    As straitman has already posted the annual Oz Fest is happning in "The Red Centre" of Australia this year.

    As with previous years, a number of our American (and Kiwi) friends are flying down for the do, and will be staying a few days either side. Check out this Flyertalk Thread for more details. There will likely be several informal drinks and dinners in MEL, SYD, HBA and elsewhere over the weeks prior and post Oz Fest.

    Should you wish to attend any of the events please post in this thread or the FT thread.

    Now, a reasonable number of us will be flying to Melbourne on Monday at the conclusion of the do, so boxo proposes we do a dinner and drinks function in MEL on Monday 26 May 2014.


    When: TBC, Monday 26 May
    Venue: TBC, Melbourne VIC
    What: Dinner & Drinks

    Attendees:

    I'm travelling AYQ-xSYD-MEL that afternoon/evening arriving around 9pm, so it won't be an option.

    Keep an eye on the FT thread, there may be something the next day also, but I suspect Monday will be the bigger event ;)

    I'll buy you a glass of water!

    I can now be considered platinum for this, and will be there about 6ish. (Not "fish" as my autocorrect seems to want me to say).
