    Sound like a good time was had by all. Beware Trev as turning can become very addictive seriously it can be very useful in model and toy making. Also good to put faces to names

    For those of you who dont know .... my wife is very a quiet person and not a socialite.

    Now the weekend is over here are a few of her comments
    "it was a great weekend"
    "those wood working people are very nice people. No swearing, no carry on, very friendly"
    "I liked every single one of them"
    "next year we are going to be more organised. A new bathroom, new toilet and fix that back door (if you were here you would know)"
    "I liked the fact that everyone enjoyed themselves and it was all casual"

    Big thanks from Raechell, Tyler, Sammy, Tommy, Jade & myself. Without those who attended it would not have been anything at all.

    I'm glad that the weekend was a success and that Raechell felt comfortable amongst it all. Most woodies seem to be a very happy and easy going bunch and it looks like you had some there.
    Good to hear that Crowie and rwbuild eventually made it safely. Hopefully they have a better trip home.
    Thankyou to you and Raechell for putting on the weekend even though I couldn't be there. Hopefully next time, if it happens again.
    Are there any more photos to come?
    Cheers,
    Dallas

    I'm very pleased that the weekend went well Dave.
    As mentioned by a couple of earlier posters, a early reminder of next years event would help us with our very busy social calendar at this time of year

    That really was a great weekend in Jerilderie.
    Honestly folks you'd have to go some place very special to meet nicer people!.
    I'm sure it will be on again next year.
    If your the sort of person who enjoys woodworking and a relaxed family weekend it's the only place to be on Australia Day!.
    Dave your a champion mate but as always the gold medal goes to Raechell.
    She's always there making sure it all goes smoothly, and that all who attend find themselves in a food coma by mid-afternoon.

    Thanks for a fantastic weekend.
    Trevor.

    Crowie and Uncle AL had cameras on the go and Trev took some pics of the Indian.

    If you guys can post some pics on this thread would greatly appreciate as I just cannot post pics with any speed from my phone. For some reason it is taking upto an hour 'if' it loads at all.

    Any other pics by anyone else who was there would be great too.

    Heads up ... there will be another GTG next year ... details to come. I will endevour to PM all who have shown interest with the new thread details once it is up and running in the next month or two.

    Well after a challenging start/drive we arrived at Dave's just after 9.30pm Saturday night, just a few hours later than expected....
    Thank you Dave & Trev for rescuing the caravan & us from Narraderra; were the NRMA truck dropped us from Lockhart after almost running out of LPG....
    I slept like a log on the Saturday night [exhausted], but did way too much talking on the Sunday to all the blokes who attended and while I enjoyed it all, I had a very disturbed night...
    Monday proved better as I did less talking, plus had 2 "nanna naps" so I could stay up late to watch the Australia Day Firework which were very good down by the Jerilderie lake....
    Dave & Raechell are first class country Australians with hospitality & generosity too boot....what top hosts!!
    We left late morning on Tuesday coming home via West Wylong for a flatter run for towing and while having lunch there, the ever reliable Ian rang to confirm that my car was an AU2 LPG Falcon Auto without an auxiliary oil cooler; something his shop had fitted to dozens of AU2 in the past...all was now clear; as towing Ray's caravan was overheating the gearbox & in turn the engine was running hotter thus using heaps more LPG....after we returned the van to Woodstock & the car was like a rocket ship from there to Oberon...dropped Ray about 7.30-ish & I got home through the fog & rain about 9.30pm....home safe, very tired but relaxed after a top weekend.....
    Thank you Dave again and all the folk who attended to make it great...
    Thank you Ray for the offer to drive me to the gathering, much appreciated....Cheers, crowie..

    PS - I have to sort/cull the 250 photos from the weekend BUT here are the ones from Narraderra servo & our Lockhart stopover....

    Default Update on the way

    I have struck a minor problem sorting the photos of the wonderful weekend. Basically, took too many, and taking a while to sort through them. Will post a full report in the next day or so.

    As Crowie said so well, a fabulous weekend put on by lovely hosts, who even managed a magnificent fireworks display to top it all off.

    Stand by,

    Alan...

    Talking about fire works



    Centre stage, stood side by side we have RWBuild in his hat and boot guards stood next to Uncle Al with his flash camera, or is it camera and flash
