October 2016 Members, Family & Friends BBQ
It started off as a normal Saturday shed day, 9:00am start with the sound of the hot water urns boiling ready for the first welcome cup of coffee to be poured.
Not soon after the men had the sheds full of noise with the machines in full swing. No, no noise just the so of the urn boiling for the 10th cuppa and the men catching up with their mates on what they had been doing since Wednesday.
The morning rolled on, machines humming, urn boiling and men talking !!!!!!!!! I mean working on projects. The fellas on the CNC macking were working out a radius problem ?????? while Arthur, Mick and Stephen goy stuk into tiding up the “BUNKER” and the others went about doing their projects. Morning tea was great and the BBQ Boys put on Bacon & Egg burgers for us and they were delicious, just a sample of what was to come later.
11;30 came around and the “Family and Friends” arrived for lunch and were they in for a treat. Minute steak, sausages, bacon, chicken kebabs and fried onions all prepared by the loving and skilled hands of the BBQ Boys. After everyone had had their fill of great food it was time for the major lucky prize draws.
