Was good to catch up, and put names to faces for about 3mins, then forget them again....

I liked Speewas idea of a name plaque on the tent.. then you know whose tent it is, but not the person again...

I needed one of those plaques on Sunday night or should I say early Monday morning. It's quiet hard to find the right tent in the dark after a big night on the turps  ??? ???  I found that out when I accidentally snuggled up with Big Steve only to find out he was camped next to us ;D
At least now I know why they call him "Big Steve" :D

Thanks again to Mace for a great weekend. It was good to meet everyone there and both Glenda and I enjoyed ourselves. The Kelly tour was indeed a highlight and Mace you have to be thanked for that. Tolmie is a place we will be back to, if only to relax and destress. On the way home we had lunch at the Tolmie pub and saw a Kookaburra being hand fed Porterhouse steak. The meals there are HUGE.

Great shot Mark,

Ronnie ODwyer  is a Character and a great Cook. Robyn makes everyone welcome @ front of house. Kooka is a real bonus. And yes, the meals there are huge, a few of us retreating there on Monday night.  Thanks for the company Jamie & fi, Barry & Claire & Chevvy & Hutchie (who I tried to get lost by taking the long cut home!!

 :cheers:  Al.

You deserved the win Bruce, after paying out of your own pocket for all the glow copters and glow sticks for the kids.
John now that I have heard you climbed into the wrong tent and discover big steve a few comments on the Monday drive make sense now, LOL.
After doing that trip I went out today and got me a uhf radio to install ;D

As Speewa pointed out on the day the spotties are for 4WD drifting.

Lost, Did you get any photos of me getting up there?
