EOI - Sunset Sculpture By The Sea

Postby gstark on Sat Oct 18, 2008 12:56 pm

Is there any interest in doing the Sculpture by the Sea at South Bondi - Bronte?

I'm thinking of a weekday evening to try to avoid the crowds, with a visit to the Beach Burrito Bar afterwards for Margies'n'ChilliWhatever.

As the event finishes on November 2 (it's running for a shorter period this year) my thoughts are either Friday next, Oct 24, or the following Monday, Oct 27.

People can roll up any time they like, and we can gather at BBB (Campbell Pde, North Bondi) from around 7:30.

Because less people will be likely to be out and about on a Monday, the 27th would be my preference, but I am also open to other suggestions.

Trevor,

There's no such thing as too much Hitchcock.

George, Ashley, excellent.

Who else?

Pencil me in tentatively!

Andrew,

They don't let me use anything sharp any more. I've crayoned you in. :)

It'll be good to catch up with you again.

Penci...er, crayon me in Gary. Doing the sculptures as the evening sky dims sounds like an opportunity not to be missed.

I managed to pilfer a spray can over the weekend, Matt.

Looking forward to seeing everyone this evening. Please send me a PM if you need my mobile.

It's a bloody large hospital...surely you can sneak away for a few hours without being missed? Just give your patients a bit of extra 'sleep well', slip off the blue gown and mask, out through the window and down some knotted sheets and join in the fun! :D :D :D
