I think you are still harbouring some issues from a few years back. Just my opinion. Glass half empty more often.The whole pretence of Jindabyne localism is sad and pathetic.
Its been a common thread since we towed the caravan from Berridale to Jindabyne in 1995.
The town is pretty toxic in many ways.
Yeah nah.I think you are still harbouring some issues from a few years back. Just my opinion. Glass half empty more often.
I grew up through my teenage years in Surfers Paradise, tourist capital of Oz at the time. We loved tourists, they provided our parents with jobs and stuff. However, when we were out on the town (yes, widely encouraged by everyone except parents) and the tourists were drunk, think lots of footy clubs, bucks weekends, Brisso's looking for a quickie etc, we (locals) rallied together for safety purposes. It was a real thing; for real reasons. As teenagers become young adults and then parents, there might be some carry over of the term "local" that loses is meaning?Nah. Locals are a'holes. So are tourists. So are all the blowins.
Hot girls are ok but everyone else can ggf'ed.
So it's true. Those hick town folk are only allowed to breed within?I grew up through my teenage years in Surfers Paradise. We loved tourists, they provided our parents with jobs and stuff. However, when we were out on the town (yes, widely encouraged by everyone except parents) and the tourists were drunk, think lots of footy clubs, bucks weekends, Brisso's looking for a quickie etc, we (locals) rallied together for safety purposes.

Not a Jindy local until you‘ve been to Jindabyne Brewing and caught Covid. Until then your a blow in.Went to town to get some supplies, had a few nice chats, no trouble parking, no queue in Woolies, smiles at the post office, lovely happy hour beer at Banjo, a pleasant drive home although the dirt road is a bit borked from the rain.
Dunno ..... seems a pleasant enough place

Jindabyne snow sport centre revamp to support
future Winter OlympiansA million-dollar mega donation from a snow sport enthusiast is expected to help send generations of Australian athletes to the Winter Olympic Games.
With the Beijing Games just around the corner, Australia’s future Winter Olympians have secured a huge win thanks to a mega donation from businessman John Hancock.
Snow Australia has Mr Hancock to thank for its new national snow sport training centre revamp after the grandson of mining magnate Lang Hancock donated more than $1 million to secure its development.
The cash looks to be well spent, going toward housing a high performance training as well as a sports medicine and recovery unit.

“I am delighted to now be in a position to help an even wider group of Australian athletes and sports professionals achieve success on the snow,” he said.
“Anyone using the new NSTC will be able to access world-class facilities and develop the skills, fitness and athlete services that are required to be successful both on snow and in life.
“Skiing has given so much to our family and I’m thrilled to give back in this way.”

Snow Australia CEO Michael Kennedy said the project would benefit generations of Aussie hopefuls and the connections the Hancocks forged watching the Freestyle World Cup in America inspired the cash donation.
“John and his family had the opportunity to meet the athletes and watch them in action on the world stage. They were so inspired by what they had experienced that they pledged then and there to support the next generation of Australian snow athletes,” he said.
Progress. Enjoy. It.Makes me feel so much better knowing we got the best slide jump and spin and stay uprighters in the world. My mental health is all the better for it. Such a good spend.
This country sure does waste some money on useless pursuits. Goes for all professional sports. Its just adds for gear companies proped up by government funding. Imagine a world where this kid was doing something that actually advanced humanity.
Bring back the amateurs.
