The final SHE party of the summer

Well this was the last SHE party of the Australian summer of 2007. We had run 6 special parties over the summer of 2007, 3 of them on boats on the harbour and all being a great success with numbers. This final party was on the Sunday 25th March and was from 12 lunchtime to 5pm with the after party at the famous Darling Harbour Cargo bar. We were very lucky with the weather, we seem to always be with our boat parties always being really hot and as usual we had lots of comments of everyone having a good time 🙂
Here’s our poster for the event, our graphics artist girl is putting together some excellent posters for our events lately, and this one was as usual a great example.
Here we are setting up the DJ equipment on the top deck of the boat. There were as usual 3 floors of live music, that’s 11 DJ’s, 4 musicians and 1 vocalist singer to setup and organise.
Graham and I just before we arrive at the wharf to pick up the customers. We were goig to both wear the sailors uniforms but I couldnt arrange mine in time unforntalty, maybe next time.
We arrive at the warf at the Opera House to pick up the 400 ticket holders to fill up the boat and start the party
The boat is starting to fill up just before we leave to stqart crusing aroudn the famous Sydney harbour.

Sunday Kayaking

Last Sunday the weather was great, really hot and bright and lovely. I invited friend Mat and his new German girlfriend that’s just come over from Germany to live here for a year and my flat mate Damien to go Kayaking. We went up to manly Photo of Manly here which is a good kayaking sport near the main ocean but protected from the large waves and surf on the ocean side.
It was a great fun morning and we kayaked over to the old disused Sydney Quarantine station some photos here and didn’t get too sun burned 🙂 Here are some photos of me a Sanna and Mat and Maren, Damien took the photos so he didnt get in them unfortunately.

Lotus update

Well the delivery date of the Lotus has been knocked back to mid April after many apologies from the Dealer 🙁 but something positive has come of this, the dealer spoke to Lotus Australia to explain that I wasn’t a happy chappy from the delays on delivery and they have arranged for me to be a guest at the well respected ‘Burrows drive day’ at Eastern creek race track Sydney for the day, driving one of their shiny Lotus Exige S cars. A good result I’d say!
My good friend Chris Southgate will be coming with me to look over the usual examples of millionaire owned exotica that turn’s up, Ferraris’, Lamborghini, Porsche’s even the most rarest supercar of them all the Mclaren F1 from the early 90’s turned up once, can’t wait for March 28th now!
