Well, I've managed to draw in 13 other Melbourne based Nikon lovers at a meetup group - and that happened overnight when the group was first announced by meetup late yesterday. I expect that number to grow
I've invited them to come over here and to also look at the workshop being run and register for it. Would be good to grow a Melbourne chapter for Nikonians to at least 30 or more members, I think, don't you?

Thanks Robert, I figured if I'm going to help get this thing happening I'd better be proactive!
Well done, sounds like we might now have the east coast covered. we have around 15 members in the Brisbane area and I think there are around 25 or so in Sydney. Good luck with getting things started and I am looking forward to being able to interact with a Melbourne group.

Thanks Dean, apart from me there are now 15 members here in Melbourne. I've asked them all to pop in here. Hopefully some will and I've also told them of the workshops in Melbourne later this year.

I've got 24 members now and two photography walks planned (August & September). Working on getting them all to come say hi here and have let them know about Nikonians. I did see on a Nikonians reference page somewhere that there are over 2800 Nikonians who live in Victoria, so there is a potential for a lot more members.
So, if there's anyone here in Melbourne wanting to join in - the link is above near the top of this thread.
Update on our numbers. We now have 45 members in the Melbourne Nikon Lovers group! And we have 15 registered to come to our photowalk this Saturday afternoon at Ricketts Point. So thrilled to see this is happening.
Would love to join the group being a Melbournite, Dean from the Brisbane chapter pointed me in this direction.
Im not sure how many meetups I would be able to attend as family and my full time job take up most time, and I shoot some sport a few weekends a month, but if there was a chance I could, I would love to attend sometime.
Just found this thread tonight on one of my irregular visits to Nikonians. I have been a Nikonian for nearly 10 years and never met another Nikonian face-to-face. My logins have been irregular because I was beginning to think that Nikonians was mainly populated by US and European members. Now I'll go and have a look at the meetup group.
Hoping to put a plan together for a whole year in January so that members can plan ahead and plan to join us at our events
The last one was last week at the St Kilda Twilight Festival and another photography meetup group attended also. Meant there were probably at least 30 photographers there and some great shots captured.
