Also, just some last updates pulled from the FB event page on Saturday, starting with the detailed schedule (including logo and mandatory Jad car shot, minus otter posing over it
* note: Google Map links:
Civic meet-up point [near the Legislative Assembly] - note, may need to pay for this parking as still Sat morning, about $2 for an hour
Cotter Avenue recreation area for the BBQ
Tidbinbilla tracking station [Discovery Drive - don't forget the turn-off!]
Capital Executive Apartments [108 Northbourne Av Braddon - just 2 blocks north of where Civic starts]
Gus' cafe [Garema Place, Civic]
Int'l flag display/Questacon [in the suburb of Parkes]
And some specifics:
The function room proceedings will start at 9pm
. The photoshooting at Tidbinbilla will probably be over at sunset, so you've probably got a couple hours to head off for dinner, whether that be a Kingsley's
hit or something more upmarket
(like the Haig Italian Restaurant
in our function venue!).
Remember, it's a $5 cover charge to get in (to the evening function, not the chicken place!) - please don't be a tightarse or all JED FREE REGO PLZ, after all, what price warmth on a crisp winter's evening!
As Vixen alluded to above; it's pretty much a drop-punt away from the International Flag Display meeting point on Sunday (and that's from 11am). To summarise from the FB event page: they're happy to let you suit in there, as long as you're on your best behaviour
. You can suit in the foyer, or it sounds like you can suit inside the paid area too (cost is $23, concession $17.50).
I'll be heading out to the Saturday stuff (head cold permitting!). Just... for the interstate folk, remember that it's Canberra, and it gets quite cold in Canberra
That's all. See you there!
