    Mark can you let us know when you are open so we can plan a get together, maybe Saturday the 1st March?

    Not sure if I can make it out there on a Saturday morning due to transport issues, but will do my best.

    Banana sandwiches or banana sundae at Marks caf?
    ;)

    Looks like 7 CSrs are going to grab their beans from The Coffee Barun, a good size for a social get together if someone picks a date/time.

    :)

    I guess the 1st would be good if the beans get here in time.

    Time? Anybody?

    Open to suggestions.

    Hmm, TCB is about 10 minutes from my work an about an hour from my home! So Sat isnt really a good time for me... I guess we dont have to all be there together though its always nice of course. 1-2 any weekday would be perfect for me, depending when they arrive.

    I have the opposite problem Greg. ;)
    They are 5-10 mins walk from home but a bus ride in and out of CBD at lunch times.

    Well in that case... let me know if you have a 5-10 minute walk to your bus stop on Main North Rd and could pick mine up for me and bring them to the CBD! Its not exactly easy getting out during lunch anyway as Im in the CBD too but its a lot easier than a long haul from the far south!

    Id love to meet up with some other CSers, but mid-days are out! I live in the south and work in the north!! so the most convenient time for me is late on a weekday (close to 6). Although its a drive on a Saturday its possible.
    Greg
    ps--I didnt order any beans this time, Im still experimenting with my sample bag. Id love to taste some good home roasts before deciding to commit more time and money to this hobby/addiction.

    Sorry Greg, I live close to Prospect Rd and catch the bus from there.
    I could pick your beans up on Sat if they arrive in time and the drop them off to you next week.

    Hazbean ordered mine for me this month as I was at a meeting Wednesday, so I will have to sort out with him and Mrs Hazbean pick up for me.

    I have to drive up Main north road Friday, so I could pick up Gregs and Hazbeans (since we work in the same place :o) and yours too Lucinda. I can drop them off en-route to the Hazbeans... Let me know!

    But thatd mean I would be the only one of us to enjoy a coffee :(

    Of course, that depends on the beans arriving by my Friday appointment!

    Thanks KJM, that sounds fine.

    Well be away Saturday, expect to be returning via Main
    North Road and will definitely try to call in to TCB for
    a coffee (Mark does pull an excellent shot); if by any
    chance the beans are still there, will pick them all up.

    DONE!

    If theyre there - Ill get em all and drop them off Friday arvo. If not, itll be next week I guess. No problem for me to shoot off at lunch time and pick em up. (And I can carry 4 passengers ;) and about 1,000kg of beans. But lets not get carried away!).

    Speaking for one at least - YUP! And well drink his coffee too.

    Hmmmm - maybe if there were enough of us, we could organise a CSr "Drink the cafe dry" event! Or maybe orientation week activities are getting to me... :-/
