    I am keen for Friday 4pm + in Darling Harbour (Friday) Have a bit of work to push out but hopefully will be done in time =)

    I might try to bring a few mates from the industry if they are around.

    Do you want to do an agenda of who is coming?

    darling harbour works GREAT for me, so can some SYDNEY person just "set the location" as i don't know the places.

    as i mentioned previously , i think the casino has cheap parking, whatever the pub is behind the south steyne i find nice.

    at this moment i think attendees are:

    OK, so no sydneyite put there hand up so i'm going to state the location.

    the opinion is darling harbour so the meetup is at:

    the pub just off the pyrmont bridge near the south steyne boat. THUS its the casino side of darling harbour

    so if you are walking over the bridge go down the stairs and its the first bar.

    it has recently changed its name so i don't know what its called.

    the easiest way to find it is TRY to board the boat, THEN turn around 180 degrees and i will wave at you :D

    The name of the bar is Margaritaville - though it changes its name fairly often. I walk past it every morning on the way to the office.

    I can't make tonight, but hopefully will get to the next Sydney Meetup

    you just didn't stay long enough :D

    chris and i won again at the casino............ then lost :)

    bring on melbourne.

    anyway YES, it was lovely and the connections were great, one thing i really loved is that even though all you guys left the tab kept running till @ 3am on davidL's credit card ( sorry but in the end i had to sign it off for you ) [ man thosoe margarites @ $13 bucks a pop were amazing, can't really remember how many we had as those rusian girls showed up and we started getting them drinks? chris how many was girls were there? was it 6 or 3 or was i just seeing double?

    thanks NF for showing up and putting the credit card on the bar. maybe that was because johno69 had a $12K proxy on eels.com.au and then lost out to a $4K " buy now" because he was on the toilet at the time? not sure












    GOTCHA, just kidding

    To put it in perspective it was only $20 :)

    It was awesome to catch up, Sydney put on some nice weather for us.

    Thanks to everyone who came down, nice finally getting the chance to meet face to face.

    Mate I know you're just trying to lighten the mood, but I think it's a very raw situation and probably best to be a bit more sensitive with this one.

    That aside, more of these kind of events would be great. See you all at the next one :)

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Great to meet you guys!

    I learned lots of very useful things, and gained a much better insight into the “industry” it’s players and some very handy tactics.

    Thanks to all who attended, especially those who had to travel a fair bit to be there.

    If I can be of any assistance to you guys, I’m happy to try and repay your generosity if I can, feel free to PM me :)

    Regards
    Thomas

    i was trying to write it so everyone plainly got that it was written in jest.

    i think from the conversations i had last night i actually now fully understand the NF point of view which is up to them to post about if they desire ( not me )

    there are always 2 sides to a story and i found the conversations quite interesting last night, just another reason to show up to these events.

    thankyou for everyone who came, i learnt many things.

    and yes $20 is still winning but we had fun
