Howdy everyone,

Finally got around to writing something here. Thanks for the day up in Tallarook a couple of weeks ago, I had a really great time. Certainly managed to impress my girlfriend, and now she's SOOOO proud to own a Spoonz stubby holder.
Anyway, after seeing a Spoonz sticker featured in the latest 4WD Action DVD I'm itching to go again!

Cheers,

I'm staying away from mud as much as possible... I somehow think that mud has wrecked a 30,000km clutch!

I'm out of the game until Melbourne Cup weekend unfortunately fellas....

How is everyone going anyway?

Kind Regards,

Wonongatta (sp) Valley!!! I hope Tim isn't out on a trip, as it will be weird for us to not have him on our now established yearly trip!

I'll get my brother down from Sydney; that way there'll be at least one Tim Bates.

...if I go, does that count as initiation (and membership)?

Joe, I'll get some more stickers made up soon. Once I have them, I'll get you to send me your address and i'll shoot a couple in the mail for ya.

Stubby holder was Scotty.

I got your PM as well. Get the guys who went on the trip with you to jump on here and have a chat with us :)

In regards to the spit, how's about we all bring something? I'll bring a little lamb or something, with lemon, garlic and thyme sauce to baste it in... mmmmm spit roast....

Osh can bring a sack of spuds :P
