Weekend actionovich

By lukeo at 5:05 pm on Wednesday, May 30, 2007

We are back with the fun!
After some sickness, a few overseas trips and some landscaping, we are all back on board for fun this weekend.
Friday night is where it is at this weekend with Warren Millers flick. If you have not got your tickets, you can’t say you were not warned. Still might be time, so get on to Ticketek. If you do have tickets, meet us in the NGS lobby at 6:15 and join us for food and beverages after.

This weekend also holds the Rally of Canberra, which is a fine way to spend a free day. It gets dusty, so best not to wear anything white.

If you are after something completely different, Sunday at Glebe Park is the venue for the Traditional German Lantern Walk. Kicks off at 6pm. Find further details in our calendar.

If you have any other event that we have missed coming up, please shoot us an email.

By lukeo at 12:23 pm on Wednesday, May 23, 2007

You may have seen on previous posts that we at PANTS have been getting into some african drumming. I am currently involved in a 10 week drumming course and I am loving it.
If you are not familiar with African Drumming and what to check it out before any committment, then check out Drum Effect playing at the Kingston Markets this Sunday.

Want to learn to Curl?

By kaydo at 9:59 pm on Wednesday, May 16, 2007

Last May some PANTSters took a trip to Bendigo for 9 hours of non-stop hilarity that was curling. Now is your chance to join the fun, rather than hijacking a competitive tournament like we did. It’s more than just running in slipperly sneakers along an ice rink, there’s sweeping, yelling and lots of friendly sledging. Gold.

From the Victorian Curling Association (which PANTS hold a membership):

The Victorian Curling Association has secured the services of Sharon Delver who is the Regional Coach of the Okanagan Training Centre in British Columbia, Canada. Sharon offers consultations for teams and coaches and at high performance camps, as well as providing services to clubs.

There are coaching clinics to be held in Bendigo on the Tuesday (22nd), Wednesday (23rd) and Thursday (24th) of May at the Bendigo ice rink.

If you are interested in attending please contact us for the paperwork or contact Janet Cobden on 5441 1519 or janet@farmdesign.com.au

Yay for crazy winter sports and many many canadians.

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.

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.
