Revision as of 17:47, 7 January 2014

The Unprofessional Delegates Networking Session (or UnPDNS) is the exciting event that gets run alongside the Professional Delegates Networking Session. It's for everyone who can't (or don't want to) go to the PDNS.

We took a break in 2013 when running the UnPDNS would have required us to wake up before 7am. Now that the PDNS is back in the evening, we're back for 2014. Woo.

  • When: Thursday night (when the PDNS is on).
  • Where: Site 5, Matilda Bay Reserve, right next to the University. See this map for info.
  • What: A BBQ (to be confirmed). Food will be $5, and we'll be selling various soft drinks. Alcohol is strictly BYO only; selling alcohol is in contravention of Western Australia liquor licensing laws.
