The 2018 Hi-Fi Show (Melbourne)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I hope to get to one of these soon - perhaps 2018.

 

Just a word of warning for any of those planning on visiting the show on the Sunday and intending to drive from the south-east of Melbourne.  Plan your trip carefully.  The Melbourne Marathon is on all Sunday morning 14 October 2018 (which involves dedicated use of St Kilda Road and also roads across to Albert Park/ St Kilda just south of the Junction Oval).

 

I suspect that you can get to Queensway via the tunnel near the Junction Oval, but that could be a very popular route from the Princes/Nepean Highway area despite being a Sunday morning.

 

Perhaps some SNA'ers will visit the show on Friday or Saturday, and then do one of the runs on Sunday morning (10 km, 21.1 km and 42.2 km options  :) )

It seems you can't run any event in Melbourne any weekend of the year without clashing with some sort of sporting or political event!

This one took me by surprise.

 

I'm working with the organisers/Vicroads to get a clearer understanding of the road closures, but at worst, they will only affect St.Kilda Road Junction until 12PM on the Sunday. It appears Queens Road will remain open at all times. The Free Parking around the lake however will be affected Sunday morning.

 

As we get more accurate information I will update the HiFi Show website with more information.

I wonder if the trams will be affected?

If not, grab one of them

Looking forward to the show even more now.

Yeah, I paid the full price.

Won't say no to any refunds that are going though!

Yeah, I live in Essendon but thought I would stay in the Pullman and soak all the vibes.

Like getting in early & hanging around to chat afterward, go to the dinner, and maybe do a deal or two regarding my HiFi upgrades (not to mention meeting the odd member or two).

Yeah, am really looking forward to the Show.

Don't need to do any count downs because the time count down is already there for all to see!!

Will add just a little extra explanation.

The Show happens to be close to my birthday and my wife & daughter, knowing my interests, told me that they would like to give me the weekend at the Pullman as a birthday present.

Was I going to say no?

No way!!

I’m toying, just toying with the idea of going to both!

Well driving over from Adelaide for the first weekend...
As long as there’s something to fill the time in Melbourne for the week!
Do others think there is??
Just saying!!

You'll keep Rushton !!

You could take the load of the previous exceedingly generous GTG hosts (ahem - me) by opening up your (non) open invite room with copious beverages and horsdouvers for our VIP Interstate guests ! :rolleyes:

 

Sure we'll organize another Saturday night dinner venue, and @jozs place on the Sunday last time was a blast being a perfect location with ample room and adequate sound system! (if a tad on the loud side!) :lol:

Yep the recovery day at my place was  great for those that could make it last year.

Was thinking about a gtg the following Saturday this time.

Will need to check with the bride.

Tickets done Airfares nearly done✓ as I'll be coming back from Papeete in that little chunk of Metropolitan France known as Tahiti after a fishing trip(hopefully, weather permitting). @Sierra ...you coming? @Milo you and Heather booked in? SirZingMeSomeMorWhats, you'll be there I'm guessing. @evil c will be in GTG/Dinner mode.

Archduke Albumen of Castle EggNog has purchased his tickets so he's a given.

 

I  reckon a little Yum Cha meet up in Little Bourke St might be in order on the Friday lunchtime if anyone's keen. Or even better, a table at Hu Tong dumpling bar in Market Lane off Little Bourke St. Quality! Numbers are of no concern, 2 or 20, doesn't matter.:)

I wont be out late at night as I'm officially a senior as of yesterday...woo hoo. Can't wait to get my card and pop a down payment on a zimmer and ogle gilfs.

Flights, accommodation and show tickets locked and loaded! :thumb:

 

Now we just need a volunteer for the Sunday GTG as @joz clearly doesn't want the Sydney riff-raff back this year...:(
