Last time I was at Frisco's, January last year, my 20 something year old son and I had gone to the smoke to watch a one dayer. We were staying at the Royal Exhibition near Central.

After I showed my son the old hunting ground by walking from Kings Cross station down to Wooloomooloo we stopped in for a beer at Frisco's. We had a few and were up on the balcony about to leave and around 30 young women walked around the corner, all dressed in white, dresses, shorts, shirts etc and came into Frisco's and straight upstairs to the balcony. Turns out it was the beginning of a hens party and Jake and I were stuck right in the middle of it.

Well, about 10 schooners later we made it out, not long after the party moved on actually.

The Royal Exhibition was or may still be run by an ex LSSIG by the name of Nigel "Swampy" Marsh. He also runs the Zetland Hotel.

No shocking news on the Sydney scene over night, so we will have to await the Sitrep from Tricky a little later. :-k

I'll keep adding to the 'report' :evil3: as more pics :happy3: come in over coming days, but the three below came from Bob 'Tafmo' King's mobile phone, which he sent me this
morning, however we suspect that they got reduced in quality to facilitate transmission via mobile, 'cos they really don't look like 24/48 megapixel pics his Huawei mobile
phone
:mobile: is capable of, and he'll resent them via e-mail when he returns to Adelaide tomorrow... :yea:

Meanwhile, here's our obligatory annual group pic outside the 'Harbour View' Hotel for 2019...

=; As always, it's a pleasure to 'host' these Annual RAN Skilled Hands Sydney Rocks Xmas Pub Crawl Smokeys, but I want to especially welcome this year, three 'newbies' who've never been before,
Wal and Sue Midgley, from Port Stephens, (?) and Ray Finlay, from Brisbane...

:prayer: It humbles me to acknowledge :notworthy: that something that Ned and SeeJay and I kicked off 17 years ago, not only still attracts around a score, or more of ex-Nirimba types each year, including
wives various, but also appreciating that the likes of SeeJay and Jan, (from Cairns,) Tafmo (and usually with Rhonda, from Adelaide,) Doug and Brenda Green (from Brisbane,) and in previous years,
the likes of Viv Mcleod, from Perth, Mike 'Pony' Moore, from Melbourne, etc., willingly travel so far to be part of this annual event... :yess:
