Mannum Retreats May 2011

The Mannum retreats are now over for another year and a great time was had by all that attended.  We’re so lucky to have such a fantastic group that continue to come back time and time again.   We also had a few “newbies” and it’s always great to meet new people.  The weekend was focussed on UFO’s and there are lots of photos – so sit back and enjoy.
