    If the weather is ok - I will be there ..

    As best as I can see - There is no cover - there are tables ..
    I will try and be there before sunset .. Maybe throw some RC buggies in the boot ..
    If its windy ? No point bringing Quads or wings ( Flying wings )

    Weather prediction is still POX for Saturday ..
    Might have to play this one by ear !

    I've got a mate's 40th Birthday party just come up for this saturday. I can do both, but I won't arrive until 8pm or so.

    I'm OK with it being called off, especially if the weather is going to be shit.

    Weather prediction just keeps getting worse ....

    Cloudy. Very high (95%) chance of showers, most likely in the late morning and afternoon. The chance of a thunderstorm from the late morning. Winds northwesterly 25 to 35 km/h tending northerly 35 to 50 km/h in the morning then turning west to northwesterly 35 to 60 km/h in the middle of the day.

    Not real pleasant. I'll say no for myself at this point. Its grey and overcast here and the rain is imminent. Happy to wait for a nice Spring evening, i may even have a couple of new lights by then.


    Edit; 3.15PM Absolutely pizzling down here.

    Yep, a cold evening and some warm clothes is fine. The rain is another matter, specially if there's no shelter. Yellowgum looks like you could probably have a fire also??? Nothing better than that. You have that moon chart Matt? Nothing wrong with May/June/July and no moon.

    3.20 and its PIZZILING down in Shepp. Bloody miserable.

    That'd give me a chance to maybe manage another light or two.........

    May give a couple of other members the chance to attend also.

    Mike.



    Hey, you Sydney guys, the stars don't always align, and things don't always go as planned, its how it is. Keep at it, and you are bound to get a meet going.
    Cheers from VIC.

    14th of June? Would be ok by me. Does it give others plenty of time to plan? It'll be cold but if its not raining, one can always rug up. Just enough time to maybe also welcome another torch into the household.....






    Nothing wrong with two lights coming into the fold at the same time, just need to work out how to explain that phenomena to the financial controller.......................

    23rd might work for me, but I'd need to confirm closer to the date.

    Are we meeting at Yellow Gum still or a different site?

    As long as the weather permits ...
    If the weather is Garbage then a site with some cover would be nice ...

    I think the last cold ( Brrrr ) meet we had , my feet got really icy cold and the breeze cut through my two jumpers like a knife .. ( So - a wind proof jacket - better foot wear - Gloves - a hoody ! hmmmm a hoody )

    For show and tell = Nitecore's - EC22 - MT22C - EA8W - Concept 1 and a Klarus XT2CR + a few others ..
