Adelaide Cup Day

Post by Bomber »

Nice that no NPL games on this year so I can go to the races. One of my favourite public holidays of the year. :D

Those who whinge about it, may as well start now. Off you go. :arrow:

I do find it funny that you get a day off for a horse race. Surely they'd be be better off just giving people Melbourne cup instead

I'm younger than you, or you've had a bloody hard life.

Haven't worked Fridays for a while now, my boss decided it just wasn't worth it.

A portion of it, but not a great deal. It's the first of three interstate trips I currently have planned for the year.
