I am organising a picnic in the botanical gardens from 5.30pm onwards for new year's eve :)
Exact location to be found thanks to pictures on this facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/events/456786977758919/?ref_dashboard_filter=calendar
My main interest is to meet great Ccsers like you, eat some nice picnic food (well crisps, or anything that I and you will bring!), drink some lovely soft drinks (alcohol free zone), and feel part of this amazing event as we watch the great fireworks together.
Plan of the night:
Eat, relax, play silly maybe childish but oh so fun games (I am a teacher, if you like games come along), play cards, play ball, play play play - if anyone has music and speakers, bring it :)
Bring yourself + blankets + food + drinks + games, well you get the picture :) oh and A PEN :) Last year Ccsers all had mucho fun, and I hope to reproduce that.
I have found us a good spot near the shrine of remembrance where it will be a good view point to watch the fireworks :) and not as busy as in the CBD as I am told. Those will happen at 9, then at midnight. The spot is near the Kings Domain, where there'll be entertainment, such as music etc, so you can wander around a bit there.
Finally, look for the "I love Melbourne" cap, and I will even make a sign (Jess, we need a sign!)
Hope to see you there :) to go from 2013 to 2014 (when I hope to stop losing stuff, and getting holes in my clothes!)
