    We are having a fantastic weekend here at camp Keen, It started of with a quiet night at Nimbin bowls club on Friday night.
    Saturday we cruised into Byron and meet up with the rest of the group, then convoyed back to Lismore. The procession into Nimbin was great, but I cant tell you how many kombi's were here this year.Saturday night was a shared dinner and drinks around the fire with not to many sore heads the next morning.
    Sunday morning started with a yoga session then we all cruised to Annie's Country Tea Gardens & Nursery. With lots of planning by Lorraine our lunch orders were faxed in ahead of our arrival. Quite a few people left after lunch and some went into Nimbin to watch the procession.
    Thanks again to Lorraine and Andy for all the hard work you put in for making this weekend possible.
    I also want to mention the 15 foot high KC symbol that had been carved out on the hill to greet us. I have uploaded my pictures into a folder for anyone that wants to have a look.

    As always we realize to make an event like this happen a HUGE amount of work goes into this
    & to Lorraine & Andy who open their home up to the KC & work for days to have it ready for us all to invade...
    A BIG THANK YOU :heart:

    As in every year I try to give a little gift on behalf of everyone in the KC...for letting us all stay there & be apart of this wonderful weekend.

    For a gift this year I didn't have to seek too far...
    At Dubs By the Pub/Pie KellieBee took the most beautiful pic of Monty...
    the moment I saw it I knew that was the gift
    I asked Kelly to make a enlargement for me...& she gladly said yes...
    So to you Sweetie a big HUG & THANK YOU...:heart:
    as Kelly did this for nothing for us...

    When I received it I went & had it nicely framed

    This is the Presentation..
    & thx must go to Jullian who took these pics with my camera for you to see
