    Sunshine Coast Get Together

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hello all,

    CS member angermanagement and I have been talking about getting together with a group of CS members in January (about 15-20th) at Pioneer Coffee at Yandina (they dont know that yet) for a social outing and chin wag. Maybe a cup of brew too.

    If youre a Sunshine Coast local or visiting around that time why dont you join us. We have 3 starters so far and Im sure that it will be the more the merrier.

    Once I get an idea of starters (if any) Ill tie up the loose ends.

    Cheers
    Tony

    Ill be there, unpacking permitting.

    The 29th is the AASCA National Championship at the Gold Coast, which Im going to (just to stickybeak, not compete!) so anything other than that day, I should be good for.

    Cheers

    Angermanagement has PMd me to say he meant December 13 to 23. I guess theres no reason we couldnt do it twice though.

    Im interested but it all depends on the date. Maybe it could be a regular monthly or bi-monthly thing?

    Ask them if Tim can do some coffees for you. Youd think the current Australian Barista Champ would be good for it ;D

    Hi all
    Ive spoken to Tim at Pioneer and he said 1.00pm would be a good time for him next Friday 18th December.

    He might join us for a coffee and maybe even show us around etc.
    Short of something serious happening, Ill be there for sure.
    See you all next Friday 1.00pm
    Regards
    Tony

    Hey AM
    It was under the table on the floor when I left. I thought you knew it was there.

    Nice to catch up with a few of the boys... and girls!

    Maybe we can make it a (sort of) regular thing.
    Every time I get on the CS site or communicate with members (is that what we are?) I get to learn a little more. Thanks!

    Re: Sunshine Coast Get Together

    Well, a group of us got together to talk coffee etc yesterday on the Sunshine Coast... Pioneer Coffee at Yandina to be precise and Tim Adams, the current Australian Barista and QLD Barista Of The Year hosted.

    Present were Anger Management (AM) with AMW (Wife) and AMD (daughter), BeanBruin, SunnyCoaster and yours truly ShotGun and better half.

    It was great to catch up and put names and faces to some of the stars of CS. Tim gave us some of his valuable time and expertise and gave each of us 250g of his Herbaza, a SO bean. Apparently Tim used the Herbaza in competition a few days ago and it was extremely generous of him.

    On behalf of all of us Tim... Thank You!

    Cheers and Merry Xmas.
    Tony

    Re: Sunshine Coast Get Together

    Hey guys. Sorry to not see this before christmas. I was down at the Sunny coast over the christmas period and would have loved to have caught up with some fellow CSers.

    I do live in the CS wilderness up here in Mackay after all! ;D

    I do return regularly to catch up with family ( mum and dad are at Palmwoods and I always swing past Pioneer at least once during a visit) so will keep an eye out for any future catch ups in the future.

    Cheers,

    Craig.

    How timely - I was about to put a post in asking if there were any such gatherings on the Sunshine Coast - I will see you all on Friday 18th, 1.00pm at Yandina. Please let me know if there is any change to this!

    Bib that was Friday 18th December mate...

    Nothing arranged for January yet, is anyone interested? I doubt Tim will be there much because hes getting ready for a comp but it might be a good time to get together, have a coffee and introduce ourselves.

    Yowie country AM. Kilcoy. Ive been looking to get to those CS get togethers but they always seem to be on the weekends which is my working week. Cant afford at the moment to take weekend off. Customers always give me hell when i do.
    Strange people up that way... Reminds me of that *show * "Deliverance"....

    However as my wife is fond of saying to me....

    If ya spend all ya time looking for the NEGATIVES... *You will find them (lots of them) and get caught up in the negativity and self implode..

    Thus look for the good and find a balance and acceptance of those you can not change.. *Then she looks me in the eyes and says... *Thats what I have to do with you every day... Then she smiles and kisses me on the cheek and pats *my head.. And then gets up to make a coffee *

    Aint love grand * *

    So with that being said and the scene set; I guess there might be a great coffee up your way * *

    Next trip north... Will drop in and do a Secrete Shopper *on ya... *

    And dont go doing something silly with that statue of the Yowie, until had a chance to sample ya wares.. *Too much of a fright and I will go away puffing on those lung lollies and distroy what left of my taste buds..

    All thing being equal could be about two weeks away before I need to be up that way.. *Any cheep accom for a CSér needing to spend a night away from home... sniff snifel... *[smiley=beer.gif]

    You get all the cool toys. I wish people left me pressies at the back door to fix. I love taking things apart, fixing them and giving them another chance at being useful. Maybe theres a future job in that for me?

    Next time your up this way let me know...

    ... and if any CSers are wanting a get together maybe we can figure out a date.

    Haha but maybe YOU are the social director... :)

    Shotgun started this all off but I think hes a bit busy after the holidays. I doubt it will matter when we have it so why dont you think up a time when you can make it greg to start us off and everyone else can let us know if they can make it.

    Any ideas about a Venue? Everyone happy with Pioneer???

    Pioneer is fine with me. I have a appointment next tuesday at Maroochydore and could make it then but i suppose that would be a bit short notice for others. otherwise how does 15,16,or 17th Feb.sound?

    Would have loved to come - stayed an extra few days in Budina after the Aus Barista Champs. Checked out Pioneer with Makin and had a bite to eat. Im back in Melbourne now.

    Has anyone checked out Caffiene Culture in Maroochydore. Danny pulls some pretty good shots.

    Greg,

    I might give Tuesday a miss only because Ive got a big day on Monday and the kids will probably need a break from the car trip. Im up for the following week at Pioneer. Can we make it Tuesday or Wednesday. Maybe about 10 or 11am ish???
