That's pretty much just 11 people that can be bothered to log into here, at this point.

 

... You think there's a chance that people will be bothered to travel when they can't be bothered to log in?

 

 

 

I logged in JUST FOR YOU CYBES :P

 

I am expressing interest in the meet but I don't know if I can make it as yet, as Juggs and I may be overseas. It would be great to see you all again! I am literally going down memory lane right now, I have just found my backed up hard drives circa 2004-2006 and the things I am finding, and remembering, are priceless <3

 

 

ALSO!!! Elvenwhore, you are a mumma now!! That's wonderful, congrats babe :D 

 

EDIT:


Re feeling old - I just saw my tagline below which has not been updated in fricking years - are you kidding me I won the nekked comp 10 years ago.

 

TEN!!!!

 

A DECADE!!!!! FKNWUT!!!!?!?!??!

I know, hard to fathom isn't it? I still have CDs and DVDs burned with entries for the last comp. (Stop looking at me like that! I was helping curate it, and the files got swept up in the timed backups.)

I've offishully booked holidays for that weekend and am just waiting on a venue or choice of venues to book accommodation. Worst comes to worst we can just go sit in the beer garden of the Taphouse.

SO...

 

Been doing some digging around on venues.  I've found a few in the CBD where we can get packages with foods and/or drinks etc for something in the $30-60 per head range.  I'm also looking at a speshul event slightly prior to the meet (a pre meet gamez event) for some team on team funs.  That will run us to $10-$15 per head if we decide to make it happenz.

 

Otherwise, I can just find a pub and do something far less organised.

 

Sooooooooo... I need some postage here as to which path I would be better travelling.  Do people want to do paid ticket event (and then probably pub crawl afters in the good 'ol atomic spirit)?  Are people interested in a fun and games prior to the drinkingz?  Do we wanna just hit a pub like a hurricanrana and leave them decimated and shellshocked after blearily working out just what the hell an atomic shot actually IS?

 

Paid ticket is slightly better in some ways in that we have (reasonably) exact numbers up front and know better what we can do and how it can run however takes a bit more legwork to make happen (which I don't mind).  Looser is a little more difficult in some ways as I have to plan for more eventualities but also kinda easier in some.  

 

Whaddayas think?

I have a preference for one meaningful organised thing, and people doing their own thin before/afterwards. Partly laziness, partly it means I don't have to deal with lots of people in the leadup to dealing with lots of people.

I'm voting Pub or "Lower Class" restaurant.

 

Also, just to ensure everyone meets and does the thing; I'm also voting for doing the meet\food, and then extra activities AFTER the meet.

"Pre Meets" are always just pre-existing friend groups, and it often means there's already a Clique going on by the time the group expands\meets up.

Works for me. Any higher than "Neat Casual" and I'll need notice. "Tie" and I'm not going. ;p

By that I take it you mean "next day" - because the previous ones I've seen tended not to have a whole lot of "after" where people are still willing to be sociable. And we're all older now - Grampa Cybes needs his sleeps.

My vote, less organised.

All we really need is someplace where the beverages flow freely and somewhere to sit/stand around drinking said beverages long into the night.

Availability of bowls of wedges a bonus.

Alright youngun's, gather round. In the before times, Atomicans came from all kinds of different places in their lives and interests, gathered around the Atomic flame. Magic happened. That magic still binds some of us together even now in the OMGISTHATTHETIME!? Sometimes we would have a gathering, to share space and brews in the reelworld. Some folks would come from faraway, others from downthestreet. Some would arrive the day before, to share special time with special friends. Others would arise early on THE DAY and meet in smaller mobs to do geek in their own peciliar ways. Most would just hope there would be somewhere to sit when they got to the watering hole we'd fooled into giving us access for the night.

Why don't we see if we can bring back something of that spirit, and that magic?


ISAIAH 58:8 "Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke? Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—when you see the naked, to clothe him,and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?"

As someone who doesn't drink, I'd request there to be the option for something like Fish, with those Wedges.

Because, well, nom.

 

Well fed atomicans are happy Atomicans, or so the Brisbane meets used to teach.

Soooooo.  Megaquick update.

 

Venue found and negotiations progressing.  BUT.  I really kinda need to lock in at least vague numbers for some of it due to trying to work out how much space approximately we will need (venues kinda like this info).  So this is gonna be a ticketed event.

 

Ticket price will be $30.  This will get you a spot at the festivities, a drink (wine or beer) on arrival, some scooby snacks (sliders/mini kebabs or something of that nature) and a piece of atomic birthday cake as well as the undying love of the community.

 

Walk-ins and last minute arrivals can be catered for if required, however this will help me organise stuff.

 

Venue details are to be released very shortly, but for those with the slightest bit of google-fu, start checking out public transport options to the Three Wise Monkeys in the CBD.

 

I have setup a paypal.me account, but will need people to email me details so I can match up payments and email tickets.  Links and confirmed stuff to follow very shortly.

 

Complaints can be made to anyone who will listen.

I would like to, but I'm unsure if I actually can ATM. I know I don't have long to make a decision, but it's not all up to me. I'll keep you posted.

Don't worry if you can't lock in now and need more time. As long as I've got serious numbers by Jan or you let me know what's going on, I'm hoping to sort out final stuff much closer to the date.

If i get the bulk of peoples getting a ticket by New Years, I can sort out the final stuff later easily. It really helps me out to know basically what I'm working with. It also means we get the best deal i can manage for the price. :)
