RiotACT 5th Birthday celebrations

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away (the living room of JB’s parents house about 5 years ago) a bunch of guys with not much else to do and a passing interest in IT dreamed up a website where we could grandstand to our hearts content about issues affecting us as Canberrans.

Several of those intrepid souls have fallen by the wayside and those stalwart few who remain have matured in to sometimes upstanding members of the Canberra community with valued opinions, and at other times drunkards riding bikes around North Canberra pubs. Suffice to say we’ve had a great time doing it, and really appreciate those of you who have tuned in to read about it and share your own pearls of wisdom.

In recognition of 5 years or RiotACT’s existance we’re holding a birthday bash this coming saturday at one of those very same North Canberra Pubs that we love. Those of you who feel well enough to join us for a drink are all more that welcome to do so and will catch us at :

All Bar Nun from 5pm onwards, Saturday 26 November.

Presents are optional.

bugger, back to the ole’ drawing board…

“Better still, tell me where you got them – I’m after some”
-just ran them up on the Singer, dahling!

I’ll bring the bongos.

I hope that Simon Corbell, Roland and our other local government representatives also feel welcome to come and meet some of the people behind the opinions that make this site so popular.

That’s what I play in Canberra all the time (Thinks: i was wondering when someone would play the pun. Hehe i like this game, you rotten swine you)

don’t try and find anyone – just sit there in the corner and let the rest of the riotACT crew play spot the wog.



All Bar Nun is at the O’connor shops. Get in a cab and say ‘All Bar’. Sorted.

i’m a recent addition i’ll be there though, it’ll be my b’day. Just need to know where the All bar nun is

I’m tempted to turn up just to see the handlebar mostauche 😉

Blue Jeans, White shirt, gold in the pocket.

I apologise in advance, I look like a 70’s pornstar (clean your pool anybody?) at the moment.

Better still, tell me where you got them – I’m after some

No No, bring the hotpants!

Sh*t! And I’ve just washed my pink bandana and silver hotpants for the occasion…
Never mind, I can rustle up a blue beret, white shoes and gold lame shorts. If I get past the bouncer, give me a collective (limp wristed) wave.

Theme can be blue white and gold.

I shall be wearing a hawaiian shirt that fits the bill

Indeed I am bonfire, but I’m much more partial to a cup of coffee.

congrats in advance Geoffco!

SGS are you old enough to imbibe ? I would have thought you would take every opportunity to avoid further ‘glassing’.

i suggest that some form of group id be used. fer instance – one of those bicycle flags or everyone wearing red etc.

Finally, a RiotACT event I can make it along to! Oh hang on… I’m getting married that day. Doh! Next time for sure 🙂

no fairy bread??

*blossy sticks out her lower lip*

no fairy bread or pass the parcel blamemonkey. you will have to settle for pass the jug and beer battered chips

Man here I was thinking it was going to be on Sunday…tis 21st season you know!

However I think I can make it for a while but early.

Will there be fairy bread and pass the parcel like any good five year olds birthday bash??

That depends if I do my washing bloss…

are you going to wear your checked shirt ssanta?

do we need to bring bikes?

I very much doubt there is any chance that we wont still be there for hours and hour and hours

…and for those of us, like Thumper and me, who occasionally get roped into a cricket match, 5.00 is mighty early. Hope you’ll all be around come 8.00? And how do we recognise you? JB facemasks, or checked shirts?

Hmmm, Saturday, always a tough day for me to go anywhere, it is the busier day of my weekend. I might be there, no guarantees though.
