    :biggrin: I have spoken to as many Aussies as I know and quite a few are keen to do an Australian meet.

    We have a date - weekend of 13/14 October
    We have a place - Sydney

    This should give those of us not in NSW time to pick up a cheap flight.
    Further details will be posted as they are arranged, but for now, that's all I have!

    Please note - It's NOT AT MY HOUSE - no matter how much Saffron tries to tell you it is. Although the discount on group divorces may be a benefit to both of us if I did have a house full of iSketchers.:twisted:

    Depending on where it is though, I may have to meet up with you mid-way - Mrs BM's birthday is on the 9th, and that usually means going out for dinner on the weekend.

    Will try to convince her that we should go out on her actual birthday AND 6 Oct so I can free up the 13/14 and get bonus brownie points.

    Have you thought of anywhere more specific than Sydney? It's kind of a big place you know - not like Taswegia. Scatikins suggested maybe Parramatta - which is becoming the business centre of Sydney. There are some good pubs and bars there and hotel prices may be cheaper than the City.

    I don't know Sydney much, so was going to contact some of you Sydneysiders for suggestions. I just wanted to let people know the date.

    I am so jealous! I'd love to be there! Not only to meet the rabble but Australia is such a lovely place. Hopefully in a couple of years I'll be down near Melbourne so if the Sydney meet goes will then perhaps we'll have a Melbourne one!! :biggrin:

    Best Priced Flights to Sydney

    Our Best Flight Fare from HEATHROW to SYDNEY is from £430 + £201 tax (Total £631) flying with Korean Airlines. Leaving on 09 October 2007, and returning from Sydney on 16 October 2007.

    cherry hun, flights to Sydney in october, aren't too dear, I have found some from as low as £380 + tax. An over night stop (9 hours +) in the far east can also bring the price down a bit.

    edit: don't think I would go, as much as i would love to met the oz lot, 1) I wouldn't leave my family that long.
    2) i'm not a lover of long haul flights/ multi plane trips.( unless someone wants to pay for me to fly business/first class)

    What and be completely without Ruth?

    Ok I will get serious and research some places - what are your goals and expectations?

    Cute? Us lot? Seriously misguided there kiddo. But if I come to England I will buy you a brownie and maybe even a hot chocolate or milkshake. In the meantime here's a couple of brownies for you.


    Oh I'm sure I could find a place for you. Do you mind sharing? Jessie doesn't.>.>.>.>[​IMG]
