    Unfortunately Slushii and I managed to use a few new-fangled forum features to make the original thread disappear!

    <span style='font-size: 17pt'>Official Buller Daily Meet-Up</span>
    Location: Kofflers Restaurant Deck, under the Snow-Cam.
    Time: 10:30am

    In the interest of getting more forum members skiing/riding together and forming a bit of a Mt Buller community, it was suggested that there be a daily swing-by meeting point where members can congregate and ski/ride together.

    To get this idea off the ground, please use this thread to post if you plan on being there, and what you are wearing, and perhaps exchanging mobile numbers by PM would help as well. Then as people get to know each other I expect the idea should (pardon the pun) snowball

    Shame I can't really test this idea out for a while since I am not going to Buller in the next two weeks. I hope it is actually working! (fingers crossed) [​IMG]

    Sorry guys.
    Hoondog and I didn't make it there on Sat... way too much f@rt-@rsing about with other people and their stuff, and just had to go for a ski.
    And yesterday, I called the day off and stayed in bed. From what I understand it was a good call as it was snowy, and visibility of nought! Bed was warm and cosy!!!

    Maybe we'll try again next Saturday.

    Even though ski girl slept I still made it up the mountain and was under the Koflers webcam at 10.30. A lonly site, as all the smart people were inside keeping warm. Gave up on the day around miday and home to a warm fire and lunch.

    We will try next week.

    Skigirl love your motto tried for years to change that one

    Really? Bummer. I popped in there very briefly at about 10:35. Had a bit going on though so couldn't really linger.

    Hi All - I was up today from Melbourne (will submit a proper report in Mt Buller area as a separate thread). Now, I assume no one was there today, but if anyone was, I don't know how I was supposed to find them. I was at Kofler's at 10.15 and had a hot chocolate and waited until 10.35. However, today was pretty awful weather and so i waited both inside and out just in case.

    Now, assuming some Mooshers were there today (which is probably unlikely), I completely missed them. I was thinking maybe we could get a pole put in on one side of Kofler's Hut, like the ski patrol use, in orange, but with Moosh Meet Point or something on it, and inside, maybe something could be hung near the door and if your there at the meet time, you could just whack your name on the Moosh Meet Board and that would show that someone was there.

    Please, feedback, suggestions, discussion would be much appreciated.

    Sorry for the long post.

    Matt [​IMG]

    Certainly does sound like we have a good clan going on.
    So lets confirm, we are all meeting at 2pm at Kofflers (under the snow cam).
    I'll be wearing a white beanie and a blue & yellow ripcurl jacket.
    Does anyone wanna swap numbers or anything to make it easier?

    Going to be there tomorrow. If you see a guy in a blue North Face jacket & on Volkl 724 Pro's trying to work out how to ski after 2 year away from snow, then you'll see me... Just yell out 'Go Cats!".

    So did anyone actually go to Kofflers for the meet up Sunday?
    I waited round maybe 15-20 min and didnt see (well at least I didnt think i did) anyone.
    So did couple more runs round the Kofflers area and still didnt see anyone on the Lift back past.

    Sunday was wan awesome day, really goods runs when you stay out of the wind [​IMG]

    Going up this afternoon to ski Tuesday and Wednesday, so if anyone's going to be there, will be at Kofflers between 10.15 and 10.45ish both days to wait for Mooshers.

    Will either have a red helmet or a blue Monash Uni beanie on.

    More woke than thou.
    I'll be at Buller this Thursday to Saturday. I will try to be at the Koflers snow cam at 10.30 on at least two of those days. Is this system working, has anyone actually met a fellow moosher?

    Anyway, I'll probably be wearing a red and grey top with black dacks. I will defnitely have orange Fischer skis, purple Leki stocks and a distinctive blue and red canvas bum bag. (Colour co-ordination has never been a high priority for me.) I look like my avatar.

    If anyone wants someone to ski with, PM me. I'm going with friends and while they're good company, they are mid intermediate standard, so I'm looking for some company to ski the dark-blue and black runs.

    I'll be there on Thursday, see if I can make it to Kofflers at 10:30. I don't mind saying Moosh several times

    Re: Official Daily Buller Meet-up: Kofflers 10:30a

    I'll have to officially apologise for my non-attendance sunday. as previously mentioned, having a terrible flu, I was only out on the board for about 2 hours on sunday, and between 1 and 3 I was sleeping in the lodge buggered and resting my throat! (still crook now)
