=; With growing evidence :evil3: that Australia :aust: is generally coming to terms with 'living with' Covid sign rather than slamming borders shut :out: every time someone sneezes, :terrified: coupled
with the 'planned' :roll: Covid sign Vaccine Roll-Out, targeted for completion by Oct., [-o< which is expected to give a high degree of protection by minimising the serious effects :happy: of contracting the virus, and
with Australia's steady march :walk: toward 'herd :moo: :moo: immunity', I think it's time :yess: to announce November's return of our Annual RAN Skilled Hands Sydney Rocks Christmas Pub Crawl Smokey...

:wine: Two years is too long :tchin: between drinks, :ouzo: and it's sad to waste a great graphic, so until I get around to fixing the :20on20: date, I'll kick things off re-using the last year's launch... :yess:

Footnote: :evil3: BTW, I was delighted to discover that upon booking my usual single en-suite room with :type: Cremorne Point Manor for two nights, the price had dropped from $268.00
($134.00 per night,) in 2019, to $174.00 ($87.00 per night,) no doubt due to the impact of the pandemic on bookings...! =;

Moral of the story: :evil3:
BOOK NOW :yess: (Book EARLY, book with your credit card, pay nothing up-front, pay on arrival, cancel up to 72 hrs prior, no penalty,) you'll get a GREAT deal...! \:D/

:yea: CONFIRMING THIS YEAR'S DATE CHANGES: :evil3: NOW FRIDAY, 12th NOVEMBER, to SUNDAY, 14th NOVEMBER. :yea:

Sorry guys and girls, Shep, Polly, Ellen and I will miss the run as we booked a Captain Cook cruise around the Lau group islands of Fiji about a month ago. We don't dock in Port Denarau until the day of the run, so it is impossible to get back in time.

I am extremely disappointed that Ellen and I will not be able to catch up with you all, but I am sure you will all have a great run.



Hippy Chippy's Footnote: :evil3: I have changed the dates to accommodate the four of you... :happy:
:yea: CONFIRMING THIS YEAR'S DATE CHANGES: :evil3: NOW FRIDAY, 12th NOVEMBER, to SUNDAY, 14th NOVEMBER. :yea:

Thank you Rick, that is great news. Providing they don't lock us up on our return, the 4 of us will be there with bells on. We are anticipating that Fiji will be in a travel bubble by then and I anticipate that we will all have had the Covid injections. So, off the plane, do the dhobying and on the piss with the drunks. :drinkers: :drinkers: :drinkers: :wine: :wine: :wine:
