Hi Track,

Good to see that you were also slaving away as I have been also... I will be there for sure with one of my son's (we will be flying down on the Friday and staying with Old Aussie and Mum)...

I will bring a video camera and also my good SLR camera as well (Love taking photo's and take some pretty good ones too).. as for the food I agree we will have to get the ball rolling with that one.. (I will be set with steak and eggs in every can of XXXX)..but proberly wont do for everyone!!!

Going back to the shed to keep sanding as I am up early in the morning to finally undercoat the Belle... :D :D :D

Well :!: Never let a good deed go unpunished! I had another package on its way. UPS has turned it around and is sending it back. They said Hazardous Material. Flags, shirts and CDs, go figure. I did use a box from Jamestown Distributors that I think I got paint in. The bomb sniffer must have caught me. If it gets back in time I'll carry it around for 3 weeks and bring it to IAGG.

other package has turned up Bill no bullet holes all good, that's the world we live in now. I was searched at Brisbane airport and had a 4" shifting spanner taken out of my lunch box it was classed as a weapon. i think you guys call them monkey wrenches.

We're sending out an email invite to all the Australians on our list. Could you all take a look at it and make sure I didn't get anything wrong? I pulled photos I had from our Galleries. Here's the link:

Thank you!

Thanks Gayle, that looks perfect!. Looks like we have a few operational boats and some great people attending so we are on track for a great event!
Do you have a graphic file for a large poster that we could have printed locally and display on the dock? Cost might be prohibitive though, not sure what large format printing costs. Maybe something Bill has sent over could be used. Do you have a pdf version of the plans catalog? Maybe we could burn it to some CD's and hand out to interested people. Could get some cheap USB sticks and give away with a copy of it on there. Should have thought of all of this earlier, but for some reason been busy. :roll:

Package 2 is on its way, again! Unless customs slows things down it should be there 10/14.

I think Gayle is cooking up something, too.

Track,

That is a good idea about the USB's. I'll get back to you on that. I have a box in the mail today with some goodies in it going to Old Aussie. Should be there in time--I know what you mean, I should have had this out a month ago!
