Well folks, it was a great day today in sunny Wollongong (can I say that, Ozzie?)! Many apostates turned up (albeit belatedly, much to Mrs Ozzie's dismay!) and after the mandatory exchanging of secret handshakes and gestures, the BBQ began. After waiting for an hour or so for a BBQ which functioned, the blokes performed the traditional Aussie male rite of charring huge lumps of meat into oblivion. After gulping down the food, much fine wine and beer, much gas-bagging was had by all.
Among the notables there were Mr and Mrs Ozzie, Prisca, JW83, Amos and hubby, someone else (what was his name again, Ozzie?) and family and my family and me. Pics below:
Here we see Prisca getting friendly with someone she met. (The JC convenes tomorrow!) In the background you can see Ozziepost getting his feet wet.
Here we see JW83 and friend going for a jog.
Various apostates greet each other with secret waves and other gestures.
