And for those of us into noisy stuff……..


The Royal Australian Air Force will conduct several flypasts over Canberra as part of Australia Day celebrations. Flying activities will involve F/A-18 Hornet fighters, PC-9s and the Air Force hot air balloon.

Sunday 25 January 8.10pm Four PC-9s from the Air Force Roulettes will conduct a flying display over Federation Mall (between Old and New Parliament Houses) as part of the Australian of the Year Awards.

Monday 26 January 10.30am. Four F/A-18 Hornet aircraft from No 77 Squadron, based at RAAF Williamtown will conduct a flypast over the flag raising ceremony at Regatta Point on Lake Burley Griffin. The jets will fly at an altitude of between 300 and 500 metres and at approximately 650 km/h. The formation will then head over the eastern basin of Lake Burley Griffin where the lead jet will conduct a vertical climb.

Monday 26 January From 8.10 pm The Air Force Balloon will conduct a static display beside the central basin of Lake Burley Griffin leading up to the start of the fireworks. The Balloon will then reposition to the Commonwealth Place Jetty to provide a burner display during the fireworks that commence at 9.00pm.

Wish I could go Thumper, haven’t seen The Feldons in a little while.

This weekend, the Nationals for the Australian Battle Group are happening in Canberra.
To see what the Aust Battle Group do, visit – it’s radio controlled ships with cannons shooting ball bearings – trust me, it’s pretty frakken cool.
The battles take place about 10am & 1pm, Saturday & Sunday. Bring snacks, folding chairs and plenty of sunscreen and a big hat.
They’re held at the Sporting Shooters, one of the firing ranges on Hector McIntosh Grove (that’s the small track that goes off Majura Rd, roughly back toward the back of Eaglehawk near the ACT/NSW border)

There’s also a gamer’s convention all weekend at EPIC – Cancon. I not sure of where one can get details, but if you go to Epic this weekend, and see geek-types wandering around, follow them and I’m sure you’ll work it out.

I’ll tell you what’s on this weekend…


Rugby league fans among us don’t have to wait for the NRL season’s kickoff in March, there’s a trial match at Sieffert Oval this saturday! Details are

Canberra Raiders vs Cronulla Sharks
Sieffert Oval, Queanbeyan (entry off High St)
Saturday the 24th of January

Note: It seems to be the only trial match we’ll see in the Canberra/Queanbeyan area before March, so if you’re interested DON’T MISS IT!
