You may enjoy a family affair - a picnic on the beach! You may be a group of supporters of the appeal to the Federal Court. You might be business owners expressing your appreciation for the Bay and your dismay at the dredging which shall benefit a few at the expense of many.

You may be  a group of swimmers, divers, boaters, yachtees or fisherfolk who acknowledge your interaction with this Bay as an integral part of your lives.

We invite and call everyone who is willing and able, to join us in forming a chain of lights around the Bay. By early January, we plan to post here a network of sites and people who know they shall be there surrounding the Bay on the night of January 8th.
