South Bank Fur Meet
The South Bank Fur Meet (SBFM) is a weekly furmeet held every Tuesday in the South Bank Parklands located beside the Brisbane River in Queensland, Australia. It caters to furries across the Brisbane area and typically has an attendance of 50-70 people. The meet involves a $2 sausage sizzle, followed by a fursuit walk around the Parklands. It is run by a team of 8 admins, with two meet managers consisting of Flicker and Chloe Avonside. As of April 2016 Flicker is no longer on the SBFM Administration team, having stepped down to focus on personal projects.
SBFM held its first meet in 2015 on March the 27th after the previous weekly meet, CBFM (Central Brisbane Furmeet), went monthly. It was originally organised by Tsukare Kitta, with help from the current staff members. On August 28, 2015, Tsukare decided to step down as an active admin and passed the meet onto Flicker, Chloe, and Ashtonoir (Who has since stepped down, along with Flicker)
Location and events
People usually congregate around the South Bank Piazza until around 6pm, where the group moves off towards one of the many barbecues around the parklands. At 7:15-7:30pm, the group will embark upon a fursuit walk, usually returning after an hour. The meet officially finishes at 9pm. However, many of the attendees visit Ginga (a local sushi restaurant) and further socialise until closing.
