POI Canberra meet - Weston Park 30/10/11

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Well Sunday appeared to go well, so I have been asked by a number of people to do another one at the end of October.

I may or may not be there as our 2nd son is due to come into the world on that day. However even if I don't make it I still want you all to have a good time.

The venue is Weston Park, at 12 noon. I tried to give you a link to Google maps but it didn't work. Anyway, the BBQ area I am thinking of is opposite the mini railway, there is running water and loos there as well. There is also a playground for the kids plus sandpits.

I think this time if you can wear a sports top from the UK then it will make it easier to be recognised as poms for any of the newbies.

Let me know what you all think

Nik

Sounds good thanks for organising. I like the idea of the sports tops, as it was hard to spot which group we needed to walk over too and introduce ourselves :-)

We should be able to make this one (me, DH and the kids who will have just turned 2) . We don't have any UK Sports tops though, but I can get DH to wear his Doctor Who t-shirt!! :biglaugh:

It's a shame I don't arrive until mid-November! My Leeds United shirt will just have to wait until the next one!

I am going to try and make it, will be nice to meet people other than the folk I am working with, I was actually at that picnic spot on Monday with work, it is lovely and not too far from where the Kangaroos chill out in the sun :)

 

I've only been here a week, so hopefully I'll get some hints and tips from people who have been here longer

Hi Nik.

 

Unfortunately, Mark and I are both working in Brisbane for the next 3 or 4 weeks and won't be back in Canberra until November. But we're definately up for a get-together in November sometime.

 

Cheers,

 

Michael.

Looking forward to it assuming we can sort out taxi service etc. as we have the outlaws with us, assuming they want to come along.

 

Don't those kids always keep you waiting mate ;)

Looks like we will be there plus the outlaws and perhaps Woof's but I need to check the rules for the area I think they are ok as I am sure there is an actual dog park in Weston.

 

Want to bring them as they only arrive on Fri afternoon and want to spend as much time as poss before going back to work on Mon with them.

All the best Nik, when the new arrival does come!!! We are hoping to come along on Sunday and will probably be wearing either Scottish or Australian rugger tops if that counts!!! (We won't have the kids this weekend though)

Well no kid yet, so we are looking to be coming today. I think I might get there early to get the Breakfast on. At least the weather has improved. Should anyone need a lift then PM me with your number and as long as your not in Hall, we have 2 spare seats in the car.

 

Best get to woolworths and stock up then

Looks like we're not going to make it after all as some family stuff has cropped up. Hopefully next time....
