    yes, I forgot of other followers, thanks. I'd actually prefer a park w/ toilets and tables w/roofs on a moderately wet day I'd tarp off a table or 2 and the only people in the park would probably be us. My personal reasoning includes: i don't eat lunch and try to avoid pubs (ex-alchy).

    Heres where we need that cat lady.

    I'd actually be OK w/ my place as I'm in a unit, the other units have 'useful' people who are likely to be home and awake almost 24hrs a day. a breakin would be difficult here. (I'm in a small 1 bed *very small lounge OK for 2-3, 4 people max). If at my place I'd ask everyone to respond by PM and I'll give you my ph number so you can call me for the address. Doing that reduces my risk and as far as anyone else goes, it should help reduce yours. theres enough parking here for 5 extra cars

    So, I'm for a park, but will go with pub If needed. I propose a vote (order of preference) mine is

    park, my place, cafe, pub

    Look, while your energy and enthusiasm are highly admirable, please please please do not let anyone know where you live and sleep. Use a PO Box or a Parcel Locker (or f2f well away from your private residence, in a public and safe place) for any trades. Bad things have happened here before. We can only do our best to be cautious, and hope by being vigilant with security they will not happen any time soon again.

    The upstairs of Lord Stanley is not like a pub, it is more sort of a function room with a very large meeting table and seats around it - suitable for 'social distancing' if anyone worries about that sort of thing. The location is very convenient (central) and with ample free parking.

    Other place I could think of could be public libraries, some of them have meeting/hobby rooms that can be booked ahead for private meetings by various groups/clubs.

    I get all my silver delivered to my workplace, never get anything delivered to my home address but the number of packages of silver I get from members get with a return address on the back is worrying.

    We have had about 3-4 Brisbane members on this site fall victim to break-ins, not necessarily related to the forum as people move in many circles but it is a concern.

    Upstairs in the Lord Stanley does not have a working bar and not all the members are drinkers.

    There are as many good reasons for there as anywhere, so lets stick with that (if there are no further objections).

    I'll attend and lets get an idea of numbers in case a booking may be required. I don't have the budget for bookings (I'm a faily small fish in the pond). Others are suggesting weekend days, I'm good either day, any suggestions to day, time and duration?

    If someone wants to organise something further like asking Imperial or informing other brisbane stackers, please say so as I'm only throwing out suggestions to plan it as a group. I certainly can't run it as I can only attend the first 1 or 2 (I have to leave in a few months, I'm keen enough to travel an hour or 2 once a month to attend after that, if it's going ok).

    Well if the Lord Stanley's done the job in the past, why change. I don't drink alcohol either. I probably won't get to many meets, so monthly is not an option for me. I am keen to meet some Brisbane stackers and have a chat, hopefully there'll be a decent turnout. Saturday middayish is usually good for me.

    More than happy to allow the use of our air-conditioned showroom floor for meets, also has open plan kitchen, bar room and meeting room. However would be limited to only 7 people at once with the Covid restrictions as it's not a huge amount of space.

    Location (Victoria Point) could also be a bit far for people coming from the Northside. Alternatively would be keen to meet up with everyone at the next meet, wherever the location.

    that's another good idea, what does everyone think, or is lord Stanley still the most desired?
    also, shall we start to work on a date? We still have what seems to be an even balance between sat/sun and hows the 1st weekend of next month? (5th/6th)

    Good for either the 5th or the 6th, also fine with either location, what ever everyone prefers.

    Hi all
    Would love to come over again and attend another meeting to catch up with the regulars as it seems a life time since I was last there ( 3 years )

    We are well overdue for a stackers meet

    Only problem is Jacinda required that we have to 7 day home isolate on our return to NZ
    Hopefully the restriction will be lifted soon

    is it worth extending an invitation to Michael from Billionnow to attend

    Social distancing requirements are changing so we might be able to get more than 7 people at a time, not that that would be an issue considering the turn out last time but it would be nice to see a few more.

    I am up on the Northside but I have to get into the car anyway so Victoria Point is not a problem. Lord Stanley is nice but I could skip the expensive cider and have a cup of tea instead.

    Vic Point is my preferred, particularly now covid restrictions have eased and seems to be quite a bit of interest to attend. Saturdays suit me best as I have soccer on Sundays. Lord Stanley is OK too if consensus goes that direction.

    Do you think there will be a brisbane meet anytime soon? Would be keen to attend.
