This weekend is a bit soon, but the 22/23 is OK for me.

Sorry about the other week Miss Bee, we didn't think anyone else was coming!

BS93, 21 isn't too young, and you might give me ideas on how to influence my siblings in this direction :)

This weekend is probably a bit soon to organise, as not everyone checks all the time. 22-23 is out for me, as I am with my folks all weekend.

The 30th/31st and 6th/7th would both work for me - weekends are better for me than weeknights at the moment, too.

Sorry about the other week Miss Bee, we didn't think anyone else was coming!

Miss Bee wasn't the only one! I had a call from limeandpepper, who had turned up only to not be able to find anyone :-(

I think it's a really, really good idea for us all to post when we're planning to come to a meetup, so that if something goes wrong (forum down, venue closed) we at least know who we should be trying to find and/or contact. If I'd known we had five people coming to the last one I would have turned up despite the forum crash.

Ah yes, it was confusing last time! At least the boyfriend and I got a "city date" out of it.

I can't do this weekend either but other weekends should be okay.

30/31 and 6/7 are good for me too. Agree we should post if we are planning to come, as I thought it was only going to be myself, anatidaev and happier at home...I am also generally good for weeknight meet ups (but not Mondays) if they are in the city

How does late afternoon/evening of the 31st (Sunday) sound for everyone then? The next day is a public holiday as well, so most people shouldn't have to worry about getting things organised for work on Monday that day either, I figure. Say 4pm at San Churros in the city?

I won't be able to make this upcoming one after all! It suddenly appears that I will be in Sydney from late May onwards for a few weeks.

Hi Perth Moustachians,
I've been reading the blog for a few years now, but I've only just realised there is a local group!
I'm a nurse, a dog lover and a home-owner who is focused on paying off the mortgage quickly in a bid for financial independance.
I'd love to meet up some time, can't make the one on the 31st of May as have plans with a friend, but I look forward to meeting you all at some stage.
Regards
Binky

Yay, how nice that you've found us!

We do meetup pretty regularly (roughly every month - six weeks) so hopefully there'll be one you can make in the near future :-)

I'm looking forward to meeting those who are coming today! 4pm at San Churros in the city - I'm going to wear a big straw hat (or if I can't find that, some other big hat!) so that I'm easy to find.

I vote back to food monkey for the next one... I missed my bagel :-) for those following at home anatidaev, happier at home and myself attended the last meet up... We'd really love to see more of you at the next one :-) perhaps in late June?

I'll still be in Sydney but I'll try to make the next one!

Additionally, HappierAtHome, I just saw you mention a clothing swap in another thread. While this wouldn't work for me, I've been thinking for a while that it might be kind of fun if a few of us did a garage sale together sometime. If anyone else is keen, I'm totally up for it...

Hey this sounds cool :-) my friends did one a while ago and made a decent amount each. I think having a good location helps... They did theirs in north Perth so close to all the cafe strips and stuff. I dunno if I have enough stuff (I tend to get things out of my life pretty quickly once they are not useful to me, but might be interested as I should really do a serious de clutter before I move to Melbourne :-)

I'd participate if someone else wanted to organise, host etc, but I don't think I can commit to being 'in charge' of a garage sale anytime soon (trying to commit only within my capacity, which lately isn't huge).

I don't have a lot of other things, but do have some fairly nice clothes.

So early July bagel date with limeandpepper. Shall we start tossing some dates out now so people have loads of notice? How about Sat 4 July in the morning say 9.30 ish. For anyone not in the know the bagels are at food monkey in Northbridge near the corner of lake street and Newcastle street. A coffee and fancy pants bagel with bacon or whatever will set you back less than a tenner :-)

I might even should be in Perth then (depends upon my jury duty, and how long it takes me to drive there).

No, the jury duty was over. I was coming across to visit my SIL and nieces while the girls were on holiday - to help my SIL. But that doesn't appear to be happening.

I missed this! I think I only have phone numbers for the people who have already posted re 4 July (I didn't write down numbers at that meetup when a few people did - just gave out mine - so I only have numbers for the people who have called or texted me at some point) but I'll double check and get in touch with anyone who hasn't posted.

Soooo shall we start thinking about dates for the next Meetup? I think we were all in agreement on Saturday that we needed another one sooner rather than later :-)

I'd love another coffee and bagel catchup, 25th and 26th of July and 1st and 2nd of August are all good for me at this point.

I am more likely to make it to one on the 1/2 August.

Anyone have a preference for the 1st versus the 2nd?

I'd probably slightly prefer the 1st, but both are free at this stage.

Excellent, I can come on the 1st too. Really enjoyed the last one - will endeavour to have phone charged for the next one so I don't stand outside for 10 minutes like an idiot wondering where everyone is.
