All right dudes, the former PerthPAX thread is now the official Australian Meetup Thread, wherein all meetups and "miniPAXes" in Australia are listed by city, and included are links to recaps for earlier gatherings!

HOW TO USE THIS OP: if your city name is colored ORANGE, it means there's an upcoming event available in the spoiler, and the next one is happening on the date appearing next to the city name (if confirmed)! Attendee names in BOLD means that this is the first gathering they are attending, while those that have been crossed out are cancellations. Times, dates, and locations are where everyone is expected to MEET and does not necessarily detail where things will end up.

To sign up for an event, post your interest in this thread so that I can see it, and consider letting the listed Contact know via PM as well.

Feel free to initiate an event just by posting in this thread or PMing me with details, and I will edit them in here and update the title.

PREVIOUS AUSTRALIAN GATHERINGS
VIV'S ASIAN HQ MEET-UP - PERTH - the very first Perth gathering which was great fun that involved kebabs and pool and drinking and Castle Crashers and angry sex (faces)!
Pictures by Butler

WAKA LAKA'S THEORETICAL BBQ OF MANY LIES BUT THAT IS NOW TOTALLY GOING TO HAPPEN - PERTH - a great amount of fun featuring a fantastic host, tons of meat, alcohol, dice games, oysters, and Little Big Planet
Pictures by Waka Laka

KINCAID'S 1907 BINGE - PERTH - April 9th, Thursday - a night that started off hectic but ended up quite fun, we got dressed up, drank, and wished Kincaid a happy birthday at midnight
Pictures by Kincaid

BUTLER'S GREAT ADVENTURE - PERTH - April 13th, Monday - the largest PerthPAX by far with 9 people showing up, in spite of poor weather we ripped through a very eventful day at Adventure World, which included people getting stuck in rides, people getting heads bashed in on slides, ducks being chased in the swimming pool, boob-feeling on the giant boat ride, tree-climbing to retrieve thrown towels, three couples and a threesome, poker, and generally speaking all-round good fun (pictures on the way, we did end up taking some but after AJR, flynnie, and BigKev had left us!)
Pictures by Kincaid

MOVIE NIGHT I - PERTH - April 30th, Thursday - a low-key, kick-off-the-new-month gathering that involves watching the X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie! Featuring running commentary, loud bursts of random giggling and laughter, popcorn, caffeine, too much Gambit, and a serious lack of Deadpool! Pictures on the way!

DOING POOP WITH SYNTHETIC ORANGE - MELBOURNE - June 7th, Sunday - Chinese food and drinks, I think is how this went. The awesome members of the Melbourne SE++ family met up (this means all of them sans YaYa who is a pedophile) and had good times.

SYDNEY MEETUP - SYDNEY - June 20th, Saturday - Also known as "HandsomePAX." I hear this was good, but not as good as the one that happened in Perth at roughly the same time. Because the Perth one was just better.

NERD MOVIE MARATHON - PERTH - June 20th, Saturday - a mass gathering of all the known Perth forumers! Iron Man, Transformers, and... Barbarella were watched to the accompaniment of burnt caramel popcorn, the yummiest spinach dip ever, and an abundance of alcohol. With some malfunctioning XBox 360 controllers and Red Faction on the side and plenty of cock and boob mentions, it was a wonderful evening!

    You know those brain bugs they were using for torture in the new movie? It has those.

    Also Ricardo Montalban, the man with the best name ever. Seriously, try saying "I am Ricardo Montalban" and someone nearby will start playing spanish guitar.

    I just about froze my ears off when I rode my bike into work last week.

    Then I realised 2 minutes before I got there that I was wearing a hoodie with the hood down, and that I was quite stupid.

    it's really only chilly here super early in the mornings or late at night

    during the day I can be in a tank top and jeans no problem

    it IS a bit weird going into May/June and having to wear MORE clothes instead of less, I'll say that

    I do actually wear the hood around the house when it's cold. I am wearing my ADIDAS hoodie right now. I prefer not to wear the ADIDAS hoodie out of the house though on account of it says ADIDAS on the front in big letters and people might see the ADIDAS and think I am some guy who thinks wearing ADIDAS is cool.

    Mine is the Penny Arcade Black Mantle hoodie, so nothing that stands out. It's very comfortable.
