    Ok folks,

    I'm a crap organiser of social events and I don't even know most of you
    buggers, so bear with me.

    As mentioned earlier, the Boxer family is coming to town. It'd be nice to
    get together with other Canberra/ACT region ausmotians. Boxer likes the idea
    of pizza or Italian (yum).

    If we have a sit-down thingy at a reasonable pizza restaurant I will need to
    know roughly how many ppl intend coming.

    Soooo..... show of hands please? Responding here is fine, or to bikerbetty
    at gmail dot com

    It will be somewhere between 18-23 Jan. I'm thinking the Friday (19th) or
    Saturday (20th) would be best - but would appreciate your input if you
    intend coming.

    The matter of a venue --- I'm assuming we have an even north/southside
    split. If we do a pizza place, choices include Zeffirelli's (Dickson)
    Woodstock (Garema Place Civic) or that Wood Fired Pizza place (one in Civic
    I think, but also in Woden?) Any other suggestions? (polite ones if you

    Not trying to make this difficult, honest <grin>

    betty, off to Deni for the weekend,
    and hoping to be overwhelmed by
    responses by Thursday 11 Jan (coz
    I'm riding to Victoria on Friday 12 and
    won't have time to organise anything
    after that!)

    Way overrated. Noisy, cramped and substandard pizza
    Pretty good pizza, though it was 3-4 years ago for me
    The italian restaurant near the old chesspit in civic mall had some great
    grub, but dunno if they do pizza

    Minx and I will be there (wherever "there" turns out to be).

    We can't really recommend a place, since the last Canberra restaurant
    we went to was an Ethiopian place[1] in Dickson about 2 years ago.

    [1] Surprisingly large servings[2], and very tasty.
    [2] Just short-circuiting the "starving Ethiopan" jokes. ;-)

    I am flexible about the type of restaurant (not Maccas etc) so I will leave
    it up to the locals.

    I will be staying at 100 Northbourne Av.

    So..... Tex..... does this mean you'll be joining us? I'm leaning towards
    Woodstock at this stage as a central location. I don't know where the old
    chesspit is/was, so I have no idea which Italian place you mean! (Have only
    lived in Canberra for 10 years, after all, and and for most of it never got
    anywhere near Civic!)

    Don't try to turn this into a democracy Betty. If you ask for opinions
    you'll just get them. Make a booking where ever you want and tell
    everyone where to go. (that's the sort of communication which
    ausmotions seem to relate to the best :) )

    Oh; and make sure you clearly state whether it's the Melbourne Canberra or
    the Sydney one!
    Knobdoodle, Jan 8, 2007
  11. With that kind of help, success is assured. Nev.. is right: book
    Woodstock and be done with it. If you make it the Friday I might make it
    (for some that's a compelling reason to choose another night).

    Right, Woodstock it will be. On the Friday (just for you Andrew). 19th Jan.
    Will book tomorrow and let you know the details :)

    Maybe, ye olde timetable is a bit chaotic ATM
    Sounds like a good choice.
    Well, you've not missed much :)
    Tex, Jan 8, 2007
  14. Friday nights are bad for me, and I've got previous commitments for the
    19th January. And Woodstock is on the wrong side of town. Sorry.
