Sunday Surf & Slumber 11th March

S U N D A Y 1 1 t h.
Wake up late (sounds good so far, doesn’t it?) and saunter to the pristine beach at the Kurrawa Surf and Life Saving Club for a long and relaxed breakfast on their beach balcony. We’ll hang around, ogling at the semi nude sun worshippers, counting the waves and snickering at those who foolishly decided to drive here and miss all this! Bring your swimmers and a towel. At some point we’ll think of something else to do that’s not quite as hectic as we have to preserve our strength for tonight's BBQ. It’s all go on the Gold Coast.
BBQ at the Pool. Wander downstairs in your swimmers to the spectacular, Grecian inspired pool to catch the sunset and enjoy a drink or three before the Aussie barbie with the rest of the crowd that drove here.

Hi Rod,

Sending in following emails some photos of Sunday night's barbecue in the
lovely grounds of the Aquarius Resort where some of the Gold Coast attendees
stayed.  The committee did an incredible job in putting on the trad Aussie
barbie...medium rare steaks, chicken, prawns and every salad imaginable.  It
was great way to wander around and catch up with everyone, loads of fun, and
we rolled with laughter as Gopal Lalchandani and Johnny Monteiro traded joke
for joke nonstop for what must have been at least an hour.. Afterwards
courtesy of Laara and Denny "donating" their apartment as the venue, Phil
launched his CD to a rousing chorus of "I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill"
and it was back to the old days of rock n roll.  And the piece de resistance
with drum roll - A Little Bit of Soap.  Hilarious, a great night and the
best music thanks to Phil!

Laara, Bobbie, Jack, Dennis, Gopal, Johnny and Ron.
