    Well worth putting aside a Sunday afternoon to come along and meet a good bunch of guys and lady in attendance

    Some nice coins went under the hammer at auction time at very reasonable prices

    I’m sure you will enjoy it and I encourage all other Queensland stackers to front up and support each other on the day

    Couldn't say it any better than Jultorsk. It was a great afternoon at my first ever SS meetup and yes there where some really gems on offer at ridiculous prices. Oh and the D'oh price giveaway from Perth Mint was an added bonus to my afternoon. Thanks to all for organising the day. Definitely will be attending the next one. I think I may have come home with more than I went with! :)

    Here's a quick roundup of our thoughts on the Brisbane meet up. Short answer, it was great!

    Thanks for the vid. Nice write up.

    As a suggestion for future events, if they can be held somewhere close to a train line that may possibly help numbers. If I went I'd like to be able to have a few drinks and not worry about how to get home.

    Also, East Brisbane has always been a shit fight for parking.

    Thanks again for the review.

    Plenty of free parking at the pub we were at.

    It's the drinking and driving bit we're trying to avoid :)

    Yep - John GF covered the trains. I was just covering the "East Brisbane parking shit fight" comment.

    As I said at the meeting, definitely open to suggestions of other places. I'm a typical Victorian and have no real knowledge of the pubs north of the border. :) . If there is somewhere better - let me know and we'll look at booking it for the next function.

    I nominate Paranoid Android's place, saves him worrying about trains, walking, sweating, humidity, drink driving, switching lines, etc, etc. :p

    No issues with that at all. As long as the dog accepts you, you're in.

    BYO. Any leftover booze remains for my doomsday collection.

    Thanks Michael for putting the vid together summarising the event and also thanks for the special mention of those who flew in to attend

    I really enjoyed coming over and putting faces to names I have traded with plus meeting other stackers

    I’d certainly be a starter for the next proposed meeting in May (buzz)
    Hopefully we will see a bigger turnout

    Without you and CK pulling this together it would never have got up and running thanks again for your efforts much appreciated

    Cheers
