Hello again my little rock wallabies!

August is actually Golf Month, but after some thought I decided I really don’t care about golf and so (sadly for some) there will be no trip to the greens.
Instead it’s NARP Month!
For further information and updates on the following events please join the google group.

SPECIAL NARP ANNOUNCEMENT!
DESTRUCTOID AUSTRALIA VS THE WORLD!
Thanks to the brilliant suggestion of Dtoid Europe a Worldwide NARP will be held from August 13-15th 2010!

Who: All Destructoid members are welcome however spaces are limited so get in early!
What: Dtoid Communities from around the world will be holding NARPs on the weekend of August 13th to 15th. Because the rest of the world is so far behind Australia we have to start without them, and we thought we'd do it in style by taking our NARP to The Mana Bar!
We will be meeting up on the Friday night for drinks while we wait for the rest of the world to catch up, then Saturday through to Sunday evening we will be playing games, drinking, playing games and maybe some drinking games to mix things up.

We will be not only playing against the other Dtoid communities on Xbox Live and PSN but also streaming live through Stickam so that those who cannot be there for the event can join in and be a part of the AMAZING event!

If you are unable to make it to Brisbane for the event please join the google group so that we can exchange gamertags and PSN ids.

We will also be holding the following tournaments locally for all those who attend our Australian event at El Casa De Muzz:
