Harry called to say he was free Sunday and to plan a ride.

Rather than same old stuff, I came across this location on the Central Coast:

Date: Sunday 30th January 2011
Meet Time: A respectable time of 9:30
Departure time: 10:00
Meet Place: Pie in the Sky at Cowan (Old Pac Hwy)
Lunch: BYO BBQ


Mangrove Creek Dam is situated around 30 minutes drive from the Gosford exit on the F3 Freeway. The drive is certainly worth the experience. Mangrove Creek Dam is an ideal location for a quiet secluded picnic featuring excellent BBQ and picnic facilities.

The rock filled dam is 80m high with a concrete face and provides storage for regional urban centres of Gosford and Wyong (over 285,000 people). The embankment is made from low strength sandstones and siltstones as these were available on site during the construction.

Mangrove Creek Dam Facts

Wall Height = 80m

Maximum Water Depth = 65m

Total Storage Capacity = 190,000 ML








Thoughts or suggestions welcome.

Are we seriously doing the BBQ thing or are people just bringing a cold packed lunch?

If everyone brings $5and their drinks I will talk with ed and get meat and rolls since the 2 of us have more storage than you guys. How's that sound

I am fine either way. I have reasonable storage when I add my saddlebags.
I guess I am saying I will run with the consensus!

Ok, sounds promising and a good turnout also.

I'll bring:

Onions
say 3 dozen sausages
3 loaves of bread
Sauces
Oil
Matches
Knives/bbq tools
Bread board & plates (were bikers, but were not totally uncouth lol)
2 bottles of soft drink
Cups

Roddy, if you wanted to grab some more drinks that would be good. If people wanted steaks, beers etc, feel free to bring them.

Did I forget something? Let me know.
