    Well, There have been people screaming out for another meet-up, so I am happy to announce that it is officially on.

    Annotate your calendars for Sunday the 14th of July. This should give you enough time to get that ATO refund and channel it where its needed. That's right precious metals. You wont spend any of it on admission to this event, because once again it is free courtesy of our venue provider, still the finest venue for a stacker meeting throughout both hemispheres of this planet.

    This month we will have a lot to talk about. Lot's going on in the industry. Sam from Adams Bullion will give us a bit of insight into what he's seen in his first year of being a grown up bullion dealer.

    Speaking of Sam, he will be once again taking on the role of Auctioneer for our highly anticipated Auction. There will definitely be some items there with reserves well below spot.

    As usual we will have a few trading tables set up, showcasing a good assortment of precious metal from some of the local "Gold Precinct" retailers, as well as a few private traders (like myself) with a good assortment of precious metal goodies.

    The venue, as always will be revealed by direct message to those stackers who register on this page. We will run our usual time slot of 2:00 to 5:00pm.

    The CBD venue makes public transport easy, certainly much easier than parking, but all day parking is available nearby in Flinders lane at Sunday rates, which aren't usually too bad. Across the road the AOC car park (Manchester Lane) is also available on the Sunday.

    As with previous meetups, we will also be inviting members of some select Gold and Silver FaceBook groups.

    As always this is the absolute best time to come get yourself a bargain. Prices are near all time highs, but they are rising.... and if you have metal to trade/sell, you cant go wrong. There should be an XRF machine present to test stuff on the spot too.

    So let us know below if you plan to attend, and feel free to suggest topics or request particular items. A detailed invitation will be sent by private message.

    Rumours that Julian Assange is planning to attend, are just that, rumours.

    See you there.

    Ck.

    Be glad that time displacement technology isn't available to most civilizations; dealing with risks and resolving the resulting paradoxes are...non-trivial.

    Count me in.

    Yet again another great arvo. Hats off to you Captn and anyone else involved in organising that perfect venue with its amenities, and by golly free Minties at each table! :p So many awesome bullion deals and networking opportunities to be had.
    If I can provide one piece of constructive feedback, its that the auctions seemed to go on for a while.... but maybe that was just me?
    Thanks as always, looking forward to the next one.

    As a newbie to these meet ups, I second the thoughts above……an excellent afternoon with like minded stackers.
    Arrived with some trepidation but left very happy and looking forward to the next meet up. Thanks so much to the organisers.

    Great afternoon spent amongst fellow Stackers.
    Informative experienced Keynote speaker and a who's who of the Victorian industry were present this arvo.

    All kids got a free door gift of (x3) 1 gram coins as a starter pack for their stacking future.
    There was an incredible array of goodies on offer at the auction and bargains to be had.
    A big thanks to the Venue provider whom without this great event couldn't be possible.
    A big thanks to Captain Kook once again Steering the Ship successfully to port.
    Thanks Sam for running a kick ass auction doing a magnificent job once again!!
    Drew from Berwick Bullion Show cased his new 1 ounce cast bars which were choice and a great addition to the current selection on offer.
    There is one more Melbourne meeting before the end of the year to be announced by the Captain so if you missed out shout out and join the fun.
    Attached are the action results in pdf format.
    Peace out
    RB

    Yes, Jesus, it’s come along way in a few years and a long way more in a few more. Exciting phase for the community. Thanks to the organisers. And we’re always treated by a novel speaker.

    wouldn’t mind seeing a ‘Wishlist’ board somewhere to promote trade networking too
