The Register's Australian outpost is having a party and we want ten readers to come along.

The party is a celebration of The Reg's first twenty years in business and also the fact that some new Vultures have touched down in Australia to help out with the commercial side of things.

The event takes place on August 14th at The Winery in Sydney's Surrey Hills. Doors open at 18:30 and close … well … we're not entirely sure when they close. Drinks and little nibbly bits will be on offer.

At the party you'll be able to meet and mingle with Reg royalty like founder Drew Cullen, all three local Reg writers and lots of industry folks who want to gawk at actual Vultures.

We're running a game of skill to pick attendees, namely a limerick competition. The ten best Reg-related limericks we receive will score a ticket.

You can put your rhyme in the comments below or send email to Reg APAC editor Simon Sharwood if you'd rather other competitors don't get a look at your genius.

We'll publish the winners in a story on Monday, August 11th.

Some rules. No, we won't fly you to Sydney or pay for a hotel. The prize is admission to the party only (but we are thinking of ways to do this stuff in other Australian cities and maybe even New Zealand). One entry per person. Entries close 08:00 Monday August 11th, Australian Eastern Standard Time. You must behave yourself at the party and can't bring a friend. Ticket is not transferable. Judges' decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. You agree to have your limerick reproduced in a story.

Any questions? Ask here. We look forward to your poems and your company on the 14th. ®
