So....  Atomic Issue 1 was first released into the wild in February 2001 (according to the always factual wikipedia).  This means that in a few months, atomic will celebrate its 17th birthday.  Now, 17 is an important number.  It's our last year of childhood before the whole "adulting" thing falls upon our heads.  It's our last year of the freedoms accorded a teen.  It's also a great excuse for a party.
 
After some discussion (including a little batting of the eyelashes) with a number of our glorious editors (may they live long and engender many sons), I can now reveal the next "official" atomic meet (planning in progress).
 
So here, now is your "Save The Date" for Saturday, 3rd February 2018.  It will be held in (or very near to) the Sydney CBD (also as near to public transport as I can manage it).  It will be a chance for you to reunite with faces not seen for many moons.  It will be epic.
 
So, tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell those who have deserted these realms for the book of face.  Get them here and showing their interest.
 
Once I have numbers vaguely pinned down, more details will be provided including time, venue, attire and, if required, any cost.  Pants will be mandatory, however location of said pants is negotiable.
 
If you have ideas/suggestions/comments/issues/personal problems message me and I'll listen.  Post to let me know you want to attend and I'll add you to a list.
 
Lets make it happen people.
 
 UPDATE: Apparently atomicans are in the grip of wedding fever on that date, so I'm considering a change of date to Saturday 3rd February 2018. Please post thoughts...

UPDATED: FEB 3RD seems to be a go! Please note changed date!

Are you going to be there, Chayos?  In that case I think I'll suddenly be busy that weekend!

Yeah, right you are then, I shall be there. Like a big old high school reunion this is. This has great potential to be cool. Not necessarily huge, but just really nice to have a get together and see what people have been doing.

 

Magnificent as always, Chaos.

Intriguing! Colour me interested. But I can't commit to it until we have confirmed attendence slightly better than just the four of us.

Welllll if the "Pro.Tart" is not gonna be there it could be a date :P~~

 

... but seriously I doubt it. Even thought it's February and usually a horrible time for business, I'll be working ....

 

17years running is worth the celebration and kudos for still being a 'thing' in this fickle world of chucking out the slightly worn in favour of the boring new.

 

I will raise a glass and post something colourful from up here

So if I drag Husband and Miss 2 down to Sydney, I can totally just skip out for the night and go to an Atomic meet, right? That's totally cool :-D

Bring the hubby IMO - two is old enough to be locked up in the mod cave and given control for a night, surely?

Apparently atomicans are in the grip of wedding fever on that day so I'm considering a change of date to Saturday 3rd February 2018.

Thoughts?

I'm not surprised.

 

I met him at least once.

 

Drives a Lotus and doesn't afraid of anything.

Also has a pretty rad first name >.>
