I'll let you borrow my phone to watch it on Kayo! ;)
Thanks but the iPad is already on the packing list. I’m sure I won’t be the only one interested... isn’t that right @Rugby ?

Australia is in Pool D, so either way we will be playing at 1615 (SYD time). It just depends if that’s Saturday or Sunday:

@Rugby we might need a pre-dinner drinks plan for Saturday just in case Wales win our pool.:oops:

What's rugby?

Is it like 8 ball? 🎱
I’m happy to explain it to you at the aforementioned pre-dinner drinks. ;)

Would still love to attend since I'm local this time, but turns out I may not be in SYD that weekend (to be confirmed). I guess this is AFF after all! 😅

I may have missed this, but what's the capacity for the dinner and HARS tour?

I can't recall a limit for the dinner, so there's plenty of space. Meanwhile, HARS is limited by bus size of around about ~50 seats. I'd have to check my notes somewhere, I think it is slightly more than this. At this stage, there's plenty of space.

Just a note on the booking form - you are not able to select the number of guests for each event.

+1 and I are attending the Saturday night dinner but only I shall be attending the HARS event on Sunday.
Funds transferred.

Our accommodation is at Rydges North Sydney, no flights as we will be driving from ADL a week or so earlier.

The booking form needs to filled out separately for each person. That way individual preferences can be captured.

Hey Buzz that is quite a drive from Adelaide to North Sydney. Bring some drought breaking rain with you.

As @JessicaTam notes, you will need to fill in the form a second time for the second person. This is explained in the second paragraph on the booking form.

Please answer all questions. If you are bringing a partner you will need to fill the form in a second (or more) times, so we suggest listing them as "username +1" while providing their correct first and last name to differentiate you from them.

I'll wave. Rydges North Sydney is a few minutes walk from home :)

Anyway, I'll try and organise my form and payment over the next couple of days. Doubt I'll be able to do the Opera House tour as stairs are still difficult for me, but should be good for many of the other activities. Saturday dinner and HARS is a definite :)

@support and @Quickstatus do we have a time on the Friday night drinks? Specifically an end time? :p

Our flight (QF549) is due at 1940 thanks to you southerners tinkering with your clocks every summer!

On Sunday we are out at 1740 on QF540. Can’t leave a gap on your fancy spreadsheet. ;)

Still discussing with Mrs H what activities. Once that’s locked down I’ll confirm and pay.

As long as there are seats or leaning space I think we can kick on with drinks.
