I'm sorry that I cannot make this one. I'm helping my mum redo her garden (its been five years in the planning).

hope you have a great time and the weather is with you.

Cheers
Steve

Just to let you know the weather looks fair for sunday. Intermitant showers.
We'll risk it for a swisskit.
I'll be offline after tonight so if you need to know anything ask today.
Don't forget lunch.

See you at 10am on sunday

Any photos of what i missed out on? :D


I only took one, rather fuzzy picture with my cameraphone when we were on the plant walk in Shotover.

I would have taken more but forgot or had my hands full of smoldering hay!

Just checked in, so looks like I'm the last to say many thanks to Nick for an enjoyable day.

Got a couple of photos, but I forgot the camera mostly.

A BIG thanks to everyone for coming along yesterday. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Thanks to Willowbark for her input on the plant walk. A very knowledgeable lady :) Thanks Povarian for the Coffee, and great photo's and well done Daniel for getting those embers. Everyone was vey close and I hope you can practice and crack it now. I'll do another one in the summer and Willowbark it would be great if you could come along and help out with the plant walk. Nice one :) a good day out

No need to say sorry Timm, these things happen. :( The main thing is you stayed safe and got back OK. Come along next time if you can make it. :)

Thanks Mark............. and I hope you stung your mouth on your nettle soup too :D Thanks. Yes we did have a good time.
It was a mild day. It did threaten to shower a couple of times but we were lucky. One thing about bow drilling is if you don't get an ember you're sure as h*ll warm from trying. Definately up for another one later in the summer. Thanks everyone for coming along. :You_Rock_
