Having taken a look at the weekend weather, it looks like another cold front with rain is heading our way and arriving tomorrow afternoon.

So going to make a early call for the whole weekend and unfortunately it is yet another "NO GO".

Sorry folks but reckon that makes it the most unsuccessful winter we have had since starting SWG.
