    I am very conscious of some members driving a very long distance to get to the mini, but what are the chances of a 8:00 kick off? there is Sooooo much to fill in on the day.

    Re: Australian Sydney Mini Interest 2011

    i'm in for a 8:30 start - Dave (Lytnin) and I will open up and start arranging from 8:00. I am trying to twist a younger Kool-Lites to come along and cook Bacon and Egg for us as we kick off.

    Cheers
    Matt

    Breafast for the early birds is now confirmed.. Younger Kool-lite said he would love to do. Ya never know, maybe I can get him interested in Blinky Flashy too.

    FastEddy, that makes me +1 for your numbers.

    Guys and Gals
    The agenda is firming up:
    Please try and arrive by 8:30 for a 8:40 start.

    You will notice the after noon has coffee and "break out groups". The idea behind this is to allow some of the local Subject Matter Experts to give a little one-on-one assistance on specific areas. JBP has offered to demo CAT 5 terminations, one of those often over looked tasks that can make or break your display. I will be demoing SMD soldering, Fasteddy may get his PIC programmer out.

    What is needed is someone to put their hand up to complete the Vixen slot. Any takers?
    Edit - Agenda updated
