    Any Melbourne APUG members?

    Do any of the members of APUG from Melbourne and surrounds want to get together in January, 2005? Dates would have to fall in the first two weeks for me to be able to attend.

    I'd love to meet up with some of you, since my home location of Kalgoorlie, WA, makes personal interaction with other real photographers impractical.

    Cheers,

    Yep, I'm in.
    Thanks for setting up a new thread - I think we hijacked Nicole's avatar thread.

    I'd love to meet up but am just too far away in Perth. 3 day drive is a bit far... and good old Qantas has recently doubled the frequent flyer points required to get anywhere which is a bit unfair for us West Aussies!!! Those points are becoming useless these days. Suppose it'll always get me to Kalgoorlie.

    Qantas really doubled the FF points required? Are you sure. It used to cost us 30,000 points to go return to Broome. Now it's 60,000?

    It cost me 120000 points for one flight from Perth to Cairns last year because I couldn't get a direct flight via the center and was penalised for a 12 hour trip Perth/Adelaide/Melbourne/Sydney/Cairns and didn't even want to fly the milkrun in the first place. I have tried in the past month to get another flight Perth/Cairns/Perth and was told it will cost me (if I get the direct flight) 60000 now instead of 30000!

    Yeah, I'd be interested too. I live in Olinda about 45 minutes out of the city.

    Ooh, Olinda! I've got memories of catching the train and bus there when we had snow in the Dandenongs. I should have been at Uni, but how often does a trip to the snow cost $5?

    Your neck of the woods would make a great meeting place, but we'll keep the options open for now. See how many others are interested first.
