We have again confirmed the Riverview Hotel for the now regular Sydney P&C Wet-Shaving meetups, if you have never attended before our meetup's are very casual and relaxed with an emphasis on there being no pressure whatsoever.
We tend to grab a bit of lunch, have a few beers or a couple of cup's of coffee and have a very chilled afternoon, it's a great opportunity for new members to come and say hello, pickup free samples, or ask any questions about any wet-shaving issues they may be having with a wealth of experienced hands always more than willing to help, share and offer their advice.
Most people tend to bring along their recently acquired soaps and aftershaves, their new razors and blades - in fact anything whatsoever even remotely shave related is welcome.
We have the big kahuna himself bring along a few examples of his recent timepiece acquisitions at the last meeting (now the bastard has me hooked on obtaining a watch that is no longer made). There is definitely a place for DE, SE and straights at the meet-ups and a chance to ask, query and enjoy!
APR Winter Fragrances!
As this meeting falls on the 20th May, this is of course the date that the Winter 2017 Australian Private Reserve Winter Fragrances drop.
I will again bring along both Soaps and Aftershaves as if people want them it is a chance to save on postage and to be frank, it would be bloody stupid not to bring them along and then expect Sydney people to pay for postage as the meeting is on the same day.
As was at the last meeting when APR dropped, the focus will again entirely be on a friendly get-together and not an APR event or official launch... I come along to see you guys as friends, to talk shaving and to see what everyone has been up to (and to what you have scored in the last month) rather than to sell soap and splash.
I will also bring along the new Eufros soaps, some Mystic Waters and anything else interesting I pick up in the coming weeks. I will post to this thread from time to time, as it's a good way to remind myself to bring stuff to the next meeting - I encourage everyone else from NSW to do the same, the more cool stuff people bring along the more fun we all have (and the more ideas we all get for stuff we want to buy).
It goes without saying everyone is more than welcome, be it from NSW or indeed any of the other states and territories.
