This week at the station
This week at Casey: 13 September 2013
Yearbook group pictures
The winter crew season is slowly drawing to an end and it’s that time of the year where all the pictures and stories come together for the station yearbook. Here are some of the group photos looking back on our year here at Casey.
Jamaica! Ya, mon!
Last Saturday night, Casey station hosted a Jamaican theme party. Once again Scotty made a significant contribution to the success of the evening with treats like goat curry, jerk chicken and a pineapple upside down cake.
Tables were decorated with cricket bats, bongo drums and palm trees. Pictures of famous Jamaicans were liberally distributed around the dining hall. Bob Marley and Shaggy reggae tunes filled the air.
All those art classes with Allan paid off, not only did we have a handmade Jamaican flag but a Caribbean beauty to grace our Jamaican beach.
Green, yellow and black were the colours of choice to be see in. Curly black locks were the norm until they ran out. It was actually surprising to realise how many black wigs there were on station. But run out they did so when all else fails, dress as a penguin. Or in Matty's case, an axe-wielding Viking penguin.
The evening was concluded by watching the Australia vs South Africa Rugby match which worked out well as supporters were already dressed in green and gold. Unfortunately, the result was a disappointment but a great evening was had by all regardless.
All of the results were forwarded to the Australian Electoral Commission on Sunday morning to complete the process.
The Casey PR shot which was taken prior to Election Day has been picked up by a lot of media outlets and includes overseas as far afield as Dubai, Japan and parts of Asia.
