    I guess it's my job to do these now! :)

    Skyforce is back again for 2007!
    Under new (or recycled) management, we've moved our events from Lidcombe the whole 10 minutes down the road to Bankstown Sports Club. We paid a visit to the new location last Saturday, and it's awesome. The Sports Club is massive, there's plenty of bistros & cafes, and while the hall we're using is a smaller room than we've had in the past, it has amazing facilities that (get this!) ACTUALLY WORK! :D

    So come on down on Sunday, March 18. Entry is $8 for Star Walking members, $10 for non-members, and kids under 12 get in for free.

    All the details are up on the Sydney Skyforce website at http://sydskyforce.starwalking.net/.

    Unfortunately I will not be able to make this one as it'll be only my 2nd shift back at work from Holiday, besides I don't think I'll have any cash having spent it all in the US.

    It's the day before I start my first shift at Officeworks Sydney CBD ... hence forth, I'll be there with bells on ... actually, probably not real bells. Maybe just a t-shirt claiming the dork I am, but not bells specifically. Yeah.

    As long as it's league or soccer, you're forgiven. :p

    I've updated the map on the Skyforce details page. It's a lot less confusing and clearly indicates where we are in relation to the train station (and just how massive this venue is).

    I [face_love] OUR NEW VENUE!

    Yesterday went really well. We had plenty on offer from dealers, some great bargains in the auction (I scored a massive bag full of Austin Powers action figures for $17!), and lots to talk about. What impressed me was that we had the most kids I've ever seen at a Skyforce and a bunch of new faces in the crowd.

    And why do I like the new venue so much? It all just works! The A/V system works a treat, easy controls, the staff are friendly, helpful, and professional, and they've got a load of cafes, restaurants, and bistros.

    Next up, 30th Anniversary event! :D
