Is that a photo of something growing on D4D's unused shanty town?

If there is some dirt left, I'd like to add my name to the list.

Still plenty of room.

The Navara 4wd club were looking for a place to stay on the same weekend.  They have been informed that Myswaggers will fill the place to capacity.  space wasnt really the issue, but the toilets and showers will be at capacity for our group.

HHMMMMM.

Will try and twist the bosses arm for this, a very busy time for us/

The current publican of the Tolmie Hotel and I were constables together at South Melbourne in the mid 70"s.
We used to share a car to work when possible, mine an LJ Torana and him a Lancia.
Both liked a beer back then, I still do and it appears he has upped his enthusiasm.

I havn't seen rotten Ronnie since about 78, a get together could be interesting.

On a few weeks off as we speak Mace, will get back to you once I get back to work.

G'Day Mace,

is it still possible to attend this event or have i missed my chance, i ask,  as i have just had to cancel our Sept trip out to Uluru, (my Little girl is to unwell to travel at this time) and replan for a trip (Murray River) over Oct/Nov, all going well with my little girl.

My wife and i have looked at the High Country for some time, and when we read this, we both though that we could tie this into the end of our proposed trip along the Murray River, and enjoy looking thru kelly country with urself and others.

If u still have room available, we woud likely arrive a day or 2 early to set up and have a look around, and then enjoy meeting a few of the swaggers, and attend the tours etc u have out lined.


Anyway mate let me know ur thoughts, i understand totally if room prevents us attending, as i have left it very late to express my interest.

Regards Swanny

Hi Mace,

Looking forward to this trip and meeting some fellow swaggers. After bragging about this to a friend of ours they want to tag along. 2 adults, 2 kids & tent.

I see there is quite a number on the list already, is there any room left?

Cheers

S

Hey Guys,

Is there still any room left? We are new to the camper trailer scene and this sounds like a great way to meet people, and I reckon the kids would love it!

Youre in Maho, by the skin of your teeth!   ;D

As from this Friday onwards I am going to Cap the numbers.  A reserve list will be started, if you are on the reserve list you will have to wait for someone to pull out of the main list to get  a start.

We are currently awaiting approval from Mr  :police: for our Saturday nights entertainment.  An application from the Mansfield Colonial Reinactment Society has gone in for approval.

The MCRS is a local group of Colonial Tragics who spend a lot of time preserving our local history.
They have agreed pending approval to come along and give us a bit of entertainment an spend some time with us swaggers.  They dress up in period "traps"  costumes and display their hardwares, black powder rifles & pistols, all under controlled conditions.  Their knowledge of kelly history is pretty good too!

Stay Tuned.

Ah, Mace, I can see it now. Some poor little bunny is going to hop out onto the oval,"Poppasmurf is going to spot it in his scope,1 of the traps  will blast it for resisting arrest just like in the old days and all that will be left is the ears and tail and the smell of black powder  :D Sounds like fun  :cup: :cheers:
