    Sydney Vivid AP Meet - Saturday 26 May 2012

    Greetings all

    Sydney Vivid comes around again, starting on Friday 25 May and going through to Monday 11 June.

    I thought it may be opportune to start a thread and organise a meet for the first Saturday, 26 May. The idea behind the first Saturday is that it tends to be less crowed than later ones and if the weather is crap, you have a few more you can go to.

    Still a few weeks away, post here is interested and you want to do a quick meal before-hand or just start with a meet up.

    Details here... Sydney Vivid 2012
    Cheers

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    I was just about to put up a thread as well Peter but you beat me to it. I'm certainly coming.

    I was also wondering if anyone was interested in a Mt Tomah/Mt Wilson meet in the next couple of weeks as the autumn colours have arrived I believe.

    Hi Sydney AP'rs
    I would love to go to Mt wilson/tomah soon, before those leaves are on the ground.
    Vivid sounds good too, but is a weekday evening less crowded? Just a thought, I am happy to attend on the agreed night.
    Cheers

    Hi all. Whilst Sydney is over 6 hours away we wouldn't mind attending. I will see if I can get a day or two off work and try and get there this year. We missed last years event by a day as we had just flown out of Australia. Put us as a tentative.

    Maybe a meet for Saturday 28 April. We have done Mt Tomah for the last couple of years. Maybe Mt Wilson - hopefully it isn't too late. There were some open gardens there a couple of weeks back and it was mentioned (on the radio), that there are no local cafes at the moment so you will need to pack a picnic. Remember last year, food was impossible at Mt Tomah anyway.

    Wings Over Illawarra is the following weekend.

    I will post more details nearer the date but I would expect possibly meet up for an optional sunset (4:55 pm) with light show starting at 6pm. For those not doing sunset, we could meet up/re-group around 5:45pm. The light show gets turned off about midnight but generally, people start going their own way (if the group has not split into smaller mini-groups) around 9:30pm.

    If you want to do a sunset, Observatory Hill Park is good and you could bring dinner in a bag and picnic there (just a thought) before going on to the light show.

    Anyway, still 5-weeks off.

    Oooh! I missed this last year!! Count me in (I'm on holidays at that time too! Hurray!! Nice timing!!). There may be a few people wanting to come with me, but I'm not sure yet. Definitely count me in though! I missed it last year with you guys and ended up going the week after with a very bored friend. Can't wait!

    I hope you have a great night with us binnie - just be prepared for the crowds. Hopefully they won't be too bad seeing that we are going on the second day of the event.
