I'm flexible, but 20:00 AEST sounds good. Could I suggest a note to memebers about five to seven days beforehand, perhaps specifying a kick-off issue/agenda item or two, and that the meeting might be limited to 60 mins or less? If the maximum duration is long, or the end-time is open-ended, the drop-in drop-out casualness of it all detracts from the cohesiveness of the gathering.
