THE BIG WET FOR MARCH!

Here we are March- but Easter coming up fast- during March it was Congratulations to the Warwick Chapter of Caladonian Society celebrating -150 years ago their very beginning! - I was honoured to be invited -and help celebrate an incredible milestone! Some of Warwick Pipe Thistle Band members are to be congratulated-and were honoured on the night!  The dinner was a great success with over 200 in attendance from many places and many Clubs. Since then we have had serious rain event- huge rain-we are a bit sarurated- but what a wonderful start to the season. Dams are all overflowing- so is the Condamine -burst its banks -our valley is flooded! our roads are closed-but sunshine today-so will be back to normal soon . Hope you are all okay- so sorry for those badly impacted by the floods! Australia is a tough old Master! 

Love this bush- gorgeous flowers! 

The magnificent Warwick Pipe Thistle Band- marching in at Bony Mountain -a highlight every year.

BIG THANKYOU TO SOUTHERN DOWNS REGIONAL COUNCIL!

Always good to know our local Council are behind us- we have some new lighting/sound gear for our 2021 Festival. And we are very grateful- So it is full steam ahead with BONY MOUNTAIN IN SEPTEMBER. we decided to not run with Easter this year-due to my Surgery ( Feb) ,I'm on the mend but there is so much preparation -and time is flying by-- but it is slow-recovery takes a bit more effort as we get older! Plus our Volunteers we hoped for did not travel due to COVID- what a time we have all had-. So lets all focus on a wonderful Bony Mountain in September & we will plan for an Easter event for 2022 . Thank you all for your interest & your support- look forward to catching up in September.AND TO ALL OUR CAMPERS- REMEMBER THE SCARECROW CHALLENGE1 MAKE A SCARECROW- WIN SOME GREAT PRIZES! This will be so much fun! 

We are very grateful for all the support from SDRC and team.
