Soo just heard from my sister, turns out her family is in Port Douglas back on Sunday.  So long story short I will be in canberra easter Monday. If there is an Impromptu Meetup - im there. If one or two of you want to grab coffee that would be great.  Looking forward to meeting Deborah and lonerMatt if you guys are available?

Well, there is a BBQ at Haig Park - near where Masson St meets Moore St. Haig Park (for those who don't know) is a very long and narrow park that separates the city from the north. Braddon ends at Haig Park, but the BBQs are on the west side of Northbourne Ave rather than the East side. The BBQ is a little hard to spot, as it is surrounded by bushes, but it is immediately north of the carpark. Or we could go to one of the places in Lonsdale St Braddon, but they might be shut on Easter Monday.

Or we could go to Glebe Park - which is even closer to the city (actually in the city) - and it has bbqs too although I'm not sure where. It is a nicer park.

City centre would suit me, but I'm aftriad I've had to make a decision not to come this time. Some more family issues to sort.

I'm happy with your Judgment Deborah.  I don't know Canberra that well but will be visiting my Sister in Scullin.  From my limited experience - compared to Sydney - everywhere in Canberra is only 15 minutes away.

Also, I agree it will be hit and miss trying to find somewhere open.

Update: friend texted me asking if I want to hike Kosciozsko tomorrow. Yes I do, this makes me feel incredibly guilty to cancel on this a second time around.

Sorry folks, a free ride to nature and a day spent hiking in the snow is too good to turn down.

As we appear to be down to two, I think it wise to cancel the meetup.

Thanks for the organising effort though, Deb.  Have a safe and fun hike Matt.

Hi everyone!

I'm pretty new to this, but appreciate any help you might have, I'm struggling with my garden in the winter and I'm getting lazy with the bike. But knowing there are some locals around, is a huge help. A lot of people know about the blog, and we have been swapping advice, so there might be a few more mustachians out this way than the forum is showing.

From reading the thread, looks like the meetup hasn't happened yet? I'd be keen to come along if there is another one organised soon, the picnic/bbq idea is nice.

Hello all. I have just had a BRILLIANT idea. We can have our next meetup at a library, and I can bring my screen printing gear. I have loaded down the PNG that MMM has put on his T-shirt - see http://www.mrmoneymustache.com/shirts/. Everyone can bring their t-shirt Or whatever else - BBQ Apron?), and we can all end the meetup with MMM T-shirts (if you want them).

What do you think?

When do we want to do this? As usual, I have changed the poll...

At the moment I'm free on the 2nd, 9th and 23rd, so I'm easy!

Marginal preference for the 9th as it's during school holidays.

I think the T-shirt printing is a great idea. I've voted for 23rd July as its my only possible weekend. I might well be too overloaded to make it...would have to make a final decision closer to the time.

Well, if anyone wants a meet up before November, and for me to organise it, we will need to meet up on the weekend of 2nd or 3rd September. Anyone for that?
