Excellent, I can come on the 1st too. Really enjoyed the last one - will endeavour to have phone charged for the next one so I don't stand outside for 10 minutes like an idiot wondering where everyone is.

Glad you can make it again :-) it was nice to catch up last time.

I have a sore throat that turned into an occasional, slightly sticky cough, so we'll see if I'm there or not...

Maybe one of these meetups we should just have wherever you happen to be that weekend :P

I can't come to this one, unfortunately (am selling a few things on Gumtree and have people coming buy to pick up stuff most of the morning). Next time, hopefully!

To anyone who reads this in the morning - are there any places nearby with free parking?

Three blocks north, there is a big park called Hyde Park. I think there is some free parking there, but it may only be a 1 or 2 hour limit.
Earning myself some delicious r.

I was so proud of myself for taking public transport, then I missed my train. Sigh. I will be there a little late.

For future reference free 2 hour parking on palmerston st just after Stuart st (two blocks away). Also parts of Stuart (between Fitzgerald and palmerston but only on one side) and lake st (between Newcastle and Stuart)  have two hour parking. Untimed parking on bulwer st about 5mins walk away.

Shall we make another date for the future? I enjoy having something to look forward to. And maybe a Sunday this time as others have said to allow more people to attend. I propose the Hyde park for a breakfast picnic with food monkey as a back up of the weather looks bad... Because I heard happier at home wants to use her new keep cup :-)

Yes! I am totally trying to steal this meet up format for meeting up with my non-forum friends as well, it works so well.

Late September is good for me, and Sundays are good too.

Sunday brunch picnic is likely to work for me, as is Hyde park. There's a big gazebo with picnic tables near the north west corner / Vincent St which will work unless the weather's truly horrible.

Sunday brunches at Hyde Park are generally good for me and my DW and mini mustaches too.   

We are away the first and last weekends in September (both are mustachian trips)...the ones in the middle would work :-)

So will we do a sort of pot luck picnic, where anyone who wants to bring something to share does so? (Don't worry, nothing too goey - learned my lesson with the caramel slice at our last picnic).

Hey folks, haven't been around at all lately, but thought anyone north of river might be interested in a flyer I found at my local library.

Dismantle (Bike Dr) is doing a basic bike maintenance workshop on Saturday 10th October (10am-12pm) at 61 Broun Avenue, Morley (Undercroft Carpark, civic centre).  My friend and I have already signed up, there's a max of 10 for the workshop and refreshments will be provided. 

No idea if there is any space left, you'll just have to email environment@emrc.org.au or call them on 08 9424 2216 to find out. :-)

I've had a family event pop up, so I'll be at the park from 9am to 10am and then I'll be leaving. Hope some other people can make it - I will wear a large red felt hat so newbies can find me.

Yikes, I'd better make sure I get there at 9am so I actually see you, then!

Where within the park are we meeting?

I don't think I've been there before, so I'm not sure where a good meeting spot is. It looks like there's a playground next to some parking on the corner of Glendower St and Throssell St that would be nice.

I ditched the family event. I will be around past 10am. You should all come early anyway to maximise chatting time :)

I'm assuming we'll all meet near this playground!

When I get there I'll post what I'm wearing to make it easier. Maybe I will put up my blue uv umbrella to be extra noticeable!

I think I'm in the right place! I'm sitting at a picnic table, black dress and pale blue cardigan.

Oh and I'm tall and chubby with a blone ponytail, if any newbies are trying to figure it out.

Anyone interested in a Food Monkey* breakfast on either Saturday 10 or Saturday 17 October?

*For anyone new: it's a cafe in Northbridge, decent and cheap food by Perth standards, and they don't mind us staying for hours.

Thanks, I made banana-and-honey steel-cut oatmeal for him yesterday morning because he was craving comfort food. :) Still on the mend and should be all good in a couple of days. Wish we could have been at the picnic though, it was great weather too!

Also yes, I would be interested in another Food Monkey breakfast. :D

So Saturday the 10th breakfast at food monkey is on!!! Hope to see you all there :-) 9am??? (For newbies it's near the corner of lake and Newcastle next to dominoes pizza you can't miss it. We are usually in the back room... The cafe is divided into a bunch of smaller rooms... but someone usually posts which room and a description of what someone is wearing on the day. )

It's the weekend of our (nominal) 6th year anniversary, so will be otherwise occupied :)
