The Ninth! is to be held at Bundanoon in the Southern Highlands of NSW on the Long Weekend in June 2017. That's June 9th - 11th. Be prepared for chill in the evenings and cross your fingers for fine days.

Norm Ellis, Arthur Kingsland, Jeanette Mill, Don Richmond, Simon Wall, Tony Northey, Heather Clarke, Roger Gifford & Christine Ridgway, Bruce Hamilton, Nesa Simon David, June Staunton, Ian Bull, Paul & Leslie Carr, Mark Simmons, Madis & Tiina Alvre, Bruce Lemin, Colin Towns, Cathy Richmond, Chris Taylor, and Keith Wood.
