    Sorry for being so AFK, I'm going to confirm with transport bar tomorrow for all of us, but since I'm enforcing this year, I won't be able to have as an active role as I hoped...

    I'll write here tomorrow in regards to transport (should be fine) and then really up to you feral! I have a few places in mind, but I'd be lucky to make it to the transport in time to be honest...

  • FuzzyPredatorFuzzyPredator MelbourneRegistered User regular
    Oh, I'll see if I can get in touch with Bartronica tomorrow as well! Could be great to pop by there on the way ;)

    I'm staying at the United Backpackers, just across from the Flinders St Station, couldn't be more convenient

  • feralmasterferalmaster melbourneRegistered User regular
    Thanks for the heads up re Bartronica, Not looking like it will be as big as last year, guessing max 20 people at this stage @FuzzyPredator So probably no real need to book ahead...

    I would love to show the international people the city of Melbourne. Just imagine having a drink with a German, American, Canadian, British, New Zealander etc etc... all in the one bar and the same time. Even though i would not be drinking alcohol like they would, it would be an amazing time. Mostly because, they are very likely to have the same interests as me despite coming from the other side of the planet.

    @mouseno4 couldn't agree more, my wife & I caught up with a gaming friend and his partner in New York when we were on our honeymoon and it's to look back at it and think that we know each other through gaming and had so much to talk about because of it!!

    I have told Transport about is rocking up and they're cool with it, but wanted a casual $5000 to book a room, so I reckon, just rock up! I'll try to make it there as quickly as I can after all the [E] stuff...

    @feralmaster can you please pm me your number, just in case I'm running late?

    Also, people, remember Twitter is your friend, tweet #paxbeer as to where you are, how you're enjoying it, etc. Get that trending!

    Hey I was in last years thread!

    But probably not. I have a dinner at 7:30 and I felt like shit start of pax last year after tracking you guys down for a beer and then staying up too late. :P

    Hey I was in last years thread!

    Yes, but you already posted in this one, so already know about it ;) I was much more sensible last year, paced myself. The year before at the racetrack I was a write-off and didn't get there till midday.

    I am starting to look forward to the pre-PAX event. Only for the interesting people and conversations i might have.

  • feralmasterferalmaster melbourneRegistered User regular
    So I went and had a chat to the guys at Games Lab. They have a limited licence on weekdays. There is a Magic tournament upstairs on that day. If we are going there and want to at least get a drink in it is super important we arrive before 11. That being said there are plenty of places nearby.

  • CarrotTopCarrotTop Registered User regular
    I can't believe it is 12 hours till I set off for Melbourne. So excited to meet you all!

  • IMSanchoIMSancho Registered User regular
    Yeah I'll come along again, was a good time last year though I might head off a bit earlier this time around :P

  • SuperRoachSuperRoach BallaratRegistered User regular
    I'm likely not going to join until before tea, but good to note the shirts there :)

    I'm going to check up if you can pick up your tickets early / on thursday (media pass), so that will help too.

    But yeah once I've checked my bags and stuff in to the hostel, I'm all free for pax.

  • FuzzyPredatorFuzzyPredator MelbourneRegistered User regular

    Agreed. If you are new to Melbourne weather, dress for humid but be prepared for the nightly cool down. :)

    I am wearing my Star Wars "Join the Dark Side" t-shirt and camo shorts. The guy with sunnies on his head is likely me. :P

    Rofl! I don't know what to look for so there is no way I could tell anyone from anyone.

    I have not seen anyone wearing what has been mentioned here.

  • SamBSamB Registered User new member
    Just found this thread and the Transport Bar is 5 minutes from where I'm staying. Noice. I'll be there after food!
