After some discussion over the logistics of such a feat, we have decided to run a forum/conference/get together for Australian and any Kiwis who might be intersted in travelling to Sydney over the weekend of 23 and 24th of October 2004, therefore it will run in parallel to the Blender Conference in the Netherlands but not be specifically linked to it.

Now its in its early stages of planning so beyond these details we are still working on the plan
Oh and if you want to come and have transport problems or whatever then PM me anyways and we will do the best we can to sought something out...ill even write you a permission note for your parents

we would love to get a nice group together for a what promises to be a fun weekend so come along if you can.

hey guys,

It's time!! finally after months talking about it and then organising (hours of STD phone

calls :P), Australia now has its own conference. Enter BlenderConf.AU 2004.
Details-

Location : Sydney
Date : October 23th and 24th
Venue : YHA Sydney Central
Accomodation : YHA Sydney Central

Whilst the conference actually starts on the Saturday we would encourage people to be there Friday night for drinks and the usual get-to-know-you's.
There will be a cost involved, at this time thats still being finalised, however somewhere around $50 will probably be likely to cover costs of the venue and other incidentals. And the accomodation is $31 per night.
At this stage we are looking definite committments however as long as we are notified by the end of August, if you are coming then expressions of interest are fine. Any other questions can be directed to the organisers by emailing us at blenderconfau@hotmail.com. If you are interested in coming then please also send us an email containing your name and address, as we need to mail out disclaimer forms, and payment details etc. We have included a template at the end of this message. Thanks guys and we hope that as many of you come as possible for it will surely be a great event, and memorable since its the Inaugural BlenderConf.AU.

Tim & Levon
