A very big Thank You to Hugh & Elizabeth for hosting the meet last night and to Elsa for assisting with the arrangments. :clap: It was great to see some familiar faces and to meet some new faces. It's always so much fun to listen to stories of experiences in the Park.

May I echo Tawny in thanking all involved as well: Hugh and Elizabeth for your hospitality as well as Elsa for being instrumental with all the arrangements. A most enjoyable evening spent with like-minded people! Thank you again!

Yawn ... morning folks... !!!!
Thanks to all those Mites who came to the meet. We couldn't sit outside as it was raining but we opened the lounge doors and it cooled the airdown.
Lovely to see you Sparrow, Tawny and SO, Elsa and Klystrom , and Lee lewis and her Daughter.. and of course Val and Dungb.We have taken a few photos must just ask a few mites permission to publish their faces ... and there was not a provita in sight.
Val and Dungb left a short while ago and I hope the weather improves for their drive to Port Edward. They both had a real breakfast this morning. and said the room was comfy .. For those that were there last night The" lady "with all the complaints left this morning!!!!. Her employer could find no fault with the room but she believes the room was no up to standard.. anyway glad they went.. sorry mites I may have been a bit grumpy after she gave me uphill.
Hope Val posts some piccies soon . She uploaded all her KNP photos onto flicker while she had a faster connection.
