It takes time to organize an area for a meet up.  Where ever it will be held, best to start now with suggestions and ideas.
Cheers

We're too new to the goldfields to be much help. Anyway Mrs M just told me we're not going next year Sad I think she's just had too long away from home. We left in the start of March and apart from a few days here and there we've not made it back yet.

The bus is overloaded and the tyres are in poor shape so we are seriously heading home now. Tonight we are in Bilpin near Lithgow so not too far now.

For those who have never done a Muster I have to say we learned a lot from others each time. Not only that but each time we stayed on a bit and came home with more gold than any other trip.

I hope we eventually get there but if not I'll be wishing you luck and thinking of you all every moment you're out there 2016 FORUM MUSTER 490525052

Hi All,
time ticks away quickly and before we know it, the muster will be upon us.
So I gotta question for our members.  Does anyone know of a company who will give permission without the 40E process.  It would help big time if we can all get to a place without some hassles.
the only other alternative is going down the 40E's but that can get expensive.
so if you able to assist, all help is welcome.
there is also one more profiso, we need someone who can play a geetar and sing  Very Happy

Hi Forky.
probably looking at maybe first week of August or maybe last week. Well before it starts to get hot.
As to areas, seems most people head north now and the eastern goldfields are given a big miss. It really comes down to where we can get permissions to hold our little gathering.
I could put up a poll and ask for ideas for locations.
Cheers
Cliff

why do people prefer north instead of eastern goldfields , do they feel east is flogged?

you have hit the nail on the head and it's the impression I get.  the eastern goldfields still has a lot to offer.
seems to me that people only want to go to Cue or Meeka area. bugger that, it'll be full of tourists Very Happy

Hey Marti/Cliff
We are looking at getting organised for the new season.
Can you pop up a voting pole for preferred months for the muster? Maybe give options of May to September, then when we lock the month in we can work on dates and locations?
cheers Phil

We're heading to Shark Bay last week in April till the end of May. The SW APLA group will have their outing on 4-5-6 of June and we might be able to link up there. For us maybe July would suit best.

Thanks for doing the Poll Martin.
Here's a question, am I allowed to select 2 dates ?
Sometime in August would suite me but majority rules. So I'll go with first week in August.
Cheers

PS. I've cast my vote.

just thinking and planning this season and it has come to my attention that im not going to be home much this winter and therefor organising this years muster may become difficult for me to do diligently. would Cliff or anyone else for that matter mind taking over things a bit more for this year. i will still be available and will help of course but im finding it hard to make time to get into things with research, permissions tracks in etc. joan and bob have sent me some good info on an area and from what i have got to read it looks promising. i can email it to you so let me know your thought
cheers

I'm keeping a close eye on this discussion. I'm an expat 'Groper, now living near Sydney, and can't wait to get back on the real gold. I'll try and get over for a muster if it happens. I spent a season at Leonora with some small luck. As some have commented above, there seems to be a preference for further north these days, and I've heard some good reports of northern goldfields from guys I met in Leonora. They're all as far away from me as possible, so where doesn't really matter. August seems to have the vote. It was b-cold in Leonora in July, but daytime temp's were OK out swinging, and you can't beat the campfire in the evenings. Main issue in July will be rain, it can bugger up a whole week.

2016 FORUM MUSTER Empty GOOD NEWS TIME

Post by Bignuggs on Fri 04 Mar 2016, 10:30 am

Hi All,
Some good news. Thanks to the excellent efforts of the "GEMS" (Joan & Bob) we have permission from a company to access some ground in the Tuckabianna area.
It will be from the 1st day of August (for 1 week) with a bonus 2nd week for those wishing to stay a bit longer.
What we need now is a list of those who would like to attend. There is an agreement you will be required to fill out and sign for the company, more about that later.
Cheers
Cliff

Ok.  Here's the list so far and I'm sure there will be a few more to come.  Let me know if I've got it wrong.
To make sure we are all on track, everyone will need a WA Miners Right and be a member of APLA.

Joan & Bob (the GEMS) Joan says I gotta help drink some whisky which might be risky for me Very Happy  scotch doesn't agree with me much but I'll try  lol!

Cliff we'd like to say we'll be there but at this point we can't. We've booked the house sitter from 16th April until the 16th of July and we don't know if we can extend that. If you're sending out forms I'd appreciate a copy but I can't give you a definite answer at the moment.
