Hi Everyone

 

I finally decided to join the ISG forums after many years of lurking purely because you are such a knowledgable and seemingly lovely bunch of people.

 

A lot of you will know who I am simply by my forum name :-) of course you will also know that I do not play golf, yet, possibly never, we shall see.  In any case for those of you who do not know me I am the other half of Live4Golf / PJ / ICantPutt / Chook Norris. 

 

Before I pick your brains could I just say a HUGE thank you for the support you have given over the last 18 months xxxx.  I have read your posts, received private messages, emails etc and I am thankful and appreciative for all of them and also for the fund raising you do not just in Pauls name but for all of those who have left us too soon and for those of you who still battle.  The support you give to each other, whether in person or via this forum is amazing - you are good eggs as Paul would have said.  In reality, ISGer's have been the ones keeping me going and somewhat sane, so again, thank you from the bottom of my heart xxxxxx

 

Now as for the brain picking....I am off to Noumea in July with my sister and am wondering if anyone here has been there recently at all please?  I thought July may have been ok weather wise, warm enough to swim / snorkel but apparently that will not be the case (last time I trust a friend and not research first!)  A few questions please: What 'touristy' activities are worthwhile doing?  Is there anything worth doing or should we just kick back and relax?  Also, do we use the euro or the CFP / XFP?  I have no idea so any info at all will be appreciated.

 

Thanks

Ah, who said it wouldn't be warm enough to swim n snorkel etc. ??? Noumea is on the same Lattitude as Central Qld and that's where all the grey nomads head in Winter!

Water temp and weather in July will be plenty warm enough for snorkeling, swimming, etc. And, by then the threat of cyclones will have decreased too.

Edit: here ya go:

https://www.seatempe...noumea-july.htm

Yep, a lovely 23 deg C in July. Perfect!

Thanks for the link. OK so I spent a fair bit of time up in the NT (where I met Paul) and even all these years later anything under 25 and Im cold.  Will see how brave I am :-)

Welcome aboard Mrs Chook, nice to have a bit of sanity in the place. Unfortunately it won’t last long. Don’t hold back on giving some of these boneheads a good lashing every now and then, some really enjoy it, especially Ink.

As for Noumea, haven’t been there for about 30 years but if it is anything like Fiji nothing will have changed. Very friendly people and the local cuisine is very . Plenty of old sites to see if you are into that stuff and boat trips. More of a kick back and chill place from my memory.

For up to date stuff just Google TripAdvisor Noumea. You will get a heap of info on what to do, costs, etc on there.

Stay tuned... I can feel some shenanigans coming on.

Hi there Mrs Chook Norris, never had the honour of meeting Paul, we did correspond on a few occasions and he had a terrific sense of humour.

Temperature is all important, like yourself if it drops below 25 it is time for the heater, perhaps you can look for some central heated bathers if you insist in going during the cold weather. I know nothing about Noumea apart from the fact it is not in Australia but think carefully about the timing of the holiday. We went to Hamilton Island during the winter, thinking it would be better but it was a mistake, our next venture up north was in the summer, even though it was extremely hot and humid the water temperature on the beaches was just right.

Enjoy your holiday and know we are all thinking of you.
Intended to break 90 this year, not going well.

Concentrating just getting round the course
