    The biennial show is on again this year at the Exhibition Buildings, although the main entrance is in front of the museum and not from the Nicholson St side.

    When: Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th October 2006
    Opening Times: 10am - 5pm
    Where: The Royal Exhibition Building, Carlton VIC
    Cost: $15 adults / $10 concession (children under 10 free)

    Come along and say hi to all the Bicycle User Groups in the "Where to Ride" section, as YarraBUG are having a shared BUG stall (B3 and B4) at the show with our mates from BanyuleBUG, BoroondaraBUG, MazzaBUG, MelbourneBUG, MitchellBUG, MorelandBUG and NillumBUG.

    Also, this should interest a few folks - the SMH Roller Derby

    " .. On Sunday, 15th October, don't miss your chance to see Roller Derby racing featuring Australian sprint aces Mark French, Joel Leonard, Steven Sansonetti and Adrian Hanson. Also competing is Josiah Ng, the Malaysia sprint champion, and the rest of the Malaysian sprint team .. "

    Just having a look at the floorplan - ok, not quite a creche, but there's a Kids Bike Training Area.

    Quick precis - so far Bikesoiler & I are enjoying the "show experience".

    The mega-shared BUG stall is going off, with a excellent response from the public. Euan & Suzie have a greatly expanded shopping list. Or is that a wish list? I'm too tired to type anything of staggering significance after two rather intensive meetings upstairs this arvo. Oh, yeah, people absolutely *love* the CPF bicycle pins, wearing a pink one today made several little girls seriously envious. Sincerely hope the BA Show dinner, CPF Awards & drinks with Eddy go well, I piked out as I realised how flippin' tired we both would be.

    Back into the fray tomorrow morning, possibly further reportage later. ;)
