That makes sense Jane. Not sure why there is two.

I just found out there are 2 ooooby groups in Tauranga, should we not combine forces?

Cool Sat 10am it is then.  Looking forward to meeting everyone.

I am home this weekend so after a sleep-in will enjoy meeting all the Tauranga Oooby's at Domain garden centre.

Thanks Karen. See you there. Jane

Hi everyone.  I have been having phone and internet problems.  But back on line again.  I suggest that those interested meet up on Saturday at the garden centre on Domain Rd, Papamoa, at 10am.  I have no idea what is happening, but at this late stage, think its time someone made a positive commitment, and I will be there.  Hope I will see some of you this time.

I'm free and keen, if that is what is happening?  What did you have in mind Julie?? :)  

Comment by Jane Powell on February 21, 2012 at 9:26am

Hi Wendy, I have just joined your group. Is there an ooooby meeting this Saturday at the garden centre on Domain? That  is almost next door to me.

Has a time been confirmed for this meeting.?  Jane
