Gearing-Up for 2023

We're working towards another event sometime in 2023.

At this stage, we're looking for a suitable date that will fit in with Flashback Sydney and Syntax Melbourne. At this stage, it's penciled in for March 25th and 26th.

Venue Suggestions are welcome.

We are also looking at venue options. Fire Station 101 has been a great space, however, due to the changes experienced lately with the Ipswich City Council and Ipswich City Properties, Fire Station 101 no longer offers its space to events like ours, so any suggestions in and around Brisbane would be appreciated.

We have secured the Leichhardt Community Centre in Ipswich, but if someone can come up with something closer to Brisbane that's around $320 for Saturday and Sunday, I'd be up for discussion.

We're also looking for committee members to help us plan an awesome come-back. If you want to help out, please let us know.
