No, I don't have a cricket bat, but have a pack of 20 tennis balls I could bring. Was hoping that someone else would have a cricket bat.

I can print-off another large PIA Sign....

Looking out the window today, hopefully rain won't stop play on 3rd Jan.
When the vote is finall in, what time is the kick off? We will bring flags again.

Reason: added more info
Polling has now drawn to a close and by a majority vote **Henley Beach** has been nominated as the peoples choice to be the location for this 3rd January's PIA meet-up!!!!
I am unsure about timing because of the weather, but a decision needs to be made. If it is hot then a little later in the day might suit because some folks won't want to be out in the blazing sunshine, then if it's cool earlier will suit. Oh, decisions! I think we should make it 1.30pm by the jetty and take our chances. If it's a hot day be sure to slip, slap, slop; and you know what they say about mad dogs and Englishmen!
Thanks Si for offering to print off another sign, it will be a great marker for those who will be unsure whether we are the PIA group. And thanks Bugermeister for offering to bring a cricket bat - hopefully no sporting injuries will occur, but I know there will be a few nurses there and at least one medical doctor!!!
I have it on good information that there is NOT a BBQ at Henley Beach, so I guess those who want will have to bring a portable one. Otherwise a picnic is a great idea or there are plenty of restaurants and takeaway places around.
So, hope to see you all there for an enjoyable day. I might do some labels for us to write our names on as it makes it easier to mingle without being embarrassed about forgetting the names of others. Any other ideas to make the day enjoyable are most welcome.
Thanks for arranging this meeting and please book our slot on the beach. No good at rounders or cricket but what the hell we will give it go.
Name badges are a great idea as like you say you meet so many people, go away and forget their names!!
Looking forward to 3rd Jan 2009. Happy Christmas and New year celebrations to all of PIA.
Martin and Val
Yes, will be ther, although like Martin & Val, pretty poor at cricket and rounders but will have a go. Good idea to have name tags, so many names, only a short memory!!!
Martin, no creeping of for lemonades without letting us know, an hour and a half for coffee was a little excessive LOL.
Hope you all have a great Christmas and Happy New Year. See you all on the 3rd
We will try and make it as well. Looking forward to being able to put faces to some of the names on PIA at last.
Am having a freebie pedicure that morning compliments of Jarvis Toyota (we bought a car from them). Hope the sand doesn't mess up my new nail polish! You'll have no trouble knowing who I am as I'll have the best toes on the beach.

Just pushing this up the list now Xmas is over. If anyone is feeling a bit cut off why not come and meet some new people? Great for kids to get an airing as well. My family won't know anyone else either.
Thanks to Ken for trying to organise this.
Henley Jetty 1.30 3 Jan
We would love to come along also, had a great time at the last one, and made a few friends also.....
So see you all again at Henley on the 3rd.
Thanks to Ken.
