Day On The Green

Well Saturday afternoon/night was a hoot. Big Sis had a bus from work to drop us off and pick us up (brand spankin’ !). While we were enjoying ourselves, my cousin was working…

That in back left is smoke, he was on a dozer at a controlled burn off instead of at the show. Guess he picked a great year to start working for Melbourne Water.

Only downside of the show was the price of grog, seven dollars a can is a bit rich. Still I’ll go again.

    Next time you will have to smuggle your own booze in!

    What do you mean next time? Three hip flasks did the job nicely, especially with one holding Inner Circle 150 proof. That and by dusk they’d run out of soft drink, between the prices (light beer was six dollars a can) and supply a re think is needed.

    The prices at the GP were ridiculous as well. $4.50 for a bottle of water with no scotch in it!

    Bottled water is one hell of a rip off normally, let alone for that price.

    Wow! Got the ballpark prices going there! $7.00 for beer is highway robbery anywhere in the world.

    Good deal smuggling your own in. The rest of the day went well, I take it?

    Great day YDog had an absolute ball.

    Captive market prices at festivals, street races etc are always bloody ludicrous. Seven bucks a beer is a new level of bollocks though. Last time I went to the BDO (though a good 4 yrs ago now) it was still only five bucks for an Uncle Ted. (Translation: Tooheys Extra Dry). We’re a bit pissed off over here that Carisbrook (Dunedin’s infamous rugby ground) has jacked their beer prices up from $3 for a can of Speights to $5 for a plastic bottle thereof with marginally greater volume and presumably less aerodynamic ability (hence less likely to be worn by opposition wingers.)

    Gold Coast Indy had the idea, because the entire circuit enclosed a large swathe of downtown the bottle shops within the precinct kept operating – sure they were gouging the hell out of their prices but they were still much less than $7 a beverage, and you could walk out with multipacks.

    Doc if they kept the prices reasonable, who’d bother sneaking anything in? When they gouge like that it becomes a point of principle.
