Hi Tanya

To be honest, I don't know what will happen this year, as I have moved cities and so am currently in Melbourne. A couple of my Toowoomba friends expressed some interest in continuing this event tradition, but it remains to be seen if it will actually transpire. ;-)

If it does go ahead, I will pass your details on to the organisers.

Cheers,
Andrew :)
