    Don't forget the KRR 8th 9th and 10th February 2013. I missed last year, don't want that to happen again.

    My computer died a couple of months ago, and good old muggins didn't back up the PST file. Hunsta and Rick if you could kindly make contact so we can plan.

    Stop whinging you buggers. It would not be a KRR without an almighty storm on arrival at the Dungog pub and a bit of hail on arrival at Frying pan creek. I don't worry about it any more, it is simply part of the mystique.

    I remember arriving one year and down come the hail, only small stuff but boy it wacked in me in back hard. After it was over I raced over to the tent to talk to Ray Peake and overheard a kid say "did you see that idiot over there protecting his tank from the hail. Silly young player of course, every one knows an aluminium tank needs protection from hail.

    Be there or be square, I can't wait.

    Cheers

    Craig,
    Friday lunch aye. I was hoping to at least make Moonan Flats Friday night, that would be a bit of a push from Midday leaving from where you are. I will also take Monday off for a more liesurely ride home.

    Cheers
