside Tourist Park for all the re-organisation they had to do to accommodate us all for the additional four nights.

The ground was wet and muddy but our spirits were high.  We had regular Happy Hours in the camp kitchen with games including Bingo, Ukulele sessions entertainment by our taggers and raffles in support of Alzheimers Research.

We were able to have a concert in the Shire Hall but the lighting was too poor for good photos. We were able to sneak in one extra formal concert in the Caravan Park.

Charleville

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Many happy memories were relived as Graham and Deirdre performed their own Happy Hour  in the grouds of the
Cobb and Co Caravan Park.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The limited facilities open to us made it impossible to have a formal concert in Charleville.  However, the concert presented to the taggers by Graham and Deirdre in the Caravan Park was so special that no formal conert could have topped it.

Blackall

 

We held a concert open to the public at the Blackall Showgrounds.  The venue did not allow us to take many photos.  However we managed to get a photo opportunity wit Graham, Sherri, Gus and Rodney.
