      Hi Mat. Slim chance I may be able to make it later on. If so, I'll text you later to see if you're still out. Cheers for now

    This sounds good a feed and a drink, CBD works for me, the Cookie on Swanston is a nice bar and easy to get to but I don't mind, just pick one. Roy don't forget to announce it to the group so everyone sees it's actually on!!

      Hi Roy, no worries, i thought you must have been on the organizers team, if yr not you cant announce it. Sunday may work. I might contact Clare its to hard to organize this stuff without access to all the functions.

      May 8, 2014

    • Roy

      I'm def up for something on Sunday. Let me know, cheers

      May 8, 2014

    A former member changed the location to Cookie Bar

    May 8, 2014

  • Danny L.

    Have we confirmed the location yet?

    May 8, 2014

  • Roy

    I hate to do this but a personal issue has come up and I can't make tomorrow night. Mat, I think you were the only one who confirmed so apologies for bailing last minute. I've left date/time as is for now, but let me know when you want to reschedule – we definitely have to make this happen. Could do anytime this Sunday – I'm guessing most of us dad's will NOT be having the kids on Mother's Day :)
    Cheers all

    hey i would love to be a fly on the wall and hear what goes on during the man date. lol

      If we ever get one organised I'll record it for you :0)

      May 6, 2014

    • Christie

      thanks. I'm single now need to know all i can about your species to have any chance of catching one of you lol

      May 6, 2014

  • Roy changed the date and time to Friday, May 09, 2014 at 6:30 PM

    May 6, 2014

  • Roy

    Ok guys, to start the ball rolling I'm suggesting this Friday 9th at 6.30pm – am clicking the wee blue "Set Date" button now so assuming that'll work!

    Dad's only (no kids) so we can relax and have a few beers. I know this won't work for some but we gotta start somewhere!

    Have left location open and am totally open to suggestions/recommendations. I'm guessing we're all over the place, so CBD may universally be the most convenient location. Thoughts? Maybe the James Squire Brewhouse on Russell Street? Elephant and W/B on Bourke st also has a good range of beer and food

    Happy to alter location and date/time based on interest. So no excuses, we now have a (tentative) date set for our inaugural Man-Date!!! Surely we can hit at least 6?

    Yes I must say this attempt at a meet up is a little lamentable and the fact that the women are commenting more frequently is well....so who can set/access the met up details? Let's fix a date and not just one.

    I can't make the weekend as I will be away. Enjoy if you get together.

    April 22, 2014

  • Roy

    I have the boys with me this weekend so could do a family thing but def. can't make a "Dads only" get together if that's the plan. FYI I'm located north of St Kilda

  • LAURIE

    Gday gents good to see so many fathers who are willing to participate in some good wholesome fellowship. This friday i cant do it at my house as something has come up. However i am to meet up on the saturday during day or evening. Whats your thoughts gents.

    April 20, 2014

  • Roy

    Hi guys, totally new to group but REALLY like the idea of something set up on a regular monthly/every-other month basis. - Single dads only – simply a good casual pub or member house
    - Single dads and kids (incl just dads if you don't have the kids) either at good bbq/playground, eg. Middle Park Adventure Playground / Caulfield Park. Good ref site is:
    http://www.playgroundfinder.com/searchresults.php?advancedSearch=false&location=melbourne++3004
    Alt. for Dads and kids: someone's place - sorry my appts too small for adults and kids

    Obviously we'll each make events based on our time with the kids, but if we can try and get a regular date set up, eg. second Friday of each month, then we know it's coming and can plan ahead

    Either way, let's pls keep the chat going to get some regular events set up for the dads. As a relatively new single dad, I'm still keen to mix with the girls, but it'd be great to have some times to chat with other guys in similar situation
    Thoughts/options?!?!

  • LAURIE

    Hi mat i am out near highpoint shopping centre. I dont mind either with kids or without. Keep it simple perhaps we could have a bbq at my place. Really the focus is conversation and sharing of experiences. A bit of solidatry.

    How far west Laurie? I guess with or with out kids it depends if we all sync on a weekend. I'm east so with out kids maybe easier and we can meet in the city on a sat arvo or such. This is my week with my daughter so with kids I guess we need an activity or place to go during the day? Comments....

    This sounds like a good idea. Everyone else I know is still Married and has a different life dynamic. Good to share perspective with similar Dads. . . If we can can find a convenient date of course!!
