I'll probably be more .. than OO for turn 1, aiming to be at least o. by the end of the day, not long to go now!

How much time will we be actually spending in the M3s anyway? I thought we were ONLY driving them, until I read the e-mail and saw 328i and 125i I had the 125i as a courtesy car the other week, enough said.

I am pretty sure it is a generic email for all the courses. So should be M3 all day - it is called the M dynamic course after all; otherwise it's false advertising and they will have to bring us back for another day , on them.

Probably not the best location for a quiet dinner after an exciting day though!
Let me think about this one, or I might just get Amex to think about this one since no more suggestions are coming up. I have heard meat - so anywhere with meat would be good I assume, and will pick places where we can fine dine and loud at the same time.

How about Saturday? The Melbounre guys want to meet up? Garage Cafe or Albert Park?

Looked at Amex suggestions and everyone's location, I think Rockpool on Thursday night 6:30pm and Atlantic on Friday night 8:30pm.

I will book for 8 for each night. Let me know closer to the date if there are any changes.

Also, any one on the forum is welcome, just put your name down. Are we able to organise a meet on Saturday morning? Any suggestions where?

Do you want to create a new thread - [MEL] 1Addicts meet or continue here ?

Sat: I found The Point@Albert park to be convenient but might not suit those that are interstate. We could have them around crown again if need be

I think a new thread would be good. I have a car and my flight doesn't leave till two so I can carry a few with me. Also, I require roast pork, roast duck and barbeque pork to be brought home for CNY eve that night, so any recommendations or help with that will be good. My wife already said she's not going to cook - she is looking after the baby . She want to try out the Melbourne options .

Based on location and your limited time after breakfast before heading off to the airport, i would suggest Pacific House (http://goo.gl/BQ7h1). There are 3 of them around melbourne.

Okay, slight change of plan. Rockpool booked out on Thursday, so it is going to be the Atlantic 6:30pm Thursday night, and Rockpool Friday night at 8:30pm.

Best in town I know if is in the SE suburbs, may be a bit too far from the airport!

Have you guys submitted your indemnity forms? I dont get it how it says we need to send it in at least 5 days prior, but then it needs to be witnessed on the day?

SE suburbs are fine. I will just go in the morning. Besides it's CNY eve, do I need to preorder?

Good point lol.

I usually go Rock Kung for all my "Burn ends" Ocean king and hills are good too, but I've found Hills' standard isn't as good as it used to be. I don't think you'll need to preorder though Steve.

Have you paid? I got my e-mail after payment. Otherwise it may be a good idea to give Kirsten a call.

Address? All the siu yuk in Brisbane is usually gone by lunch time whenever there is a festival. Glad I don't have to worry about that in Mel.

I am pretty sure Kirsten is just working down a list. I guess more like working up a list as I believe your surname starts with A - I am pretty sure she will get to you in due course.
