So Arebelspy is possibly coming to our neck of the woods. It was suggested (probably by me and there was some enthusiasm), that we could have an all day, or even a weekend event:
The Gungahlin Library has rooms that are available free to us because we are a non-incorporated group with a learning outcome - they even have their own kitchen, but we would have to ask specially if we wanted hot food. These rooms are available both on Saturday (when the library is open) and Sunday (when it is shut) because the rooms have a separate entry to the library.
We could have sessions, with a leader - for instance on solar panels, investment, property (there are people who have come to the Canberra meetups who could lead each of those sessions, if we twisted their arm) - so please suggest sessions you want, or could lead. I think this could be reasonably laid back, with a list of sessions, that everyone votes for, and the one with the most votes goes to the top of the list, and we come to them in order of interest. If we want time to just chat, we can do that at any stage.
There are BBQs in the area, so we could easily have one at around dinner time, and keep everything cool in the refrigerator in the library room. And we could have a cold lunch.
I have put suggested dates up the top in the poll, please nominate.
