SUNDAY Paradise found down by the river #2

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: SEE DISCUSSION AREA BELOW.

 

Due to the success of the last Casuarina meetup, I've scheduled this meetup again for those whom missed out on the fun!

Here are the details:

Hi there,

I found an awesome place to go swimming and just relax by the riverside under the trees on a hot day.

BYO lunch and drinks and anything else.... inflatable rafts, games etc.

Casuarina Sands is only a short drive from Canberra and well worth visiting! (See pic attached).

I have several seats available in my car if you need a lift from the city, please let me know. Bring friends and non-meetup friends for what will be an awesome day.

My number is[masked] 463. Ps. There is no phone service at Casuarina Sands. Meeting point will be between the bathrooms and the river. There are two carparks, so make sure you're at the ones WITHOUT the bbqs.

Also, if there is bad weather, I will pospone to the Sunday. All will be confirmed by Friday 17th.

Cheers,

Naomi

    This is my only way of mass communication that I can think of, your numbers have been noted.... I will end you all!

      Haha don't scare the newbies with your humour. I think I got you good Top Gun

      January 18, 2014

  • Iain

    Naomi you are a genius by changing everything until tomorrow. Imagine being stuck out at the cotter in this nasty weather!!!

    January 18, 2014

    • Naomi

      Haha. Thanks Iain. It was a risky but well thought decision!

      January 18, 2014

  • Naomi

    Thanks again everyone for changing your plans at such short notice. I hope you can understand why... I even changed my flight to later so I can make it!

    My sincere apologies to those whom are now unable to make it. On the flip side, we still have a very strong contingent of people whom are able to make it to the river on Sunday.

    I'm sure the message got to all, except possibly Kirby, Chris K and Emma. If any of you have their number or email, please let them know the changes.

    Have an awesome weekend, see you all very soon!

    Naomi

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION: CHANGE OF DATE FROM SAT TO SUN

    Hi everyone,

    The BOM weather report says 39 degrees "Hot. Partly cloudy. The chance of showers and thunderstorms from the early afternoon." With the potential combination of extreme heat and thunderstorms, I have decided it is best to postpone this event until SUNDAY.

    The weather forecast for Sunday is 32 degrees "Partly cloudy. The chance of showers."

    I hope you all can make it... if not, please come along to another event soon.

    Cheers,

    Naomi

    1 · January 17, 2014

    • Naomi

      Yeah, sorry Aobo and NouNou, but I didn't want to put anyone in that situation... too many factors for a perfect fire... storm.

      1 · January 17, 2014

  • NouNou

    i got the email, it does change things a bit, should have just kept it the same day with such short notice, the weather mans never right anyway, and i like being brave,but i can see the concern if your in the water and a storm comes...

    January 17, 2014

  • Amanda

    I can't make Sunday either.

    Still keen to brave the heat and possible storm to take a dip on the Saturday though, and will be there from 12:30, if anyone would like to join me :)
