Australia’s top scientists donned their formal rags for the the science community’s version of the Oscars, the Eureka Prizes. Ecolimo was on hand to ferry some of the guests. It was sold out weeks ago and the event has grown since 1990 when it was held in a dining room at the museum.
We were a driver down as Grant had a child with pneumonia and it was up to me to do one of the trips. Well so much for satellite navigation as I tried to find the best way via double bay to the AJC at Royal Randwick Racecourse where the event was held. How I wished that I had Wally on the blower, see previous post “its who you know” as I managed a version of Mr Magoo. Most of the time it’s OK but those Eastern Suburbs can be tricky for the veteran drivers let alone an imposter from the south.
