Enjoy!!

The Mupersans will be there!!! But when does the daylight savings change? At midnight on the 29th or at midnight on the 30th? A bit confused about this cos it'll affect the time that we have to be at Bobbin Head..... :P

We'll have a car so will make our own way there.

Can't wait to meet everyone! :-)))

Cheers,

Mandy

PS: Still don't have internet so will just go straight to Bobbin Head on Sunday and hope that no plans change before we get there.

It won't affect the time. It will still start at the same time relative to NSW. It will just start at a different time relative to South Africa.

You have set your watch to Aus time...haven't you? :whome: Just checking.

LOL!!! :-) My calendar at home (bought in Sydney) says daylight saving changes on the 30th. No wonder it was going cheap! :P

See you on Sunday. Just spoke to Tytan - him and his wife will be joining us as well.

Cheers,

Mands

Have a great day,

Hi everyone

My husband and I landed on the 18th of Feb and I've been desperately searching the web for social get togethers so delighted to hear about the event planned for Sunday...

Been really home sick the past 2 weeks so would appreciate some social contact with people in the same boat.

William and I will be there on Sunday...

Thanks

Hi Linky

Shoo glad you found us before the weekend. Where are you staying it will be great to meet you. If you know any other saffers you are welcome to bring them along.

Hi S

We are staying in Dulwich Hill (one of the Inner West suburbs), it is close to Marrickville Road which seems to be more well known than Dulwich Hill!!!

I've allready e-mailed a family who has immigrated earlier this month - I am still to meet them myself so would be an excellent time for this on Sunday - I am hoping they can make it, otherwise really looking forward to meeting everyone from the forum.

Bobbin Head looks excellent, hoping for good weather :-)

See you Sunday

Hi there

I will put up some balloons (hopefully I can find some green and gold) so you know where to find us. For those of you that don't know Bobbin Head you go through the gate through the windy roads and when you cross the bridge with the boats on the right we will be on the grassed area on the left.

See you all tomorrow.

Hi sa2auz,

I will also have a look for balloons, only thing is that it will take us about 1 & 1/2 hours to get there so I hope we will be able to make it a bit early.

See all tomorrow

Hi everyone

Thank you so much for organising the get together.

Was so nice to meet everyone and chat to people that has been through the same experiences or living it at the same time as us :thumbdown:

Have a good week

Hi

Thanks to everyone who made the effort to meet up today it was great to meet so many new Sydneysiders. :thumbdown: I know it can be daunting to meet a whole lot of strangers but I would like to encourage anyone who didn't make it this time to join us next time, we really are quite normal, (I think) :whome:

I wish I had more time to chat to everyone, I think we had a good turnout and it will be great to see some photos.

I really enjoyed finally putting faces to names and I am going to make a effort to remember everyones real names, faces etc.

Lovies

PS. Hope nobody got stopped by the cops at the gate.

It was FABULOUS meeting all the Sydneysiders yesterday!!! Thanks for a great day.

I took loads of pics but haven't downloaded them yet. I'm just quickly having a looky-loo at the forum before I start work so when I FINALLY get my ADSL hooked up (Wednesday), I'll post some of the pics.

Have a great week everyone!!!

Cheers,

THE MUPERSANS
