Sounds good.  I might be able to get us some lunch up at Hotham at the pub too. I'll get back to you.

OK John, let's work on a 9.30am hook up in Lilydale out front of the Bunning's I think it is. Place on the left in the service road.
No worries Dale see you at Euroa.
Act guys we will have to catch up maybe at the big brewery near the Water slide into the Oven River. Good place for a beer around 3 on Friday maybe?
Oh and bring your togs. It might be well into the 30's and I found an awesome water hole for jumping 5-10 meters off a rock into massive deep river. Great fun. :D

Yeah I am a bit confused on what we are doing on which day.  So Friday is the brewery thing which I won't be able to make on time.  Then I was thinking Hotham on Saturday or Sunday for lunch?

Good morning Gents, I will call Bright info this morning and see if the road to Falls Creek is open as an option to replace the Hotham drive. Given the hot weather I think the BBQ at Buffalo might be a Subway sandwich affair as fires might be a problem. Stay tuned and I will update here soon.  ;)

Hi Craig,
I have been discussing this with Pauly. I am not in the position to get Fri & Mon off unfortunately but will attempt to get to Bright for one day over the weekend. As discussed with Pauly we will probably do this on Sat. It is greatly appreciated if you can continue to post what you are all likely to be doing on each day, so we know where to catch up with you all.
Looking forward to meeting everyone then.
Regards
Peter

OK guys I just called the info people and got some good news. The road from bright is open all the way to Mt Beauty and on up to Falls Creek. We will do Falls Creek drive on the Saturday and Mt Buffalo the Sunday. Mt Buffalo does have electric BBQ's up there so the barby is still a go ahead. I recommend we buy some meat and bread and have a lazy lunch up there. Falls Creek will have a cafe open for us as well. I am thinking either way early starts could be the go to miss the heat then in the arvo we swim or stay cool somewhere unless those are still keen to keep driving in the sauna we call a Zed.
So I am confirming everyone seems good to go.
For those arriving Friday arvo when it is meant to be real hot. I might take you all for a drive to this local water hole for a swim. It is awesome.

Peter and Pauly maybe we can meet you guys up at Falls Creek for lunch........by the time you guys get there?
I also made Mt Buffalo on the Sunday because it is less of a drive and for those wanting to leave on the Sunday it will make life easier by heading off after the BBQ lunch up there.

      Anyone wanting the option to come up through Gippsland would be to Bairnsdale to Omeo then the Omeo highway out past the Blue Duck at Anglers Rest then the Buckety High plains Rd over the Rocky Valley Dam to Falls Creek.Then down through the Bogong Village to Mount Beauty, then over the Towonga Gap to Bright.

          You wont get a better drive in a Zed...Hope that helps
