Now that I am in Sydney, and with Muzza running things in Brisbane, I’m hoping this will be an awesome year for DtoidAustralia! Our first event may be a bit later than I would have liked, but with the news that I’m expecting our first little Dtoider in September, I’ve been quite busy! We just have one event this month, but next month we should be able to kick off our movie nights and regular events!
For further information and updates on the following event please join our facebook, or follow us on twitter!

Dtoid Sydney

March 16th 2012
Destructoid's 6th Anniversary and Niero's Birthday Drinks in Sydney!
Who: All Destructoid members are welcome
What: 6 years ago, on his birthday March 16th, a young man created a gaming website, Destructoid, so he could get in to the media exclusive E3. That website built the community we have all come to know and love!

Although the official party with Niero in person is in the U.S, we can still show our love here! Let's get together to meet the new Sydney Dtoid Community and celebrate both Destructoid and Niero's birthday!

We'll meet at the Bavarian Bier Cafe in Chatswood at 5pm so you can just come after work! Feel free to get there later if you need to!

Looking forward to meeting everyone!
When: Friday, 16th March 2012, 5pm
Where: Chatswood, NSW
Bavarian Bier Cafe
1-5 Railway Street, Chatswood, NSW 2067

That’s all for March, hope to see you all there!
Love always,
Foo Liz

*****The following is a message from the Bale Appreciation and Love Establishment*****
Now let us join in Our Lord's Prayer

Our Bale, which art in Los Angeles
hallowed be thy name;
thy chainsaw come;
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in Gotham.
Give us this day our daily Batman.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive them that don't watch your movies.
And lead us not into Arkham;
but deliver us from injustice.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power, and the Equilibrium,
For ever and ever.
Amen
