I think it's time for another social meet. Hopefully a good turn around like last December. Around seven turned up last time and 4 stayed all the way till 11pm.

Schedule:

15:00 Customs House model. Go inside the sandstone building, turn right pass the entrance. You will see sofas, seats, stools and creature comforters. You will see me with a small white backpack. (Location 1)
16:30 Walk to The Rocks. Grab some drinks. (Location 2)
18:30 Get something to eat.
19:30 To the bar/pub

Here's your chance to meet the rest of the gang in one big pile of group. Some i had met in smaller numbers, so there shouldn't be any anxiety in meeting the rest.

For those people who cannot make it to Location 1, then come to the next session at the Rocks. Private messege me asap or by e-mail containg your name and mobile number so i can call you where we are.

Roll Call:

Miliux
Anton
Zach24
TonyP
Leenyr
jeepstar
urban fox

Maybe peple are still thinking about it or planning.

I should be able to make it and I didn't go to the Xmas meet. Don't know about being part of a continuing drink-fest but a few never hurt.

*thinks for a second* Yeah, I'll do it!

Change of plan, Customs House model room. Pretty close to The Rocks.

Cul, can you make this a sticky? And remove the old December Meet.

thanks for the info culwulla. now get to work on something in the 300 m range :)
Fat chance. Our last hope was dashed with the East Darling Harbour competition outcome. Melbourne & The Gold Coast are the places to look for 300m towers.

We look forward to your arrival BTW.

LOL Speak for yourself. Anyway, as some of you may know (hey there Tony P
), I can't hold my liquor well, *SO* I won't be boozing it up. I'll let others decide.

Where to go??

I always liked the Lord Nelson. Haven't been there for years - but it is a 5 or 10mins walk up thru Argyle Cut. Worth it though.

There are heaps of others though. And I'm sure they'd be happy to make Muse a pot of tea. Or at least give him some boiling water and a tea bag. :D

The Lord Brewery Nelson Hotel has it's own little brewery. There's half a dozen of their own distinctive home brews that are all quite different.


The Russell Hotel...



The Mercantile...


Fortune of War...




The Hero Of Waterloo




The Palisade...


Is this one in The Rocks?? I don't recognise it...


The Australian Hotel
