Sorry no photos this time
About 5th Sept. we received an Email from AMSA head office asking if we would be willing to participate in the 
Great Outback BBQ Campaign. 
The idea is to raise much needed funds for the Farmers doing it tough out west. The money is to be used to buy fodder, repair damage done due to drought, floods, bush fires etc. as well as food & clothing for the needy.
We put it to the boys & they all agreed it was a great idea. They said it should be held after the AGM on the 23rd Sept. ( which was postponed on the day) as that was when most members would be attending the shed.
Because a donation was involved it was decided to go a bit up market with the catering & we had sausages, steak, bacon, onions coleslaw & all the other normal trimmings. 
We were having such a good time everybody forgot to take photos of the event.
About 30 members stayed for the BBQ & at day's end we managed to raise $250 for the cause.
It may not sound like much to some, but we feel that for 30 members (most of whom are on pensions) it was a great effort. We even managed to extract dollars from old miser George!!!
We think Farmer Someone would say:
 "Thank you for caring"
Bateau Bay Men's Shed administration also says 
Thank You Fellas
