    CW Meetup at the Basin Reserve (NZ vs. India Test)

    So, this was alluded to a while back in the relevant series thread. Dan is heading over, I'm there, Hurricane's going.

    On the Friday, I'll try and get there early to grab some prime real estate at the top of the bank under one of the Pohutakawas with some deckchairs, picnic etc. Anyone keen to do the same on the Saturday?

    Anyone else heading along?

    Oh yeah, and don't forget about Jono. There's always Jono.

    I'll be there for 4.5 days from the first day on Friday.

    Keen. I'll keep my eye out for you. You still look like this, right?

    Bit more grey in the hair these days and a bit less speedy, but why not?

    I could always decide to wear my bright yellow Firebirds shirt again...

    ...and then a non-descript jersey over the top.

    Just look for someone falling down the bank with a beer in his hand, and Heef will be right next to him.

    I am probably going with my cricket team on the Friday but will still come over to say hello for a bit on the Friday - I am trying to get free on the Saturday so I can hang out for the whole day however.

    I enjoyed Heef's post about the Firebird's shirt hidden by a non de-script jumper. For those not in the loop with that inside Joke - at the last meet up Heef assured me I would have no problem recognising him or the others at the bar because he would be wearing a Firebirds shirt. Yet when he turned up he had it on underneath his jersey. So I ribbed him about it.

    (He actually had a good excuse - but it didn't stop me).

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Yeah, potentially! Sounds good. But the Sunday's probably the only day I'll be able to make it to - and with it being day four, it could depend on the match situation by that point.

    I keep seeing Redmunds on the street and he keeps power-walking away while pretending not to see me, not sure what good a meet-up at Eden Park would do

    I would love to be there, but I am getting married this weekend. Unbelievably poor planning on my part. I have, however, already tagged a mate and instructed him to bring a smart phone and provide me with regular score updates.

    Pretty settled atm, been **** the last few days but forecast is looking clear, early 20's. Although I've learnt in Wellington you cant really read to much into the forecast more than a couple days out.
