The poor Queen is going to have to wait a further three weeks to celebrate her birthday this year in Western Australia. Thanks to CHOGM, the public holiday for HRH’s birthday is now Friday 28th October. As Mt Frankland is a bit of a hike, we’re changing the dates so that the full three days is available for this trip rather than trying to squeeze it into a normal weekend. So, please note that the Mt Frankland climbing trip will now run from Friday 28th – Sunday 30th October 2011. I myself am rather pleased it won’t clash with the AFL grandfinal like it usually does!
