Announcing a new Meetup for The Melbourne Sci-Fi & Fantasy Meetup Group!What
: The Enterprize - Sunset cruise to end the year :)When
: Saturday, December 18, 2010 5:00 PMWhere
: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
Call me a big romantic softie, but I reckon sailing off into the sunset is the perfect way to end the year's activities :)
Costume is certainly not required... but sailing ship.... saying "Argh!" repeatedly is kinda a given :)
Cost is $40 for an adult, $30 for concession, and we need to book in advance - preferably a couple of weeks, so November Monthly meetup (27th) will be the effective cut-off if you'd like to come.
Actual cruise is at 6pm, so I figure 5pm meet at Melbourne Central (precise location TBD), then we catch a train there...
If you haven't heard of it, the Enterprize is the ship that first settled Melbourne (owned at the time my great-great-great-sort-of-grandfather :). This ship is a replica and I've always wanted to go for a cruise on it... since it's vaguely sci-fi related (obviously! BYO Tribbles), and an old standard of many fantasy novels (Greldik's ship in the Belgariad occurs to me :), thought it might be an idea for an event.
I'd go for a 1 hour voyage from Williamstown at some time that suits us...
