View Full Version : Seafood to Brisbane

Gday All,

At the request if Isuzurover I have started a brisbane Order thread,

Same rules and prices as I posted in the Thread "Seafood this Christmas Pt 2.

Post your interest here and will see how the numbers stack up closer to the ned of the month.

Cheers Ean


Gday All,

OK after a lot of thinking and trying to work out how I can do this I think I will go this way.

I will leave it up to the people in each state to work out amoungst themselves if they can get an order together, as I dont like asking 1 person to put their hand up without realising if it will get support.

So I need a minimum of 70kgs and sent as 1 invoice and 1 consignment ( same as previous years )

Will offer the following.

Endeavour Prawns U/15 (large ) 3kg box = $53

Endeavour Prawns 10/20 (medium) 3kg box $43

Bugs Whole 1kg bag $21
Will do 5kg boxes of smaller size bugs for $85

I haven't offered tigers this year as the catches were low and the export price is up. I can quote on them if you send me a PM.

So its now upto you guys to decide if you can get together in each state and put in an order.

Sorry, but this is the only fair way I can see this can be done.

As always, check local prices as I have to build freight charges into the price.

Cheers Ean.

PS I dont make any $$$ out of this, I am doing it as I want to see Australian seafood offered within Australia.

Options are:

...
... need a minimum of 70kgs and sent as 1 invoice and 1 consignment ( same as previous years )

Gday All,

I think Kev the fridgy order is
5 x 1kg bugs @ $21 = $105
1 x 3kg u/15 =53

All else is good. This order will leave darwin either tuesday or Wednesday.

I will confirm the departure/Arrival date on Monday.

The product will be going to our company coldstore in Brisbane
A Raptis & Sons
90 Colmslie Rd
Colmslie.

All I know is its near the gateway bridge, across the river from the brisbane golf course.

I don't want to put the mocha on us:p, but I wanted to be first to thank Ean and Izuzurover for their efforts and time.

I was discussing the whole prawn thing with colleagues at work who were amazed that a mere LR club could pull off something like this.
Of course, they are Toyo clubbers who didn't even have a Christmas party, let alone someone in the club willing to do the rest a good turn.
Prawns and bugs, yummy prawns and bugs.

I said I'd take a few into work to gloat....and I will.

Again thanks

I am travelling and won't get to Brisbane until 16 Dec. Therefore my father (Dan) will be picking up my order. He doesn't do internet, that is why I NEED everyone's phone number.

Ben is in NZ and has no internet so has sent me a text asking that I post the following..

Pick up will have to 0800 on the 17th not 4pm. The Raptis coldstore closes at 14.30, so no use arriving at 4pm as no one will be there.

much easier to arrange an early knock off rather than a very late start

I can't think of a more inconvenient time for me to attempt to drive 250 km south to Brisbane, through the morning traffic build up on a Monday morning.
And I can't think of a more inconvenient time for me to have animals fed to allow me to come down to Brisbane the previous evening. And then stay overnight with the hastles of that.
After what I thought was a concrete and sensible arrangement, I'll now have to think about whether or not the whole exercise is worth it.

i have a large freezer and would be happy to store them for you.....

i'm on the northern outskirts of brisbane 'bracken ridge' which would suit as well

unfortunately pick up times can be tricky and hard to suit everybody.....and its good that we all post weather it suits or not so that we can work something out

the prawns are worth it, let us know if i can assist

at this stage i am taking the day off, picking up prawns and than shooting out to boonah to sort some paper work out from the weekend that ahas just pasted

So, just when we thought all was going to plan, the typical Christmas silly season idiots come up with a demand for Practical Completion before the break.... no worries guys we will all just flog ourselves for 14 hours a day to meet the target.............. what this means is I am now unable to make it to Raptis for the agreed 8AM pick up. If anyone can help it will be well appreaciated, I live down at Rdland Bay and am working at Enoggera so any suggestions would be awsome, travelling around is not really an issue to me either.

Kev, I can collect for you if needed.

Disco44, I can grab yours aswell if that'll help.

I've got a recently retired 210L chestfreezer I'll throw on the back and ice down. Then transfer to my new chesty when I get home.

Cheers,
Tony

Sorry for the hassle guys. Given past experience with WA shipments, it is never possible to pick a time that suits everyone.

When I got Ean's text about the early closing I had to make an executive decision.

See all/most of you at 8am tomorrow.
If anyone can't make it and hasn't made arrangements for someone to collect, I will grab the prawns and you can collect them later from Tingalpa (phone 0419 047 426 on monday for address).

I don't know how much spare freezer space we will have after my order is in there though, so no guarantees on all day storage.

Cheers,

Ben.

I'll leave my place in plenty of time so if there is a hold up ( it is the gateway with plenty of idiots on it) I'll get there on time.If I cannot make it on time PM me a phone number so that I can pick it up at your place.

Guy G; G'day mate. Which part of town are you in?
Some local knowledge of trouble spots might help.
Failing that: radio road reports, UHF 40 and leave home 2 hours before you need to be there, then read a good book : )
Cheers, Dave.

Kev - Ean has said before it is best not to ice them (unless dry). The prawns are at -30 or lower, so will keep frozen for a while, if insulated.

Thanks to Ben and Ean for organising, the seafood made it to my sisters freezer awaiting Xmas day with the family, assuming they don't eat it first. Was great to catch up with a bunch of people off the forum.

Thanks Ean, Ben and his dad for keeping my seafood in his freezer.

Now I'm not sure if im going to share it with the family as they found it quite funny that I was getting seafood from a bloke on the internet with a land rover :angel:

Thanks again and hope you all have a great christmas
