Was there as well, a great night.

Down in the crowd? Geez it was packed in. The crowd dynamics were pretty interesting ie: anything from young kids, people in their 20s up to people with walking frames and scooters

I was also amazed the amount of people that left early well before the end

And then wondering why all of those old fuddie-duddies suddenly left about 20 minutes before Downtown Abby was due to start showing on the ABC.... ;D ;D ;D

No, not cattle class, gave that away years ago.
We paid the extra and well worth it.
Reserved seats, our own toilet and bar within 30 meters.
Nice BBQ and drinks included.

What made you smile - 2020
« Reply #113 on: January 22, 2020, 11:20:07 AM »
Cheers guys.
Got just over 60mm yesterday afternoon.

We have 75,000L total storage and had 2 empty tanks since about October. We bought 14,000L a couple of weeks ago for the 3rd time in the last 6 months.

We’re planning to put in another 50,000L later in the year to try and get us through those dry Sep-Dec months that we seam to be having more consistently now days.
As I mentioned earlier, we miss probably 80% of the storms in those months and now that we have 2 houses on the property we need that little bit extra storage to get us through till the proper rains come in late January.

might be where all the IT's are hidden too .. i can see 4 and an old YZ125 by the look of it... and a restorer PE... and even some old Ossa's.

But the pedal car collection is impressive.. those things pull big $$
