Card swap requests

Please post a comment below, let us know what you offer in return, and we will contact you after the meetup.

Cost

There will be a small charge of $1-2 to cover the room fee - final cost will be determined on the day.

Getting there

The library is in Carlton, very close to Melbourne University. From the CBD, catch any tram north up Swanston Street, and get off at the university stop. Faraday Street is on the right. The library is only a couple of minutes walk.

There are lots of cafes in the area, and you are welcome to bring food into the room (we need to clean up/remove any rubbish at the end).

Please let me know any questions.

Don't forget, the Grand Prix is on this weekend, so people may need to allow some extra travel time.

UPDATE: The GP is happening without spectators. That may mean lots of visitors now out looking for things to do, so it still may be busy around the city.

Regarding COVID-19, I think a small meeting such as ours is not a problem, but please bring hand-sanitiser if you can, and stay home if you think you may be sick (we'll send a card!).

There is a kitchenette in the room, and toilets nearby, so everyone can wash their hands safely too.

Hey gang

Looks like we will be a pretty small group tomorrow, as a couple of people can't come due to illness.

Some people might be a little worried about attending a public event right now.

Although many large events are being cancelled, I think our meeting tomorrow will be quite safe. The current information from the Department of Health is, unless you are sick, have recently come from a country that is heavily impacted, or have been in contact with someone who is confirmed to have COVID-19, there is no need to isolate yourself, only to take precautions with cleanliness, etc.

This guide is a great resource to understand when you need to take action and when you can continue as you are.

Large events are different as the environment is not controlled.

We will be a small group in a room with plenty of space. I will bring some sanitiser to wipe down the table, and there are bathrooms close at hand to wash our hands.

Also, I made a youtube playlist for us!

So please come along, and if there are only a handful of us, we will be able to talk more easily, and signing cards won't take too long.
