Sounds good Peter, Kim is flat out in a new position and is away all next week. So I couldn't do the 16th. 23rd is better, but that depends upon what works for the majority. Also dependant on my son's water polo comp...

I'll put this out there for a venue, the CYC at Rushcuttes Bay, reasonable food in a great setting, and the start of the Rolex Sydney to Hobart race?

Cheers

Jules

Just checked, hotels are ridiculously high for the 22-24 February in Sydney. The hotel I booked at Darling Harbour in December for $150 per night is $315 per night for 22-24 Feb There must be some kind of activity in Sydney that weekend..

Anyway I am awaiting advice from the Federal Court if my case will be listed for 23 Feb, if it is I have no choice but to go to Sydney. But it would be great to go to the GTG, so I hope I can make it.

I'm back in Sydney on the 17th. I would really like to attend my first Sydney GTG. So the 23rd works for me.

If you want close to the CBD

I thought that NOLA place was pretty laid back , good food , nice lounging areas you can sit chat and a great view towards darling harbour !

Must be something out there in the CBD under 200 Steve?!

Have a great time everyone, wish I could make it. A two year absence for me is far too long...
