    Talking Pentax Gathering Schedule

    Guys
    Issit possible to have an annual monthly schedule and a fixed date for our major outing, like the first sun/sat of the month?

    for example, for the rest of the year

    Aug - tiong bahru conservation pre-war housing estate
    Sep - punggol seaside
    Oct - china town
    Nov - vivo city
    Dec - orchard road

    any in-between outing can be arranged separately. all comment and support are welcome!!

    This is an excellent suggestion. We can always alternate Saturdays / Sundays in cases where there's work on Saturday and there's Church on Sundays ...

    Should we also consider Changi Broadwalk, or Ubin's chek jawa? Or even Esplanade? Just to complete the suggestions...

    Since we've already started discussing mid Aug, perhaps we should nail down September start or Aug End as the start of a regular meetup. The good thing about regular meet ups is that we can secure time off from our family (without incurring the wrath of your female partner, parents, etc).

    I suggest we start with 30 August 08, 28 September 08, 26 October 08, 30 November 08 (DEC break as there's just too many things to catch up during holiday season).

    Thoughts?

    hrm, i think the area nearer to changi v is better for sunrise views. the side of the boardwalk near changi beach club is in the wrong direction.

    i should be able to join, but something's nagging at me regarding 30 aug. HRMPH.

    30th aug i also cannot commit, why not next weekend, though i noe its abit hasty for some and it also clashes with the singapore fireworks festival. Anyway lets see how it goes...

    How crowded are such events now? Took a bunch of schoolkids there once, years ago, and it was heck. Hot and swamped.

    Given that there are several events coming up at the end of the month, next week (23 August) would be good as our outing will not compete and clash with other events.

    Revised:

    Date: Saturday, 23 August 2008
    Time: 7.30am onwards
    Venue: Changi Broadwalk
    Subject: Sunrise/sea views
