ABC Island is getting into the Melbourne Cup spirit as well, running a fashions on the field event tomorrow evening at 7pm (1am SL time) at the Melbourne Laneways section of the island.
From the announcement:
“So dress to impress and join in fashions on the field, history of the Melbourne Cup and compete in the race that stops all SL.
Prizes will be awarded for best dressed and the race winner.
We will also be launching our new design competition*, ‘Your Own Piece of Melbourne’ with a nights accommodation in a deluxe room in an icon Melbourne hotel (valued at over $250) up for grabs.”
I find it interesting that both Telstra and the ABC have events at exactly the same time – is it competition or collaboration?
