Cricket and BBQ in the park – UPDATED

johnboy 23 September 2019 84

In the spirit of RiotACT events you all say you want organised, and rarely turn up to, I’d like to announce that the RiotACT park cricket and BBQ day will be held on 04-Nov-06.

Where: The park behind Fenner Hall (one block off Northbourne, South of the ABC)
When: 3pm 04-Nov-06

The park has BBQ’s, plenty of shade, and an IGA with liquor shop adjacent.

Esky for stumps, bat for ball, one hand one bounce if there’s a beer in the other hand, tippety run, electric wickets and no golden ducks.

If none of that makes any sense just come along for a few drinks in the sun with extra jumping around and shouting.

The brave and the strong will proceed to Loadedog’s Backyard Bacchanalia in the evening.

UPDATE: Just pushing this to the top of the page to re-acquaint you all with the concept, it’s this Saturday folks!

as to HOW roundabouts work

Jey Jey 2:00 pm 06 Nov 06

and then there was his later explanation as to roundabouts work…

Yep, after JBs attempts at coaching….

the yank batsman I believe

that was when the batsman caught the delivery and Che at wicketkeeper was none to happy that his job had been usurped…

This has to be a tagline comment:

“Leave the ball alone, if you touch it again I’ll call the union” – Che at the RiotACT Cricket Match November 2006.

… and I gave an underarm bowling demonstration worthy of Trevor Chappell at his finest. Plus we got to explain the rules of backyard cricket to a Yank, and piss off a bunch of international students from Fenner who showed up trying to play soccer. All in all, pretty darn speccy.

And the backyard bachanalia afterwards was a great night out – beautiful music in a gorgeous setting, with a grumpy french guy trying to sell you beer. While I had to leave early due to my freezing legs, I’ll be back for the next one.

Update from the cricket.

My lobby leggies got moosed around the park by Kerces although she wasn’t as happy when I cranked up to bowling meds.

Mael hit the pitch once of twice.

JB was sweating beer like a Munich beerhouse.

Che deposited the odd ball into the trees.

Hey folks, forgive my Brisbanic ignorance, but is this the park on Lowanna St, or the one further down on Girrahween?

Jey Jey 12:38 pm 04 Nov 06

It looks reasonable outside, was quite warm this morning.

Weather today is listed as Mostly Sunny – from the ABC site

Hooray for ‘stupid organisational questions’, it’s reassuring to know I’m not the only one who worries about these things.
Not that I was in the slightest bit concerned about cricket accessories, just in general.

Horray for your ass.

And, indeed, for your mutha.

johnboy johnboy 1:18 pm 03 Nov 06

have some faith, my ass is on the muthaf*cka.

simto simto 1:15 pm 03 Nov 06

Can I ask a stupid orgainsiational question – is anybody planning on bringing a bat and a ball?

Yes, I know somebody probably is, but I’ve been to events where the planning didn’t quite reach that stage…

simto simto 4:11 pm 01 Nov 06

Yep, the “turn up, burn meat, drink beer, get bowled out repeatedly” plan I’ve got seems much simpler…

Jey Jey 2:35 pm 01 Nov 06

Sounds exceedingly complex
