    Hi All

    There seems to be a fair bit of activity in other states, but nothing in Darwin!

    If there are any other Darwinites on here, maybe we should try to organise a meetup sometime before Christmas... What do ya think?!

    Ha! Now I'm feeling silly. I just replied to you in another thread!

    Good luck with this call out. I know we have a number of NT readers, let's see if your invite gets a few them out into the open!

    Let's hope!... I would love to create a bit more of a community feel here in the Territory...I get the feeling people here like to stick to their group quite alot.

    Hi CSM,

    This is a great idea. We'll put a shout out on twitter and Facebook for you and see if we can entice some folk to get involved.

    Love your work!

    Excellent! That's two of us :) Anyone else?

    I joined an youth (18-32y/o) networking group called Chamber Connect a month or so ago.

    It's run by the NT Chamber of Commerce and offers the chance for younger Territorians to network. Checkout http://www.chamberconnect.com.au if you're interested.

    Hi ozhank,

    Thanks for saying g'day, and sorry to hear that you're feeling lonely. Maybe you should start another thread specifically for Alice and see if we can find you any local mates to network with?

    As a newbie to Flying Solo, we'd love to get to know you better. Please start by posting in the introductions thread and also let us know a little about yourself by filling in your profile in 'Control panel'. Having a completed forum profile is particularly important to other community members and shows them you are here to participate openly and genuinely.

    Happy Australia Day :)

    Hi there! I'm in Darwin. Any networking is good networking I say, and it would be nice to meet some other likeminded small business people in our little city.
    COunt me in although I haven't actually launched my business yet - all the more reason to increase the networking!
    Cheers,
    Kristy

    Ok, let's do it!

    I can get the ball rolling by setting up a group on meetup.com, but someone else will have to take over management of the group as I am leaving town for a while late June...

    Any takers?

    There used to be quite a few in Darwin and there was even a visit from Robert Gerrish some years back.

    I am sure we could organise something easy :)

    Hi all - I'm in Darwin as well. Been a bit slack as I joined this forum a couple of years back but haven't visited in over 12 months (until today).

    Would be great to get together with other soloists here!

    Cheers,

    Hi all,

    Sounds like there is a bit of interest. I started entrepreneursnt earlier this year and held a Youth Entrepreneurs Get Together during October Business Month which had good attendance. There is strong interest in getting together with like minded people.

    I am happy to participate in meet-up or if it would be easier for everyone I am happy to coordinate a meet-up.

    In terms of timing, I couldn't do a meet-up before Christmas but propose the last week of January 2012.

    regards, Jason
