Let's have a pool party with some Cheeky Drinks!

  • December 1, 2012 · 6:15 PM

       

Now that the warmer weather is here and Summer is fast approaching I think it's the perfect time to host a pool party! My house at Mt Gravatt East is the venue.

 

There's a huge pergola area, so you're all welcome... well maybe not ALL 1100 of you, but I think about 50 would be great! 

Bring your togs, towel, favourite music, your preferred drinks and some spare coins to throw in for some pizzas. There will be dips, chips and nibblies provided by me.

    Shame on those 15 that lack integrity.

    Thankyou everyone for coming... (poor form by the approx 15 people who RSVPd yes and then didn't show up or notify my or take themselves off the list because I catered for you to attend :-/ ) We had a great night with loads of laughs, a few swimming, lots of new friendships formed AND there was no cleaning up for me to do! Anyone for some more pizza?
    I have 4 Hahn Superdry beers of someones and some boardies wrapped in a beachtowel to claimed... please message me :-)
    Thanks again and see you at the next Meetup!

    Sorry for not attending your pool party. I was moved off the waiting list the day of the pool party and never received an address. I didn't even know I was on the list to go to the party until after the party started.

    • Beth

      This is a perfect example of why people who don't intend on attending an event should update their RSVP as soon as they know they aren't going to attend. Double booking is annoying unless you know for sure that you are going to BOTH events. People who want to attend, miss out when others double book Meetups and then only go to one. Hopefully meet you soon Donald and sorry you missed out :-)

    welll I for one am sorry I was unable to go or cancel my RSVP. But I was stuck driving from tasmani over the ferry than from melbourne to brisbane with a cat dog a 4 yr old and my daughter . I can tell you I would have preferably been at the pool party. but at least we got here safe.

    Did ask earlier in the week but if anyone is coming from the north side and has a spare seat would be happy to share petrol costs
    Thanks

    I will send out an email to attendees early next week with more details and will email my address on the day before the party, Fri 30/11. There is a bus stop only about 70m from my house on Creek Rd. It is walkable also, from Logan Rd or Broadwater Rd (Logan Rd end near the Baptist Church). I am not far from the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds. The closest bus services are 174, 184, 170 & 598 or 599

    • Beth

      Oh Catherine... my thoughts are with you and your family. I am sorry for your loss. Take care honey x

    Thanks Beth for having this party at your house. It's very generous of you to do this. It's meant to be really hot on Saturday so i'm looking forward to cooling off in the pool. See you then.

    Perfect. It's gonna be so cool. Can't wait

  • Beth

    Not long now! I'm really looking forward to the party... just have to hang fairy lights & get a spot light for the pool!
    $5 each for pizzas would be appreciated. I am ordering 25i(incl GF base), 3 pcs each??? should be enough plus nibblies that I'll provide.
    Please BYO your own drinks & stubby coolers for beers or drinks in cans/ premixed bottles, & if you prefer to drink wine out of a glass, perhaps a wine glass! I'll buy some plastic ones.
    There will be a couple of eskies & a laundry tub with ice, otherwise you could bring you own little esky or bottle cooler.
    Lastly, when you come to my house... make yourself at home in the kitchen & lounge, but please respect it. Do not enter any of the bedrooms & most of all... meet some new friends, have fun, have a dance, maybe a swim and a great time.
    My driveway can fit 6-8 cars, plus parking on the footpath so please squash in. I'm expecting 60+ people !!!!!
    The address will be emailed on Fri... No gate crashers please!

      Hi Beth Again thanks for inviting us to your house and going to all this trouble. I will be there with my platter of nibblies to share with everyone - not sure whether it will go around 60 people though LOL.

      November 28, 2012

    • Beth

      Thanks Catherine and Raewyn. Great of you to bring a platter to share Raewyn. It's a little self indulgent actually because it is on my bucket list to have a big party.

      November 28, 2012

  • Beth

    Totally unrelated, but if you want to do a little Xmas shopping before the party, there is a twighlight market at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds (cnr Logan & Broadwater Rds) from 3- 8pm!!! It is just up the road from my home

    November 28, 2012

  • Ian l.

    If anyone is coming through from the north side through the valley would be gratefully to share a lift and happy to pay for petrol[masked]
    Cheers
    We can do karioke on the way
