Meet up in Waikato? was created by Telly
Telly and her boys are off on a July school holiday road trip again (Nelson last year). We're off to the North Island this time and will be in Thames visiting family for a week or so. It would be great to meet up with some of the Waikato based LSBers. I have a family party on Saturday 12 July so could do something on the Thursday or Friday before or Monday after. Anyone keen? Children are optional as I can ditch them and leave them with my mum.

Goats: 4 boers + 4 kids (all does[:D]), 1 saanen + 2 kids, 1 toggenburg.
Chickens: Barred Rock, Light Sussex, Araucana, pekins
Pigs now in the freezer

I'm keen (we can talk goats :D ) I'm just outside of Cambridge but can get to Thames or somewhere up that way...

If there are no volunteers further north I'm happy to host an lsb gathering at my place :D

I'm happy to drive over to Hamilton or nearby. I'm always keen to talk goats of course :D . It would be great to put faces to names since I'll be up that way. I'll need you locals to suggest a venue though.

Hey Telly, if you want to head to me, I got goats and they are Boers!! :-) You can come see my babies!

Quite happy to hold a coffee morning here...if no-one minds the mess or wants to see my mess!! :( Don't worry though I do have sanctuary where there is no mess!

That would be great too MM. I'd love to meet you and your boers. I have three children, animals to look after and two part time jobs so my own house isn't exactly spotless. I don't mind where but would love to be able to meet as many of you as possible.

I've just thought that maybe the Thursday isn't so good as I might still be driving up from Palmerston North then. I have family there to visit and a course to do also. I think I'll drive back down the NI on the Tuesday, catch the ferry on Wednesday and drive down the South Island the same day.

Where are you mm? Kate has also offered. Is that more central for anyone likely to come? I could also visit two places in one day of course. Better spend some time with my family[;)] Goats are very tempting though, esp with kids.

It depends on where people are coming from really, I'm a little closer to Hamilton, and I don't have a car to get anywhere unless I'm picked up. Also if your are coming down SH1 I would be easier to get too for you. But I'm easy, I go with the flow :D

I vote for goats - the more the merrier. I'm not 100% sure of how I'm splitting my time between the two NI based lots yet so if possible could we go for the Monday (13/7) so I don't offend either lot by shooting off to see people I've never met (and goats) instead of my nearest and dearest. If Friday suits better it is possible.
