    Ballarat Heritage Weekend - 7-8th May

    I just discovered this is on this weekend! For more info visit

    We have an AP meet planned for Saturday afternoon, we might change the plans a little now!

    There is also a historic military battle re-enactment that is written about here. I'm still trying to find out where it is!

    Any info anyone has, please post it hear, there might be members that want to get out over the weekend for a look.

    Photography is the art of telling stories with light.

    Ups... I was not aware of the AP meet this Saturday.

    Thanks for the link to Ballarat!
    This week-end is also the Mother's Day. It looks to be a very good alternative to go out with the family. It is most likely that we will go on Sunday.
