    The Sydney event went well.

    It was probably not as well attended as expected (it wasn't jam packed).
    However, the venue was probably the main reason for this as there was a ridiculous queue/wait time to get into the lift to get you to the floor. As I approached, I saw people leaving (could not be bothered waiting around).
    Once you got to the floor, you had to queue/wait again to have your ID checked to get a wristband (for alcohol).

    The drinks at this venue were beer, bubbly (not sure if real champers), red and white wine, soft drinks, and water.
    Wait staff came around with finger food in the form of duck pancakes, chicken skewers, greasy deep fried spring rolls, rice vermicelli rolls, a sloppy chickpea pancake slab, deep fried greasy cheese aranchini balls.

    They had 2 tables with OnePlus 5 phones on display with a few cases for viewing/handling (so people who hadn't bought could check it out).

    On entry to the room, I received a raffle ticket and a small bag with a couple of gifts. Not the Aussie charger or adapter I was hoping for :(

    The guys got up and had a talk, a video was played with some messages/answers to questions, then Q&A/feedback.
    After that, a raffle draw was held. At the end of the evening, another raffle draw was held.
    Prizes were messenger bags, backpacks, and 2 phones.

    Hey, yeah I did and it was freaking awesome !!!

    They had Kyle Kiang (head of marketing), the head of software (I can't remember his name but he was lovely) and a few other guys to answer all our burning questions.

    If anyone's still deciding on Melbournes event today definitely sign up. it was wonderful getting to meet other OnePlus users and soon to be users. Plus the event setting was dope! They had excellent catering and many drinks :) But if anyone's wondering about prizes we all got goodies and Yes, there were Loadss of prizes ^.^

    For anyone going tonight I know you'll have a great time !

    So everyone got a material bag and in it was a t-shirt with a note book. I was actually one of the very lucky two to win a Oneplus 5 (mind you I have never won anything in my entire life so I froze when they called my number lol). They also gave away about 50 bags as prizes. That was including the satchels and those sick travel backpacks.

    So if I registered but haven't got an invite, does that mean I can't go to the Melbourne meetup???
