Revision as of 16:44, 31 January 2016

The seventh annual (except for the year we couldn't be bothered to get up for breakfast) unprofessional delegates networking session will be running on Tuesday evening.

  • When: Tuesday night (when the PDNS is on).
  • Where: Eastern Beach Reserve, just before the Beach House.
  • What: As is traditional, a barbecue! We'll be selling barbecued food and soft drinks.
 * Food: Barbequed food, with both carnivore and herbivore options, probably wrapped in a bread product. Possibly some sort of salad. We'll see. $5/head.
 * Soft Drink: Coke, Coke Zero, Solo, Lemonade. $1/can.
 * Alcohol: Strictly BYO only; selling alcohol is in contravention of various state and city laws, and we're too pretty for jail. Note that Geelong City Council laws do not permit alchol consumption after sunset — try to plan to be done about 8:40. (You can always move on elsewhere, of course.)
 * All (any?) profits will benefit the conference charity.
