Is that the time?

Postby gstark on Tue Nov 14, 2006 5:18 pm

My, how time flies when you're having fun.

Can you believe this: it's just ten days until our Sydney Christmas Dinner?

November 25, In Restaurant, Neutral Bay.

I still have room for one or two more, so if you're thinking of coming, this is your last chance.

We're going to have prize-givings for such things as ...

The challenge just ended.

PotY

Plus a few other surprises: I was chatting with Poon yesterday, and it seems that Santa Poon is sending a gift bag of goodies to Sydney.

Please remember that bookings are limited. This is probably your last chance to get in for this event, so hurry up, or miss out.

Booking form is here.

And as I write this, it's just a few hours until Sycamore #1's birthday, so please join with me in wishing him a happy and sober <strike>24th</strike>23rd.

Well, one of those will probably happen. :)

Voting for PotY

On the subject of PotY, please cast your votes now. Voting will close early on Friday morning, to allow Scott some time to recover from The Fred Hollows Exhibition Opening on Thursday night. If you're in Melbourne, please make a point of either trying to attend the opening, or else visiting our photos in the exhibion over the next few days. This is a most worthwhile cause, and your efforts in supporting this cannot be ignored.

Congratulations Leigh on your 24th, I am sure the words sobriety and birthday don't go together at 24 :lol:

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the Christmas party :D

Can't make the Sydney Christmas do but I can wish Leigh a happy birthday. Have a great day, a top night and disgusting hangover!

Speaking of birthdays, Pat and I have one to go to on the 25th - so I hope everyone has a great time at the dinner and posts all about it afterwards. :D

Be sure to take some photos!

I will ask a stupid question - how do we check to see if we have booked or not and are included?

Happy Birthday Leigh !!! :)

And to all of you going to the dinner - have a fantastic night ! Maybe one year, we can organise a "northern contingent" to attend ;) Or better still, we have the Sydney Dinner in Brisbane ????? :) ;)

Thanks Glen - I am not sure if I have paid up yet or not - can I do so on the night or should I do so asap?

Cheers

And you left the "l" out of "believe", and it's one of my favourite letters.
Without it, I'd be Eigh, and that sounds more like a sound you make when you cough.

heheh - he was getting older! 23 sounds much better - was trying to work out how I remembered him turning 21 when the forum is only 2 years old!

Hope you have a good one eigh ;)

Great. A new nick name every year.

Last year it was "Let's do this thing!"

This year it's eigh.

It'll probably be "Let's do this thing, eigh!" in a few minutes.

Cheers for the birthday greetings all! :)
