Morning Meet Up
We will meet up at 10:00 AM at Propeller Coffee at 50 Wade Ave.

We will look at the map and decide the route we will follow to visit as many of the breweries we can during the day. I have the times that they open so we can plan our route around these times.

There will be time between the breweries to allow for photos to be taken.

Lunch: Some breweries have food and we will have lunch at one of them.

After Walk Pub: We will see where we are on the map and decide on a final stop for the day.

Grange Park Picnic, August 5th

Friday, August 4th, 2017

Vicki has organised an evening event:

Meet at 6:30pm – Grange Park (just behind the AGO)

Photography/Music/Play

Things to bring: blanket, folding chair, park games (frisbee or such), your own picnic dinner, musical instruments, cameras.

Musical jams and taking photos in and around the fabulous newly opened park, sit and eat. Later, when all the little kiddies go home, the larger, very interesting play equipment will be open for teens and adults to play on and get pics. Grange has put in amazing lighting, so it is great for night shots.

Could head to a pub later.
