    Recommended Posts

    Guest Martin and Val

    Hi All,

    We are going to Adelaide during Jan/Feb for a holiday and recci and wondered if anybody would be interested in a meet when we get there?

    We have set a date with Mark and Tina as they will be living there by then :notworthy: so that makes four of so far.

    We have picked The bar of `The Mercure Grosvenor Hotel' located at 125 North Terrace opposite the popular Adelaide Casino at 7pm Friday 1st Feb, who's up for it?

     

    Hope to see as many people as possible, cheers

     

    Martin and Val ;)

    sounds great guys, but sorry we can't make it as we are hampered by kids!!!! hahaha!

     

    We can only do daytime meets in child-friendly places, but if you are heading out of the city and down this way - Port Noarlunga - perhaps towards the beach, then let us know.

     

    All the best

    Hi Martin and Val,

     

    Always up for a night out in the city, and from around 11:30 the football will be on in the casino, which is always a bonus.

     

    Cheers

    Can I safely assume that when you refer to football you mean proper football (aka soccer) and not this aussie rules junk?

     

    I'd come if we were there...enjoy!

    Hi Lisa,

    Time permitting we will get down your way, but we have so much to do and not much time to do it.

    Cheers

    I will personal message our Aus Mob Number soon so we can get hold of each other nearer the time.

    Looking forward to it, I will stick a sign on the table so we can spot each other!!

    Cheers and happy new year.

    Hi Denise,

    I would say the football is optional!

    Hope to meet as many Pom's as possible.

    Hi All,

    We PM'ed our mobile number to those that are coming, thanks for the replies. I wont put peoples numbers on here but if you want to contact each other by PM, those that are coming are:

    Rob and Clare, BJF, Donna, Denise42, Tina and us (12 so far)

    BJF, (Di): Has pointed out that an Australian Flag on the table may not be a good idea as it's not long after Australia Day and the place will probably be full of them. I have a Union Jack so I will bring that and stick it on the table or as Di says just look for the most excitable lot!

    What's on the agenda? Shall we say, just meet for drinks and see what happens? (Does anybody want to eat to, we don't mind?)

     

    Cheers

    Martin and Val

    PS: Must run we have our medicals today!

    I just spoke to Martin on the phone and he asked to to post (he's having trouble with a 'hit n' miss' connection at the hotel.

     

    Tonight's (February 1st) details, Meet at....

    Federal Bar of the Mercure Grosvenor Hotel,

    125 North Terrace,

    Adelaide at 7pm

    There'll be a Union Flag on the table so you'll know which party to join.

    Someone had to make a decision about eating or not so we opted for NOT, you'll need to eat first or starve. See everyone tonight, lets show the aussie's how to party and have a good time. :jiggy:We don't know of a strict dress code so presumably jeans are ok, at least I hope so as it's what I'll have on.

    Hi,

    We are now fast approaching the end of our recci in Adelaide and are not looking forward to the flights home on Friday.

    Before we go we would both like to thank those who attended the meet at the Mercure Grosvenor on Friday 1st, we had a great night although must admit that by the end of the it, I (Martin) could hardly keep my eyes open. Was it the drink or was I still not fully adjusted to the time change!

    Anyway thank you again and hope to see you all later in the year.

    All the best

    Martin and Val:jiggy:
