XXXX AFP Mega-meet!!!!
Sat 5 Dec in Canberra, city of roundabouts.
Without a 1000 Elephants![1]

Yes, the XXXX AFP meet is happening. Here is the schedule:

7pm, Phu Pho Quoc Restaurant, Cape St Dickson: Dinner. The restaurant
is BYO, and there is a bottle shop next door to it. They do a banquet
for about $15, and can also cater for vegies.

Directions: If you are arriving by car from anywhere except Cooma or
the NSW south coast, you will arrive at the corner of Northbourne Ave
& Barton Hway. (see map) Drive down Northbourne, turn left at the next
set of lights (Antill St), then first right (Challis St), then first
left (Cape St).

The map is not to scale, and lots of streets haven't been drawn in,
but it's not too hard to find.

After dinner, there is a bar just up the road.

Sat night: There will be some crash space available on my floor, as
long as my housemates don't object very much when I ask them. I don't
think they'll mind. Bring your own sleeping bag or whatever if you
want to use this option. If there's not enough space, or you don't
like floors, there is a whole street of Bed & Breakfasts marked on the
map. There is also a YHA, caravan park, and more expensive hotels all
close to Dickson.

Sun: Will be worked out on Sat night.

The bus station is about 1.5k down the road from the restaurant, the
airport is about 10-15k away. I might be able to pick people up from
either of these if they ask really nicely, and if I haven't sold my
car by then.

If you are coming[2] please send email to me so I know how many to
book for and so I know if my floor is big enough.

[3] This means the only circus we get to see is the one in parliament
