    To our Waikato friends.

    I have sent a message of support, and of request to reinstate one of our long-time members in grownups, to management with a request she be reinstated immediately.
    I do not know the reasons behind the banning, but banning people who have been the backbone of grownups for many years stinks.
    If something is said that management dislikes in an open discussion, then they need to look whether the existing management is up to the task of doing its job.
    If she is not reinstated immediately, i will rethink whether its worth staying in this grownups group . No doubt others will think likewise.

    Whoops, seems Nigel wasn’t having a go at SF but in a very roundabout way was trying to convey to us that yet again SF has been a naughty girl in criticising the ‘powers that be’ and got herself banned again. People who hold the strings should not be so sensitive but should listen to people’s opinions before jumping in and banning them. She loved that I jumped in and parried my sword, lunged my spear and filled my quiver with arrows ready to do battle for her. They don’t call me the Irish Warrior for nothing!!!!!!! ANYWAY I’ll take over the booking at the Olde Creamery for her till 25th outing so SF doesn’t have to worry about it.
    Will start a list towards the end of this coming week. Cheers

    Thanks Don and Gypseyglen for doing your best to get behind Silverfern.  I am not sure for what reason she is banned, and yes i totally agree Don, silverfern is a backbone to our group, and worth her weight in Gold as the saying goes.

    Hang in there Silverfern, your entitled to your opinions as we all are.  When posts are made on here, it is hard not to take some things to heart as we sometimes do when it is not meant to be taken that way. I have been guilty of it my self from time to time.

    Thanks Glen for taking over the booking for this month, at this stage i hope to be there if my daughter, Cuddly can take me.  Will keep you posted.

    Hi folks, starting the list for Saturday 25th March, 12.30pm at Olde Creamery, Kaipaki Road.

    Let me know as I’ll be ringing them on Friday morning to confirm numbers. I don’t know if you guys have been there but its not an easy place to just grab a couple more chairs to squeeze people in. Last time I went with a group of 15 they sat us at three different tables. It didn’t bother us as we played musical chairs throughout the outing which was fun.

    🙂 Hi! I just discovered this group and wondered whether it’s closed or are you accepting new members?

    I live in Hamilton and suddenly find my regular “go tos” are busy with work from home, grandbaby, teenage angst, Alzheimer suffering mother and poor health. I seem to be the only one sometimes feeling lonely and at a loss.

    I would love to know what you offer and whether there’s space for one more.

    Thanks heaps, Lynne

    Welcome Lynn, yes you are very welcome to join us. We meet the last Saturday of each month and we try out different Cafe’s and also take it in turns to organise(which is a very un-onerous task…lol) I’ll put you on the list for Saturday 25th if you like and if you want to txt me 027 696 7886, we could arrange for you to come out with me. Then you’re not walking in trying to find a bunch of strangers. Cheers
