    I don't suppose we can delay this until I land my FFIII? I'm sure Gav would love a play with it

    Bloody hot this morning, there was ice and frost on the front yard and the roof of my car. Time to get the bathers and thongs and head to the beach.

    Or we could go to the Horswood Rd end of the lake and have a BBQ since we have CPFers coming from country areas like Wangaratta, Ballarat and Warragul. Having a good BBQ on a cold winters night will make the trip for all more enjoyable. I can supply the meat, just need a head count so I can buy enough.

    I'm just looking on Google Maps from the roundabout and it looks like there are gates into the park? Does anyone know if they are closed at a certain time of night? I think Jells Road locks theirs and I know Karkarook Park around the corner from me locks up at "dark". Not terribly flashaholic friendly!

    A short walk to the BBQs would be OK as long as there is still somewhere to park at that time of night.

    EDIT 8am to 8pm daylight saving time according to this: http://parkweb.vic.gov.au/explore/pa...sterfield-park

    Horswood Rd entry gate will be locked but the exit will not be locked, however there are spikes to prevent cars from entering via the exit gate ala Jells Park. For those who feel worries about driving over spikes, there is a 24hr carpark (cnr of Horswood Rd & Logan Park Track) at the entrance on the right as you are about to enter the gates of the park. From the 24hr carpark, its about a 150m walk to the pictured picnic area.

    Before I run out and buy the meat:

    1) Are we meeting up at Horswood Rd entrance of Lysterfield Lake or Hallam North Rd(which doesn't have any BBQ facilities)?
    2) How many of us?

    I've Just spent the same money on a FireFoxes III - I'll show you what it's capable of (assuming it gets here soon. Tracking says it's in Australia, but that just means the real wait has begun)

    Chris:

    What type of portable BBQ is it? Wood fire or gas? If its too much trouble for a BBQ maybe I'll just get a bucket of KFC.

    I've noticed that our meetup thread is once again spending a lot of time talking about food.

    We'll end up with a reputation soon!

    It stopped being about the lights a few meets ago. Now it's about the meat.

    My little Fire-Foxes III arrived today and will definitely be making an appearance!
