16 or 17/9 - Floriade Photo Meet

Postby stubbsy on Tue Sep 12, 2006 11:02 pm

Hi Canberra (and Sydney people) I'll be in Canberra next weekend 16 and 17 September. Thought it made sense to have a photo meet while I'm there - take in Floriade and the rest of the sights.

At this stage there's me and ChristianD. Who else is interested? And do you have a preference for a date (see poll above)

Floriade Saturday is looking most likely. No doubt we'll do something on Sunday, but I need to leave after lunch - it's a 6 hr drive home to Newcastle
