WoT Meet & Greet: Puckapunyal (AUS)

Dear Tank Commanders,

Wargaming will be in Australia with feet on the ground in March to plan out some exciting events that will be coming up for our AUS/NZ player base later this year.

While in Australia, we want to take this opportunity to get to meet all of our AUS/NZ player base. We could put on a fancy well organised event for a limited number of select high profile players or we could have something more informal and get to meet everyone. So of course the only option was to do both!

Here is the details of the open to all, informal meet and greet.

Informal Meet & Greet

Venue: Puckapunyal Military Museum
Date: 10 March, 2013 (Sunday)
Time: 10am to 4pm (Day)

Wargaming will be taking a tour of the fantastic World Class millitary museum at the Royal Australian Armoured Corps base at Puckapunyal Melbourne and we hope you will join us.

Food & Drink

With Puckapunyal being an active millitary base, it is not possible for us to call in additional food trucks or get pizza delivered. Food Services provided by Puckapunyal Army Corps will be limited. It is likely the local Army Corps sporting clubs will be putting on a Sausage Sizzle.

Once the number of visiters are obtained, we will transfer these details to the Army Corps Base and get more accurate details on the food services they will have available.

So who's joining us?
