Re: Melbourne 2017 end March. Who's going? Dinner Friday nig

Post by MargoZ »

Only one sleep before the show starts!
Here's a summary of Stampboard's related activities starting tomorrow 8)

This large FIAP International show is only a fortnight away running from Thursday March 30, to Sunday April 2 at Caulfield Race Course.

ALL the info you will ever need to know is here - http://melbourne2017.com.au/

There are a great range of souvenir philatelic items for Melbourne 2017 already available. See the Melbourne 2017 thread for details:
http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=71289

As part of the show there will be the following Stampboards activities:

Stampboards corner at the show

Stampboards has kindly been allocated a nice big area by the Committee, and it will be operating with a computer and large screen monitor throughout the show.

We’ll be upstairs in the stamp exhibition space, so do drop by and say hello, enjoy some high calorie nibbles and meet some fellow - Stampboarders. Look for the large yellow posters!

The Stampboards area at Melbourne 2013 was a huge success with dozens of members dropping by and catching up - DO take a look - http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=42101&p=3359125

Stampboards meeting Saturday April 1st, 12 noon to 1pm

Help celebrate 10 years of the board – first started on 1st April 2007 - so that meeting is on the exact 10th Year Anniversary date!

Special Cake with our logo on top, and goodies to thank members for their support over the past decade.

Stampboards dinner Friday 31st 7pm+

Mediterranean Greek Tavern, 511 Glen Huntly Rd, Elsternwick.

Only 7 minutes by car from the Race Course - we will look at car pooling, and there is a tram stop outside too so anyone heading back to city etc has easy access.

Full information [at] http://www.stampboards.com/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=75801

Please post on the thread if you are coming as we need to confirm numbers with the restaurant next week.

Please keep the visuals and show news coming. I had planned to get there but then things went somewhat array with my job a few months back, plus a serious health issue, and that put an end to 6 months of planning that was to have seen F1 combined with my first stamp show :mrgreen:

Keep the news coming folks, Stampboards is my only available window on the show :)

Sorry to say the plane didn't make it. Friday arvo drove from Hervey Bay to the Sunshine Coast Airport in non-stop blinding rain. Got into the airport at 5 pm soaking wet and waited for boarding. Several 100 others doing the same as no planes since 1.00 pm. Finally (about 7.30 pm) we were all told all flights cancelled. Couldn't even get a plane on Friday - Saturday arvo the earliest so plans aborted and drove back to Hervey Bay last night.

Best wishes to everyone there - sorry I missed meeting everyone and also missed the Melbourne 2017 (and my 102 yo mum). Hope you have a great 4 days.

Had planned on coming down tomorrow for the day but have had to look after my girls this weekend as their mother is not well so sadly will not be able to come down, very disappointing as have never been to a big exhibition before and was also looking forward to meeting up with some of the Stampboards gang.

Here is part of our large Birthday dinner gathering last night, and a good time was had by all I think. :)

Thanks to all those who attended.

Endless food - never seen so much. :lol:

Thanks to Traralgon for sourcing a place who could host so many on a Friday night in a private kind of area, remarkably noise free, and to Kevin Morgan for the kind donation of wine, and nightwatchman for the Papermate pens for all attendees. :mrgreen:

Don't forget we have our Birthday meeting, at midday TODAY in meeting room #2, right next to the stampboard stand upstairs. Cake and goodies - so be there!

Ausdavo and Gmoney Sorry that you won't be making it this time.

PeeVee kindly photographed some of the exhibits of Stampboarders - the frames are quite closely arranged and the plastic is shiny so hard to capture but hopefully some will be OK to share online for those who aren't able to attend.

Speaking of exhibitions, here are some more photos from last night.
For anyone wanting a great meal in the Elsternwick area, I'd highly recommend the Mediterranean Greek Tavern.

It was great to meet up with all the stampboarders who I first met in 2013 at Melbourne.

Also enjoyed meeting Monogram and his son over dinner. Fossick told some very good jokes the best of which was about
CRAFT subjects.Thats the acronym C.R.A.F.T. - Can't Remember A Fluffing Thing! :lol: :lol:

We are all aging at the same rate, some gracefully!

Thanks to Glen [at] Margo, Pee Vee and Traralgon for all the organising that goes on behind the scenes.
Plus we all put on a few kilos thanks to Traralgon's never ending chocolate supply.

I kept myself busy making some Nolan covers using the 2003 Australian Paintings stamp of Ned Kelly on a horse
combined with the new issue of Nolan and Streeton. With the postmarks that were used at the show.

To Philexx and Chzug(Peter Z) I did my best with your wants list and will email you when I get home on Monday.
