Default Wishing you all the best!

Just wanted to wish all you guys at the GAC all the best and have a great time, I know that you will.

Can't even make the meetup tonight as I can't get the night off work due to taking Sunday night off to celebrate a massive cricket GF win (which is the reason for my non attendance on the W/E).

Can't wait to hear about the weekend, been wondering if there will be many religious attending or even protesting for that matter.

Will definitely attend the next one though!!!

Well said JG: Best wishes to everyone from me too. Really wish I could have hung on to my tickets but life throws some little surprises sometimes. I hope there is another convention now that the stage has been set.... (some govt funding from the coffers that we all contribute to would be nice next time too). Enjoy.

Good morning team! Thanks JG - congrats on the win but damn, couldn't you have thrown the game so you could attend?

It's just after 7 am and I have a stomach full of butterflies.

Can't wait to start meeting up with everyone later on today

And yes, I shall provide evidence!

Gotta go - have to get the boy off to school then make sure everything's ready, etc etc and head into town later in the morning.

See you all over the weekend, via Tapatalk and pics

No more sleeps left, yay!

Yeah guys and dolls, I hope you all have a great time. Expecting piccys as well.
Remember the ones that are not there wish they were, so no gloating.

I will be there in spirit. Ha.


Edit: And all of you stay safe, drive carefully if you are driving. No drinking and driving.
Have fun but keep it real.

2 am? I couldn't have done it. I shall try to pace myself tonight ... er, and tomorrow ... um, and tomorrow night

Logic, what's the room like? Are you coming down to the centre at 1ish? 1pm is a loose time, what with flights etc.

Do you have my mobile no?

See you soon!!

Thanks wolty. Now you behave yourself while I'm away or you know what will happen when I get back

I think I could play up to my hearts content. You will be on such a high that all my transgressions will be forgiven.

Thanks JG, I'm getting fired up for it.

Shame I couldn't make the pre meets but I am doing some last minute birthday dinners instead of on the weekend.

I think my dear mother is itching to find out where I am going but she won't ask ha ha
