winterlude in canberra

By kaydo at 8:50 pm on Monday, June 4, 2007

It’s been a bit quiet around these parts of late. I’ve been absent from the twosixonefive – what’s your excuse?

Anyway, with June we welcome a stupid number of winter-themed posts and activities. You have been warned.

Upcoming coolness* is primarily around three activities:

  • Friday 8th June – RailJam outside Adrenalin Sports in Braddon. The JoinPANTS crew attended last year and it rocked. There’s a crazy ramp, lots of ice, lots of skills and stunts on display, lots of injury and, if last year is anything to go by, antics in underwear. We’ll rock up for the event and head to Civic Pub after the event.
  • Saturday 9th June – Opening of the ski season. Normally this can go by unnoticed, but this year there is SNOW. Season 2006 proves we cannot take this for granted, so a quick dash might be required over the long weekend.
  • Constantly – Ice Hockey – the Canberra Knights are still going strong. It’s a great winter activity, particularly when the outdoor temperature is a bit closer to that inside, less shock.
  • July (yes, the whole month) – Winter in the capital. The ACT govt loves you after all! They’re planning on re-using the vast expanse of bitumen left by the Cirque de Soliel crew for something other than futsal and will see my personal dream realised. It’ll be crazy cold, but we’ll get the chance to embrace it with Ice Skating, Snow ball wars and night markets. Stay tuned for the highlights.

* and puns aplenty

Also, its fireworks weekend. Have you got yours?
