Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

======= IMPORTANT STUFF =======

FOLLOW AUSPAX2011 ON TWITTER FOR ALL UPDATES!

If you've confirmed your attendance, you are required to pay a minimum AU$100 deposit per bed!
Failure to pay by 30 September 2010 means your spot frees up! Check your E-mail for more details.

Please fill in the Accommodation Survey (found in the Info Sheet that you should've gotten via E-mail) as soon as possible!
I know we're not close to the 30 September deadline yet but the sooner you fill it in, the better off my sanity will be!

Got questions? Read the AusPAX FAQs first!

======= LATEST DEVELOPMENTS =======

- INFORMATION -
Heaps of information is now available regarding the finer details of the trip! Please make sure you've read the Info Sheet (sent via E-mail) completely and filled in all surveys on time. If you have any additional questions on top of the Info Sheet, please refer to the AusPAX FAQs.

- SCHEDULE -
15 JANUARY to 23 JANUARY 2011.
ALL ATTENDEES HAVE THE OPTION OF ARRIVING AND DEPARTING ON ANY DAYS WITHIN THIS TIMEFRAME, but the longer you stay, the cheaper prices become for everyone!

- LOCATION -
BYRON BAY
, NSW.
Accessible from Queensland, Byron Bay marks the easternmost point of Australia and features some absolutely gorgeous beaches! You can fly into Brisbane or Gold Coast and there are heaps of buses and trains that will get you out to Byron Bay. Please contact #pipe via PM or in the thread if you need more information.

- TRANSPORTATION -
We recommend the idea of groups of out-of-towners split car rental cost and carpool to the final destination. For those driving from Brisbane or Gold Coast, we would suggest they time their departure alongside the possibility of picking some out-of-towners up at the airport on their way. Hashpipe has provided a good summary of transportation options to Byron Bay here.

- ACCOMMODATION -
Accommodation within our target range of $250 to $450 per person for the whole trip has been found. More details about money transfer and deposit contributions will be made directly via PM and E-mail.

    It's why the lady told me to do a direct deposit

    She also told me to open a specific type of savings account which may net me $200 over the next year

    she was pretty rad
