I hate to burst your bubble here, but there are quite a few people in WA and quite a few on the east coast.

There would be flying involved :P

I've flown all over the place to meet people, but I'm trying to save up to go to Canada again, so that is my priority at the moment.

Speaking of which Emma, I demand that you tell me exactly when you're going to be going to Canada again, so that I can arrange to be within' striking distance (a.k.a Boston). During the general time you're there, so that I might arange to run up for a day or something.

Deal.

Posted Sun Apr 17, 2005 7:25 pm:

To expand on my previous post, I think there are pockets of RLFers in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

So unless it's going to be a meet for just the Sydney people or whatever, I can't see it working if nobody is willing to fly anywhere.

One of the Kiwi barmaids I work with has failed to provide me with a promised U2 ticket.
Now I know that's not Australia's responsibility as such, but I'm in a bad mood with the Antipodes anyway :evil:

Also, do it as far in advance as possible, so I can buy cheap plane tickets, I'm never geting on the bus again.

Another Brisbanite here...that's enough people to get drunk with and feel awkward around, I say. I can (maybe) bring along another two fans, who aren't on the forums. They may one or two more, almost definitely do actually. So what's the deal...I've never done a meet before.

Well I am trying to get Greg invited to Animania in October. So we can all meet up in Sydney if that comes through. You might want to run over to their site and e-mail them. Let them know that you would be interested in having Greg there. Thats what they are waiting on. They are trying to decide if inviting Greg is going to bring in enough attendees.

Awesome! I'll put a word in, and tell all my mates who read RL to put a word in too, I'd love to see you guys!

Just means I'll fly down a week earlier for Animania and hang in Sydney for another week til Supanova.
