At yesterday’s latte-blog the consensus was to have an outdoor meet once the weather got cooler, to make it a family-friendly location, and get as many bloggers along we can. April Fool’s Day seemed to all concerned to be the perfect choice, so long as it starts after the April Fool’s ref blows the midday whistle.
So, Saturday 1st April in the Royal Botanic Gardens from 1pm it is.
It was suggested somewhere near the bottom of the U of Farm Cove would be best – how about the lawn to the east of the Main Pond? [map] There’s a toilet block nearby, also an overpriced kiosk about 100m south, and the group should be easily visible from the main path by the waterfront.
BYO whatever, and maybe put some thought into nibbles for sharing? Those with bad backs/knees should bring a folding chair.
I have no idea on seekrit signal stuff for mystery bloggers. I’m sure we can come up with something over the next month though.
UPDATE: some photos of where we’ll be here. So far it looks like Morgan, Tim and the tigtogmob, unless some of you Sydney blog-buggers are waiting for a seekrit signal. We never came up with one.
UPDATE 2: If anyone is planning on wandering past to check if we’re freaks before strolling up and introducing themselves, look out for Steed’s bowler and umbrella.
UPDATE 3: It’s looking a bit blustery and the clouds are louring, so if there’s nobody on the lawn with a bowler hat take a look up in the kiosk seating area to the south of the pond.
UPDATE POST-EVENT: a good time was had by all. More details here.
