Mackay and Whitsunday Life

How many Rob’s can you fit into one room?

A lot if you take last night’s 4MK Rob’s Party at Magpies Sporting Club as an example.

We had a ball with a night that we’ve never done before. Filled a room with everyone named Rob. Sure, some people were officially named Rob or Robin, or Roberta based on their birth certificate. But we had plenty more there who were given a world famous Rob name for the night, and we loved every second of it.

We played a few games, gave out some prizes and we may have had a couple of drinks, but let’s not say how many because it was a school night anyway.

Tonight it’ll be a fun night with the launch of the Mackay Golf Pro Am and I guess I’ll get some tips of how to best shoot a 5 under at the Mackay Golf Course. Just for those who don’t know, I’m a hacker and 5 under would be great for anyone, but for me 5 over would be normal.

Remember over the next few weekends we are off to the basketball for some high quality NBL1 action with our Meteorettes and Meteors doing battle against Cairns, Logan and Ipswich. If you’ve never been to Candlestick Park before, have a look. It’s a fun night.

A reminder that the annual Mackay Marina Run is next week and then it’s pretty much show season. The Pioneer Valley Show at Finch Hatton will be my highlight as I’ll be on the microphone again having a few laughs, but then straight after we’re off to the annual 3 days festival that is the Mackay Show.

So many fun things to see and do around Mackay and the Whitsundays and as the weather gets colder and the days shorter, what’s not to love right?

Get outside and have some fun.

You can join Rob Kidd from 5am weekday mornings on 4MK 1026 AM in Mackay and Proserpine, 91.5FM in Airlie Beach or just ask your smart speaker to play 4MK on iHeartRadio!
