    One more casualty - Peter Stevenson won't be coming as he's sick.

    See you all at 1.00!

    Hi guys, as I wont be able to make it to today Brisbane drinks, I have decided to provide some sponsorship for the event. I have a mate arranging that when he attends the drinks today.

    I hope that we can have these more often, not only in Brisbane but Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and anywhere else!

    Enjoy!

    What a great day, good to put a face to people on the forum. Many thanks to Drop and Erhan for the food and drinks.

    Sorry you could not make it Ned, hope you are feeling better soon.

    I was good btw and I did not drink too much, I had to catch the train home, so thought better of it.

    Sounds like you guys had a great time - I'm really sorry to have missed it.

    Thanks to everyone who made the effort to attend; and a big thank you to Drop and Cooper Mills for their sponsorship. :)

    Unfortunately I had a ticker scare early Thursday morning on Magnetic Island, and got transported to hospital in Townsville by ferry then road.
    Got discharged last night. Quite an experience. But first class treatment.

    Thanks for your well wishes on here - and text and email. I really appreciate them. :)

    I've still got my tickets, so be warned - I'll be down sometime soon.

    What an afternoon/evening. Met some very warm and welcoming people today; thanks everyone. :D It was great to put real people to the username handles on DNTrade.

    I'm wondering how some pulled up this morning however :confused: :cool:

    Thank you to Drop (Andrew) and Erhan for the sustenance; really nice gesture. :)

    Last man standing ! were did you go cameron?

    cameron and i ended up at the casino at @ 1am and then he disappeared?
    I ended up staying till 4am as once again as i missed the trains home and had to wait for the first train in the morning

    Thanks Drop and Erhan for the food and drinkssssssssssssssss , but the great conversations make these meetups compulsory attendance.

    i think there should be a rule though, "what happens on tour stays on tour? LOL

    What an afternoon/evening! Thanks Erhan for the money behind the bar - a very nice gesture and much appreciated.

    Great to put some faces to the names.

    I'm not sure how others pulled up the next day, but I was decidedly second hand :)

    It was a great afternoon and evening. Thanks to everyone who attended, and thanks to Andrew (drop.com.au) and Erhan (Cooper Mills) for putting on much of the entertainment.

    I would have kicked on, but my inebriated wife sent me an SOS from the Valley and needed rescuing!

    It was great to speak with a bunch of different people and learn a few little tips. Being someone who has no other mates interested in domaining, it's great to be able to speak with people who understand what I'm going on about!

    Hopefully we can make these events more regular in Brisbane. I think there's room for one or two per year.

    Thanks again to everyone who attended, and of course to Andrew and Erhan.

    :)

    Sorry about the quick entry and exit last Friday. It was great to see a lot of you again, and to meet a few more faces.

    Thanks to Drop and Erhan for putting on the food and drinks, even if I wasn't able to abuse your generosity as much as I would have liked...

    :D

    I look forward to being able to hang around for longer at the next catch up, which I'm hoping won't be too far into the future.

    My pleasure guys, I'm glad everyone had fun. I was really disappointed at not being able to make it this time, but next time we will have to head up en masse from Melbourne.

    David I think you are right, Sydney is due for the next drinks night!
