A trip to Robbos, some alternative cuisine and the inter-station darts competition all feature in this week’s news from Casey station.

Alternative cuisine

With our brilliant Chef Eddie off station a few weeks ago, Ali and I decided to cook everyone’s favourite culinary delight for dinner: Fray Bentos with mashed spuds and peas. With only ten expeditioners left on station that night, it wasn’t hard to satisfy everyone’s appetite.

Inter-station darts

Last Friday night we took on Macca in an inter-station darts competition. With six of the best players from each station chosen and the video link hooked up we started playing. Scotty (current Casey darts king) and Pete took out the first game with a convincing win. The second game, featuring Rob and Dan saw Macca take out the win. The third and final game was a cliffhanger, with Casey out in the lead early. After a few scoring shots on beds, Macca came back from the brink and took the win by one point.

All the best, Macca — until we meet again!

Trip to Robbos

With clear, cold weather forecast for last weekend, Cary, Matt and myself decided to take an overnight trip to Robbos hut. With the Trooper all loaded up with the necessary gear we headed off on Sunday afternoon. The mercury dropped overnight to −32°C, but with clear skies it made a great night to get some aurora shots.
