It’s been a hot day. Some people would probably say very hot.
I headed off to the Emu Park singing ship for a bit of a sea change. When I arrived there was a very welcome breeze. It was quite a bit cooler and very refreshing. Almost like walking into an air conditioned shopping centre.
Intentional mistake right here. Today the singing ship is alive. Singing it’s song of so many years, and loud for all to enjoy. Although meant to remind us of the wind in the rigging of an old sailing ship, I today it is more a church organ recital. The chords progress up and down a windy scale from high to low and back again. Every now and then there are some nice pleasing low notes.
This monument nearly did not make it to our little park on the hill. The original vision was at another scene. Eventually with a lot of very hard work by many people it has become an icon for all who visit the capricorn coast.

The 34th Oktoberfest is well into the planning stage. The band has been confirmed and the date firmly set for 27th October 2018.
Groups are already telling us that they are getting prepared. We are expecting more people to turn out in costume than ever before. The costume shops are going to be short supply of Lederhosen and maid outfits so don’t leave your run too late.
If you require accommodation on the coast for this event, make sure you are booked early to avoid disappointment. Get in early as possible.
If you are one of our regular volunteers, or if you are willing to volunteer to help us this year, give us a call. We will be contacting our regulars very soon. New volunteers can approach any of our member with an expression of interest, or even use the contact form on our web site. There are usually some areas and time slots that fill quickly.
So there it is. We are getting closer and the well oiled organizers are looking forward to seeing a huge crowd this year. All the usual fun and if we can manage there just might be a few surprises. My lips are sealed.
