Is it something to do with Frank?
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Let’s work something out! After Jordy Raps commented on one of our Farr Side Cafe pics saying he wants to come in for a burger my chef son (in trying to confirm it was THE Raps noticed he was friends with Boyd! ‘Didn’t realise it was him but Shannons been in for a feed a couple of times’ he tells me...) those visits didn’t coincide with his off weeks btw

Sounds good GE, give us those juicy details.

I've been living in Brisbane a long time and I'm yet to see the boys win up here. I've seen Campo do his knee at Suncorp, but not a Raiders win.

Canberra Raiders fans unite... in Brisbane at the Hotel Lord Alfred

Canberra Raiders fans unite... in Brisbane at the Hotel Lord Alfred

Image

The Canberra Raiders meet the Brisbane Broncos on Saturday 30 June, so it is time for Canberra Raiders fans to again unite in Queensland! The Hotel Lord Alfred will be the place... and they have offered Raiders fans a very special deal for food and drink on the day.

The Lord Alfred was established in 1859 and the owners are resurrecting this beautiful, three story, six bar, eight room venue. Located 100 meters from Lang Park, The Lord Alfred wants to become known as the “Away team Supporters Pub”. On the night we will hopefully see the entire outside of the pub lit in green! Check out their website here: www.thelordalfred.com.au

The pub has booked the upstairs Verandah Bar for Raiders fans for the game day on Saturday 30 June. This room holds up to 250 people, has four large LCD screens, pool table and large verandah overlooking Caxton Street.

Image

Image

They are offering a lunch time special so as to kick off the festivities early. This is what the Hotel Lord Alfred is offering... all you need to do is wear some Raiders apparel, or show your Raiders members card:

250 gm steak salad and chips for $18 – Lunch special from 12pm till 3pm
Beer jugs $14, Schooners $7
All basic spirits $8

We will also be giving away a $200 food and beverage voucher which is able to be used on another occasion when visiting the pub. We will give more details on how we'll do that closer to the day.

All specials are available from 12 midday and post game to anyone wearing Raiders gear or with a Raiders members card.

The pub has installed high tech lighting equipment, costing $150,000... so they can certainly do it. One option seems to be to light the downstairs in maroon, and the upstairs where we will be in green. Or it might be all green.

The Hotel Lord Alfred has been really good with this... they approached us, and offered us the same package they've offered the Eels supporters group. We've twice had meet ups at The Caxton, but they've refused to do a single thing for us in terms of special prices or giving us a spot in the pub.

I'd love to make sure we get a lot of people along, given they're being so good to us.

It is a Saturday night game, 7:30pm. They're offering a special deal on lunch... and I'm thinking that people who come in early, before say, betweeen 12 and 5pm, will be the people who go in the draw for the $200 voucher for food and drink at the pub.
