Befriend Yokine Reserve Walking Group

Yokine Play Space

Start off your week with a casual walk and chat around Yokine Reserve. The group meets every Monday and walks along the footpath for a total distance of approximately 3km's (one lap). We meet on the grass oval area in front of the Yokine Play Space carpark at 10:15am (carpark opposite 29 Wordsworth Avenue with the coffee van near the changeroom area). All levels of fitness welcome!

Who's Up for an Op Shop Trail?

Dôme Café - Waikiki

The plan is to visit as many Opportunity Shops that you so desire throughout the morning & then we meet up for a lunch stop @ 1.30pm @ The Dome in Waikiki to compare our treasured finds. You don’t have to just visit the ones listed & you may like to share other ones you know of that are worth checking out. You can start anytime you like and you can visit only one if that’s your choice. I for one will be there when the doors open to cram in as many as I can in search of treasure & the challenges below. Everyone will take their own transport or of course you are welcome to car pool with a friend or two. The more the merrier but it’s a casual affair with you stopping whenever it suits you, take as long in a particular shop as you like or go like the clappers round the thrift shops. Why issue optional challenges to be a part of for the Op Shop Trail? Because We Can - and It Will Be Fun! First Virtual Award & Bragging Rights will be given for Category 1: The Best Valued Purchase of the Day! No price limit - go wild, dig deep into those pockets & secure the Treasure at your Earliest Opportunity. Category 2: The Most Expensive Found Treasure of the Day! Category 3: The Least Expensive Found Treasure of the Day! Category 4: The Most Unusual Found Treasure of the Day! Category 5: The Most Questionable - Why Am I Even For Sale? Item of the Day! Category 6: The Most - I Would Have Paid More for That Treasure of the Day if I’d Seen It First! Category 7: What On Earth Is It? Category 8: The Most Colourful Item of the Day! Category 9: A Musical Instrument Category 10: The Crown Jewels! With all these categories the only one you need to have purchased for entry to the category will be for The Best Valued Purchase of the Day! All the other categories will be eligible to enter by simply taking a quick pic on your mobile device as proof of nomination. It would be fun if all those participating in this Befriend Event wore something Yellow. A hat, a top, a flower, a yellow handbag or even a pair of yellow earrings! Let’s challenge ourselves to find each other out there in thrift shop alley & if a yellow item on someone catches your eye it might inspire you to speak with a stranger to ask if they are currently on the Befriend Yellow Brick Road Op Shop Trail? Even if they are not, oh what fun to share our Befriend Op Shop Treasure Hunt with others and possibly inspire them to join in or plant the seed for them to attend our next one! Can’t wait to see all the treasure we find & enjoy a catch up @ The Waikiki Dome afterwards. Some destinations are listed below but as mentioned before you may know of others or even be coming from a different suburb making your way to our final destination in Waikiki.
