That's right everyone... Us Perthians actually managed to organize a meetup, and it hasn't taken much more than a week's worth of not talking about it!! We have a date. We have a time, and we have a venue... AMAZING ISN'T IT!!!
It even looks like we're ahead of Sydney... Come on slackers... get yourselves together!!!
Here it is:
So whoever is in the Perth (Western Australia) area on March 4, 2018 (I know.. it's even happening this year!!), come on down to Whiteman Park in Caversham from 2pm, and meet some of your fellow Steemians there for a bit of social chit chats, and a chilled out afternoon.
What to expect
Leave your expectations at home....Bring the family if you like, your own snacks and drinks, and we'll just let the afternoon go its own way. No agenda, no keynote address or celebrity appearances (except @ryivhnn is kind of a celebrity here in Team Australia, and certainly an A-Lister on the Team Australia Discord), just a bunch of Perth Steemians having a chill under the tress and talking about whatever topics come up on the day (probably a lot of STEEM-related talk).
Why do we do this?
This is a great opportunity to get to know the people behind the accounts who you interact with, and who you chat with on Discord. It is just another great way to strengthen the community spirit within Team Australia, which is already such a great community to be involved with. Steemit is about community, and why not take that community spirit out into the real world and meet new people and make friends.
So far we have quite a good number confirmed to come, none of whom have ever met each other in "real-life" (except for those who have partners coming who are also on Steemit). So don't be afraid.. we're all in the same boat.
Spread the word
If you see any of these great Team Australia members, or anyone else you know from the Perth area, hit them up with an upvote and comment on their latest post, and tell them about the meetup we're having (point them to this post for details). Let's get Perth on the Meetup Map with a big one!!
Talking of maps... Here is the map of Whiteman Park (courtesy of google maps):
