Chugger bingo in Garema Place. Request for rules suggestions

By johnboy 1 November 2011 24


RiotACT Core Command watched the Melbourne Cup from Honkytonks on Garema Place. There was beer, conversation, fascinating women in fascinators, some sort of horse race, and… oh my… Chugger Watching.

From a safe position and with drinks to hand it’s the ultimate bloodsport!

She’s moving in for the kill, she’s got eye contact, she’s gotten hold of his hand… SHE’S CARESSING HIM!!!! OK, the brochure’s open, it’s the first attractive woman he’s touched in six months.. he’s reaching into his wallet… HE’S SIGNING!

The excitement is palpable and an endless source of discussion.

But surely we can make a proper drinking game of this?

Over to you hivemind, give us some ideas.

What’s Your opinion?

I dream of greeting them with a Wilfred discouragement… PIIIIIISSSSS ORRRRRFFFF. Works for Wilfred.
It would be quite fun to sit nearby (with beer) and hold up points cards, cheer and boo them, have a bit of loud and obvious fun.

Those magpie-style warning signs would be good, too.

I think this is how chuggers should be treated

They never bother me either. But I have a face that generally says ‘don’t bother’. A couple of them have misread my face and walked within 2 metres, I just look at them, say NO and keep walking. No one ever follows me or pursues it further.

These young ladies and gents never approach me. Every time I see them in Garema Place, they take one look at me and walk away… I guess the biker look is a little too scary for them.

Could I please borrow your face/leathers next time I go to Civic? These people make my attempts at getting to shops quite difficult. I think they sense bleeding hearts like vultures. Vultures with ‘wacky personalities’ and the sensitivity of barnacles.
