I arrived at the Curio West Hotel at 9:30 and was told they would call me when a room was available which would probably be within a couple of hours. Literally sat down and pulled out my laptop to reply to a few emails and they came over with my room card. Scored an upgrade from base Acacia Room to 7th floor King Waratah Room.

Definately a nice hotel but rooms are on the small side. Service was great though!

Small changes to both pre-dinner drinks!

For tonight, we are at The Clock on 1st floor in Pendulum Lounge from 6pm.
You can buy drinks at the $5.00 happy hour from 5-7 in the downstairs Street Bar, and bring them up. The Pendulum has cocktail happy hour for $14.

For Hyatt on Saturday from 6pm for pre dinner drinks hosted by World of Hyatt, we will be up on the rooftop Zephyr Bar in a sectioned off area.
labeled for us.

See you all then!

If you decide to come to the Turkish banquet, ticket sales ended on Wednesday, so you can pay me direct.

penegal’s real status for all FT & AFF do’s:- Copper - I won't know until the last minute as work may get in the way or I may have to fly to SIN or somewhere else for one reason or another or I just can't make up my mind. He will show up some time!

I've now ended up as a late scratching from all the events. I'd say I am doing a @penegal but I am quasi-reliably informed he is attending.

Have a work thing tonight that I can't miss. Still around in Sydney all weekend, so if anyone is staying in The Rocks, I might just see you!

Hope the weather holds up and everyone enjoys yet another OzFest
