Barcham 26 April 2013 9

It’s the weekend!

Well it is for most of you, you’ve probably taken today off on leave.

Here in the mobile RiotACT bunker however we don’t rest. So let’s get to it.

Sorry the guide wasn’t up yesterday, but Anzac Day and all that.

Hope your dawn services weren’t too cold, and here’s what’s on for the weekend.

If you know of something hip and happening that we’ve missed, post it in the comments.

What's Your Opinion?
