Hi again!

It has come to this yet again, that I must pester you very lightly. It is unfortunate but necessary, and I hope not too intrusive.

This weekend, the 1st and 2nd of December, we are going to try and push hard and get the last lot of work done for the year on Port Hack. It's been a very long process, and we've achieved an incredible amount so far. This weekend, we're going to try and do the last big jobs that prevent us from normal operation. If you want to come along and see what HSBNE is like galvanised into action, and to check out the incredible amount of work that has been done on our new premises, then this is a great opportunity to do so.

We will be changing our fenceline, fixing hundreds of meters of guttering, repairing roofs, panelbeating buildings, performing small miracles of carpentry, and generally building the remaining infrastructure for HSBNE to get up and running full time again.

It would be great to see you there. If you feel like you don't know how to help, don't stress. If you come along, we will teach you anything you need to know. We've had people learn all sorts of skills at HSBNE, from general building, real life problem solving, welding and operation of heavy equipment.

If I've managed to keep your attention, here are the Important Points:

We will be catering lunch onsite for everyone, thanks to Joel Chia. $5 for lunch to cover costs will get you a bowl of something tasty and a can of drink.

Weather wise, from Thursday 29th November, the BOM is predicting a heatwave for Brisbane. To this effect, please:
  • Closely monitor your health and hydration. HSBNE will provide plenty of water and staminade.
  • If you are feeling I'll or out-of-sorts in any manner, please sit down in the air conditioning. Take a break.
  • Bring clothing suitable for high heat. Lightweight materials that cover as much skin as possible.
  • Bring a big, stupid hat. It will be a lifesaver.
  • Bring sunglasses.
Lastly, only over 18's please. A worksite has inherent dangers and we cannot have children onsite.

Hope to see you there, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions, [address removed]

Thanks again for your time,

Joshua Hogendorn
