Evening Reading - January 2, 2023

It's nighttime in America, which means it is time for another edition of Shacknews Evening Reading.


Good evening, Shacknews, it's nighttime, which means it's time for Evening Reading. It's also the start of a brand new year here at Shacknews. While the rest of the staff is still technically on holidays, it's the future here in Australia which means I get to open up shop! Let's start off with a look back at a few of the awards we gave out at the end of last year! Please take a look.

Do it for Shacknews Award 2022 - Lola

I was going to include this piece in the list above, but wanted to give it a bit more space for me to write about. Shacknews lost Lola in 2022. Her passing hit us all hard. When thinking about our nominees for our annual Do it for Shacknews Award, there was no doubt in our minds who should receive this award. Please, take a look at the video above and then go and spend some time with your own beloved furry friend. We love you and miss you Lola.
