    It's 'cause the Sydney guys don't have someone to cool them lamb on a spit

    Everyone could always meet up in Canberra :P there's two guys there who never get to see anyone!

    I'm not sure when I can sneak off to Melbourne. If some dates are tossed around I'll see what I can do.

    I'm out that weekend and the prior weekend.
    The moon is waxing on the 30th and would be about the same as the 23rd.

    At Sherbrooke, the dense foliage blocks out any moonlight anyway. 30th sounds fine.

    Yep. Look for Hallam North road in google maps, then drop to street view.

    Just got back from checking out the proposed venue at 0230hrs. Took a nice cruise alone on this cold and foggy night via Wellington Rd. Almost hit 6 bloody roos lining the friggin road, saw them in time and managed to swerve away. Got to the end of Hallam North Rd carpark, a solitary Mitsubishi Pajero parked smack in middle of the tiny space with seriously foggy windows made the "recce" more difficult as I didn't want to intrude. Looks very dark and isolated though, even with residential properties lining Hallam North Rd, Lysterfield South. The perfect setting for Romero's Night of The Living Dead...

    I didn't see any picnic tables and benches to sit on and to put our stuff, it seems we may have to use ours car bonnets for that, which is fine by me.
