The meetings will actually be held in the town of Coogee
(pronounced like `could she' after three cans of Fosters).
It is a seaside resort town in the southeastern suburbs
of Sydney. Tana and I lived there for a month when we
first moved to Australia in 1991. I can report that it
has a fine beach, a funky atmosphere, and easy access
to downtown Sydney, the airport, etc. The locals almost
speak English, so you can probably get by with a phrase
book such as "How to Speak 'Strine."

Here is the information provided by Catherine Hickie of
Whitesmiths Australia Pty. Ltd., who will be hosting both
