Sydney Meet Up

Postby Apples » Mon Jan 30, 2012 8:27 pm

Hi all,

I was recently diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and would like to meet other T1's in the Sydney area. I'm not sure if monthly groups already exist or if we can just organise it through here, but I'd like to get involved!

I'm certainly keen Mel. I don't think the Sydney group meets up as much a s others and pretty sure there isn't a regular meeting but maybe you are onto something...

Where abouts in Sydney are you guys from? Maybe we can try to find somewhere central to meet?

I live in St Leonards but can be pretty flexible. Somewhere in CBD?

Hi,
The last Sydney meet was early December 2011. Unfortunately, it was a low turn out. I

If I haven't already missed it, I would be happy to attend a meet in the Sydney CBD on a Wednesday night.

Hi all,
its been a very long time since I was on here but Im interested in meeting up :)

We could do the cafe's near the Central Station Eddy Av exit as there are a few places for food/coffee nearby and then walk across the road to the park to sit and drink/eat/talk?
If we end up with 8+ ppl finding a table in a cafe would be nigh impossibile :P

Also what time is good for everyone? 6pm?
This Wednesday (29/2 - leap year FTW :)), or next (7/3)?

Hi all,
I think we are better of leaving this for NEXT Wednesday as tomorrow is too late to confirm numbers.
To kick this thing off again I propose what I suggested earlier:

Date: Wednesday 7/03
Time: 6pm
Location: Central Station - Eddy Ave exit near the florist
There are cafe's and places to get food (or bring your own :)) nearby plus the park across the street to sit and chill out.

Probably a good thing we didnt meet up this Wednesday as it was raining (not that I dont like the rain I do but NOT for meeting up in a park hahaha)

Seems there are a few of us on the north shore :)
I'm going to try and make it but pray tell how are we going to identify one another sans an outwardly obvious disability!

I'd love to come to the meet up! If we all mill about the florist at the Eddy Ave exit I guess we'll figure out we're all there for the meet up. Otherwise, a sign...?

Hi there,

I would like to meet up but not 100% sure I can make it but I will try. If I do make it, I'll be holding a blue & white Novocare Record Book and looking very lost.

OK, so I'll be looking out for a NovoCare record book and a lost group of Diabetics will I? I will be coming straight from work but I have brought a change of clothes due to good summer weather, so i'll be in shorts and good old boat shoes he he.

Sorry for the late reply - four of us did meet up. We sat in the park and then got food in the city.

We should definitely organise another :)

I only just realised that you were planning a meeting - I would have been there if I had known.

If you are planning something, you can start the thread over in the main forum so that more people can see it, then the moderators will move it over here to continue.

anyone got plans for another event?

Hi, I'm 30 and was just diagnosed with type 1 last week after 2 magnificent years travelling the world. I was in Thailand at the time and thought I was just really thirsty ;-)

Would love to meet others to share stories, get more info and learn how people live, play, work with this condition.

Hi All,

I wanted to ask why Sydney of all has the lowest in-person meet ups.

I know from what my partner has said he has no interest in meeting to directly chat about diabetes - I guess for newbies it would be a lot better, but also if there are long term T1's, it would be helpful advice to new T1's...

any opinions on reviving a meet up?
