Fellow Sketchy fiends,
Our city was hit by a 7.1 magnitude earthquake early on Saturday 4th September. We're pleased to report there were no fatalities (with the exception of one of the zoo's lemurs) and all of the sketchy crew are intact.

Some of our local Art Monkeys have been badly affected. Many have lost their homes, and it's sad to see some of Christchurch's iconic historic buildings in ruins. Some areas are battling broken sewage pipes and contaminated water supplies. It's not safe to drink from the tap so we're sensibly sticking to alcohol.

Our beloved hosts, Goodbye Blue Monday, have withstood the tremors with all their whiskey safe and sound. This part of the city is badly shaken up (hrrmm?!). The CBD is still cordoned off but initial reports suggest that GBM should be back to business hopefully by the weekend.

Sponsors Absolution and The Flying Burrito Brother's have also withstood the rumble. We're waiting anxiously to hear how Madam Butterfly's Vintage Style Boutique have fared.

Our next event is scheduled for Thursday 23rd September. We're pretty sure all will go ahead as planned but will update you if this changes.

Kia kaha to all in Christchurch. Thanks for all your support - we loved getting a checkup message from Molly. *purrr!*
