It's just over a week until the next Adelaide Steem meet!

Hello Steemians of the world!

You might not know about Adelaide. We're a sleepy, freely settled town, as opposed to the convict colonies that make up the vast majority of Australia's other capitals. We're entering winter, which to us is daytime temperatures hovering just under 15C, and night temperatures ranging from 3-7C depending on what part of town you're from.

If you're unlucky enough (or lucky enough) to live closer to the hills, or in the hills, it'll be even colder.

So how do you escape the freezing, grasping maws of uncle frostbite? You join us.

On Thursday, the 28th of June, a haphazard and large throng of Adelaide based Steemians will descend upon The Jade for burgers, conversation; and human connection.

No, it's not some sort of bizarre online speed dating event - it is a time to sit, face to face, with other people who post content on this platform; ask them how they are; connect, and have some deep, profound conversations.

It's also where projects can be born! I plan on having a discussion with @wildflowerjessi about a short film project, and want to get her, @stuffing, and eventually @alannapendragon (and myself) involved in some sort of collaborative art exhibition where the common theme bringing the artists together is the Steem block-chain; and so we can discover what tenuous, if any; links exist between our practice. Sorry for throwing this one on you guys!

(We could even register it as a Fringe event in a year or so, depending on how we plan this!)

As usual, @o07 will crack open the vault and have a piece of silver on offer as a lucky door prize, and the Steem mobile will be parked nearby. The atmosphere we experienced last time was magical - it wasn't a bunch of Internet strangers mingling - there was real human connection, bright conversation, and a sense of optimism in the face of a continued bull-market across crypto.

It isn't about bulls and bears, though. Cute creatures they may be; the human relationships are what really matters at this monthly meet.

Where:


The Jade: 142-160 Flinders Street, Adelaide SA 5000

If you don't like conventional directions, its tent.slick.mouse for the entry :)

When:


Thursday, the 28th of June, 6PM Onwards.

Why?


Get out of your comfort zone and have real conversations with real people.

See you all soon!

This event is an open invitation, so if you're in the area, drop on in. We'll gladly have you. Steemian, or not; you'll find some decent people here!

Nice one. I've resteemed from TA and linked from my post yesterday. I see a few new names to stalk as well.

Thank you!

When is Choogirl coming to an Adelaide meet? it is the largest in Aus afterall - maybe that should be on our strategy agenda :)

·
·

A) I don't live in Australia Nigel, so I can't just come to a meet-up.
B) The Blue Mountains Christmas party looks set to suck up all my Australia travel money at this point, so Adelaide is looking less and less likely in December I'm afraid.

psst I know that, just being cheeky

I hope the xmas party rocks, perhaps next year it will be in Adelaide, so our favorite AUS recruiter joins us :)

I think it should be in Adelaide this year, but it's not.

Doh! Matt isn't flying the flag high enough for us.. always next year :)

Remind me at the meet, Nigel. We'll throw it open and see what everyone thinks.

Will be good to have another catch up :)
Normally I hate going out but these meetups are the exception to the rule

·

Yeah, me too. There's a point. We're a team. Pulling in the same direction, holding a strategy meeting; instead of a loose affiliation of disinterested individuals manufacturing monotonous small talk.

·

Its just the burgers. Only reason I'm going to be there! :p

Sadly, I'm rostered on to work this time round. I hope everyone has fun, it sounds like a great event!

·

You'll make it to one eventually!

·

Whenever you can make it to one, it'd be great to have you along.

Oh yes I’m so down for a collab!! Will try and make it Thursday night

We got a new guy keen, too. @joshthomson has been lurking for a while and is planning to come meet us all.
If we can tempt @jeniwonders back, and @jordan.white306 braves the weather, we could make history with all (both) the TA new recruits in one place.
You're spot on about the vibe though.
Last month had a real energy to it. I was still buzzing on the weekend.
Also worth a mention, https://twitter.com/@mallsballers is up and running.
@o07, @holoz0r and I each have the password, so it should get a decent workout.
Fingers crossed the 2018 Silver rounds have landed in time and we can do some handovers :)

·

Would be great if they were landed! Hoping we get a great turn out again!

·

I'm hoping to be there!

I'm coming, looking forward to seeing you all again - Strategy meeting sounds good as well :)

Nice information....keep us updated.thanks

Sounds amazing!!!!! Definitely looking forward to talking!! 😁

I'll be there too. I hope to meet and chat with a lot more people this time.
The projects you mention sound interesting. I do need to find out a lot more about people's hidden talents.
