MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - Meet & Greet - Sun 21 Oct

EDIT: see below; locked in for Sun 21 Oct ...at this stage.

hey guys

been a while since we had an Alfa Meet. unfortunately the last effort was a bit of a disaster due to lack of support - me included unfortunately - but we should catch up again.

i'm away throughout september on holidays overseas, but hopefully we can organise a breakfast/brunch meet in october? i don't have my work roster yet, so can't commit to a date, but hopefully in the 2nd or 3rd weekend of october.

are we up for it?

Yeah S C I'm in. But can't be for me on 6 or 7 Oct as there is a little race called the Bathurst 1000...an annual must watch event like the Australian F1 GP.

Re: MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - October Meet?

In a couple of weeks I'll have a chance to look at cars, but only for one week. If I find something then I'd love to join.

I won't have another chance to look until late November/early December though - and a purchase seems more likely then.

Re: MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - October Meet?

@ AGM155: how'd you go with searching for an alfa? what model, any advances?

would be great to have you along - alfa or not. once we settle a date and more details, they'll be posted here. i'm overseas - away from home until very end of Sep, so haven't a chance to move things along, but will do so when i return.

Re: MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - October Meet?

shiny_car, I'm looking for a 166 so there isn't much choice with second hand cars. I'm going to look at two over the next two days (black one at IMC and a silver at Peter Wright's used cars).

I'll see if I can still show up once a date is set - I certainly would love to come along.

Cool 156G, we should have a date set in the next week or so. It won't be first weekend in Oct (6 or 7).

See you there

Re: MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - October Meet?

time to try and set this in concrete.

at this stage, i am free (from work) all 3 remaining weekends of October:
13-14
20-21
27-28

just choose a morning when the weather will be fine and sunny.

in general, i'm thinking meeting up in the morning for brekkie/brunch at around 10~11am.



EDIT: see below; locked in for 21 Oct

Re: MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - October Meet?

ok, i'm now NOT working weekend of 20-21, so this becomes free for me again.

but i'm thinking Sun 28 as the best option at this stage.

Re: MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - October Meet?

so maybe 13-14 or 20-21 Oct.

late morning seems good, for late breakfast. say a 10am meet-up, then on to brekkie at around 11am after a bit of gas-bagging.

where? open to suggestions. last brekkie was in williamstown. happy to make it elsewhere. would be good to have a place with a decently big carpark that is easy to find, where we can meet. then walk/drive to nearby brekkie.

so, docklands, port melbourne, rathdowne st carlton (as opposed to lygon st), etc, are potential places.

i drive up from past geelong, so somewhere central around the city, or out west would suit me. but 'central' is likely to suit more people.

Re: MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - October Meet?

ok YES, it's ON!

DATE: Sun 21 Oct
TIME: 10~10:30am meet-up for a chat, then on to brekkie at 11am
MEET LOCATION: Melbourne Zoo carpark, area infront of main entrance
BREKKIE LOCATION: Rathdowne St, Carlton North, at either La Luna Bistro or Rathdowne St Food Store

La Luna Bistro 320 Rathdowne St, Carlton Nth
Rathdowne St Food Store 617 Rathdowne St, Carlton Nth

i think they are fairly close to each other (certainly should be easy walking distance). in case one place is overly busy, we can try the other.

you can PM me for my mobile number.
