Public Service Announcement – 31st March

By kaydo at 12:44 pm on Saturday, March 31, 2007

Want to make some geek panic for April Fool’s day? Try installing Microsoft’s own Blue Screen of death screensaver. I swear this is true.

I stole this idea from Wired.

Last minute: Queanbeyan Charity Rodeo

By kaydo at 1:44 pm on Friday, March 30, 2007

A last minute idea for the weekend, for those of you not participating in CIT’s African Drumming course. Apparently the good folk in Queanbeyan are trying their hand at this rodeo caper this weekend. I think if there’s one thing we learnt in our 3 rodeo history, its that its less hardcore the closer it is to the city. Bungendore rodeo had kids in hoodies, while the Taralga and Canowindra rodeos were all cowboy all the time. I’ve no idea what side of the fence Queanbeyan falls on, but maybe don’t wear thongs just in case.

Where: Showground – Glebe Avenue, Queanbeyan.
When: Saturday 31st March, Gates open 2pm – Rodeo starts 4pm.
Cost: Adults $15, children under 12 $8

Thanks Dno!

Some new ideas

By kaydo at 11:48 pm on Thursday, March 29, 2007

A few ideas for the next few weeks:

  • The Canberra Marathon is on April 14. I’m too lame for this, but there are 5 and 10km versions that I guess can be ambled. Stupidly they wont allow bike, blades or scooters, so much potential fun is gone.
  • The cycling track at Stromlo Forest Park. No need to wear lycra, but it might be a good little adventure.

Will place something in our swanky new calendar if there’s interest.

Also, you need to get tickets now for Warren Miller (the Friday 6:30pm session) and the Balloon Fiesta. It’s what all the cool kids are doing.

Big Canberra Bike Ride

By kaydo at 12:01 am on Monday, March 19, 2007

March 19th is the Canberra day public holiday AND the Big Canberra Bike Ride.  It’s a damn fine event, as those who participated with me last year can verify.  If you’re lame it’s VERY VERY like the tour de france, and if you can keep up with the main pack (i.e people on those silly recumbent bikes and children) you pretty much get the run of the road.  It’s like fame, without the need to be good at something.  Don’t do the longer circuit unless you’re capable of riding up hills.

More info from the Pedal Power website.

Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk

By kaydo at 12:01 am on Sunday, March 18, 2007

It’s on the Sunday of the Canberra day long weekend, so there’s little reason not to attend.  This is a one-time deal, you get to book a place and then walk across the bridge in your allotted window.  They seem to take the whole booking/registration thing quite seriously.  You have 30 minutes to walk just over 3kms, so most folk should be able to manage it.

For those that want to be smart, the point is that you walk on the road (which you’re not normally allowed to walk on) as opposed to the path (which of course, you are).  Embrace the fun.

More info on the Sydney Harbour Bridge Walk website.

Event: Yass Rodeo March 17

By lukeo at 9:00 am on Saturday, March 17, 2007

A rodeo is an event that separates the community.  Some people like them, some people think it is a cruel event.  Whatever your stand point is, you must admit that these cowboys must have balls of solid rock to get one one of these beasts.  If you are in the like it crowd, go to the Yass Rodeo on Saturday evening, 17 March.
