    Hi all. Any interest in a Melbourne gathering some time in the not-too-distant future? Please reply with preferred dates and places. Personally I prefer some time before the end of February and a location at or near the CBD.

    I would be interested also CBD would be great. I have always wanted to do some of the arcades but there are lots of other nice places in the CBD & gardens depending on the day.

    I would be interested, but if it's much above 40ºC, then I might think otherwise.

    Mick.

    Okay, sounds good so far. Welcome, w9cae, I see this was your first post. Yes, the arcades sound interesting. Some of the lanes are pretty amazing too.

    I agree, Mick, that if the planned day is going to be a hottie, then we'll make other arrangements.

    Middle of Feb will probably be best for me with Saturdays being better than Sundays.

    Once more I will say that I would like to be there .....provided I don't get overtaken by other events. Saturday is better than Sunday, any weekend except 20-21 Feb.

    Been lurking around here for some time learning from many of the comments. I didn't realize I had never posted.

    Yep I hadnt noticed my post count there. I posted over in the UK forum looking for some Gnome enlarger bits. Any Melbourne folks who have some or know where some are give me a holler.

    I'll keep an eye on whatever day you guys pick. I'm usually hampered by kids sporting commitments...

    I'd also be interested and am happy with whatever day is chosen. Also, for those who were interested in putting in a bulk order for film and paper, etc. it might be a good time to organise the financial side of things or, if we get that sorted before the meet, a perfect opportunity to hand out everyone's goodies! :smile:

    This is the first time I've logged on for about 6 months - been busy building a new house - so what a nice surprise to find there's going to be a 'gathering' in Melbourne soon - the end of Feb. is good for me - as soon as I k now the exact date I'll try and book a cheap return flight for the day.

    I can do the Sunday, but my preference would be for the day before.
