    Just spit balling at the moment but what say we hold a national meet-up?

    Yes it will cost, but none of us are poor. We could hold it in a mutually agreed city. We could charge $50 a head to the hosting city members with the money contributing to the incoming members. Maybe arrange a fleet of cars to pick up and drop off members at the airport so we can have a fly in - fly out day. Perhaps look for sponsors!

    I'll put my name forward to speak for the Sydney Stackeratti, need spokesmen for Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Tassie, Canberra, Brisbane and Nth Qland, and NT.

    Over to the other 10,000 members for comment.

    I've visited stackers in Adelaide. Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne, Hobart, Newcastle and Canberra, Perth is the most expensive. It unfortunately is the least practical city. Wagga Wagga would be the most accessible city for Me;borne, Sydney and Canberra. I also have strong connections in Albury.

    Yeh, we could do a tour of the inner workings of the new kid on the block, Bullion Now. Take about 30 seconds then we go for drinks. :)

    Would you be happy to help fund interstate visitors by paying $50 a head for Melbourne participants. Would also need to ferry visitors to and from the airport.

    Also I can't call it annual yet! Millennial at the moment.

    For something totally different how about Auckland as a venue

    Come on over and support the local economy with a visit to NZ Mint and have a holiday at the same time

    My biggest issue with travelling
    IS
    I've never paid to travel or to get into a venue or anything like that,
    If someone else pays for my ticket I'm there

    This is getting bigger than Ben Her!

    I suggested an East Coast of Oz city as it will capture the greatest number of Stackers. Secondly, Wagga or perhaps Albury would work as most people could drive or train there.

    There are better locations but the cost is prohibitive. I'm going against my grain, but just trying to be practical.

    Haven't been to Perth before and Perth Mint visit is on my bucket list, especially the mine to mint tour. I would be keen to attend the event if in Perth. East coast cities are the most practical and meeting up in Wagga/Albury is the most suitable as pointed.

    Great idea btw. Let's see if this works out.
