Thanks to Steve for organizing and supplying all the goodies for a totally enjoyable and tasty arvo on the foreshore.

Was fantastic to put all the faces to names and find out what all the boys and girls were REALLY like!! ;-)

Learned a few things too....Red dogs real name is Drew!! (sorry mate, could`nt resist)

Jack-lives-heres real name is Jack-lives-here !!

Luke works for Telstra. (Wont hold it against you mate)

Katrina is the perfect wife. (She fishes with the best of em) Your a lucky man Russel. ;-)

Simon can build a trailer for under $200 !! (Order pending mate!!)

Webby`s boat looks fast and is fast!! (How do you afford the fuel?)

Steve is the perfect wife. (He does a mean BBQ)

Touchy likes his Green Ginger Wine at room temperature. (Your a champion for supplying all that fishing gear to the young anglers bank)

Fitzy was found to be very forgiving. (After I broke his $350 Loomis rod) (Ouch)

Nugget has lost the Jesus image with a shave and haircut. (I still liked the sarong and sandle ensomble mate)

And for all those who I did`nt get a chance to chat with...look out, I`ll find some dirt somewhere!!!!!!! ;-)

I`m hiding now.

Regards, Randall.

Yes, I have to agree with Randall. It was a very enjoyable afternoon. It was a pleasure to meet all the folks there and I was blown away with the generosity of mine-host, who is also a mean hand at the BBQ.

I look forward to, and will happily contribute towards, another such meet and greet.

Good arvo had by all
Randall now i know why u had the "junior" taken off your
title, you looked older then David and I, but Nuggett better
watch him self. 1. buy some hair dye 2.start wearing that
hat more often or youll get sun stroke.
and i thought Fitzy was some tall dude but alas. but he'll keeps the ice coffee production in full swing..
Red dog your in Qld now hats hats hats or you will look like a "reddog"
Lucky Phill better get some lesson inpainting or change your sunglasses.
Brent looks like Aquaries , must swim under the water
at Wello and not on top catching his sweetlips
Pockets turned up late and had to lick the bbq as it was finished.
And the "MAN of Ausfish" looks like the pressure is getting
to him, having to check all this dribble we put on his net.
Think there the one you missed Randel.

Ditto to all of the above.

Funny thing is, Katrina was the only one to look better in real life than in the pics. ;D ;D

Onya Steve, top effort. Stay off the smokes Luke >:(

I'll get to that parrot spot soon Webby. ;)

And to all the cyber fishoes, a good word all round. :D

Dave ( Nugget ), buy yourself a note book or a mini cassette recorder for all those reports. ;D

Can't wait to see the group photo taken by Nugget.
Cheers Brent

hhhhmmmm Rib Fillet. The Big Fella will be jealous!! :P
Was great to meet the crew. Not bad for a first up turnout.
Seems to bring folks closer together after social days like these. Steve you are a maniac with all those give away!! I'm sure everyone was more than impressed! Now we all got an Ausfish hat. Was worth the drive just for that!
