As soon as I read you had booked one trip Jimny I knew it would be Crossmaglen!

I'll be there again this year though from the list possibly the only one I'll go on too!  I'm not sure but I think I didn't get my head totally under last year but I did manage to get the same leech twice! (After stupidly knocking it off in the water first time).

Is it just me or are there several locations on the list again that we let him know were absolutely terrible last time??  What was the one East of Glen Innes were nobody found a thing, not even sign but then I got lucky with my one good stone outside the designated area (but there with his permission because he thought he had worked it over fully)?  Was that Aroona Glen?

PETER - why also put Rosemeadow on the same day as Crossmaglen and Boolabinda?  These are the only reasonable sapphire places all on the same day?  Also - can you confirm Rosemeadow is to a different part of the river this time or whether it is the same area?  Like Jerry it looks like I'll only do 1 trip with this format.

Thanks

Hi ALFERS....back from leave and ready to stat some posts.

Question received about the Oban Site Field Trip 3 Thursday - PLEASE NOTE Only 25 Adults and 5 Children AND 4 X 4 ONLY

The site is on private property south of Haystack. The site from what I have been told was an old Gold mining site so lots of heaps to explore and the Oban River

When the site was inspected it was decided to restrict it to 4x4s as the track is not well define and one rocky gully to cross.

On a side note the booking site still wants us to list as a company rather than an individual.  ???

Went to the doctors today.  Really have to lose some weight.  :(

So it will be no sugary stuff and daily exercise for me which all means lots of digging at Minerama for me.  ;D

Hi Jerry,

I think that sums up the case for most of us!!

I keep telling my wife that I need to do more fossicking to help control my weight but she just doesn't believe me!!

Mr. Sydney


Thank you for your email. Allow me to apologise now as I went or leave just after your posting as I resigned a Tourism manager from 1st Feb to take up a job in Melbourne. However do not be alarmed I am still doing some casual work for the Council and Minerama and a very capable young lady (Navanka Fletcher) has been employed as the Events Coordinator. Navanka is a local and has just completed her Bachelor of Tourism (along with having some very practical experience to boot - not all academic!!!)


To be honest I cannot answer that question and will pass over to the Committee to respond. There is Minerama Meeting tomorrow and Navanka will respond following that meeting.


Regards


Peter & Navanka
