    Meetups are a good chance to catch up with other fanatics and find out we are all pretty normal. I expect this year might be our biggest meetup yet with Brisbane people getting a chance to join in the fun.

    I'll be looking to book flights and hotel in the next week

    My plan is to fly up Friday lunchtime and going home Sunday some time.

    Based on the fantasy forum talk there are a few people interested in a meetup that won't be attending games. 
    Saturday lunchtime seems to be the best time. Sunday might work too (I can probably book flights around a Sunday meetup if that is on the cards) Friday afternoon before the first game also an option.

    I'll leave it up to someone based in Brisbane to sort out best venues

    Post here if you are interested. And if you'll be attending games indicate whether you want to sit with the forum group or if you'll be going with other people

    I get in at 130 Friday arvo and fly out to Tassie Sunday morning. Will be sitting with the Fanatics both days I'm there and happy to go with the flow for the meet up outside of the Games.

    I'll be going to the games Saturday and don't live in Brisbane, so indeed lunchtime on the Saturday would be perfect for me I think. I'll be attending with my brother and sister and niece who I don't see all that often so I may or may not be keen afterwards depending on the day. I've booked my tickets already. Hope to see you legends there!

    I'm one that probably won't attend the games so Saturday lunch sounds perfect. Yeah with so many going to the games Caxton st I agree is fine. It's all so close to each other.

    Probably be wise to book a table for Saturday lunch once we have an idea of numbers.. assuming there will be a decent group, but that's a way away for now

    I don't really have anywhere you could sleep as we live in a tiny 1940s workers cottage with two dogs and our couch isn't even big enough to lie down on properly. Mrs would probably not be too happy.

    I’ll come for the lunch and the sit with the fanatics. But just so we are clear, by the time I am three beers in, the ref will have been letting ’em get away with it all day!

    This is a staple, especially when you're the away team. Who'd have thunk it but I love getting a rise out of the home supporters. I had whole pies thrown at me in Newcastle and we got beat by 30.
