Saturday 1st December we kicked off our 8th DDD Brisbane.
We arrived bright and early for the 3rd year at the beautiful University Campus in the Advanced Engineering Building.
The coffee team arrived early to caffeinate our volunteers and early attendees.
Registration opened at 8am and our attendees were orderly, patient and understanding as we checked them in and handed out their swag bags.
Thanks so much to all our volunteers that help out during the day, especially at check-in time to make this flow freely.
This year’s youngest volunteer was Ryan who quality controlled the boxes, greeted our attendees and kept an eye on things.
