Due to the fact that only three people have indicated they will be having dinner with us I think it would be a better idea to scrap the whole dinner thing. We will be doing a City set down at 1740 before driving to Dickson for dinner. Please note the City will be the only halfway point set down.

As for the rest of the tour it will be done by on an 'On request' basis. If you want a location for night or day shots let us know, either on the board or on the day and we will try to include it.

Would the terminus used by ACTION Buses out at Hall be a good location?

BTW Zac, the hospice is terrible for night photos, me and todd took photos of 990 down there one night with chris and even with a tripod there is very little light, i would propose dusk for that location as it is a nice spot but just at night time it is way too hard to get a decent photo

Just to let everyone know, don't be surprised if the bus is a few minutes late by the time we get to Woden/Tuggeranong as there isn't much time. Also the timings listed above are when we will  be leaving, if you are not there on time, you will get left behind!

At this time I also wish to ask all attending members to remember to respect the bus and keep it clean and most importantly help out the older RATEC members if they need help getting on and off the bus, this help would be greatly appreciated by us.

Don't forget to have your money on you when you board, we will not take free loaders!
