That was great, thanks for sharing!

I guess I'm just used to the living in the modern world when you get sporting results instantly via social media.

DLRA please forgive my eagerness.

So I've just found the event page and it has the results I was looking for. I thought I would find it here in the forum.
Thankyou.

Hey Greg, Chris Lieschke is one of our ROCK guys and took some top quality shots. I will get him to send some through sometime this week. I have some footage too.
Is there any update on trophy winners?
Thanks, Shane

On the Thursday or Friday someone came to the registration van and left a small 12 volt 25W UHF radio and clip-on car aerial at registration.
We have no idea who it belongs to, could all potential owners please form a queue and email me the make of the UHF radio.

So, what did you think?
Ginny's spin was all about how events are organised in remote locations, but I think she captured the feel of the event pretty well.

Just watched the uploaded one.
I thought it was good.
The ABC are always good at giving over views from different perspectives & they certainly did that 8)
