    Update:
    Plan so far...
    We'll meet at 11am at the whale fin fountain in the park at the esplanade, Victor Harbour. Look here if you don't know where this is.
    We will probably head out to Granite Island first so that if anyone comes late we are easy to find/can't really be missed.

    If you're coming later in the day and want to work out where we are, call me

    If you need transport just say so - Together Squeezer or I can surely help you out.

    Just say so if you're going to come and I'll add you to the list. :)

    I missed out on the last one so I'm going to actually try to get to this one. It would be nice if there was a decent turnout - C'MON PEOPLE!

    Open to any options. Don't mind going down South to Victor but weather would need to agree.

    City area is probably the easiest for people transport wise.

    Other options could be Mt Lofty Botanic gardens ?

    I'm open to that but it's probably no easier than Victor Harbor for those who don't have their own transport.

    That said, I can offer a lift to Mt Lofty if people can get into the city - or to Victor if people aren't too far out of the way or can make it to some place along the way for me... :thumbup:

    You pretty keen Squeezer? Will add you to the list if yes.

    If the weather is good I'm definitely down for that, I love the place. I fear, however, that we will have to leave that for more clement weather.

    From BOM:
    Code:
    Sunday        Light shower or two.                   Min  7    Max 15
    Monday        Fine. Mostly sunny.                    Min  5    Max 16
    Tuesday       Few showers afternoon/evening.         Min  5    Max 15
    Wednesday     Few showers.                           Min  6    Max 16
    Thursday      Morning shower.                        Min  6    Max 15
    Friday        Mainly fine.                           Min  6    Max 14
    
    If it's mainly fine on Friday I hope it will clear up for the weekend. That'd suit us just fine. :thumbup:

    Ah crap, just realised it was the 15th (I swear that wasn't there when I first looked).
    The 15th is between my nightshifts, so not a chance I'm coming.

    Have fun guys :)

    Weather pending, I'll be in for the meet as well.

    Im considering driving down Saturday after lunch, doing a bit of shooting myself and perhaps stay the night around Victor for a sunset and sunrise before meeting everyone Sunday.

    (assuming we are going to Victor)

    Looking good... Well I don't know who voted for what, but there have been more votes cast than people confirming interest, and those who have confirmed interest seem more keen on Victor than anything else.

    Shall we go for Victor then, providing the weather doesn't suddenly get really bad? :)

    How are we going to organise this? Everyone want to meet at Victor or somewhere along the way (Southern suburbs perhaps so people aren't going out of the way) then convoy on down?

    Has everyone who has said they want to come got their own transport or will anyone need a lift?

    Seems a bit silly to have 9 cars drive down there with 1 person in each so I reckon if some people can share lifts that would be better (for the environment at least).

    I can give people a lift if they live somewhere in the Western or Southern suburbs, or if it suits more people who need a lift to just meet in town I can go through there as well. I have 3 comfortable spaces on offer or 4 if need be (not so comfortable then though) :p

    Depending on what time we want to head down and back, we could get a sunset in on the way back somewhere - like at Rapid Bay or Second Valley?
