    After the success of the last Brisbane meetup in 2011 we're going to do it again.

    Date:

    Any Friday in June. I'll throw the 15th out there to get started.

    Venue:

    Last time we started at Ahmets (South Bank) for lunch. Are we happy with the same again?

    Post here if you're keen or have any different suggestions for the date and venue.

    I'm keen.

    I'm flexible with day and time, but I'll be OS after the 22nd of June.

    I'm fine with Ahmets, but would also be happy to find somewhere new.

    15th works for me but i'd need for it to be concreted in asap so i can book flights.

    it seems we have enough for the 15th to make it happen and everyone else can fall into line?

    ned, i think we should make this more prominant on the forum to get more people involved?

    SO all i need is the person in charge to SET the date.

    where its held is the second concern, just seal the date.

    Okay cool, let's lock it in for the 15th.

    How does 1pm suit people? Last time we met at 1pm, although a few people were worried about missing the drops!

    Does anyone have any suggestions other than Ahmets for the venue?

    Shane - thanks for pushing this along. I think domainer meetups are absolutely vital and beneficial for all.

    So obviously we still need to clarify a few points:


    • Venue - I've heard Andrew knows a lot of wonderful establishments. ;) Perhaps we should just ask the question here if people prefer Southbank or the City / Fortitude Valley?

    • Time - drops are a religion for lots of us. So I would suggest 1.00pm for 1.30pm. That way people can rock up during that half hour, and we can all order some grub at 1.30. I have
      my laptop anyway, so it doesn't worry me.

    • Who is definitely coming? I think people should confirm here (along with their preferences), and I will keep editing and consolidating this list.

    So I'll start the ball rolling:

    Neddy - venue preference is "either" (with a slight lean to City / F.V). Time preference is 1.00pm to 1.30pm.

    Myself, Camereon Bell, Katherine Bell (no relation) and Peter Stevenson will be coming, wherever we decide to end up.

    If you are talking about Fortitude Valley, you could do worse than our local Watering Hole - http://www.fringebar.com.au/about-us. $4.40 pints (they have Fat Yak on tap) and reasonably priced lunches http://www.fringebar.com.au/menus

    Next door is http://www.kerbside.com.au/ for drinks/coffee later, and then plenty of clubs and restaurants for the young at heart.

    If you are looking for somewhere more central there's http://www.bavarianbiercafe.com/venues/view/17 though it is a lot more expensive...
