So, last year's Post Pax Party had only one negative, not enough peeps! (And no @Danacyrus
after all her hard effort organising it =( )@Tokyodove
also helped out a lot from what I recall.
Thought it might be time to start thinking about PPP2014!
This would be happening on the Sunday night - November 2nd
To start things off:
Venue: Did we want to move? I actually thought the location was decent, and it will be even closer to PAX itself this year, I don't see big reason to move it - despite King St
Promotion: These forums don't get a lot of traffic for PAX Aus - and even less so this year (I myself am equally guilty) - Facebook does appear to be where most of the traffic is - but is there anywhere else this should get posted to?
Guests / Music: Thoughts / suggestions? Last year was great in that respect IMO.
Any other thoughts / ramblings, go ahead
(One final note - this is, of course, an *UNOFFICIAL* party)
It's only two and a bit months off but there doesn't seem to be much hype this year.
Or is all the planning somewhere else?
I had a discussion with Skadis from Beta Beta Bar (old mana bar) who have apparently got a venue for the 3 days around PAX, with a 24 hour license which looks like we could potentially do something with them.
But unless there's some interest here (or somewhere...) it might just be ran by them.
I just hope reading the board keeps me in the loop is all, as I don't really use facebook.
Get on it!
Its cheap enough that if something comes up or is announced that I'd prefer to go to on one of the nights I won't feel so bad if I blow it off because its only the price of a decent drink and there will still be a chance to go on another night.
We had a pre pax meetup /pub crawl last year that started at fed square. That was kinda cool. It should be done again, I have a 4 day leave pass from my family...
More people might be nice, but we fit the venue pretty well so if you want more people, recommend more space.
I agree somewhat.
The Beta Bar one is at a different, MUCH LARGER venue. ofc no idea how loud it's going to be at this stage...
I'd suggest that tickets are getting pretty low..
