Thank you to Carol & Peter Hubble, Brad Howlett, Karen Wilkie, Steve Millington, Andrew "Sully" Sullivan, Michael Hegarty, Dave Coad, Grant Stump, Dean Chamberlain, Richie Law and Brendan Adams for their work with today's BBQ at Bunnings. Grant deserves special mention as he was not scheduled to help today but he stepped in to fill the breech.

Thank you also to Banjos Glenorchy for supplying the bread, to Robinsons Meat in Glenorchy for the bulk of the sausages and to Fresh Cut of North Hobart for supplying the onions.
