    How about 5.30? Still gives us plenty of time before sunset, or I can do 5 if you want to meet earlier.
    Peter - can I get one of those torches off you? Remind me how much mates rates was!!??

    I have just spoken to the person responsible for the tunnel tours and explained what we hoped to do and he is all for it. Can only be done on a Sat as Sunday is an Open Day.
    I'm going down on Sunday to introduce myself and take the tour to see what ideas I can get. Thinking of this for a future meet.
    Have a look at this virtual tour they have of the tunnels.

    5:30 for this Sat works really great for me. Less of a rush to get there.

    Today I went back to Buckland Hill and met with the people who do the tours and did the tour myself. We had a discussion and I was able to show them some of what we would like to do using images I had got off the web and they are all fine with it. Cost would be $50.00 for the group with no time limit although I think we should impose our own limit of two hours in fairness to those involved being volunteers.

    The tunnels are very narrow with most not being able to cope with two people abreast.

    Some bad images are attached (or not cause I can't get it to work) to give some ideas of the environment.

    I'm thinking and have proposed to the tour folks for early next year.

    Hi Pete,

    Did you try using a super wide lens for some pics? Would make for an interesting effect.

    Cheers
    Steve

    I recall seeing the pics about a year ago, just after the day out.

    Shane,

    A bunch of us went, but Peter King (look up the members) and search his pictures of last summer, there is also some of Peter's pictures above the tunnels, around the grounds. They have a military library there, and folk dress in period clothing and the like.

    Mate, fell free to suggest a meet on the WA Forum, I tried to start one, but it's stalled some what, you might just be the spark we need.
