What's everyone up to for ANZAC day?

I’ll be up at 4 in the morning getting the fires going and the urn n stuff for our campfire breakfast after the dawn service.
We do egg and bacon sangas on the fire.
Following that getting the Rsl set up for after the March, we have a small match and a service at 11 Then back to the Rsl for a beer and a snack, after that smash a bunch of cider while I yell at the footy.
Reckon I’ll be in bed buy 730 pm.

So what are you guys up to?

Going to the dawn service followed by the parade in Mt Beauty. Then start drinking beer and watch the footy.

A memorial shoot at the range, after a Service at 11 led by one of the current or former Servicemen in the club. The whole day and all funds raised going to Legacy. Whatever you get up to, enjoy it, for many gave it to you by giving all they had, Cheers.

Supposed to be going fox hunting with my friend but that might canned coz of her alcoholic mum :face_with_symbols_over_mouth:

Looking after kids. It’s a different kind of war.

Watch the dawn service on tv and then watch the parades for awhile quiet day in all

Yeah and one that can be lost quickly :slightly_smiling_face:

Make the effort to get to at least one dawn service whether is raining, cold or otherwise. All those Australian soldiers who have died in all wars deserve some respect. They died for you and our country.

Lest we forget.

I’ve been to a few…

I’m going to be slack too. Just watch it on TV then pack and head away from home for a few days for work again.

Hmm some people have to work. :disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved::disappointed_relieved:such is life. Worked Easter…I work everyday.

I had loaded some TB loads for the 308… but they were too loud so only shot a half a dozen

What’s work, @Gunmut?

Went to the local dawn service, as always. My great grandfather was in D company, 10th Battalion, and was amongst the first on the beach, he was badly wounded and also saw action in France once he had recuperated.
