    Being interstate unfortunately means that I will sadly not make this meet. I will have to have a commemorative shave on the day in lieu of my attendance. I sincerely hope that as many as can make it as possible do so.

    Flights are booked - what a shame it is under these sad circumstances, but I am very much looking forward seeing you all (y)

    Unfortunately I won't be able to attend. I will definitely be thinking of Tim, and will have a special shave that morning dedicated to him.

    Top effort from those interstate that will be visiting (y)

    I do have to be elsewhere on the day for an important matter. However, I will find a way - I'll be there (albeit, I will need to leave a little earlier).

    Looking forward to meeting everyone and having a drink for Tim (Draco Noir).

    It was indeed a good meet, thanks to all that came along. It was nice to finally put faces to the names and also share a meal and a beer while in remembrance of Tim.

    Also a special mention to Alex, Tim's son for coming along. While it is quite still raw for him, he was indeed lifted by some of the stories which we discussed.

    May I take this opportunity to thank all that came to share in the memory of Tim.

    Firstly a big shout out to @alfredus and @Monsta_AU who made the long trip to Melbourne to be with us.

    To @Benjamin who we met for the first time. Thanks for making your acquaintance.

    To the swell crew of @Osman , @StueyB , @Volare , and @silver . Always a pleasure to catch up with you guys.

    Finally to the local and interstate Compadres who could not be here in person - our appreciation for your special thoughts.

    Tim would have been over the moon.

    A big thank you to @Lifes a Peach for organising the meet up. Those that came from interstate, @alfredus and @Monsta_AU, it was a great effort on your part. @StueyB , @silver , @Volare and @Benjamin it was great to see you all there. Also a thank you to the interstate friends that sent their thoughts along. I also think that Tim would have been over the moon.

    Indeed Tim would have been over the moon yesterday - it was wonderful meeting you all, what a shame it was under these sad circumstances...

    Special thanks to @Lifes a Peach and @Osman for organising everything, the royal treatment and most importantly for celebrating Tim's memory

    I had a top afternoon meeting you guys, thanks for being so welcoming!

    Unfortunately I never had a chance to meet Tim. Hearing some of the stories about him, it really showed what a generous and well respected member of this community he was.

    Many thanks to @Lifes a Peach and @Osman for organising this. I'm sure Tim would be happy.

    It is great to meet everyone and thanks for coming by, @StueyB @Volare @Monsta_AU, @Benjamin and @alfredus. Sure was a great experience for me to finally meet some of you guys in real life.

    I'd definitely hope that this wouldn't be the one and only time we meet up, it would be amazing to keep this going at least yearly.
