    Wow! This brings back very fond memories. In the mid 80’s I was living on Coolabine rd. off of Obi Obi rd. and was playing a regular acoustic guitar gig at Mapleton Pub on sundays. I used to drive by the old hall all the time and think what a great place that would be to hold a party. Back then there were a couple of old outhouses as toilets, one of which was almost falling over. The interior of the hall was over run with pigeons and cow paddy’s. Yes the cows used to walk up the front stairs and through the broken front door.
    I approached the farmer up behind the hall and asked if I could rent it for a weekend. He explained that it hadn’t been used in about 20 years and that I would have to talk to another farmer who lived across the the other side of Obi Obi creek. After speaking with that farmer, I secured a date to rent the hall, paid a $6 rental fee and and gathered a group of friends from the area and proceeded to clean up the hall and get it ready for our event. We rented a couple of portable out houses to supplement the existing one and thus began “The Obi-Doo”. My acoustic duo partner, Jamie, and I played that saturday night along with a 3 piece classic rock band from Brisbane, “Deep Puddle”. We had a pig on a spit, a stew that didn’t turn out so well, but lots of Jack Daniels, beer and a great time. We did it again for the next couple of years and then I moved away from the area, however Jamie continued with the Obi-Doo for a few more years from what I understand.
    It is so good to see the hall in it’s present condition and to know it is still benefitting the local community to this day. It would have been a shame to leave it to the cows.
