anyone up for an early dinner in the city on saturday night ?

That sounds like a good idea, Uni.  If I can make it (and I'll try my best) I would prefer "cheap and cheerful" because I'll probably stay on at work all day, but I should imagine you would love to go to somewhere like the Press Club, and I can't blame you for that, I would love to get there sometime myself - I'll keep an eye on this thread and see how it goes; whatever everyone else decides, if I can make it, I will try my best.

Although Macedon has it's own micro-climate and may be different, the long range weather forecast for the next week is rain everyday ... except Sunday!  Perfect!!

Fingers crossed Marina, we're in for some rain too and I hope that comes and goes before CC and I get back from Chookies.

Notes for Sunday.  
THe Adelaide contingent will probably arrive at Cherokee between 9.30 and 10 am.  Capably escorted by Marina.  Breakfast/ morning tea will be available from then on.   Anyone else who wishes to arrive from this time on,  most welcome.  
Lunch will start about 12.30.  Lucky dip between main and sweets.
Drive carefully on the country roads as they  are wet and there may be wombats and kangaroos.
I will attach balloons to tree at start of drive.
Please remember a small gift for the lucky dip.
If anyone gets lost,  phone reception,  once on the side of Mt. Macedon,  is patchy.  
When you arrive, come up the drive, past  the front of house , and around the back.  Plenty of parking.  To leave,  you just keep driving forward.
Any questions???
Looking forward to Sunday and our house guests.  
OOPS,  forgot,  don't forget to bring a jar for some SD starter.

Only one question - are you sure you want to do this Chookie  :D

Can't wait for all the hugging that is going to happen in Cherokee, not to mention the great food, lively chatter and meeting people for the first time.  Roll on Sunday.  :-* :-*

Judy,  too late to pull out now.  Not at all worried with so many good cooks coming.  If I have lots of OOPS moments,  I'm sure someone will help.

Roll on Sunday too.
Chookie, I am hoping to leave home at 9am and allowing a comfortable 2hrs. All going well will be ambling down your driveway at 11am. If not there by 12 send out the Boy Scouts (but only good looking ones ;))

Kim,  looking forward to meeting you.  I'll send Ral and Don out to rescue you.  Come earlier if you wish.   ;D

Very exciting Mich, hope you and DH have a great trip.

When I left work today the other girls in the office said have a great time in Melbourne on Sunday. They can't quite get their heads around me flying interstate for a day, to have lunch with a group of friends most of which I've never met.  You have to be part of this forum to understand it I guess!

Can't wait for Sunday. I'm thinking of leaving home at about 9 so by the time I pick up my new friends I think the total time will be around 2 hours so should arrive around 11. Hopefully I won't get lost.

WHOOPPEE. I am  becoming even greener with envy. It all sounds so very exciting. I know you will have the very best time.

Wonder, I am sure you will be OK.  However I have the 'boys' ready to collect any strays.
Katie,  not so strange,  I know of a group of cooks who flew to Hobart for the day,  to do a cooking class.  They also had to hire a car and drive for 45 mins.

Haha - Yes we have our own boy (maybe more mature) scouts to pick you up in style if anyone should become lost.
