Our meet up is about people having a walk at what ever pace they want and stopping for some socializing. It is friendly, relaxed and casual and there is no pressure for power walking! Walks are Sundays at 4 (and during the week on Thursdays at 5.30) On average there is 15-20 each week (and some people don't have time to rsvp). IT REALLY IS NO PROBLEM IF YOU DON'T HAVE TIME TO R.S.V.P.- YOU CAN 'TURN UP' BUT IT IS APPRECIATED IF YOU CAN SO THAT WE HAVE AN IDEA HOW MANY ARE COMING.
We stop for a drink and the $10 steak or $15 turf and surf meal at the Jade Buddah (and the FREE CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN that includes fruit and marshmallows) - AND it is happy hour between 4 and 6- the beers are $350 - Schooners of tap beer and Cosmo, Caprioska are $5. You don't need to eat if you don't want to- just stop for the drink or keep walking.
YOU CAN JUST MEET FOR THE MEAL IF YOU WANT AND NOT DO THE WALK- THE TABLE IS BOOKED EVERY WEEK- (UNDER ' MEET UP -WALKING GROUP') AND IT IS NEAR WHERE THEY COOK THE FOOD- SO JUST MEET US THERE AT 5 IF YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE WALKING!!
If it rains we still meet and catch the ferry over to the Jade Buddah and eat (so you never have to worry if anyone is going). It takes about 1-2 hours and fur kids are welcome (but cannot come into the Jade Buddah of course). Dress for walking because we are all VERY casual! Please note- WE LEAVE EXACTLY AT 4.
If your really keen - you can join Mark (when he attends- nearly every week) and do two laps!!!- come back to where we first met and do the walk again and some of us RUN across the bridge on the way back- (but most people walk)
DON'T FORGET THE FANTASTIC WALK ON THURSDAY NIGHT FOLLOWED BY AN EXCELLENT DINNER AT THE STORY BRIDGE HOTEL!!!!!!!!!!!
AND YOU ARE ALSO INVITED TO JOIN OUR OTHER GROUPS-'OUT AND ABOUT BRISBANE' AND BRISBANE SOCIAL SINGLES' FOR OTHER GREAT ACTIVITIES AND PEOPLE TO MEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THE COST IS $1 FOR THE WALK (IT IS THE ONLY TIME A FEE IS REQUESTED AND IT IS ONLY THE SUNDAY WALK) - IT PAYS FOR THE MEETUP FEE THAT THE ORGANIZERS HAVE TO PAY TO USE THE MEETUP SITE AND PHONE CALLS AND BALLOONS ETC FOR ALL THE GROUPS! -
so you can go to all or any events on 'Out and About Brisbane' or 'Brisbane Social Singles' and never have to contribute for the meetup fees at any event!!
* PLEASE REMEMBER TO STAY ON THE WALKING PATH DURING THE WALK AS THE BIKE RIDES ARE ON THE PATH NEXT TO WHERE WE WALK. THE HOLMAN STREET CITY CAT TERMINAL IS RIGHT NEAR THE 'JAZZ CLUB' AT ANNIE STREET - KANGAROO POINT
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!
