    Good day Meetup-ers,

    Weather reports say it will likely rain in the morning then lighten up throughout the day, so there will be no need to be there very early tomorrow. We still plan on going rain or shine, I will be there around lunch time. Look for posts on Meetup for updates, feel free to call me also.

    If you are wanting to do the hang gliding you should plan on doing it on Sunday at 8am, it's projected to be a beautiful day with 0% chance of rain.

    We have around 60 to 70 people say they want to go, PLEASE KEEP YOUR RSVP UPDATED.

    Thanks and hope to see you between Saturday to mid Sunday!

    April 29, 2014

    • JULIO

      Sat730am or sun730am for hand glading depends on weather.

      April 29, 2014

    • Jason M.

      Sweet I'm going to come out Sunday morning..the chance of bad weather looks much less that day. Looking forward to it.

    Just emailed:

    I just confirmed we are a go for Wallaby Ranch this upcoming first weekend of May. Owner Malcolm said he just newly renovated the pool, volleyball net, and other things. He has gotten lots of phone calls from Meetup members and if the RSVPs hold out then we will have our biggest turn out there ever. Weather reports shows a minority chance of scattered rains Saturday and 0% chance on Sunday so it looks like it will be nice.

    We encourage bringing food and drinks to share as we normally do around the pool but that's up to you. Supermarkets are nearby by if you decide to later on.

    Remember, if hang gliding to get there by 8am on either Saturday or Sunday. It's been months since we've visited and have always had a great time so we look forward to it rain or shine!

    Are dogs allowed at this event?

    March 9, 2014

    • Jen

      So is there tent camping or something where dogs would be allowed overnight? Thanks.

      March 10, 2014

    • JULIO

      You would need to bring your own tent, the dogs can be at the balcony but not inside the cabins.

    Grammy nominated band Della Mae is putting on a special concert this upcoming Saturday at Wallaby Ranch so our Meetup event there will be pushed back to May 3rd. After being scheduled to be pass through town and hearing about Wallaby they became exited about stopping by to hang gliding and decided to put on a show. Sorry for the delay, I know a lot of people have been psyched up about going, the owner and I have have been getting a lot of people contacting us. It's a rare opportunity for Wallaby's owner so he had to jump on it. We look forward to having another blast there in less than 2 months!
