Nathan,

The schedule is going to be a bit tight to get you back to Melbourne by 6pm from Roberts.  If we had lunch in Melbourne (For those that couldn't come to Roberts for example) it would only give us two hours or so at Roberts as he's about 90 minutes each way from the city and doesn't finish work till about 4pm on the Saturday.

Update!

As mentioned we are on somewhat tight schedule.  Nathan thinks he can get away around mid day from Tullamarine Airport so....

22/2/2014
12:15pm. 
Meeting for the Melbourne crew
Cafe 8th. Nerve
103 Gaffney Street
Coburg North 3058
(12 mins from Airport)

1:00pm
Walk from the cafe to the factory (5 mins)
Jump in the car and head straight to Robertd's estate, eta, circa 2:15pm.
Rob will prepare the BBQ for us, thanks Rob!!

The purpose of the initial gathering at the Coburg cafe is to meet with those that cannot make the afternoon soiree at Roberts.  On the off chance that everyone who wishes to meet at the cafe is in fact coming to Roberts in the afternoon , we could skip the cafe meeting and just meet at Robert's directly on the Ballarine Peninsula saving a good 45 minutes, and a trip to Coburg for some of you.  I'll need your input on this so perhaps we could have a show of hands to see who can make the Coburg stop but not the visit to Robert's?  It's no problem either way.  Nathan needs to be back in Melbourne around dinner time which would mean heading off from Robert's about 6pm.  Well, for me at least, I'm the chauffeur! 

Although it would be preferable to meet in the city for those in the Eastern suburbs, we don't have the luxury of heading into town, then out again after the Melbourne meeting because of the schedule.  Just blame Nathan!

Over to you.

I'm happy to go straight to Roberts...  But if I'll miss some of you and the chance to travel in a W116 convoy (or ride) I'll head to Coburg!

PS I'll be W116-less unfortunately!   :(

Carl & Co, see you at Cafe 8th Nerve at 12:15 - how is parking around there at that time? - I haven't been to the factory, so I will need to leave the 'Taxi' in the street.  Sorry, can't do the Bellarine run on Sat coz we are hosting a family event same day.

PG.

No problem.  For the Melbournians not coming to Robertd's, would could meet at the cafe earlier?  I could be there from about 11:30am.  Nathan might have to get himself to the cafe then :)   Perhaps it might be best for Nathan to call us when he's done at the airport, as his meeting conclusion time is not fixed and we can take it from there.

There is no problem with parking at the cafe, either out the front or in the side street.
