Bloem Meet 2009

Unread postby pantera leo » Wed Oct 07, 2009 11:02 pm

Hey all Bloem Mites how about a meet again, I think it's long overdue!

Thought of holding it on the 21 November when it's also the Stiffnecs first B-Day and making it a big bash, but now also considering the 27th with it being the Forum B-Day! We could then do a double Birthday Bash :dance:

I was thinking of doing a nice braai/picnic at the Botanical Gardens seeing we are all Nature Lovers or should we say Junkies!!!
Please feel free to post if you have some suggestions, would love to hear them!

Hope to hear from all of the Bloem folk and to see you all at the meet!

Sounds good to me Pantera, the 21st would suite me better, but lets
hear what the others have to say.

:yaya: Count me in! The Botanical Gardens sounds great to me, having a braai and a walk around :mrgreen:
The 21st sounds good to me, the 27th might be a problem for me (although I have the day off then, it would depend on the time of the meet then)
Already looking forward to the meet, lets show all the other 'mites how bloemmies 'mites do it!

Thank you Pantera leo for this suggestion! :thumbs_up: :clap:

Visited the Botanical Gardens today to see whether it's dry enough so we don't have a mud wallow party going and all seems fine! Even if it rains some more then I saw some spots with a bit more grass! The gardens are looking absolutely beautiful after the rains we had thus far and I can't wait to get back there!

:dance: Will be at the Gardens from 8:15! So if anybody wants to come a bit before twelve for a bit of birding please join me! (It's the Stiffnecks B-Day after all!) Will have a RR tied to my backpack! :wink:

Hey Spookie no unfortunately not so if you will need plenty of tables you should bring some along we unfortunately do not have something like that! Mind you at the entrance there is one maybe we should hijack it! :roll: Please do and then maybe together we can get a few lifers and make Mamabird proud! :thumbs_up:

Thanks Billyf and Micetta will do hope all of you guys can join in next time! :wink: Don't worry Micetta will try our best with photos but the weather forecast says it's going to be quite cloudy!

Hey all thanks for all the kind words and will clink on all the forumites tomorrow that could not join! GrannyB if he wish to hijack the cake by all means but he'll have to get some meds from the pharmacy as he'll be sick the rest of the weekend! With more than 2 slabs of dark chocolate, cream etc. in there it's pretty rich(Just so anyone don't get such ideas!)! :twisted:
