Wednesday Already

Postby gstark on Wed Aug 02, 2006 11:18 am

Just days before the AW.

If you've not heard from anyone about your selected activities, please PM myself, or one of the other admins or mods about this, and we'll see what's up.

All bookings have now closed, however, and we're set to have a great time, with a vast range of activities underway.

And the bargains section is now back. Please use it for the purpose for which it's intended - read the section description.

Looking forward to it Gary.
I hope the weather holds out for the ferry hop, and I better start finding out where Haberfield is, and more importantly how to get there/ :)

Hi,

Where is exact place for a Little Manly meeting? I might be able to come along for an hour or so. It is from 10 am, isn't it?

Wendell, taxi or bus. I think I'm in the SLK too; I've not yet entriely clarified how Leigh's getting there.

Or home.

I think I know, but it would be inappropriate for me to comment further or make suggestions.

Perhaps he's hoping to 'get lucky' and find himself someone to take him home ;)

We'll be driving, but have three of us going and I'm also pretty sure we won't be out late.

I'm probably going to get a bus or something there and back.
If the dinner gets a bit late I probably get a taxi back to Le city, but I'm sure it will all come together.

Anyone know which buses go to Haberfield?

Actyually, thinking about it, I might be three sheets to the wind and would rather not negotiate a bus, so taxi it will be :lol:

I had a dog like that. He'd sit by your side at the dinner table, drool hanging from both sides of his mouth.

John,

Many thanx.

From what I seen, been to, and from talking with the people who have been at the various events, everyone seems to be having a great time.

I'm chilling today, rather than attending the brunch. Although I wanted to, by the end of last night I was totally buggerred, and I still have my radio show to start preparing.

But last night was awsesome: great food, great venue, great company ... does it get any better than that?
