Typical Orr:

Aug 22, 2010 3:13 AM # 
so only angus and i arent there.. everyone else should be! :p nahh just kidding kiddies (:
Aug 22, 2010 5:55 AM # 
Gah! I just realised, i will probably most definately not be able to make it by 4pm as school only finishes at 3:30. AND mum said she likes to go to the gym on wednesdays so i don't think she'd like to take me. So i may not be there this week, i'll have figured it out by the week after though. Have fun though :)
Aug 22, 2010 8:43 AM # 
is anyone actually going next this wednesday??
Aug 22, 2010 12:38 PM # 
well i was going to go if anyones still keen
Aug 23, 2010 12:23 AM # 
Oh im at the stones gig as well (shall see you there angus!). Keen for week after when my shoes arrive.

ps i think (when it does go ahead) Rhi will be catching the train to hamilton station and i will pick her up and drive us into glendale from there (i finish up work at 4, so shall prolly be closer to 4.15ish by the time we get there), anyone else is free to join the hamilton to glendale shuttle service if they want!
Aug 23, 2010 12:24 AM # 
/ if you live vaguely in the same direction as maitland the 'lift home service' too
Aug 24, 2010 12:56 AM # 
yehh lets start the week after, maybe say get there at 4:15 and actually start 4:30
Aug 24, 2010 5:53 AM # 
good idea. so starting from 1st september wooo
Aug 24, 2010 9:34 AM # 
will be my last week in newcastle before i head to the land of the golden guitar ..
Ill be there!
Aug 26, 2010 9:38 PM # 
ok nice (: im glad we sorted this all out (: 4:30pm on the 1st September it is!! and we get to see Tamararama!! :p
Aug 27, 2010 9:42 AM # 
guys i won't be there this wednesday :( i can't run without busting open my stitches :(
Sep 1, 2010 9:46 AM # 
wow congrats guys. i was so sceptical about it getting organised. sure shows me :P haha. was everyone else at glendale track impressed?
Sep 1, 2010 9:50 AM # 
grr there was fricking heaps of people there we had to keep changing lanes!
they were very impressed though :P
Sep 2, 2010 12:03 AM # 
I was thinking i might be able to organise some bush ints at Brush Creek next week if anyone is interested? Light could be an issue though.
Sep 2, 2010 3:00 AM # 
i'm very interested!
Sep 2, 2010 4:37 AM # 
id be interested although starting at 4:30 and sunset at 5:40 doesnt leave us too much time.
Sep 2, 2010 5:04 AM # 
yeah but theres still plenty of light up until 6. and an hour and a half should be plenty of time!
Sep 2, 2010 5:26 AM # 
Cool, well i'll get onto that then. Tend to agree with alex, shouldn't be a problem. Even if we try to get there say 4.20ish just to be sure.
Sep 2, 2010 6:33 AM # 
hey josh, last time i was out at brush creek one section of forest had just had a fire and was ridiculously fast for newcastle standards. not sure what it would be like now, but it was sort of the section of bush right in front of you (and maybe a bit to the right) when you come in along the road from next to the tafe. usually where we start i think. hopefully i remembered correctly :P
Sep 2, 2010 10:52 AM # 
that'd be great Josh.R (: even though i chatted with you about this last night :p just give me directions and im in (:
Sep 2, 2010 11:01 AM # 
Angus Beef:
oh wow, bush ints... i am SO interested :)
Sep 7, 2010 4:20 AM # 
so what are we doing tomorow??
Sep 7, 2010 7:54 AM # 
Angus Beef:
yeah guys, whats the plan??
Sep 7, 2010 8:02 AM # 
run Tamworth 5pm at the hospital?
Sep 7, 2010 8:20 AM # 
umm no sorry Tamararama.. that's a bit far away for us.. :'(

sooo Josh.R.. are we meeting at 4:15pm and starting at 4:30pm again?
Sep 7, 2010 9:44 AM # 
meeeting where??
Sep 7, 2010 12:10 PM # 
i think we should all meet at Glendon Cresent at 4:15 unless jr says otherwise assuming the bush ints are still on. then from there if they aren't we can decide to either do a terrain run, terrain hills or go to the track. thoughts?
Sep 8, 2010 12:17 AM # 
Sorry bout bein awol guys. Not sure you will get a chance to read this at this late stage. Having trouble sourcing maps for everyone for the proper navigation ints i had in mind but was thinking something along the lines of terrain ints instead. Glendon Cresent meeting at 4.15 sounds good and we can decide what to do from there
Sep 8, 2010 1:43 AM # 
sweeeet, see you all there =)
