Any suggestions re dates?  Anyone with unsuitable dates?  I figure if we set a date early, more people can plan to attend....

I haven't seen the Fox collection so that's possible.  I'm also thinking of a nice tour somewhere, but maybe I'm getting too adventurous?

Looks like the fox collection is closed Sunday's. Do you work Saturdays Robert? A drive might be fun but I may have to hitch a ride as I doubt they'll allow my w116 on the plane.

I don't finish work till 6pm that day so it won't work for me...  I'm planning it well in advance so I (and others) can plan/request to have the day off.

Ok I've blocked out June 25th

Why don't we make it interesting and meet up at say the "Pig and Whistle" at East Trentham,

New Irish Owners, is said to have  good food and Guinness on tap.

plenty of open space to park the cars and take some group pictures.

Looks like interest in a GTG has gone cold....  Or is that just the Melbourne weather???

Melbourne weather!

Still good to go on the 25th, happy to meet anywhere north or northwest of the big smoke.

Gisborne has a really good Rec reserve in the heart of town and good coffee shops
