SATURDAY MORNING CLEAN UP. The Scout Group has been most appreciative during past weekend get togethers the Australian CamperTrailers Group has volunteered to mow & whippersnip around the buildings within the grounds. This is not compulsory, however if you would like to participate, please bring your own brushcutters, mowers etc including boots gloves & safety gear. We anticipate spending a couple of hours on Saturday morning before it gets too hot & then sit back and enjoy the fruits of our labour ie improved access to the river. Please nominate what gardening equipment you will bring on the ice breaker.

THINGS TO DO. There are plenty of sightseeing locations not too far away, drop into the historic Canungra pub for a meal, visit local wineries, swim in the adjacent creek, or just relax and enjoy the company.

ACTIVITIES. An afternoon tea will be held on Saturday afternoon at a time to be decided. Please bring your drinks & nibbles to the center of camp.

Come sit & relax with a bunch of like minded people. Check the modifications others have done to their camper trailers to make camping life all that more enjoyable. You might meet as complete strangers on the Friday evening, but will part old friends such is the camaraderie.

You do not need a camper trailer to attend. Members without a camper are more than welcome to come along & get a first hand unbiased opinion of a particular camper trailer from their owners. Come along & meet the faces behind the typing. You are also very welcome to drop in for the day.

Please keep in mind that the group owners will not accept any responsibility for members & non-members actions during the weekend get together. If you decide to attend, it is solely at your own responsibility, including any side trips or outings during the weekend meet.
