Hi all,

There are a few members from Western Australia on here that all seem keen to meet up, so I figure I could get the ball rolling (towards a nice cafe somewhere :-) ).

Everyone is spread out, so I think the best way maybe is to start of with listing days, times and location that would suit you? From there we should be able to plan it.

For myself, I can do Thursdays, Saturday or Sunday, from 10ish onwards, and as I live in Stoneville, probably most suited between Midland to City (but have a car and will travel :-) ).

Good idea! I'd be keen to meet up. Saturday and Sundays are my only days as I work full time. City would be good for me too but I live relatively central so not too fussed where we go

I think city, like Perth city area is a good idea because it seems most central and easy to get to for everyone to get to like I am expecting others that want to meet up might live scattered everywhere. I think wait to are until we hopefully have more replies but otherwise Perth centre ish :)

Some of us have been talking about a coffee on the 29th September morning no time set yet but what about 9.30am at Subiaco?

Okay, Plan A - Part 1:

Saturday 29th September - Subiaco (Cafe setup - I need my coffee :-)) - 10am or later (allowing for travel time)

If anyone needs a lift, let me know (I have a 'soccer bus' so can pick a few of you up).

Hi Desley,

That would be the real difficult question - which cafe?? I have no idea what is in Subi, open to suggestions :_)

Desleywr

Ok there is a dome but they are noisy. There is a little one that I go to when I get my art let me hop on my google maps and find out the name. I will get back to you soon. Ok have had a look through satellite and the cafe is at the 91 Rockerby road Subiaco. Forrest walk has a cafe it is in aside lane with Rockerby road one side and a large car park in the back street which is parralel with Rockerby...Rowland ST is the name of the parallel street with the cafe in Forest walk.
The shop in Rockerby Road on the corner of the lane is Jacksons Drawing Supplies. 10am 29th sept Thursday. Does this suit others? Let's exchange mobile numbers in case someone cant find the place through private mail!

Sounds great guys, I would love to meet up. There is ticket parking behind Dome, and at times it is hard to get a parking spot. You just have to make sure you get there a bit earlier just in case you need to find parking somewhere else.

YollyDolly you might want to take your phone number off your post, as many people view this site, and you don't want your phone to ring all the time. I wouldn't take the risk. We can private message phone numbers closer to the meet up.

The forest walk cafe has a large car park that I always find a park in so have a look at a map and you will see the streets are listed in previous response.

Are we still going to meet up next week? I may have to get my daughter to drop me off as I think it will be too far for me to drive, and I probaly will be too tired to drive home again. Also she can just drop me off and pick me up at the door so I don't have to walk too far.

Desleywr
09-21-2011, 04:18 AM
Yes there is no road at the entrance as it is in a lane between streets but the back street is mainly a car park it would be 20 - 30 Mtrs from either street I am in Qld now buti will see you there. I am looking forward to meeting you.

09-21-2011, 04:26 AM
Hi Debs but on my cal the 29th September is a Thursday..... I just noticed your post so let's get this sorted is the meet up at the cafe I suggested? And is the meeting time 10 am? And is the date the 29 th Thursday or Sat the 31st? Desley

debstar
09-21-2011, 05:28 AM
Hi everyone,

1. I am a ditz! We now have potentially 2 meet ups - I can do both if it doesn't work out for some?

2. 10am sounds good, although I may be heading a bit closer to 10.30am by the time I get in there (coming from the Hills and picking up Yol on the way)

3. I am more than happy to pick up people along the way (and even drop you off :-)) Anywhere from Stoneville, via Midland/Guildford, thru Bayswater and surrounds and into Subi. Got an 8 seater, so no probs for space.

4. I am really looking forward to meeting you all!

Yay can't wait and yes i think Saturday is the plan! :-) As i know a few people from the FB group that may be able to come but only on the weekend.
Are we meeting at the DOME cafe though or the Forrest Walk Cafe so I can tell the people on FB?

See you all soon!

There seems a lot of confusion here. I started asking if people would like to meet in the location forum and then it was transferred over here with Debs suggestion. When the time, place and location is sorted I am happy to attend. On the other forum I suggested thur 29 Sept and since then Subiaco has been suggested two locations were suggested Dome, and the Forest Lane cafe, now it appears that it is Sat 31st sept. I am happy any place any time any date but I can not attend weekends. So when this gets sorted I am very happy to attend just let me know when and where. I am really looking forward to meeting you all.

FINAL - CONFUCIUS SAYS:

Thursday 29th September

10-10.30am onwards

Forest Lane Cafe - Subiaco

**Thanks Nat for the reminder that the Footy Finals are on Saturday! Totally slipt my mind, so I think we'll need to give this Saturday a miss and save that for the next meet up.

**** Anyone that needs/wants a lift, let me know :-)

Cheers!

All sounds great! I don't think we need to book we can have either in side or out the sun may be too much outside but either is great! First person may want to just sit at a table for Bout six is that enough? Often has plenty of space. I will see you then I should be there a bit before 10 see you all when you get thre.

Hi Desley,

I tried to Google the cafe and can't find anything? I am sure I'll figure it out though. Really looking forward to seeing everyone!

As for numbers - I don't have a clue how many, so far we have myself, Yol, Desley & Linda as defs. I am sure we can round up more chairs as we need them :_)

See you all soon.

Jacksons Drawing is on Rockerby Road which is on the corner of the lane. I looked it up on the map app of my iPod. I have lunch their often very nice food and quiet generally. The good thing is the car park in the end of the lane which runs parallel to Rockerby Road very handy for parking, always find a spot. See you then ohh how will we know each other ahhh I have a pine coloured walking stick and I am blond.

Great meeting all shame it was only those few hrs as we all had a lot more to say but I think many had their energy levels dropping? See you all soon.

Fun, Fun, Fun, always nice to go out with friends, especially since I have been stuck at home for the last few months. I really wished my energy levels were not so low, but hopefully by the time we meet up again my energy levels are much higher.

Hi there!
I'm Gabi and I've been lurking on this site for a while now, but after seeing this post I thought I would join in!
I too am in Perth and it would be so great to meet up with people who are going through the same thing.
I was diagnosed at the beginning of the year with Lupus (SLE) and Fibromyalgia and find that many people around me don't really understand much.
So if you are definitely planning another meet up I would LOVE to come. I will keep checking this thread!

Desleywr
10-18-2011, 04:35 PM
Send Steve Bryce a pm as he is organizing the next meet nice to meet you I may be there as my husband has a dentist appointment so it depends on how he feels and how long it takes. You might like to look up on the internet the "spoon Theory" I found it wonderful and I use it to explain to interested friends when asked what is it like living with Lupus. Hope to see you. Desley

Next meet for Sandgropers. I have spoken with Steve as he started with the date. I have a suggestion for the venue.
Fleeting thought! We love to go to the Newbliss Winery on the Williams Pinjarra Road from Pinjarra up to Dwellingup before getting to Dwellingup the turn off to Newbliss is on the left hand side. What do you think about that as a venue? It overlooks a beautiful valley and down to the Peel inlet. Good food for lunch a sticky date to die for and all very reasonable price. I will start a new thread so please post your response on that thread not this one.
