Watcha Dooen @ Dooen GTG 23 - 26 Jan
Jerilderie Jaunt is now at Dooen. Last two were long weekends. It was the Australia Day Weekend. Now someone has put a work Monday on the middle. The main days will likely be Sat and Sun however I will be there all four days and you are welcome dor as long or short as you like. Love to have some or all for 4 days
That places it a little over 400 km w / sw of the previous 2
It is about 1/2 way between Adelaide and Melbourne on the northern edge of Horsham.
Not for the faint hearted as this is the first year at the property and well, lets say she's a little rough when it comes to living quarters.
There is a shed and will be at least 4 lathes on hand to use.
For anyone who wants to rough it there is plenty of room for a swag, tent or caravan.
What will be
show and tell
Buy, swap, sell & give away
A yarn or three
Food, food and more food
Oppurtunity to use or learn on a lathe
Fire heap challenge
Oldgreybeard may give some photograpgy and photoshop lessons
Maureen is talking of bringing her spinning wheel
Raechell will have her dolls and be happy to show anyone interested
What to bring
Anything for the above
A wood working project/s to do or show off
Metal working as well if so inclined
Areo guard and a hat
Some of your work
Fire Heap Challenge
There is a heap of fire wood and cut branches etc. The challenge to make something from that heap. What ever is made must be minimum 90 % from that heap and the scrap metal heap.
Two prizes will be awarded
1st place as judged by those in attendance
1st place as judged by the forum (if I work out how to do a poll. Should 1st both be taken by the same piece then the forums choice award will go to second place. If Springwater makes it he will be allowed to enter the piece he started on last year)
Any ideas or donations as to what the prizes may be are most welome.
Horsham will provide the greatest range and closest accommodation for those who do not wish to rough it. This is a wotif link but feel free to look up locations by other means
The house would be on offer but there is no floor to sleep on
Any demos or workshops are more than welcome as would be a lesson on how to use a mill or metal lathe
Please let us know your level of interest in attending.
This will be updated as best I can leading up to the event but can only edit this post for first 24 hours so as the numbers grow it will be in other posts
6) Oldgreybeard & Maureen
7) KBs PensNmore
8) PittWater Pete
9) Dirk_pittwater 9
11) Simplicity and Sally
12) Uncle Al

I am keen but other factors may come into play
Edit: Assuming I get there will most likely have Julie with me and we will bring our tent.When you are dead you donít know that you are dead. You feel no pain, everyone else feels the pain. Itís the same thing when you are stupid.

It's only 1032Km each way, shouldn't be a drama. I will have to work out which day/s I will be there, but I will be there on the 26th at least.
Thanks for organising,

It all looks ok from here, so you can lock us in as coming, Dave.
Since Matt has already booked the Queen Anne room we will bring our tent. It lives in a drawer in the back of the ute anyway so no problems there.
I might even try to finish the project to put the solar panels on top of the ute canopy before then. You need solar panels to charge the batteries to run the Engel to keep the beer cold and the food fresh. Until this came up the next camping trip was Easter.
It will probably only be for the Saturday and Sunday at this stage, but you never know.
