Brisbane Branch meets on the first Saturday of each month at
Norths Leagues Club, Kallangur.
Our group generally meets in the coffee shop at about 9.30am for
a “caffeine hit” and a chat. We then converge to the rear of the
Bistro area at 10.30am for our general Branch meeting. At the
conclusion, some of our members remain to have a meal together
before heading off to do other things!
