Melbourne Rebels super rugby match
posted February 11, 2013 3:12 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Fri March 8 at 7:00 PM, Melbourne Rectangular Stadium
100 Olympic Boulevard, Melbourne VIC 3000, Australia (Map & Directions)
Let's catch up for a rugby match this season.
Home games are listed below. I'll be going along to most of them. I know there's a few rugby fans out in mefite land that sometimes go along, so maybe we should make one of them an official meetup? Possibly get a pint before hand as well.

I already have plans for 22 Feb, so I'd propose 15 Feb, 8 Mar or 13 Apr. Let's get out there before the weather turns too crap!

15 Feb Rebels v Force
22 Feb Rebels v Brumbies
8 Mar Rebels v Reds
13 Apr Rebels v Southern Kings
3 May Rebels v Chiefs
17 May Rebels v Stormers
24 May Rebels v Waratahs
12 Jul Rebels v Highlanders

Actually, this reminds me that I have to respond to an email about this.

Wilful and I shall probably be along this Friday. Where's good for a pint around there? Is The Corner too far?

I'd already put plans under way for this Friday. won't be arriving until 7.20 so beer will have to be during and after.

of course mefites are union fans. There's a natural overlap with being smart witty and sociable.

Sweet! The corner is pretty close, so I'm happy to either meet there ~6 or meet at the game.

Well, how about C & I can meet you at the Corner about 6ish. Wilful can pick us up tix and we'll all meet at the gate.

Right Wilful?

Okay. In fact, I'll text you when I'm at South yarra station and meet you out the front of Richmond at about 7.25, assuming train is on time. Otherwise I'll see you in there, Yarra end.

OK mosessis, we've hijacked this for tomorrow. Now you should pick a date beyond peoples' planning horizons, and we can really do this. I am against May 3 and 17.

Really though, we should make this secret and pretend there's trivia at the Corner or something, so we can somehow drag russm and goshling to a rugby match.

Obviously, this needs to be kept very secret.

I have a deal where I can get general admission tickets for 10% off. Should I pick up some tickets when I walk by Melbourne Park on my way to The Corner?

Good idea, ppt, I'll call the "official meetup" for 8 March in case anyone wants a bit more notice.

And maybe someone else can make a totally unrelated meet up for 8 March to "catch up for drinks" at the corner hotel. But you're right, secrecy is paramount.

well I'm committed, so 10% off is $2.50 off, so it's not much of an incentive, but hey it's half a beer.

pompomtom, what could be better than a birthday rugby match?

The tix idea works for me. Two please!

C & I will be at the corner from about 6.

what could be better than a birthday rugby match?

I'm contemplating the Happy Mondays gig, actually.

Okay, so definitely two for ppt and I'm pretty sure one for wilful, making three total. See you at the corner / Richmond station.

Get one for Wilful. He's apparently got the earlier train and will meet us at the corner.

I thought this was to attend a roller derby game!

Bring skates! You can skate around the outer bit of the stadium.

Mine's a lager, ta.

So, is this still a thing? I'm meeting up with some folks at Fed Square for drinks at 6 before heading down. Anyone in for tonight?
posted by mosessis at 6:36 PM on March 7, 2013


well OK, I just noticed this. I'd have been up for a beer (though Rugby less so) if I'd have known about it.
