Thanks guys for turning up last night at the lounge.

Here is a summary of what we talked about yesterday;

ATTENDANCE
There are now 12 people that are definitely joining on the parade and another 11 maybes! (check list of attendees on the event page:
https://www.gaysurfers.net/events/active/mardi-gras-festival-in-sydney/attendees/
To join you must be a surfer (gay, bi, straight… open minded is all we ask)
There will be many more people joining closer to date, but at least we have a keen core group that is big enough to go ahead now!
