Canasta in Waikiki . . . Anyone? Befriend Host Jeanne (pronounced - Jarne) has just joined the Befriend team & is keen to find people who can already play Canasta or are interested in learning how to play the card game. The Canasta crew intend to meet up each week on a Tuesday morning from 9.30am at the Waikiki Dome - situated @ the Waikiki Village Shopping Centre on Gnangara Dr, Waikiki. If like me you haven't played this card game for many years come along as I'm sure we'll all pick up the games rules very quickly. Look for the Yellow Flag and challenge yourself & others to a fun game of Canasta whilst enjoying a refreshment from the Dome's Menu (at your own cost) in their stylish & comfortable surroundings.
Hello members, slip on some comfortable walking shoes. With this meetup we will have a slow-ish short (roughly 4kms round trip), walk and talk along the scenic South Beach foreshore, on a dual use path, with slight hills as it goes through the dunes. Then we'll have a coffee/drink at the cafe after (if you want). What to bring :- some money for coffee/drink/treat, suitable clothing for the weather, water bottle.. Where to meet :- Meet at picnic bench closest to the cafe nearest to the bike rack (where the people are standing in the above photo). If the weather is really bad then meet inside the cafe and we will just stay there, chill out, have a drink and a chinwag. How to get there :- catch the Fremantle blue CAT from the train station and get off at the first stop on Marine Tce After Douro Rd Stop ID: 10444, then walk to the cafe. free parking available near the cafe. hope to see you there.
Join Befriend Host Greg every Tuesday at The William Bertram Community Centre from 10am til 2pm & share his passion for crocheting & his joy in sharing his skills & knowledge with others. This meet up is a casual craft catch up hosted by Befriend and no matter what skill level you are at everyone is welcome. Be inspired by others or challenge yourself to master a new design. If it's your first time - your welcome to just pop in for a cuppa & observe before you take up the threads and find yourself hooked! We look forward to meeting you & sharing some time together creating amazing pieces.
There are many places to investigate around the Perth city centre and we aim to find some of them. The CBD Walking Group picks a place to go every week and if the weather turns bad, we stick to the arcades and covered spaces. Join your fellow city walkers as we traverse the city paths looking at buildings and spaces we often commute past by bus or car but never look at more closely. We meet inside Citiplace Community Centre at Perth Train Station every Tuesday at 10am. Join your fellow city explorers to learn more about inner Perth. Look for the yellow flag at Citiplace reception just inside the sliding doors and see you there.
