This dashpoint was only about 25 kilometres from home so I thought I'd
better get it before Geoffj did! We drove to Cranbourne, a satellite
suburb of Melbourne, along the South Gippsland Highway and turned off
into Sladen St. We got to 11.1 metres in the exit driveway of St
Agatha's Parish church and school. The carpark was full and the 6 pm
service was by now, in full swing. We took some photos from the car.
Zero point looked to be just inside one of the school classrooms.
That's 3 points for Dashing Dog's Mum and 3 points for EnDash! thanks

Sheeesh, with team mates like this .... I guess old GeoTerrier habits
Cranbourne, Victoria, Australia
Sunday Feb 8th, 2004
approx 2:30pm local time
Anyway, after a period of lack of opportunities to dash, I snuck out
with my son, Michael,. who is nearing the driving age of 18, and
needed some more practice before going for his licence soon.
YUIQ is located in Cranbourne, an outer suburb of Melbourne about 30
km away from our home in bay side Sandringham.
Wearing the "L" plates on the dashmobile,we approached it via the
Nepean Highway, the Mornington Peninsular Freeway, Hall Road and
finally Sladen Street. Turning into Scott St and then into the grounds
of St Agatha's Catholic School, we confirmed the DDM teams report that
the dashpoint lay in a classroom adjacent to Scott Street.
Not requiring the absolution needed by the DDM team, we quickly
departed and returned home via a few used car yards which Michael was
keen to visit in the nearly 40 deg C heat which Melbourne experienced
Now for the points situation.
This one was visited by DDM and DDMum, together, last week,
and both reports are already in.
I think this means 2 points for En Dash! and 2 points for GeoffJ3191,
but I am not absolutely sure.
