another possibly stupid question? i'm anticipating there could be other tool fans also prepping, will there be something to identify the group? ya, know maybe a secret password? sign or name tags with our usernames..."hello my name is...." that'd be funny
I'll probably just post a selfie somewhere so you guys can track me down on the night

Just head for the most attractive looking group in the bar. We'll be easy to spot! :)

Well, if I'd known we were all seniors I would have picked the Lawn Bowls club for the meetup

I do have a question, this senior has a bad back and has chosen a seat for the shows. whats the general rule in Aussie stadiums? Can you stand if you choose to? or is everyone cordial and sitting?

Thanks. Suspected as much. Went to the brisbane side show in 2011 and everyone was sitting. It threw me a bit. Guess we're not as cultured in NZ lol

For anyone attending this meetup, I recommend joining Discord for up to the minute updates on when and where stuff will go down:

So... the Discord app was hogging all my phone battery, so I had to ditch it. I don’t think it’ll be too hard to find y’all tomorrow. Head up though, there’s a craft beer launch/event happening from around midday at Beer Deluxe, so it may be extra busy, although it may have cleared by 4pm 🤷🏽‍♂️

This never would have happened at the imperial but what does the Bogan from the far north know.

The Charles Dickens Tavern is obviously the most underrated choice, but it's not like I've ever lived there.

I'll be partying in Cal's penthouse with a bunch of models, shame you guys didn't get an invite.
We're going tonight. Me and the missus.

In all honesty and everything else aside, I hope everyone has/had an enjoyable night.

We plan to..

The meet up's (and there were several) were a highlight I'm sure for all involved. Fantastic gigs and a thoroughly awesome weekend. Thank you for facilitating Hellboy! x
