@ Pjw - cant wait for those cookies!

@ Jen - the laptop is for the updates, DB will get SMS's and i will arrange with you if I may, to send SMS's for the birding update to you.

@ DB - well Zax warned us that we what we might be getting into meeting her, maybe we just need to build our own "natural barrier" :twisted: Cant believe just said that :redface: . Ofcourse closthes and that would be packed...it just not that important to list!

@ anne-marie: Paraphernalia is all the stuff we need to drag along to get the bets, carboard cut-outs, S100 rocks posters, first time safari outfits etc.
