    How about .. Vic meetup for June 27th(Sat) @ 7AM start

    It's been a while between meets.

    I'm thinking sometime in June.

    Easiest dates for me(in terms of freedom) in June will be

    13-14th
    27-28th

    Also Monday 8th Jun(being Queen's Birthday is coming up quickly) .. a lot of folks seem to have this day off too.

    Something to note too, is that the Winter Solstice is due on or about the 20th( I think, but can't confirm, 22nd this year).
    Anyhow .. there is a Winter Solstice doo at Fed Sq on the Sat 20th.
    While I have my kids on that day, and they have their normal activities they attend during the day .. maybe a slightly later evening meetup to coincide with the Fed Sq doodad could provide alternate interests for some folks.

    Just putting some ideas out there if anyone is interested.

    As usual, all other suggestions are welcome

    Hi Arthur,

    Sounds like a great idea! I can do the 13th/14th, 20th, or 27th/28th at this stage! Didn't know about the solstice doothingy, so that could be interesting as well.

    Cheers!

    Good start;

    We currently have members interested for a 21st(Sunday) catch up. The 21st is hard for me, in that I have to be mindful of the kids needs .. get them home, fed, and bed early, as Monday is a school day.

    But for that weekend there is a broader spectrum of photo opportunities available on the 20th(Sat) because of the solstice event at Fed Sq.

    A word of note too: Sat/Sun 27/28 June is the first week of the school hols(here in Vic). Traditionally, this means that the city is a lot less populated, as many families head out for a break of some sort.
    So there is a chance that there will be less traffic(vehicular and pedestrian) on this first weekend of the school holidays.

    Because I almost totally forgot about this thread .. and only just got reminded .. 13-14 is only a few days away and probably short notice for some members(ie. who have yet to notice this thread)

    So how's about the 27-28 weekend as a confirmed date

    I'm putting my hand up for the 27th, being a Saturday but would also be happy for Sunday 28th too.
    I'm thinking Saturday would also be easier on Geoff too, as he has to drive about 4 hrs each way.


    this also gives me time to try to figure out a way to alert any other potentially interested Vic members in the list
    (yeah, I must be the worst moderator in the worst house .. in the best street! )

    If it's Saturday I can only hope the meet up goes into the evening as I have a sports club commitments, any time Sunday is ok. Please don't arrange a night session just to fit in with me, it will be a tad cold eh...

    I'll be there for part of the night as well, so all won't be lost.

    Yeah, I'm in for a bit of later evening hanging about too.

    Later evening city wandering is worth doing.

    Might be worth doing a touristy thing like the Zoo at some point. I normally only do it with the kids which kind of confines your ability to relax and take photos. Not saying that for this trip, but it may be worth it for a trip in future.

    Sounds like a plan.

    I personally haven't been to the zoo for about 25 - 35 years(or so) .. can't remember actually.
    My ex used to take the kids when they used to go(during down time).

    I guess my kids may be interested in something like that too ... actually probably not my son .. unless there is some way to participate via an online stylised massacre of creatures exhibition going!
    My precious little animal hugging princess would jump at the opportunity for a trip to photograph her favourite cuddly animals tho.

    ps. are you coming in on this one?

    I'm in Sydney that weekend for a vacation with the family. It will be the first time my 2 yr old has been on a flight so I'll be doing a video of her reaction.
