It's that time of the year

Postby gstark on Wed Nov 16, 2011 7:39 am

And so I'm thinking of perhaps a Christmas get together down at Doll's Point, just north of the southern end of the Grand Parade.

There's a nicely wooded area there, with handy parking (provided it's not too crowded).

My thoughts are Saturday Dec 3, from around 11am.

Who's in?

Given tetra-deca-annual celebrations for Mrs Reschsmooth that day, we/I won't be able to make it, unfortunately.

Katie and I are already booked so we'll submit our apologies. We have an family oct-tarian celebration taking place.

0530 rise...so have to be there at 0445.... Your vernacular carcass will need two granny naps and you will probably talk like a granny all day. :wink:

The weekend of 3/12 suits me - I'm down that Thursday (1/12) for work and could probably take the Firday off and make a long weekend of it

Matt (and everyone else)

I'm not welded onto the third, so yes maybe the 10th as an option? Will that work better for most? Peter?

As it happens, I was in a cab yesterday morning, heading around Henley Marine Drive towards Drummoyne, and it's been so long since I've been down that part of town, I'd forgotten what it was like, and of course these days, it's been cleaned up quite a bit. If y'all want to go down there instead of my Ramsgate suggestion, that's on the table too.

Please, let's discuss this so that we can get the best outcome.

The 10th may suit us better although the evening for us will entail the celebration of my mother becoming a septuagenarian. Therefore, if you are planning late afternoon to evening, we will be unable to make it.

Unsure of either date, but I have to say that Drummoyne would suit me much better than the AEotU originally suggested.

Neither the 3rd nor the 10th are ideal for me as I have functions to attend in the evening. However, I may still be able to join for a couple of hours on either day - especially if it is at Drummoyne.

I can probably do the 10th - Drummoyne sounds good :up:

Drummoyne's not too far from me... so I might even be able to get off my arse and pop along... depending on the date.

Well, from the discussion thus far, two things seem to be evident:

1: we'll do Henley Marine Drive, near Drummoyne

2: the 10th of December seems to be a better date for most of you ...

The 10th is now better for me too. My Sydney visit for work has slipped to 8/12

The 10th could be a option for me...probably the only option, not particularly fussed on the location, as long as you can take photos ;)
