    Northern Beaches Biofuel Users

    Hi folks,
    Although I started up the Lower North Shore Biofuel Users as a loose social/support network a while back I have now moved house (hopefully for a LONG time!) to the Northern Beaches.

    Who would like to have a catch up and work with me to set up a Northern Beaches Biofuel Users Group?

    Cheers,
    Cameron

    ps I am still happy to turn up for a catch up with the Lower North Shore crew but I will have to leave the organising of any get togethers to the others. The last one was fun.

    I'm in Berowra which is close enough for a meeting in the Northern Beaches somewhere. I'd be keen to meet up one weekend.

    OK all it requires as far as I am concerned is for us to pick a day, pick a time, pick a place and then turn up and meet each other for a BBQ/beer or whatever.

    An afternoon was plenty for us when we met up for the Lower North Shore Biofuel Users. The hard thing for us last time was to decide on a suitable venue.

    I am new to the area but I would suggest:
    *a Sunday afternoon
    *at a club/bistro somewhere for a counter meal or
    *at someone's house or
    *at a local park/reserve
    *somewhere that miserable weather won't totally screw everything up.

    Plenty of parking nearby incase people want to pop bonnets and kick tyres.

    Any thoughts/suggestions?

    I am happy to hold it at my place in Narraweena as long as I don't have to cater for it - strictly BYO/bring a plate.

    Cheers,
    Cameron

    That would be a good choice, and I would be happy to bring a plate etc. Or if you could find a local park in your area with good parking facilities, with your house as a backup in case of bad weather.

    As for dates, any time from mid-July onwards is OK for me, as long as it is booked with plenty of notice.

    OK happy to have it at my place - we actually have a park/reserve that backs on to it so we get the best of both worlds!

    So that is place sorted.

    Date? .... As you might have seen in a previous post I will be off on an adventure in the Simpson Desert from mid/late July until end of Aug so perhaps we could aim to do it start of September?

    I know that is a long way off but I would either have to do it pretty soon or leave it til I get back (obviously ...)

    Re: Northern Beaches Biofuel Users

    OK so we unfortunately lost most of our Northern Beaches postings in the 'Great Server Crash of November 2007' or whatever it was so I thought I would come back to this thread and get us chatting all things Northern Beaches and biofuels again.

    Here are a couple of gems for you:
    Did you know that Warringah Council has bought a diesel mercedes vito van that it is going to convert to an eco education van and run on biodiesel?

    Did you know that Warringah Council is currently getting biodiesel delivered and runs many vehicles on it?

    By the way when and where is our next catch up - we have had 2 people offer to host so we had better take them up on this before they change their minds!

    Cheers,
    Cameron

    Hi Cameron,

    I will talk with the wife in the morning. I think we would be happy to host that one. We live near roseville chase bridge...so kind of on the northern beaches. I should have my new biodiesel reactor up and running by then. I think Saturday the 19th would be good.

    Cheers
    Alex

    Great - thanks Alex.

    Please let us know as soon as you have the thumbs up from The Boss.

    Who else would be planning to come along?

    Further to that anybody prepared to now put their hand up to host the NEXT one (maybe 8 weeks later?)

    Cheers,
