Sounds good - I get my new car in July so would love to take a longer trip, plus I dont go up north enough - I find its always the traffic jam on the way back that seems to spoil the day for me...

Hopefully we can do it!

I'm still willing to host if your all willing to travel. :)  North Sunny Coast so 2 hours drive from CBD Brissy.

Either that or Kelsey and I really need a trip out for coffee! :)

Sunshine coast works for me any given Saturday.

I'm happy to host another one, just not this one - tho AM's right - we'd need both balconies!

We're getting to the pointy end of this pregnancy (34 days to go) and it's not looking likely we'll go the full distance. Jus has put the ixnay on any big man gatherings here in the next couple of months!

Lacehim's place is a bit further but has added advantages: much more space and a kick-ass pizza oven (that I for one am hanging to get back to).

Just get that second group working!!

I'm in tho, just name the date, provided I'm not delivering a bub.

Sounds great guys. I'm in pending child wrangling arrangements etc.  Happy to come up the coast or here in Bris.  When Kelsey comes to collect his machine Im hoping o arrange a mini-meet at Simply Coffee on Logan Road.  It's really worth a look. no 3rd wave, just great coffee roasted well and good attention to detail.

Seconded, tho I'd prefer as soon as possible - baby due on the 23rd and likely to come earlier than later.

Well fingers crossed Jack has that new group on it's way.  Pad out a date, and let me know.  I'm pretty easy.  :angel:

Ok I talked to the mrs and she didn't complain too much.  So, any takers for a coffee social at North Sunshine Coast (Peregian)?  Dates can be either Sat 14th or Sat 28th July or later if you want, say 10am-2pm.

I can fire up the woodfired oven and make a few pizzas, I have a KKTO & the lusso.  Happy for anyone to bring along a machine to play with or just drop in for a chat and a coffee (if the lusso can handle a crowd!).  No problem with kids, got a back yard, swing set etc.

Only 13 mins drive to Noosa Hopsital Kesley!  ;)

And you an all take a baby coffee plant away with you!  I've got far too many!

The 14th will probably still be OK, but by hook or by crook, the 28th will definitely be out for me!

Okay Poll is up for 7 days ( :) My first poll ever).  If it looks like a clear favourite beforehand I will declare a date and set it.  Get your votes in early! ;)  Times will be 10am to 2pm.

FYI from Brisbane CBD It takes 2 hours to get to my house.  Plenty of parking, the beach is 5 mins away, and only 15 mins from Noosa, so you could always make a day of it!

I've PM'd everyone that's responded previously to this thread (I left out a few that have already responded since the poll went up).  At least you won't all feel left out, and tell me you didn't know about it!

Why not car pool?  Worked for Kelsey and I when we came down the the last one :)

14th July and I'm at sunshine coast anyway. As long as it's during daylight hours, and I'm there. I can bring pizza toppings if required :D

And many thanks for doing so!

I can't come out to play this month due to killer work committments :'( Normally, any excuse will see me heading up the coast. Looking forward to the next one and some quiet at work...

Rightyo.  Overwhelming support for the 14th so I'm going with that!

Date: 14th July 2012
Location: (Please PM me (Lacehim) so that I know who's coming/numbers and I will supply address and phone number just in case you get lost!)
Time: 10am to 2pm (hopefully that will suit you Brisbane people)

Bring along anything you wish to show and tell (please please bring your lever AM, I would love to see it and have a try).  If you can bring some milk if you like it milky, a plate of something nice to share, or some pizza toppings if you fancy something fancy. :)

I'll supply the pizza's, I've roasted some coffee, but feel free to bring something along if you want to try it on the Lusso or AM's machine.  If you want to try a KKTO, bring some green and we can roast it up as a demo.  If anyone is interest I'll be happy to let you have a go on my KKTO.

As previously noted, kids are more then welcome.  We will be outside, but have a small cubby, swing set.

Fingers crossed for good weather!

I was considering posting up on CS, but the social thread seems to have 'disappeared'.  Maybe they don't want their members getting out into the real world?   :angel:

I might PM a few that I know, but then again I posted for a social there in the past and had a party on my own!  :'(

I'll be there with Pete & kids in tow - will PM you.

I'll suss out whether I can put an invitation up on CS.  Are you still a member there that people can PM, Lacehim?

Cheers

All sussed, Lacehim - all good to post it in the General Coffee area...The Social Snobs wasn't removed to discourage get-togethers, just because it was so under utilised so it was decided to just move it to General Coffee Related instead.

Cheers
Di

Thanks for the heads up Lacehim...I've been somewhat out of many loops this year and would have loved to come up but it is impossible to make next Saturday. Hope you fellas (and any fella'esses) have a fine afternoon.  :thumb: :thumb:

Thanks to Di for posting up on CS.  Link here http://w.coffeesnobs.com.au/showthread.php?32331-Brisbane-Lever-Lover-s-Get-Together

If you know of anyone on CS that might be interested let them know where to look!  CS deleted the social area and it might get lost in the a sea of posts about the forums "new look".  :pan

If your coming please PM me so I can get numbers.

A PM will be forwarded later this week for all attending with address etc. :)
