Postby Bougy Fan » April 9th, 2018, 3:48 pm

So it's coming up to that time again - our annual show is less than 2 weeks away - Sat 21st and Sunday 22nd April 9am-5pm Saturday and Sunday 9am to 4 pm. Huge sales area out the back with lots of pots and trees and a great display of members trees at the front. Demonstrations at 10am and 1pm daily. A mere $3.00 entry - see you there !
Regards Tony

Is it that time of year already!? Thanks for the heads-up. Maybe I'll even get to meet Mel this year. ;)
Cheers,
Frank.

We have our BSQ workshop meeting on the Saturday, (starting at 10:30), so won't be able to visit the BIMER show until the Sunday...

Looking forward to it though!

No need for cash - eftpos facility is available and has been for the last 2 years. Just paywave yourself some great stock and pots. Averil will be doing the 10am demo on Saturday morning so hang around and pick up some tips from a great demonstrator.

Averil will be working on a large black pine so should be good. I will be doing the arvo demo. Not sure on what though. I have a nice claret top mel that i might use.

Last year the eftpos machine went walkabout (from memory being used in the sales area), leaving me unable to get through the door. Quick drive to the servo to get cash & I was in!
Tip for newcomers: The main car park fills up pretty quickly on a weekend. There's another big car park across the road, opposite to the Botanic Gardens turnoff.
