Yes, its on again, tomorrow (Saturday). Its not an AFF event, but comprises AFFers, guests of Buzzard and RooFlyer to reach our maximum allowed 8 guests at the Rockford winery. I think this is our 4th year? Looking forward to meeting adventurous traveler @henleybeach . And @JohnM has finally agreed to grace us with his presence (Qantas schedule permitting!)

Actually, I was there only a month ago, so I hope they've changed the menu!

Anyway, I'm currently ensconced in the Hilton, hoping that @penegal will guest me into the lounge at some point :cool: Or anyone else? 🙏

From a month ago:

Menu (the Fat Bastards and Mary Washingtons were lovely!)

Seems a cosy little elitist group! How does one weasel in in future? Or is there some secret sect which one needs to be inducted into?
In aware of one invitee who ‘got a better offer’ 😳 ( I’m sure that wasn’t the case.)

And I don’t think any group with me in it could be called ‘elitist’. 🥴🍷😳

The number of Stonewallers on AFF is increasing like crazy, so suck up to your forum mates now!

On a serious note so sad I will miss it - I am sure a fabulous time will be had by all.

I just have a real prob with locking in dates - maybe next year? 👍

Have fun - the weather in Adelaide is much more pleasant this evening (well it will be once the rain blows through and the wind dies down) and should be lovely tomorrow - bloody awful yesterday

Yesterday's visit must rank as my driest ever visit to Rockford.
