Was talking to Lindsay from BLA today. The new OK Prowler Ultra 4.3 will be there for test paddles for anyone keen to look at this new kayak.

New Old Town Models

Camden - A new model coming is the Old Town Camden. Unfortunately new stock might not make it to Oz before the Convention... I happen to have the only one in captivity in Oz so mine will be there for anyone to look at / test paddle.

Vapor - And, the Old Town Vapour will be in Oz in the coming months, if anyone wants a look at one, ask Basser as he's got the only one of these in Oz, recon he might have it there as well.

Saranac (stanard / XT) - will be there for test paddle.


Cheers,

Fitz..

Was 15 sites left at Captain Logan Camp as of last Saturday when I went out to the site for a look.

I've booked a couple of sites for S&WFSA members 18 - 20 (I think)

Still plenty of site at Lumley Hill (pensioner point) but all powered van sites are taken at Lumley.

If by some freak all sites get taken, we will sort something out with SEQWater.  :youbeauty

Fitzy,

At this stage it looks like I will be solo on site 12 (leaving the wife and kids at home  :thumbsup).  I would be more than happy to share the site with anyone if need be.  I only have a small tent so plenty of room!

Regards
Colin

BTW- I came up with an extra Humminbird Fish Finder, so.... the first 100 paid entries received go into a draw for it.  :youbeauty

Here's some pictures of the camp ground & from Lumley Hill taken last weekend. Site is looking great. I counted 22 kayaks/canoes on while there. Awesome to see the numbers going there are increasing.    :youbeauty

Would anyone be interested in launching at Figtree Lookout site again this year so you can duck around the corner to fish around Platypus Cliffs / Norths Point area?

Fitz..
