Station news this week is brought to you by the AGSOs (Aviation Ground Support Officers).
This week the locals at Casey were able to take a well earned break from their busy schedules and celebrate Australia Day. With the ‘interweb’ streaming radio station Triple J’s Hottest 100 as the soundtrack, it was a fun filled day for Casey-ites. The Wilkins crew arrived to help celebrate the holiday with us and a rather amusing time was had by all.
The day began with a brisk dip in the icy waters of Newcomb Bay for those brave and/or silly enough!
With the swim out of the way, folks had the chance to warm up with the annual hot dog eating competition. A tough task with a solid line up of contestants.
For those here interested in more active pastimes, the annual Australia day game of cricket was held on a chilly pitch with the occasional snow shower.
After a great day and many laughs, we were treated to a spit roast and BBQ feast overseen by our multi-skilled plant operators and amazing chefs.
Wednesday saw everyone back to business as usual but for one day it was a great chance to celebrate and reflect on how great it is to be part of an Australian Antarctic team.
Until next week…
