BT Hangout Australia, Sydney - JUNE

Hey BT Gang,

Just want to gage interest in having a buzztouch hangout in Sydney over the weekend of the 12-14 June.

What it is going to entail is totally up to the response we get and what you are looking for, there is options for just a hangout BBQ, up to Having a code school or both etc.

Please comment on this thread or PM if you are keen and have any suggestions.

oh yes, one more thing, there will be a special guest attending....he/she/it will make him/her/itself known when the time is right.

Look forward to seeing if there is any interest.

Apart from a 9 hour drive, I would love to attend but some local sporting commitments make it impossible for me :(
Sorry KB ... may be next time.

Cheers

I've been itching for a reason to go to Australia, but sadly, we're going to see the in-laws the day after tomorrow in the Philippines, and will be fresh out of the kind of funds needed for that sort of venture.

Rest assured one day I'll make it to Sydney, if only to take a selfie by the opera house and head back to the airport. But probably not this year.

Cheers!

I can pull a list for you of people in Australia, if that would help.

@KB I thought you were in Western Australia!

@Smug ... you really need to stay longer! I'm sure we could billet you out to various BT'ers right around Australia :)

Like Sue said, I'll see who's on the Australia part of the world (query the map) and get a list together.

@KB, how many do you want to attend? I doubt there are "lots" in that area but surely there must be some :_)

As many as want to or are available. That will determine what we do.

If there is only a handful then maybe a BBQ otherwise we can arrange something more formal.

Don't want anyone to miss out on our VIP guest ;)

Who the heck do you have coming all the way to fricken' Australia. Geez.

BBQ, great idea, I'll see if I can drum up a list of Aussie folks and email it to you.
