Feb Sun 3rd
NextGoBush AGM
Our club's annual General Meeting, where we all get to catch up for some Lunch provided by the club, and vote in the 2019 committee. All members are encouraged to attend this meeting as we do need a quorum for the vote to be legitimate, so if you can't make it, be sure to request a vote by email and advise Skip that you can't attend. Venue is at the Swan Street Vineyard, 64 Swan Street, Henley Brook. Arrive for 11AM, Meeting at 11:30AM, and Lunch at 12 Noon. This year, lunch is going to be much better than sausage sizzle... Sandra and Craig are going to cater a propper sit down lunch of roast chicken (standard and spicy), vegies, and salads, european style.

Fri 13th - Sat 4 May
Gibb River Road (3 week trip)
Leaving on 13 April and back in Perth on 4 May.  A tour of the north of WA taking in the iconic Gibb River Rd, Kalumburu, the Bungle Bungles and Karijini.  We’ve done it before but we would like to experience just after the wet instead of at the end of the dry.  This is a “walkabout” tour with an idea of where we are going and what we want to see but we are going to be flexible depending on conditions and how we feel.  We will most likely miss seeing some things and divert to see things we hadn’t planned.  Very happy for members to join us. (Members only).
