    Happy New Stacking Year Everybody!

    This Month's Meetup is on Sunday the 3rd March. It is again at our favourite CBD location, arguably the finest venue for a stacker meeting throughout both hemispheres of this planet.

    This month we will be breaking down the goings-on from the Berlin World Money Fair at the start of February, and with a bit of luck some items there may make it to the auction table.

    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.

    There have been a couple of up and coming dealers who would like to introduce themselves, and perhaps be subjected to a quick Q and A.

    We will of course be holding the auction, and Sam from Adams Bullion is again going to be running the Auction. It's dragon season, so I'll try and make sure that some lunar goodness is on the auction table.

    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.

    See you there.

    Ck.

    Yesterdays meet up was excellent. Great to meet many people I hadn't meet before and to put names to faces.

    Many thanks to Capt Kooks for all your hard work and a deserved recipient of a wonderful medal on the day.
