BRETTI get together 17th to the 21st of September

Just wondering if anyone would like to get away for a camp up at Bretti from 17th to the 21st of September ?
I am trying to get some time off and would like some company up there.

Sounds great Geoffro. Will check in with the minister for home affairs but she may also like to come for a break.

Hi
I am coming up to Bretti for the second time. Last time just as the bush fires started. Not good....

At what time do you expect to arrive so I know where to look for someone.

My LX200 GPS Scope is finally working properly after my Son Benjamin helped me sort out an issue with communications between scope and PC. It needed an update in the software as there was a GPS problem after its repair by SKYWATCHER AUSTRALIA.

All looks good now and ready to continue "grinding coffee" as some have mentioned before....

Hi Geoff
I am now going up on the 15th now.
Do you camp and set up under the trees or out in the middle just so I have an idea

Chris, speaking historically, the usual spot was down the back (the eastern boundary), just inside the back fence, between the junction of the two small rivers on the left (and the picnic table) and the farmers gate on the right. This provides a grassed area, clear overhead views, is not usually favoured by caravaners who seek shade under the trees, and has minimal through traffic as its past the end of the track. I have attached a few photos which I took at one of the past trips. You can clearly see Geoff's red van in the first photo, with Al wandering arounding in the hat.
Note I am assuming that is still the favoured spot. Geoff will advise.
Wish I could go.

We will be going up on the Friday at this stage so save me a space for my caravan.
Sorry you can't go Glen. Would be nice to have more starters.
