Stuck for plans this weekend? Here are a few events to tempt you away from the couch and never-ending reruns of Friends and My Kitchen Rules. You’re welcome.
1. Live @ The Hut
When: Friday March 4, 7:oopm
Where: ‘The Hut’ – cnr Callandoon and Frideswide st
Why: Let the inner diva and rockstar shine out of you at Live at the Hut – entertainment for locals by locals. It’s basically Goondiwindi’s version of The X Factor without the obnoxious celebrity judges. Even if you’re not a performer you can tag along with your nibbles and drinks and enjoy some home grown talent.
2. Meet the Candidates – Toobeah
When: Friday March 4, 6:00pm
Where: Coronation Hotel, Toobeah
Why? Because local elections! Yay! Another chance to meet the faces behind the campaign posters and see what each council nominee has to say on important community issues. Recycling, tourism and nuclear waste have all been hot topics so far – what will this meeting bring out?
3. Sunday Youth Group
When: Sunday March 6, 3-5pm
Why: Have you got a medium-sized human sitting around at home looking for something to do on a Sunday afternoon? TUFF – Teens United Fearlessly though Faith are running a Sunday Youth group at PCYC for kids aged between 12 – 17 years, and includes activities, music, food and friendship.
Contact: Mel 0410 579 251
4. Dragon Boating on the river
When: Sunday March 6 7:30am
Where: The MacIntyre boat ramp, Goondiwindi
Why: Because upper body strength, anyone? What could be more relaxing than paddling down the MacIntyre on a beautiful Sunday morning? It’s $5 to join in and totally worth skipping the sleep in.
