Canberra Coffee & Chat with Land Rovers: 25 August
« on: July 28, 2019, 02:09:29 PM »
Some Canberra Ex-Mil Landy owners are getting together for a chit chat and coffee, its a local social.

Sunday 25th August
10.30 am

Its near the beach, on the southern shores of Yarralumla, at the McKay Aquatic Ctr carpark.

Note: marked spaces for 32 vehicles only - so please respond early - get in quick. Do not miss out on a spot. :)

Which day is the question. Saturday 24 or Sunday 25? Which suits more people? Lets sort out the best day for it.

All Ex-Mil Land Rovers and other mil veh welcome.

Public toilets on loc. BBQ and picnic tables if you want to eat. Coffee or Tea DIY.
Dogs and cats on a leash is okay. Kids too. (remember to bring pooperscooper).

All weather event. If it rains we still go ahead.

Loc Safety Alerts:
Evacuation Assembly Point will be the carpark. Swim between the flags - be advised you may need a wetsuit. The beach is not patrolled. Check the flags to be sure there are no rips or undertows on the day. If you want to bring your rod to fish be aware the Carp bag limit is one (1) tonne and overloaded trailer penalties may apply :)

Hope to see you there.

Additional idea - trying out flat tyre gear, practice changing tyres. I have a trailer tyre with a dead Olympic Steel trek to remove. New beadbreaker, tyre levers and some lube from a tyre shop.


Attending so far:

Stevie FFR
Greg FFR

So far the attendees listed above have said that (for variety of reasons) Sunday 25th is the better option for the get-together.

From Perentie FB Groups -

Craig B (me)
Steven C
Bodge S
Lachie K
Doug W
Stephen D

However, being Facebook, halve that number then multiply THAT by 0.112 for an accurate estimate of who MAY actually turn up on the day.  ;-)

Debating whether I should bring my British Army Ferret petrol stove for some proper car park coffee-making or just stick with a hexy stove and some ratpack instant coffee to overcompensate for the myriad aeropresses, plungers and 12v espresso machines sure to be in attendance. Decisions, decisions...

Weekend is nearly here, and the forecast for Sunday is alright too. Cheets.
