October Recap

Home / News / October Recap

October was a fun-filled, spooky month that was jam packed with a variety of events for everyone to choose from and attend. With the end of the year getting closer and closer, we will be reminiscing on all the memories we created together in 2023! If you’re interested to see what we got up to in October, keep reading and if you’d like to see what events we hosted throughout the year, go check out our monthly blog posts!

 

Some of our crew started off October in Sydney ready to catch the NRL Grand Final live at Accor Stadium! It was truly a memorable weekend away for those who went and definitely a tick off the bucket lists. As they did their road trip down to Sydney, they explored the Big Banana at Coffs Harbour and during their staycation in Sydney they went to Manly and took the ferry, they visited Bondi and had a quick dip, and even managed to catch the AFL grand final action at the pub.

 

 

Peter and Angel kicked off the month with the annual pride event at the Wickham – Big Gay Day! They saw drag queens, glammed themselves with glitter, and danced the afternoon away listening to a variety of musicians.

 

For those of us who couldn’t make it to Sydney, we caught the Grand Final action on the big screen at the Let’s Go! Studio. We cheered the Broncos on hard and celebrated their tries, although the end result of the game was not what we were expecting or hoping, we are still super proud of the boys, and we can’t wait to continue to support them in 2024.

 

With the weather warming up, our surfers have been getting keen to hit the water and practice their surfing skills. We had some new surfers in the mix this month and the regular attendees are improving massively! Soon enough we’ll be entering everyone into surf competitions….

 

To get in the Halloween and spooky spirit, some of us faced our fears at Movie Worlds Fright Night! There was a parade of monsters, a variety of haunted mazes for us to get lost in, and we couldn’t resist going on all our favourite rollercoasters at night!

   

 

Arakai and George spent a day at the beautiful Sirromet Winery and enjoyed an afternoon of sipping their favourite beverages and listening to their favourite bands. It was the perfect way to kick start the weekend.

 

Basketball season has had us all hooked! We caught the Bullets in action as they went head-to-head with Cairns Taipans!

   

 

Matthew and Zaide made their way down to Gold Coast to catch the AFLW Lions team verse the GC Suns! We can’t think of a better way to spend the weekend.

 

When October comes around, you know what that means… Halloween themed putt putt!! We put our golfers to the test and had them face all the zombies, skeletons, and ghosts haunting Victoria Park putt putt course…

   

 

Two Bullet home games in one month? What a treat! Our crew got to catch the boys in action again and this time they got to meet the team on their home court.

 

We are Laughing Out Loud and Rolling on the Floor Laughing all night long at our first Open Mic Comedy Night! It was definitely a night to remember, and we can’t get enough of everyone’s jokes, we will for sure be hosting another one soon.

 

Support worker and Artist – Zaide hosted paint n’ sip night at the Studio! Everyone let their creative side run wild and everyone finished off the night with a unique painting to take home. Everyone had to pick two words out of a hat and use those words to inspire the direction in which their painting will take.

Arakai, Dean, and Dane made their way to New South Wales to catch Willie Watson live at Eltham Hotel. It was a fantastic and much needed boy’s trip down South!

 

Pete and Zaide made their way to Suncorp Stadium to cheer on the Roar as they went head-to-head with Sydney FC. It was a great game, and the boys must have cheered them on hard as they finished the game as victors!

 

After a few months’ hiatus, our favourite trivia host – George, was back in the Let’s Go! Studio. All questions and categories were Halloween related – from scary movies to the history of Halloween, to horror movie soundtracks, and so much more! And to make the night even spookier, we encouraged everyone to come dressed in their best costumes and we capped off the evening with a cackling competition.

 

With the weather getting warmer, the crew couldn’t resist getting their toes wet and going for a surf.

 

Aaron and David spent the last weekend of October in Surfers Paradise catching the Supercars 500 races! It was a thrilling way to spend the weekend and the high energy and action-packed event had Aaron and David on the edge of their seats.

 

Let’s Go Bullets! Let’s Go! We caught the Bullets in action at Nissan Arena as they versed the Tasmanian Jack Jumpers.

 

We had a few participate in the Flying Kiwi Cup in the last weekend of October! They showed off their hard work and strength as they competed in a friendly weightlifting competition.
