The messiah returns... :p ;)

Ok lets get this discussion into one thread rather than spread out across four like it is now.

I'm up in Auckland next weekend, i'd like to meet up with all you guys for a drink or something on Saturday (11th Feb). I'm thinking a few hours Saturday mid/late afternoon or early evening, as I have plans to go out in town sat nt, and i'm pretty busy the rest of the time. The two options for location seem to be Scott's place (thanks for the offer) or in town - either my hotel or a bar nearby (i'm staying in Quest Hotel on Queen St). My knowledge of Auckland consists of driving towards the sky tower or follwing the little plane signs to the airport, but i'll probably have a lass along who knows the city quite well.

Thoughts? Suggestions? Availability?

I suspect i'll be in Auckland more regularly for a little while.

Where does Scott live? Im sure its closer to me than town. I vote for his place.
Its easy to get out this way.
You take the little plane sign exit from town, but instead of going to the right under the motorway, you keep left and go thatway.

I think I'd like first dibs on this monitor calib gizmo - Im about to spend half a grand on couple of big prints, imagine if the colour was off! :S

$250 each for those prints? That's gota eat into your profit margin!

I don't really mind if we go to Scott's or go into town, if it's at Scotts i'll probably just arrive a little earlier and leave a little earlier so I get into town at the right time :) Pretty much anywhere you go in Auckland involves a pretty long drive I figure...

I can walk to Scott's house (I think...) or I can take 3-4 people into town if they don't mind squeezing into the car... whichever suits.

Now, do we take a plate each, drinks and stuff? Sorry, I'm still trying to figure out the Kiwi thing to do... it just changes so much from house to house, and from time to time ;-)a

If it's at Scotts house i'll not be drinking because i'm driving... which isn't a problem... i'll have a "few" drink later that evening...

Since it's a short thing i'd probably say bring what you want to drink, and snacks if you want any. Up to Scott really. I think Scott said he had a pool so bring something to swim in if you like.

Fair Q, what do we bring?
I know BYOC is a given, but that only feeds the creative sides, not stomachs or bladders.
Perhaps we're all big enough to look after our needs, eh ;)

DId any of you see that flap with someone posting one of CharlesU's pics on DPReview? https://photography-on-the.net …=132849&highlig​ht=Charles

The culprit apparently is local... but an ex-POTN member... Wazza, MattL and I managed to put our 2cents worth in it... and sent our apologies to CharlesU... Moppie, Scott, the guy lives a few minutes from us...

EDIT: OOPS, why is it that I'm always 12 hours late... or something.... must be having to do with being married and with kids...

Yep, it will be good to meet you considering that we're neighbours!

Just say when... I still have a week of baby sitting before the kids are back in school.

Cheers!

I kinda figured that I'd miss stuff like this when I got married and had kids... not that I'm complaining ;-)a There are perks and then there are perks...

Have fun, keep safe and bring back some pics.

Cheers!
