    A big alert to everyone who went to the last OzBargain Meetup - this is NOT the same location as the last meetup at Big Roddy's, it's at their other store, in the Valley. I missed that on my first speed-read of the deal.

    Also, if you want to be auto-notified of meetups, log in, then do a search for "brisbane meetup option:titleonly" (without the quotes), and then click on "!create alert". Check that it worked by navigating to My Account->Subscriptions->Events and you should see it listed. That's how I just got notified of this event!

    • +2

      Thank you for pointing this out!

      This is the Fortitude Valley location. This was selected to its larger location so that we can group together better.

      The venue will also be validating parking for those wishing to drive.

    • +2

      After almost missing the last one I too set up an alert, and got notified accordingly.

      I've been to both Big Roddy locations and the Valley one is definitely better for groups. It's generally a nicer setup too so I'm looking forward to returning!

    Dam we already got 30+ people attending, are there any size limits for our booking?

    • +1

      Based on last time I planned one of these, 30 really means 15. I’ve reached out to the venue regardless to check on our max capacity.

  • Thanks for organising! I'm a definite as I'm an Ozbargainer from way back but never been in a position to attend before. Size 3xl but 2xl will probably be fine if the larger size isn't available

    Would my 1 year old need an account too? She has an email address so I can set it up… Just wondering.. she might be the youngest bargainer 😂

  • I will be attending too. Size S please :D

  • Is there one coming to the Sunshine Coast? Driving down to Brissy is a bit of an effort :P

    • I'm coming from Sunshine Coast ;) you can do it!

      Otherwise, I'd be keen for a Sunshine Coast meetup if somebody would organise one.

      • Oh wow, I feel like if I didn't ask this, I'd lose my account here: carpool?

        I don't know much about the coast yet, everything seems to close at 1pm lol The issue is to find a venue methinks. Brissy ppl would be happy to come up for a day trip at the beach for a meetup, surely.

  • Coming size M, will have a 2 year old and 4 year old! Thanks so much

  • Sounds Awesome I'll be there.Thanks for orgonising size Large Please

  • Sounds Great! I'd like a 4XL shirt please :)

    A few event updates

    • Tee's will be limited. To ensure this is fair to all members they will be distributed as prizes.
    • You are welcome to bring your child. Please be aware though that there is alcohol available at the venue and a group of bargainers gets quite loud and rowdy. Those attending under 13 will also need to purchase their own meal.
    • Non-members will be turned away. Please make sure you and anybody accompanying you is a member.

    We have a special menu for the day for the free feed. There are two options:

    • Any burger, 1 side, and 1 soft drink
    • Pork button half ribs, 1 side, and 1 soft drink

    Whilst the venue capacity is 70 people, we can only fit 20 people at a table so we'll be spread out a little.
    In order to aid in planning and to ensure the venue isn't inconvenienced please make sure to keep your RSVP poll response up to date. scotty has rolled out a fantastic new event feature on the site which uses your poll response to allow check-ins on the day so it is essential you record your attendance on the poll. It's okay to change it several times but please make sure it's accurate as no-shows make it very difficult to plan.

    See you all there!
