    Default Sydney, Australia....Flashaholics Rollcall

    Hey guys,
    I was just wondering how many CPFers there are in Sydney, Australia. I've noticed the occasional member, but I was curious as to how many there are.
    Perhaps if you'd mention your suburb as well, we might be able to organise some sort of meeting in the future

    BTW: Im living in Epping, up in the northern end of Sydney

    Hurstville reporting in!

    Errrmm, it's...southeast i guess. Definitely interested!

    I've been talking in PM's to another sydney member, him and i were considering getting together to compare some incans/hotwires. Perhaps he'd be interested too! I'll let him reveal/reply if he is

    Oh by the way - I know this isn't the right thread to do it in but seeing as everyone here is from Sydney it's a great opportunity.

    I'm about to post my MAG85 - (800 torch Lumens!) on the BST but before I do I'd like to offer it to anyone local first because if you're in Sydney I'll deliver it to you for free.

    I woun't use up any more of Protaeus' thread with details so all I'll say is if you are interested PM me by Saturday 8TH April, after that it will be in the BST. (first to say "I'll take it" gets it - price will be slightly below cost & no $30USD shipping cost so it's a good deal)

    Thanks Protaeus - sorry for distracting your thread, I'll go away now...

    cool, perhaps we should all be advertising our lights 'locally' to save on postage costs

    The only thing i have to pass on is an ARC AA LUXIII running at about 200ma.... just dont use it any more.

    That's a good idea, perhaps even group buys too!

    I have 2 more potential members for ya:

    1. Baijaman (not sure if he's sold all his flashlights)
    2. Brian (not sure what his handle is - you'll need to ask Baijaman if he can remember it)

    They're both in Sydney. Great guys

    Protaeus,
    Uni mid session recess is coming up ain't it ? A meet sometime that week/end would be good for all the uni students lol. I'm definitely in...no ideas on location though. Too much ambient lighting around sydney for a flashaholic meet...maybe a large park in sydney somewhere...one without many lights. Eg there's a pretty big dark park near where i live, long lengths etc.

    The oval at the top wouldnt be bad though...

    I wouldnt want someone to call the cops on us hahaha

    especially since the cops are only 2minutes away :P

    Lol How about something like dinner then the fun part ? (Playing with lights ie.) As i said, there's a pretty big dark park near where i live. I've got a photo of it actually, the photo is only part of the park, there's another section with walkways and play equipment, and is flanked on one side by bush.



    The other sections don't have housing nearby...but there''ll probably be so much light there that people will think it's just daytime anyways

    hot dang! thats a massive looking park!

    So is that park in Hurstville? That shouldnt be too hard to get to.

    What does everyone else think?

    It's called Carrs Park and it's 2 minutes from hurstville, it's just off Princes Highway . That photo is seriously, about 15% of the park... It's one of those with a long biketrack/walkway, unofficial bushpaths (created from kids living nearby, bikes, walkers). One side is water, other side is bush... play equipment area, bbq area, gazebos... very big in summary .
    (There's a pretty good pizza place near the park, 1 minute or so an open till late-ish. Flashaholic get together, dark park, good pizza hrmm!)

    I'm open to other suggestions though! Maybe some other members know of a better/darker place or one easier for everyone to get to ?

    /Cheer Orbit!

    Yep there is a carpark near that park, but i don't think we've decided on a park yet. In the end, i think we should let Protaeus decide as he started the thread .

    I remember reading about the lights on your car in a HID thread...you're going to set the park on fire!!

    Unless someone else has anyother suggestions for locations or have problems getting down to Hurstville, i think your park should be pretty good.

    Will everyone here be able to make it down to Hurstville?

    Also, does anyone have days they would prefer for this get together?
    or even days in the near future which they know they cant make?


    Don't forget, you can bring your friends whom you want converted to flashaholicism

    Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays are best for me - every other night has something on.

    this will be cool - I might come empty handed if my MAG85 gets sold by then and my 2C Rop isn't ready.

    Can we start getting a list of lights together?

    I might be bringing a MAG85 or a 2C ROP LE

    Would like 2 weeks notice if possible.
