Good question. I think that it would depend on the numbers of people. Personally I would have wanted to start up an "Australian" chapter to begin with (all in one) but if there are enough people in each major capital city to warrant it's own meetings and such, then we'll split them up.

What do you think?

I think we should have an australian chapter initially - that'd be my preference too. If and when it becomes too unwieldy and unmanageable then maybe we can consider splitting it. my vote is for an australian chapter foremost.

An upstairs room in a pub could be good. There's a few decent places aorund the inner city - newtown, erskineville, glebe balmain for instance.

There really aren't any decent pubs I can think of around Central or town hall...most of them are dives, and there's no parking for those with cars (like myself). That's why I was recommending an inner city area - close to the centre but far better ambience, far more options. Let's all put forward suggestions, and we can vote on it.

Once a location is settled upon, it'll be fairly easy to give people directions and a map from Sydways....

Good idea guys, i agree with unitstudio. I'll vote for balmain, many places to choose from around that area!
 
Old 04 April 2005   #26
Well even if balmain is difficult to get to, east sydney and darlinghurst (darlo bar for one), woolloomoolloo (there's some great places along the waterfront - ther'e one place that has the larget selection of beers I've seen and a huge upstairs area - i've forgotten it's name), paddington (heaps of great pubs, or alternatively, the fox and lion at Fox studios), and surry hills are all really easy to get to from the city centre, either a simple bus-ride or often you can just walk.

Oh and Balmain is a simple ferry ride from Circular Quay

I've from Brisbane but if I'm free love to come down and check things out when thay happen
 
Old 04 April 2005   #28
Cool, it'd be great to have you come down T4D. it might be cool if there's enough people in each city to send open invites to people in other cities. It therefore open for members across the country to visit a meeting in any city. I wouldn't mind travelling interstate occasionally to catch up with the melbourne or brisbane groups.

Very true... A good excuse to get out of our own cities for a breath of fresh air!
