Once again, a great day was had by all at 's workshop
with at least 50 interested people in attendance.

Demos by Neil Ellis (Ubeaut) went over well, Ken Wraight did
a couple of demos with the audience marvelling at his ability
to create the seemingly impossible, and , in his
usual style was there to support them both.

Fair dinkum, Ken and deserve to book a guest spot
at the Melbourne Comedy Festival. Both are very talented in
their own right but have fun at each other's expense in
presenting their sessions. It was worth the trip down just for that.

Vic Wood (with wood) was doing a brisk trade and most would
have gone home with some new blanks to work on.

's better half was fussing over us all ensuring we had
adequate cups of tea and coffee, bread, paper plates etc.

Great to see so many faces from Gippsland, Werribee and
other places willing to attend.

Well done everyone!

It was good to catch up with old friends and see some new faces as well.

The best bit is there were no coffee granules in the sugar.:D

I suspect that after... what? 5 years of the same event? ...that even the oldest dog's have finally learned a new trick. :D

Many thanks to , Neil and Ken for a very interesting day. It is amazing the amount the wealth of knowledge and skills you have. As one person once said to me when I was working as trouble shooter, " I would be happy to know what you have forgotten already" and the same applies here.
Now that we have seen "Jim's monster gate posts", we want to see some photos of them in situ and also how they got there.
