Brisbane OzBargainers Meetup - CONFIRMED Friday 19 October
A few spots have freed up due to late cancellations. If there's anyone wanting to take their place PM me your full name and mobile number - 3 spots confirmed + a couple more potentially available at the moment. #
The cap of 40 has been reached. Please see quop's comment.
UPDATE 22 September
A few more people now know about this thanks to a notice on the OzBargain home page. The registration tally stands at 5 yes and 4 maybe - keep 'em coming!
UPDATE 11 September[Ref] — Nothing's changed, really. Registration has been open for a month and the RSVP tally still stands at 4. The event is about another month away, so hopefully a few more people can come/RSVP by then.
This event will be capped at 40 people. To attend, you must register. To register, PM me the following details:
- your real name
- your contact mobile number
To enforce the cap/prevent gatecrashers, entry to this event will be by showing:
- a confirmation SMS that I will send to your mobile at some later stage
- photo ID matching your real name
I will update on the progress of registrations in due course.
Update 25 July:

Spurred on by some comments in this thread, I'm just tossing up the idea of having a meet up for Brisbane based OzBargainers, and am wondering if and how many others would be keen to meet in real life?
I've actually thought about the idea before, but don't know if anything of the sort has been considered or done before. Anyway the idea is that having some real life contact (even if it's just limited to this one meeting) might help to foster a better sense of community amongst us, which could make things easier when organising group buys, sharing deals, or even just being more willing to give each other the benefit of the doubt when interacting in deal & forum comments etc.
We could use the deal linked above… it would be $10 per head if we had 23 people. That would require someone to buy the deal first and trust/hope others will come. I guess we could really meet anywhere though, eg book a table at a restaurant somewhere and everyone split the bill.
Ok over to you for thoughts/comments etc.
