Brisbane Mini-Meet in November, Anyone Interested?
« on: Saturday 08 September 18 09:34 BST (UK) »
It's been suggested we have another Mini-Meet, possibly in November.  All the meets we've had have been so successful, interesting and a damn good laugh.  We've made friends, we've met new people and we've discussed many topics.

If you are interested in a Brisbane Mini-Meet, please put your name down and we'll take it from there.

I'll put my name down.

(PS  Your link took me to page 1 of the old thread, for some reason.  So I just found the new thread on the board.)

Gosh it's years since I've been to my one and only of these!

I'm interested, too - depending on what day we decide upon

Would if I could, but sadly, it's a bit more than a bus ride!

Enjoy it though.  :)

Please put my name down  for this. Never been to one before so I don't know what to expect.
I suppose for me the main questions are where, when and what topics.

Hi Jacky
The where, when and what topics . . . the where is usually somewhere around Southbank as it's pretty central for parking, buses or trains, and the when will be a date (usually a Saturday) we can all manage.

Now, the topic is typically what ever we wish to talk about on that particular day.  Could be something relevant to us all, or it could simply be a fun get together with quite a few laughs - which is what's happened before.

We rarely have a set topic it meanders from 'Did you find your Great Granddad' to 'Do I really want to find my Great Granddad?'

Hope to see you at the Meet.
