1 week …. I’m quite happy with that as long as nobody else minds.
Otherwise, please say so now or forever hold your piece / peace.

I thought we are meeting on 20/10, Wednesday ?


I'm fully vax, but I will be only a week ago, as of the 20/10 ... is it ok if I still attend? It's ok if the 2 week rule is mandatory, there will be other meetups :)

Yes, that is it. Parking can be on the forecourt or around the back near the bottle, but not on the nature strip in case you get booked.

It's on the corner of Giles Street and Canberra Avenue. The 'front' of the hotel is on Giles Street - see photo below.

If you go in through the door in the middle, and turn right and head along into the dining area and look for the book case on the left hand side, and a table of likely looking suspects.

The forecourt parking is off Canberra Avenue, or you can find a park further along Giles Street. And yes, don't park on the narure strip, you can get booked - as I did at the most recent AFF Event.

Thank you @get me outta here for organizing an amazing evening! It was my first AFF meet up and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Thank you everyone who made it to the meetup yesterday, it was so nice to put a name to the face and the AFF handle :D

The venue was super cool and the food was amazing ... I work nearby in Barton and I will sure drop by The Kingo for a meal or two in the near future. But it's a shame that the BBQ thingy will no longer be there, I can see that most of you were upset ... After we bid goodbye, @hossein_au & @harvyk mentioned about some good times they had at the BBQ place ... so it is sad to see it go away for good, apparently!

Thank you all for the tips on real estate investing. As a novice to investment, it was an information avalanche (didn't really know that there was a website called AllHomes, until yesterday, have always been a realestate,com,au guy :D) and I'm still working out some details on what was discussed yesterday. I can only say that I came out of the meet up armed with knowledge, that I would have not acquired otherwise :)

It seemed a long time between dinners for us and we had a great relaxing time meeting new member @Ade and the old friends. The Kingo kept strictly to the numbers of 25 patrons and cleared out a few lingerers. It got almost deserted later on. It must be hard running a business under these conditions.

@Big John, I think we must have been too busy sharing inside info on all sorts of interesting topics to be taking photos. There are some from previous CBR meets though.

Roll on the next one.

Photos or it didn't happen is the AFF rule for meet ups. With the general preoccupation of someone taking photos the lack of them may be a record.

Photos or it didn't happen!! :p

Seriously though, I'm sad to have missed this. Hopefully there will be another dinner when I eventually make it back to CBR.
We were too busy talking about how you weren't there, your plans to get into NZ and back to Aus went awry, what you must be doing in lockdown, etc etc. :)
