    Wink2 1st 2012 meet on 24th March for Melbourne CPFers???

    Its been 4 months since our last meet in Oct 2011. Anyone interested for a BBQ and CPF meet? Was hoping to get out of the usual metropolitan parks and into a rural environment where we won't get bothered by police choppers. Suggestions anyone?

    Somehow I missed this thread.

    I'll check my calendar.

    Anywhere north of Melbourne is good for me

    Now all we need is someone from Geelong to demand a southerly location.

    Leoht will want Ballarat.

    Can't please everyone, and I called dibs first!

    (And no, Norm, you can't moderate my posts to show otherwise!)

    Either way is no problem for me, I love driving. If we have it at Wangaratta, Norm could drive to my place in Notting Hill and then jump in my car. If we have it in Warragul, Simon could drive to my place and hop in my car. Now we just need votes as to the location.


    PS: I'll bring beer...again...lamb roast anyone?

    I'm not dragging my spit to Melbourne. It's portable, but not *that* portable.

    If you want a lamb roast, come and get it

    I'll happily supply the lamb.

    If it's up your way Simon it should be an overnighter.

    Tempting... but I'd have to see if my wife can survive 24hrs with 2 screaming kids without a referee. I don't mind staying till late and driving back, but its too dangerous for Norm to drive back to Warragul late and alone. So if we have the meet at Wangaratta, it'll make the best sense to be an overnighter. I'll need a few days to plan the situation at home first before I can confirm. BTW, are we sleeping out in the open or in the barn/guest house?

    The date looks good for all, what about the location - Wangaratta - ok? I know its not a central location, but to tell the truth, I was getting bored going to the same locations like Lysterfield Lake, Jells Park, Westerfolds etc...

    How's this for a location:

    http://www.exploroz.com/Places/98365...hams_Camp.aspx

    About 15 mins from town, we can take the spit, Leoht (or anyone else that wants to) can camp. There's a 500m or so open space as a shooting range, and it'll be dark as kamahl up there. There's even longdrops and a wood burning BBQ if you want to add snags to the spit-roast lamb.

    Here's a Google Earth shot of the camping area:

    I like the look of it Simon. Is it State forest, National park Or private land?

    State park. Now that I think of it, you might have some trouble with your dog... If you keep it on a lead you'll be fine, but if you let it run, they do bait for foxes up there.

    Edit: actually, dogs are banned from the Warby state park... Poo.
