It’s time for another movie night after the lolfest that was the first installment.
This time we’re running it in conjunction with the good people at The Electron Workshop and we’re going to have a BBQ for those that are interested!
Tickets are not required but there will be a coupla gold coins for refreshments (NO BYO PLEASE) and said BBQ, as well as a cheeky raffle for a yet to be determined prize.
This will be lowkey, relaxed, but heaps of fun. bad commentary will be welcome as well as the appropriate oooohs and aahhhhhs when required from the sublime directing from whichever film we decide to watch (i may even have multiple options and put it to a vote/trackstand comp!!)
So come on down to The Electron Workshop on Wednesday May 22nd for part two of the FOA Movie Night.
ROBBIE MCEWEN WILL EVEN BE …
Unfortunately, due to poor timing and a lack of numbers, this event was cancelled.
However, Rolly and dead legs ventured out to The Upper Yarra Reservoir Park regardless and had a great time.
For a full write up and some pics, please see here
We will try to run this event again, just with more notice and a slightly revised route
FOA is proud to announce it’s first ever sleepover!!!
Join us for a supported overnight camping trip to the Upper Yarra Reservoir Park on Saturday April 27th.
Just bring all your gear to the roundabout at the rear of Fed Square at 8am (SHARP) on the 27th of April and we’ll take it for you, allowing you to enjoy the cruisy ride to the park. The ride is approximately 65km (sealed) or 85km (unsealed) from Lilydale and there will be a sealed and …
Meeting 6.30pm at Fed Square for the Wednesday Night Ride, we’ll then roll over to Long Play for a drink/quick bite to eat, then project the films. We’ll be hoping to show 2 movies on the night (time permitting).
Film 1 will be a doco.
Film 2 will likely be an old classic to get everyone amped for the ride home.
Where – Fed Square – 6.30pm SHARP for a 6.45pm roll out
Long Play – 7.15pm onwards
First film will start at 8pm SHARP
If you miss out on tickets, come down to Long Play anyway and have a few drinks, let the vortex wash over you, then party on with those that are up for it once the films are done.

This is my Brisbane Outdoor Gear Chunky Toad backpack.
You’ve likely heard me talking these up before, but it’s about time I gave this one a proper review for anyone thinking about getting themselves a new pack.
This pack was kind of a long way coming, as my shitty old Gravis backpack was always destined to self destruct once I started cycling and packing it full of tools and d-locks etc.
BOGear was pretty much my first port of call after my Papermunky messenger bag had already treated me so well.
Quick email to Dave at BOGear to ask him what my options were and, within 3 days, I was hooked up with one of the original Chunky Toad “tester” bags. The tester bags were distributed amongst trusted individuals to use and “dirtify” in order to find their limits and which parts needed tweaking …
