Bump.

Did we get any closer to organising a date and location?

Perhaps at the BBQs along the Yarra on Alexandria Avenue?
(yes it is only 30 seconds from my house.... just a suggestion!)

Good thinking,,,

Think by limited public opinion, we arrived at Sat Dec 6th.

Location to be confrimed, I need to confirm from a member who volunteered to host.

Paul, can those BBQs be "reserved"?

Abbotsford convent is good for a meet if you are happy buying their food and drink (which I am) and very photogenic!

There is also the quarries picnic ground (+BBQs) near the yarra at Clifton Hill

If you're willing to travel out a bit, i know Hawkestowe park is beautifull, tucked away in a nice small valley and it has a couple of bbqs there. Not very well known so not many people go there.

Thats where its located.

I have something which has come up - trying to get out of it now
(or at least defer it) but could be tricky.

Still hoping to make it at some stage, but apologies if I don't show.
