what I am viewing
A favourite program on television is Spicks & Specks, much much better than, say, Rockwiz, to pick another program at random. Spicks and Specks has a Facebook page where you can catch "unseen bits". Often even funnier than the show itself. The quality of an episode depends heavily on who the guests are, and last night's Specks was one of their best. Time out on a Wednesday night in the middle of a stressful week is always very welcome.

The return of the High Noon Meet
2010 will see a continuation of the popular ‘High Noon’ Track & Field meets conducted by Athletics ACT (AACT) during the winter months.  All athletes turning at least 12 years of age by 31st December 2010 and older are invited to compete at these meets.

WHERE:         AIS Athletics Field, Bruce 12pm-1:30pm

WHEN:           Sundays, commencing at noon on the following days:
23 May                        15 August
13 June                       5 September
11 July                        19 September
1 August                   

WHY:              To introduce new participants to athletics at the AIS Track, introduce ACTLAA athletes to the Seniors environment, and provide competition opportunities for athletes at all levels, including AWD athletes, preparing for high level domestic and international meets.

COST:            Registered Athletes: $5.00
Unregistered Athletes: $10.00 ($5.00 Gate Fee & $5.00 One Day Rego)
(An unregistered athlete is someone who is not currently registered with AACT, ACTLAA or ACTVAC and will be required to take out a one-day registration for insurance coverage)

EVENTS:        There will be a rotating program of events in the 90 minute time-slot similar to the Summer T&F season.  There will be at least 2 sprints, 1 middle-distance event, 2 jumps and 2 throws every 3 weeks.  Constants will be 60m, 100m, Shot Put and High Jump.  Rotation will be between 1500m and 800m, Sprint and Long Hurdles, Discus and Javelin, Long and Triple Jump. Other events included rotationally are the 400m and 3000m. Walking events will be meshed into running events.


  1. Woohoo! I'm at least 12. More chances for M50 track PBs over winter.

  2. "At least 12" is good. Means it would include most of my friends. Even Jen.
