Tel,

Alternate years it is Bendigo (or is it Ballarat? I get confused easily).

The good news is that we don't have to rush to get that special machine painted in time.

We'll have to aim for that then - Bendigo seems to ring a bell.

Can't quite tell, Tel, are you a judge, or Douglas Mawson? Bendigo sounds good, and a good excuse for the Jerildarie, Deniliquin Echuca run. Great trip that one. Hugh.

I assumed that the new hat was caused by the warm Aussie winter.

That's a pity I was looking forward to going this year even had approval from SWMBO, booked train and all.

What a shame.

I realise this is selfish but it conflicted with my 55th reunion of our class of 59 joining the RAN, (for which I'd already booked and paid), so  maybe I now can make it to the next one.
