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!

The Great Australian Meetup Thread - Sydney UPDATED (again)

VivixenneVivixenne I will protect the innocent.Registered User regular
edited May 2009 in Singularity Engine++
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.

Check this post frequently for updates on events and stuff, please feel free to join us at any event at any location if you'll be available!

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.

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!

    daddy-longlegs actually eat smaller, more dangerous spiders like redbacks.

    Also, I might come visit later in the year, but can't afford it right now.
