First of all, i'm not about to really consider start planning a get together, however if all of us Oz (or more specifically MEL) crew put ideas together, i'm sure we could orginise something.

Hell, they're doing over Zurich and other euro places, why not use down here?!

Anyone with ideas, or the able to facilitate such an idea PLEASE POST

Stop Gloating Kaz...haha

I'm sure a day out at SYD OR MEL would be good. I'll consider myself there when things get going.

It's a thought, Bakestar.  Smile Whereabouts are you? I'm in Mentone, I think Monteycarlos is in Sandringham.

If you don't mind, it's gonna be 31 tomorrow and Wednesday. Beautiful weather to enjoy without worrying about cane-toads!

Sounds like the Tudor Inn at Cheltenham for a start, then, Bakestar. Though the Mentone Hotel or the Beauey are the better pubs. I'll PM you.

Once we've got the Victorian branch up and running we might invite the other States to join!

One question, all you guys - what are we all doing awake at THIS hour? My excuse is that I'm semi-retired.  Smile

Work night fill at safeway, so my working hours are usually right now, but got the night off. It's my last week in fact before I start my new job at Customs.

Bit far away from my location at 265 Exhibition Street. Of course I'm not in MEL all of the time, but if you're planning something in the future, I'm keen.

Cheers

I dare say that there will be one or two of us out at SYD on the 14th when the A380 comes in from KUL. I haven't seen any timings yet, but I will be there. So why not have a mini-meet then.

Then once we can that one under the belt we can go and visit the regional airports. (only joking MEL).  stirthepot

Now can anyone tell me why I'm lending my digital camera to my parents that weekend?!  Sad

Because you want to go and buy yourself a new one, and then make your parents pay for it out of guilt?

AAAAAAAAAAAAA I have just realised that I am away the Blue Mountains on the Sat and Sun. Thankgod for day light saving. I should be home in time to see her. Hopefully will see her take off on Monday though.

This may seem like a pretty stupid question, but what are we supposed to do at the meetings. Please make sure the meeting isn't in a pub (i'm under 18). Can you guys (and girls) decide soon if this will happen or not. I need to book flights before Monday.

Watch the A380 arrive at least? And those of you not needing to go to work can watch it leave as well?

Well I always would have suggested to retire to the pub for further discussions but evidently there are those who aren't quite legal yet.

But ... do you look "of age"?

Disclaimer: I'm of course not advocating anyone break the law here ... do so at your own risk ...  thumbsup 

I guess we'll need to know the plane's schedule before we make a time? & location?

I'm a little 13 year old kid who gets paid out about loving planes and unfortunately doesn't look older than 18.
