QLD RPG Meetings
The QLD RPG Meetings are held regularly throughout the year, usually held at the Marburg Community Hall, Cnr Edmond and Main Street, Marburg, just off the Warrego Hwy. Occasional meetings may be held at other locations as noted below. Start time varies but is usually 9.30 to 10am. All interested members are welcome.
PLEASE NOTE: RPG meeting scheduled for 2 May has been postponed due to the heavy rainfall in South East Queensland. As many members travel some distance to attend these meetings, for safety, the Committee decided to postpone. Everyone stay safe.
NEXT QLD RPG Meeting - 23 May 2015, Marburg Community Hall 10am. All members welcome. The Marburg Hotel has wonderful meals at reasonable prices, so come along and have lunch with us and a bit of a chat with other members, after the meeting. Or come along a bit earlier and have a cuppa!
