We will be heading to a few theme parks and just relaxing by the pool before the Con, we have second row seats.

We have never been to a convention before, a little unsure what to expect but we are also deciding if we will dress up at the Saturday Night party.

We look forward to meeting you all, and having a blast. Cant believe it is so close now!

I just read there are installing a new spa and bar at the pool, which will be done before the convention.

Brad and Zoe

Default Melbourne meetup before con

G'day Purple Rose, I'm just down the road from you in Geelong.
I just thought it might be an idea if all us Melbourne people met up for drinks or something, and make First Contact before we leave. Just send me a PM if anyone's interested.

Hi Marissa from the suburbs of Sydney and from what suburb are you from?
I'm Marcella from the suburb of Beverley Park (close to Brighton Le Sands,Sydney)
lovely to know there are a few other aussies going to the con too. Yup in a month I'm leaving for LA, flying VAustralia, having a week's hol with anor Leaper (from europe) and then off to the con. Would be fun to be bumping into other aussies at the con, our accent is so noticeable over in the States.
What row are you in Marissa? Im in center aisle row 9 :-(
but def better than not going, which I thought I wouldn't be. Its pretty sad that our $ isn't as good as what it was last year.
looking forward to meeting other aussie leapers

Yay I thought I was the only one from NSW going to the con which really surprised me. I live in Riverstone that is in the western suburbs on the yellow trainline between Blacktown and Windsor.

I leave 2 weeks today and I still haven't fully planned everything and I have this feeling I'm not going to. Looks like I am in for an adventure and a big surprise.

My seat is A21, and I am not giving it up for the world. Thankfully I purchased my ticket and other things when the aussie dollar was a bit healthier. I seem to always travel to the states when the $ is worth between 50 and 65 cents!

I just read the post from Brian that says there is 11 aussies attending the con. We all need to get together and do something aussie like have a BBQ while we are in LA.

Can't wait to meet you.

There's a reason why we Earthlings keep you folks so far away from humanity.
