And the winner is….

Following last week’s Halloween fancy dress Kahoot! quiz, we can now reveal the winners.

Thanks to everyone who took part - we had a lot of fun hosting our first ever Zoom fancy dress event. Some of the costumes were great - picking three winners was not an easy task.

But congratulations to Audrey (below, top left), Justin (below, top right) and Hayes (below, bottom) - our three best dressed buddies.

We’ll be in touch with our winning three to talk prizes.

Pens and paper at the ready

That’s a walking wrap


We've concluded our Gig Buddies Sydney walks for 2020, rounding off things off in the The Shire. Due to Thursday’s (29/10) wet weather we moved indoors - thanks to everyone who joined Chelsea in the Oatley Hotel.


This year we were joined by 190 buddies as we undertook a total of 21 walks. We were thrilled that so many of you joined us for our treks in Coogee, Manly, the CBD, Lane Cove, Cronulla, Balmain, Watsons Bay, Glebe, Freshwater, Balls Head and Como.

A trio of newbies


While we’re equally as pumped to welcome our newest trained volunteers to the team.

Thanks to Scott, Danielle, Belinda (above, L - R) for coming in last week - we look forward to introducing you to your respective buddies.
