    A perfect plan if I ever saw one! (What do you mean there needs to be more at step 2?!)

    I’d love to come :-) The 22nd/23rd is free so far, but my 8 year old has Band Camp the following weekend and I believe us parent types are needed to do supervision and concert audience duties at various times over the weekend so I’m pretty sure Sunday 30th is out and the 29th is uncertain.

    at the moment, any of those dates work for me.

  3. Zebee

    They all work for me too.

    I’ll be in Aus and fairly recovered from jetlag on the 29th/ 30th, so if it happens then I’ll definitely try and get there.

    I would love to come! I definitely can’t make the 23rd and probably not the 22nd because I’m in a choir (USyd Musical Society) and our big semester 1 concerts are that weekend. The next weekend is just fine though!

  6. Eddy

    I’d like to come! All of those dates are also fine for me right now.

    I’d love to bring the Tiny Tyrant up (and maybe a Wicked Fairy, if he can be convinced). Tyrant’s birthday is the 16th though, so I’m anticipating family and friendly antics on the weekends either side, and Saturdays tend to be booked up, so the 30th would be nicer for me.

  8. Chally

    Um, that’s gonna be a busy time for me, so don’t feel you have to take me into account when planning or anything. I could perhaps make the 23rd.

  9. Beppie

    Any of those dates are good for me.

    I’d love to come! Thanks for organising something :)

    I’m out of town 22/23 May. 29/30 May would both be grand, with a preference for 30 May.

    Via geekfeminism: I’d be coming up from Canberra, so as long as there is plenty of notice (I do on-call work), then any of those dates would suit. Also happy to give other Canberrans a lift if they have no convenient transport.

    Hiya Trix!

    just jumping on the back of your comment to give a friendly wave to everyone coming over from geekfeminism: I’m looking forward to meeting those of you planning to come along!

  13. mimbles

    Oh, I don’t know, I may still be able to stop by briefly. I’ll certainly be keeping this in mind when it comes to volunteering for band camp duties.
    *practices saying “no”* ;-)

    Oh, no! Never mind, Mary, and thank you. I hope you all have fun!
