    No Good Names Left is bringing a rotisserie, so it will be available for anyone bring 'chunks' of meat down.

    Note to self: "better get the power on down there"

    Otherwise bring stuff that can go on the smorgasboard table for the evening meal.

    I'll crank out some home made bread.

    I may even break out the potji pots and see what I can concoct.

    Right at the moment I would suggest dressing for cool weather. 7 days time it all might have changed but I'll give people an update closer to the time.

    I'll be coming down on the Friday morning, Rotisserie is available for all to use but we may need to steal some extra coals from the fire.

    Great stuff. The world will be a better place after we have sorted out all the global issues around the fire Saturday night

    I'm hoping that @shift14 will have stacked up the 8 hares down in my bottom silage paddock friday evening, and we can have a potjie pot of hare casserole simmering. All recipies for hare gratefully received.

    There will be a gas BBQ, a coals fired BBQ, and possibly @No good names left rotisserie all up and running Saturday avo/evening, just as long as @HuntBeta 's generator can handle the jandel!

    So no, I don't think we will have to revert to hexe and mess tins

    Weather: We have had a couple of minus 4s and minus 2s these past few days. But the average is creeping up and although Saturday does not look like being one out of the box like wed/Thur/Fri have been. But overnight temps look like being around 6 degree mark. So positively balmy for the CNI this time of year.

    Anyone want to come early, there's plenty of space to just chill out

    See you here.

    I'll bring the socket set, you turn while you drink 1 beer-then it's the next suckers turn to turn.
    Or I could bring a gearbox to run off a cordless drill.

    If someone can bring an extra cordless drill & a few batteries that would help.

    Beef rump on the spit Friday night.
