These are our upcoming events:
December Trading Day

24 Pulle St, Yeerongpilly at the Underwater Research Group of Qld Inc.
This is our last meeting of the year. Come along to trade, meet others, learn more about community exchange, and celebrate the year’s end.
THIS IS A CHANCE TO DO YOUR SHOPPING FOR GIFTS AND OTHER HOLIDAY NEEDS WITHOUT SPENDING A CENT.
Bring what you can in goods and services to trade. Bring a plate of nibbles to share.
All welcome! Bring friends and other visitors.
HINT: Smart traders browse our lists of offers & wants in advance and arrange to meet the trader at the meeting to hand over the goods.
DECEMBER IS SPONSORSHIP MONTH
Existing members may sponsor a new applicant any time in December. The beginner joins for free while the sponsor pays the joining fee as 20u instead of $20.

We are pleased to announce that we have secured a new location to hold our trading days on the regular 3rd Sunday of the month through to July 2018.
It is a large attractive hall in a quiet spot with easy parking. We look forward to building our relationship with BOGI (Brisbane Organic Growers Inc) who rent out the building. (As we are hiring the venue, a gold coin donation at the door would be appreciated until we can negotiate LETS units payment.)
Come along and check it out. Carpool with others in your neighbourhood.
We hope to add further venues in various locations around Brisbane so please let us know if you are interested in being part of organising this for your locality.
Now we have a regular trading venue, we would like to concentrate on the experience to attract both sellers and buyers. So we would like to include some workshops and presentations to add interest. Do you have a suitable skill to share? Send in your requests too – perhaps you would like to learn a cooking or gardening method, hear about solar or wind power, permaculture, essential oils, linux & opensource software, dumpster diving, starting a cooperative, bitcoin, or something else …?
We are also working on some other concepts to showcase what BRISLETS can offer, so stay tuned …
CONTACT: Our Events Coordinator Andrew Gaydon (BLCE1498) – for all your trading day suggestions.
LETS Unconference 8 March 2018
Adelaide LETS is hosting this just before WOMAD 2018. This one-day ‘unconference’ is basically a conference with a predefined topic and attendees come with a presentation prepared. Everyone gets a chance to ‘have a go’. For the benefit of interstate members who may attend Adelaide events during ‘Mad March’, they hope that accommodation will be available with LETS members to keep the dollar costs down to a minimum.
