Free paddling on Brisbane River (Active Parks)

This is part of Active Parks program by Brisbane City Council. There will be 4-5 boats for newbies so the more paddlers the better!
http://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/whats-on/type/Recreation-programs/active-parks/index.htm

In a free introductory session they show us through all of the basic techniques of dragon boat racing!
http://www.brisbaneriverdragons.com/about/introductory-sessions
U don't need any experience and they provide everything, just bring a hat, sunscreen, towel and water.
U can attend 4-5 free introductory sessions and if really keen, then U can join them for proper training sessions.
I will update U with more details once we have more info.
If U have any questions plz call or SMS me 0401026369.

    Looks like we will be around 90 people (including other meetup groups: Brissie & South East QLD Explorers, Happy Hikers) so that will be great fun! Plz have a look at the latest update from Steve from BRD Recruitment:

    Both the weather and tide times are favourable. It should be a fantastic day. Parking - Subject to weather over the next couple of days, the BCC have approved parking beside the Dog Off Leash area. Parking attendents will be on duty to assist with parking. Coffee Van - Cappacinno Xpress will be on site from about 6.30am for those of you who need a heart starter in the morning. Coffee at normal prices. BBQ - Our club will host a BBQ. Request a gold coin donation to cover costs. Charity - The Salvation Army Red Shield appeal door knock occurs over this weekend. I believe they may be attending our event and requesting donations from participants. Looking forward to a great day with a great bunch of people

    Hi All,

    The Colmslie Recreation Reserve (according to google maps anyway) is not at 400 Lytton Rd. 400 Lytton Rd is in the industrial area of the Port of Brisbane.

    Col Gardner Drive runs through the Colmslie Recreation Reserve although I am not sure if this would appear on a car GPS. Does anyone have a suitable GPS address for this location.

    All the best,

    Justin

    Hello there!

    I'm new!!

    I am in a show for Anywhere Theatre Festival called Metamorphosis!

    It's an amazing production written by Steven Berkhoff

    We open on the 14th and run until the 19th of May and as the festival is all about alternative spaces we are performing in Northshore Shed, 257 MacArthur Ave, Hamilton.

    We are also running a pozible campaign where audience members can donate or buy a special ticket to a preview on the 13th - as part of this ticket you also get bubbley and delicious Dello Mano brownies and a gift bag from our sponsors Yay!! There is only one day left for this however so if you are keen to donate or come along check out www.pozible.com/metamorphosis

    So let me know what you think and if you will be there - I am performing so I would love to meet you all after the show!!

    Can't wait to meet you all!!

    Warmest Regards
