I encourage everyone to signup for the Saturday night dinner as we have an 'appropriate' guest speaker attending who I'm sure most (or all) those attending are very keen to meet. :D:D

More details to follow. :cool::cool:

(exactly) Where from and at what time would the bus be expected to be departing from Williamstown to RAAF? I won't be doingg Williamstown River Cruise nor Lunch but would like to hook up for RAAF ...

Also, what time back at "City Hotel"?

Rough times as follows:

11:30 River Cruise arrives at Williamstown (explore Williamstown & Lunch)
13:30/13:45 Meet up (if we are separated)
14:00 Depart Williamstown (foreshore/downtown area, exact address TBC, but will be a short walk from the train station)
14:30 Visit to the RAAF Williams Base (and museum) in Point Cook (2hr stay with museum tour guide and our very own straitman)
16:30 Depart from RAAF Williams Base
17:00 Drop off CBD Hotel(s) - probably the Hiltons and CBD.

Dinner isn't until 20:00

We have enough to people to qualify for the group rate for the river cruise, meaning it will reduce from $22 to $20 per person. (It's actually $19.80, but I will collect 80 cents towards the RAAF museum donation).

I hope you don't work with finances in your day job! ;)

I am sorry I am going to miss the dinner. The guest speaker is someone I have been keen to chat to for ages.

I have vague ideas and am also disappointed to miss out. But Bermuda calls!

Wondering if anyone (who's not yet posted arrival time) will be landing MEL around 4.30pm on Friday? If so, interested in sharing a taxi into the city (I'm staying at the HoTP but I'm sure we could come to an agreement :))

Probably a bit late to take the public transport option to Broadmeadows Station, but the past couple times through Melbourne I've found this bus/train combo really easy to manage :)
