    Good chance I’ll be able to make it too. Thanks for organizing lyl.

  • Is 8pm-8.30pm too late to come? I'm working :-(

    • +2

      Both the Sydney North Shore and CBD meetup lasted around 3 hours, so there should still be many ozbargainers there. I think there's a good chance the food/freebies would already be ozbargained though.

      Hi pinkal sarvaiya,

      It is at a pub and alcohol may be present, and there will be a lot of people there, so I'm not sure it is kids friendly.

    I think I thanked everyone behind the event there but if not thank you all for making it happen.

    Great to meet some more ozbargainers and special thanks to Skycomp for the Gimbal - something that I've eyed for an age but always been just out of my target price range. (I didn't look very glamorous on the livestream lol)

    Thanks again guys see you all next year - maybe if I start saving I can buy myself a Vive by then 😁

If anyone has the photos, please do share. Congrats to the raffle winners.

    Thank you to the other co-sponsors (Wireless1, Mobiciti) also for the teamwork in making this happen. And lastly, thank you Scotty for allowing and supporting these OzBargain community meetups and making them a reality!

    P.P.S: As Lyl mentioned above, please post photos if you took some! Tag #OzBargainBday on Insta/Social to make them easier to find if you post them that way.

  • Hi all,

    I have added "Not a Bot" badges from the list that lyl passed on to me. If you came to the event but did not have your name ticked off by lyl, you would not have received the badge. Please PM me if you wanted it added to your account.
