Kingdom Melodies Annual Picnic in the Paddock

Scenes from last years "Picnic in the Paddock"

video
Well - it sure wasn't in the paddock this year. Another cyclone blew through on Saturday and so things didn't work out as intended but it was still a good time. For those not in the know - every year Mark organizes a picnic on his folks farm (as the photos show). He gives a call out to all the musicians across the Bay and beyond and they come and play only Kingdom Melodies. Then an audience arrives to listen and to sing along if they so desire.It is an awesome night and you can't help but feel good afterwards.

The weather has always been good to us but this year it was not to be. Unfortunately too, lots of people travelling had to turn back home cause the roads were flooded and closed, so we were down in numbers but there was still around 150 there to enjoy the fellowship. Sadly some of the musicians couldn't get through either. Oh well - hopefully next year will be better! (Providing of course that we are home again to attend ourselves - Aaron no doubt will have to take charge again).

Very good! Shame you couldn't have it outside, though.

Oh, and instead of reposting it at Dooners, maybe just put a link so people know to come and look here. :)
