There must be one or more pubs in every street.......so that won't be a problem. the problem will be finding your way back to your lodgings

Mr. C
01-24-2002, 10:35 AM
That's fascinating Olie!
I can honestly say, I have never seen a one-way dirt road.

Olie
01-24-2002, 10:37 AM
lol
it's not wide enough for more than one car at a time so they made it a one way track

Mr. C
01-24-2002, 10:45 AM
What's up? They run out of dirt?

36 pubs for a pub crawl, geez that would take some effort. I'm usually spent by about the 5th. :D

Olie
01-24-2002, 10:53 AM

Kay
01-24-2002, 11:30 AM
At least there are enough pubs to make the rounds of........... just think getting banned from one pub.........go to the next and by the time you have completed all of the pubs the first one should allow you in again ;)

Beefy
01-24-2002, 11:37 AM
OMG.. olie, you do realise how expense something like that could be?!?!? I'm there!!!

This deserves a thread of it's own though... a sticky.. :)

Kay
01-24-2002, 11:47 AM
Putting the date down on the calendar now...........good idea Beefy we need this one as a sticky.............by the way Olie how much is your father willing to pay out on this venture :devil:

Beefy
01-24-2002, 11:48 AM
at least $500 per head....

Kay
01-24-2002, 11:56 AM
sounds about right to me.......after all it is only for one night isn't it? :D

Beefy
01-24-2002, 11:58 AM
i hope so.. anything after that will need at least $50 a head/hour

Kay
01-24-2002, 12:08 PM
Well that all depends on what hour of the night the pubs shut of course, after midnight should be double time and a half of course :devil:

Beefy
01-24-2002, 12:09 PM
i wouldn't go that far...

Kay
01-24-2002, 12:13 PM
Well how about double time? :?:

Beefy
01-24-2002, 12:16 PM
time and a half at most.. don't wanna make olie's dad go broke... do we?

Kay
01-24-2002, 12:30 PM
Well actually by that time, most ppl will have slowed down a tad ;)

Beefy
01-24-2002, 12:32 PM
never! not if I can help it...

Kay
01-24-2002, 12:45 PM
Well in that case I will be there to watch :cackle: http://www.theunholytrinity.org/cracks_smileys/otn/party/bdaywink.gif

Olie

lol

you crazy fools

how much he pays depends on how many come ;)

Kay
01-24-2002, 09:30 PM
Oh, so if you don't invite any of your friends and just us he might just have enough money to cover the drink bill right? ;)

Slamo
01-25-2002, 04:59 PM
I am in a bit of a predicament :(

I wanted a course at Ballarat Uni more than the one at Bendigo but I applied for it directly and not through VTAC.
I was left with two options:

1) Accept the Bendigo course and go down and enrol on wednesday, buy all my books (lots of money), and then I would find out if I've been accepted into Ballarat Uni afterwards and wouldn't be able to do it because I had already bought all my books at Bendigo.

2) Reject the Bendigo course and hope for the best with the Ballarat course (quite a gamble) but as I want the Ballarat course more I wouldn't have already spent lots of money if I wanted to reject the Bendigo course later. This option in turn could leave me with absolutely nothing.


But, as I am a gambling man (as Tweak knows well), I took option 2. So now I am praying that I get a letter from Ballarat Uni so that I can get into the course that I really want to do.

I had until noon today to choose so I can't change my mind now. Option 2 it is.

Congrats Slamo, I think you've made the right choice, you need to do something you want to do, or there is not much point in it.

Slamo
01-31-2002, 10:41 AM
Not unless I get a second round offer (unlikely) i will be completely screwed

Kay
01-31-2002, 10:49 AM
what about deferring it for a year? if no 2nd chance is given?
