      These Forums are closing!   10/04/2019

      After more than a decade of serving this community well, these forums have finally run their course and it's time to close them down. That doesn't mean we want to close the doors on our community, quite the opposite!
      Our discord server grows ever busier by the day, and we encourage all Double Fine fans to meet us over there www.discord.gg/doublefine In a short time these forums will become a read only archive and will remain that way until they become needed again.
      You never know, it might happen.  There is... a prophecy. Thank you all for being part of these forums, and remember that the fun is definitely not over - so please join us on Discord! Love ya, Spaff, Tim, Info Cow, and all of Double Fine.

Woo! What a great afternoon! Super huge thanks to stars Brad and Nads for selflessly tackling the food situation, and apologies to anybody who got confused by the meeting point shifts (we stopped at the fallback spot until the rain cleared enough for us to migrate back to the BBQ area)!

I think we had 30+ people all up, which was awesome considering the torrential downpour that was happening when we were scheduled to meet.

I've popped the video from Tim and the team up in the first post, but to make sure that people subscribed to the thread don't miss it, here it is again!

Edit: Some photos (more here)!

Yay! We need more DF Meet ups, had heaps of fun!

Even thou the weather was rubbish it was great to see everyone brave it out. Great to catch up with some of the DF Aussie forum folk, thou I can't believe I missed out on seein' Capt D! oh well! Big thanks to Ron for spending time hanging out with us and Tim and the DF Team for the great shout out video which was a hit at the meet up.

I really want to get that photo with Ron when he rocked up to the BBQ area moments after I got the message from Cheese saying we were going to meet up at the shopping centre.

Ahh I'm back at home for only afew moments while I wait for my clothes to dry and my body to come to a normal temperature and I'm off to a 30th...

Can't wait to see some more photos!

Peace!

The one with the grumpy faces? Wasn't that on Ron's camera?

Great meet up, but my feet were soaking for the rest of PAX. Loved the crochet voodoo doll and the code wheels.

Good to meet everyone!

YES! I do believe Ron's quote was "We cannot smile in this picture"

Thanks for sharing, JackSlack. I recognize you from your comment, Cheeseness, Mimness, Bidiot Bales and Ron of course. I have no idea who the others are, but it looks like a happy crowd.

Gosh, so many people introduced themselves to me, but their names went right out the other earhole.

udoncat made the Guybrush doll for Ron

Brad is wearing a Gremlins t-shirt

Nads is standing up with his arms outstretched in the background of the group shot

redtape is reaching for a sausage in the group shot

I believe the fellow with dark curly hair (who didn't make it into many of the photos posted here) was named Nathan

And there are a couple of other people recogniseable from their avatars in the #DFBBQ Twitter hashtag (namely, me :D ).

If anybody's lurking around, say hi! I'd love to be able to put more names to faces :)

My name's Tim in case you were wondering.

Hey all, Brad here!

I am writing up the BBQ story for Aussie-Gamer as we speak, sorry for the delay, I literally have not stopped working/studying/fathering since I got back to the Central Coast (I made it back in my car safely, btw!).

I'll repost back here when it goes live!

You're totally welcome to use mine. I wouldn't mind a mention for any that are used, but I'm not feeling fussy - it feels silly to be precious about photos of a community event ^_^

I haven't even started on my PAX article(s) yet either D:
