Proposed: Islands in the city

By kaydo at 9:46 pm on Wednesday, January 10, 2007

I hate to link to, but sometimes sensationalist journalism has good ideas.  I propose an island adventure in Sydney a la:,23483,21026128-27977,00.html

It’s probably only a good idea if you like fun.  The kayak based one looks grand.  Register your interest in the comments or email

Event: World Long Distance Triathlon 2006

By kaydo at 8:00 am on Sunday, November 19, 2006

19/11: Um wow.  So apparently Canberra is hosting the world long distance triathlon for 2006 and its on the 16th of November.  Too late to start training?  Well I guess if the swim leg is in Lake Burley G, chances are I’m fitter now than I would be if I touched that water.  Anyway, could be quite a spectacle, check it out:

Event: Canberra Nara candle festival

By joinpants at 10:00 am on Saturday, October 21, 2006

21/10 All day event: The crazy thing is, I was always taught at school that Canberra had a sister city and that it was Nara, Japan.  My interest didn’t extend much beyond this fact, as I didn’t much care for whatever this meant.  Turns out sometimes sister cities can bring entertainment from afar.  Yes, afar.

Location: Canberra Nara Park, Lennox Gardens, Yarralumla 

More info from the Rydges website.

proposed: world long distance triathlon

By kaydo at 6:32 pm on Monday, October 9, 2006

Nope, I’m not suggesting any of us participate (though its on 16/11 19/11 if you want to check out the calendar entry for more details), but I think volunteering could be cool.  Think Kramer at the US Open.  There’s always the chance you’ll accidentally do something helpful.

More details are online as usual.

Edit: Got the date wrong.  It’s the 19th.  I was close.
