Thanks also from myself and the little one.  KK, your generosity was greatly appreciated as always and the Candy Canes.. well one thus far... was enjoyed immensly by a little girl who rarely gets such treats (not that we're mean just watch her intake of sugars, salt, fat etc).

Thanks AM for hosting, it was great!  Hope AMT didn't mind the invasion! :)

Everyone looked like they had fun, and it was good to talk face to face.

It was also nice to have company of the drive down and chat to Kelsey. :)

Totally buggered now though.  Time for a few beers and a sleep.

PS.  Thank KK for the sheet of metal, totally forgot about that (Again) and now I have another project over the holidays. :)

Nice day was had by all, because of the nice company
Mrs AM & others apparently liked my coffee

Apart from coffee and AMs coffee tree garden - approx 20 trees, we had some international food and coffee paraphernalia displays

Roasting displays from the I Roast & the KKTO went down well
Great banter & laughter helped the time to fly

A big thanks to our host AM and family for putting up with us odd bunch  :angel:

Not too many photos were taken. As far as I know, that's the only photo of me (In the red shirt).

Brett has a few.

It was a fun day, good people, good conversation, good (and interesting!) coffee, jerky, machines and tampers to play with.....


Who could ask for more?!?!

Thanks AM for hosting, we had a great day.

That reminds me. I was meant to find out where the wife got my water container from. She got it from this local Toowoomba mob: http://www.highcountrywater.com.au/

They might be able to put you guys on to someone more local that has them.

I do feel sorry for the fella. Working mad hours and having such a hard marker at brew time  :tearhair: Makes me appreciate my other halfs coffee compliance. Maybe the minore  does the job  :D
