So far its you, Tania, MJ?, us.  The jumping castle for the kids is a good idea.  They can't swim, too cold for sure.  There is a net over so don't worry.

I think we should pick a location which is more or less central to everyone.

Not a bad idea but that rules out the kids

I would love to get together... however, this weekend is out, and so is the following for us.
Can anyone think of anywhere in Westville that would be good for the kids? Normally I would say Waxys or Frankies (!!!  :)) but kiddies make it difficult for everyone one else!

We are so widely spread that some of us will have to drive a little further than the others.  The only place I know where kids can play is the Spur.  If any of you know of another restaurant please let us know.

There is also RJ's which is pretty good for kids but may be a bit out of the way for some of you. I dont mind a braai at a park or at someones house and the jumping castle sounds like a really good idea to keep the kids busy.
