Can I assume or should I confirm re your speciality being available  :question:

Judging on that post, I assume I shouldn't try and compete with Springbok's Jerky?

If that's the case, I'll bring cake.

Also, I've gone from 50/50 to almost certain now.

RM, not sure it's possible to have too much jerky.

Springbok's Jerky is called South African Biltong

What we need is some home brew ginger beer or other substances to partake in... Just to add a bit of extra oomph to the day.

I will bring a sweet plate, and a batch of cold brew. That is assuming Springbok brings Biltong or Jerky. If he is not, I will bring jerky instead.

Biltong and Droe Wors it is - Jerky is always welcome - I'll bring some Rusks as well - Rusks go well with coffee when youre sitting on the veranda surveying the land and contemplating life... and Rugby... :coffee2:

If AM sets up a roasting & cooling station in a shady spot I can set up the KKTO and roast beans that you bring along on the day
We will stick to 600 gr lots
Then you can take the roasted beans home for later on

Great!  Would love to meet you Brendan (coincidently so would my wife after that order I placed yesterday *yikes*) and am looking forward to the gathering.  I'll be there early AM with a little girl in tow.

I know that area really well... just a block away from Coffee Guy. My wife's family live near the roundabout on Dickson st.

Edited to add - how often are those maps updated? The shots are REALLY recent, of my area at least.

Oh okay... I can work that out.  Nice pool BTW... And a boat also no less.  Very flash. Kel and I know that area very well having lived up on Buckland Rd for a number of years. Great Aquarium store nearby with Clayield Aquariums and a great equipment supplier with Aquariums R Us.  Millie may have to pick out a nice fishy o take home. Discus are cheap right Kel?

Boat ? Pool ? I must be looking at the wrong thing. I see a solar power station with a house under it and what appears to be AM's car in the drive but no boat or pool

Don't mind me feigning ignorance.  I'll head for the big house with the reflective roof and the forum logo. Nice AM!

How do people feel about pretzels ? I'm good friends with the owners of king of cakes ( german bakery) and should be able to wrangle some for the meet.

Oh give me a leberkase on semmel bread with sweet senf any day. That is all kinds of awesome.

We just don't know how to do processed meats over here.

Nein... senf ist so sussen.  Mochten sie Anglish Mustard.  Das ist sehr gut!  Wo ist der Umlaut?  Now, how many Germans did I offend with my opera singer's guide to pigeon deustch?  Good news, when I sing in german all the pigeons can understand me!

Coming from South Australia, where there is a great variety of  manufacturers, i have to agree.
Queensland sucks when it comes to good quality smallgoods. The only decent bakery is King of Cakes. With relatives coming up for Xmas, they have been instructed to bring "CARE" packages.

Poppy seed cakes are awesome.

Brett, there's no way I could compare senf to english mustard!

Then again, my memories could be tainted by the fact that every time I've had leberkase I've been wandering around Austria. Every time I go back, it's the first thing I ask for.
