UPDATE: Can everyone attending please PM me your numbers (mobile preferably)?

Date:
Saturday 20th January and Sunday 21st January

Planned activities:
20th:
  • Picnic + cricket at the Botanical Gardens (Suggested time: 11am - 7pm).
    We can get there by tram according to this little map on their site:

    The Saturday meeting point should be at Flinders St Station. From there we'll all catch a tram together. This is from their site:
    QUOTE
    From Flinders Street, you can get on the following trams: 3, 5, 8, 16, 64, 67. Get off the tram at the Domain Road Interchange. Walk towards the Shrine of Remembrance and you will see the Observatory Buildings. The Observatory buildings are part of the Gardens. The Visitor Centre is located here and can be a good starting point. The Number 8 Tram can drop you close to Gate D.

    The Botanical Gardens website says no BBQs are allowed so it looks like it will be a good old-fashioned picnic. What say everyone pitch in around $10? Drinks, bread, salami, ready made roast chicken, lebanese bread, hommous, salads... those are just a few of my suggestions but we'll see what else we can get.
21st:
  • ???
Confirmed attendees:
ch1x0r (moi)
Melonqueen
Tubby
Lord Panzerfaust
Senor_Hat
D-Shock
Firefly
grimm

If your name isn't on the attendee list and you would like to go, please PM me with your contact number and I'll put your name on the list.

Also, if you have a suggestion for activities or something better to do please post them here so everyone can discuss them.

Accomodation:
UPDATE:
I might possibly be staying with Tubby's mate so the hostel idea might be going out the window. Just gotta show us how to get there by tram. @_@

Why don't you guys just move in wit eachother? seriously.. icon_wink.gif


QUOTE (Weiman @ Apr 5 2009, 01:09 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

More meets? Thats it, i am going to go PM everyone who lives near New Jersey and we're going to have our own meet here. And we'll take our pictures in front of our lovely factories, pretty waste dumps, and numerous + comforting jailhouses.

And on a random note:
I hate the fact you have to be 18 in Western countries and 21 in America to intake alcohol. Ukraine has that law, but no one follows it.

"You are 8 years son?"

"Yes sir.."

"Alrighty how many bottles of vodka would you like?"

Just a note on where we should go for the pub crawl thing, I say we start at the Crown. It's easiest for everyone to find, especially for the out of towners. Theres a number of bars and nightclubs in there, and if we get bored, we can always just grab a taxi to the city centre and check out pubs eg. Young and Jackson

I'd go for that, but why not spend the day in New york City, with it's arcades, and large malls to get lost in, and subways to gawk at the homeless in? It'll be AWESOME.
