It’s been a couple of years since our last “blokes go…” (check out that little Hamish in the photo!) and I know that many blokes have been hanging out for this year’s event. Well it’s not too much longer to wait. BGB’08 will be held at Afterlee from 5pm Friday 21 Nov (arrive when you can) to 3pm Saturday 22 Nov.
This year our focus will be to build on all the good challenges from the 50men Brisbane trip. We really want to bridge the gap between wanting to be real Christian men and actually being real Christian men – between the desire and the doing. And to do that, we need each other – iron sharpening iron. It’s not rah-rah chest beating stuff. It’s blokes just talking honestly and committing to leave the old bloke behind and put on the new bloke.
So crack out the old tent, dust off your billy and give some thought to where you really want to grow as a fair dinkum Christian bloke.
Caption competition: ever wanted to put words in Simon Allery’s mouth? Here’s your chance! free rego to the best response.
More BGB’08 details to follow.
BGB’08 sounds great, and with all the chatter still around from the Brisbane trip, I’m sure there will be plenty for you guys to talk about, and encourage each other about too.
But before all that, it’d be great to get the blokes to encourage the women in their lives – wives, daughters, sisters, mothers – to head to the Women’s Retreat (see the blog).
Have fun guys.
I’ve been talking to some blokes about bringing our mountain bikes to the weekend. I’m not sure if there are any suitable trails. If not we will just have to meld the concept of mountain biking and water sliding. Bring along your bike if you have one (hope this is okay Kelvin).
we could have a race: mountain bikes vs 4WDs vs blokes on horses! waddayareckon?!
Well I am not going to make it to BGB thats going to be 3 years in a row. Whats the world coming to when you can’t get to BGB ?
Well I reckon Pete thats a really ye ha idea but why not throw in a three legged race at the same time for those who can’t ride a bike ,drive or who don’t own a horse.
Ah Trev! What a bummer! Maybe your group can organise a mini-version at a time when you’re not working – if that’s ever the case these days!
