AGM and working bee at Sue & Spike’s – we MUST fix the canopy! Also;

Deceased Routiers Estate Auction. Mr Brisset and Mr Crisp’s gear will be auctioned. Spike will provide further details, but in line with established best practice aka tradition it may involve dicing and drinking.

An event not to be missed! Times will be confirmed but probably 10-4.

Midday Working Bee at the Black Lagoon Fortress Thyngie at Blaxland
2.30pm Pool & Pizza Party at the House of Louise & Damien not far from Blaxland

Members and wannabe members are invited to celebrate what has been a fantastic year of triumphs. The Conferention was sung up, the bitter cold of Winter Camp defeated with industrial constructions, the fire ban at Ye Olde Medieval Fayre of St Ives was shouted down with a ‘bang’ and the Yarts Gallery of NSW Rembrandt exhibition was utterly stunned into submission by the authentic and yet somehow soft and tender appearance of the Routiers aka the Frill Necked Dutch Merchant Society.

There will also be an AGM at the end of the Working Bee at which some special announcements will be made, honours delivered and citizenships of elected committee members questioned.

So please put this special day in your calendars. More exact details will be provided to members and wannabe members closer to the event.
