    i missed coffs this year. after all of the talk that i have heard (and that i'm still hearing), i'm keen as mustard to make it down for the next one. Is there any one motel/hotel that is being booked out??
    Would like to stay amoungst it all for obvious reasons (night flying over the roads :-)) to name but a few reasons

    Hey Guys
    Looking to hopefully come up to this one, and have a holiday with the family at the same time.
    From the pics I saw of this years looks like a good event.
    Cheers Rob

    Bill one of our members is a mechanic at Lindsey brothers and Brown and Hurly Trucks have donated a big tent type thingey. We can put you under ther for shade.
    It will probably double as the frequency control tent so you should get some traffic.
    I will get another flyer organised with accomadation details, soon.
    It is 6 months away though you know.

    So if a bloke can drive all the way up from Melbourne for this event, will he get to see this mythical Westland Wessex??

    You know I love you Peter.

    Pressure?? Pressure??

    4 reminders in almost 9 months can't count as pressure, you're married aren't you, personally I get more pressure than that in one day about picking up my clothes!

    So back to the question, which you didn't answer... if a bloke was to drive up from Melbourne for the Coffs event, would he get to see this elusive heli? That would give you another 4 months to get it out of storage.

    Sooooo???

    I suppose , IF I can refind it , and IF I can fit it in the car, there's a slight chance it could be spotted at Coffs.......... There's even a chance , IF I get motivated , it MAY even FLY again ..


    So... a drive from Melbin MAY get the desired result.....

    LOL.... my thinking was; as it clearly isn't getting the love and respect it deserves then it might fancy being taken back to a loving Melbourne home in the back of a Chevrolet.

    I'm looking for as many reasons as I can to convince the RSM Home Command to give me a leave pass, so far I've come up with;
    1. Give me a chance to improve my eye hand co-ordination,
    2. Get the opportunity to be assessed for my Bronze Heli wings,
    3. Pick up the bargin of the century deal on a Westland Wessex, and
    4. Clock up some required FBT milage on the vehicle.
    Of course several of these involve your good self!

    OK seriously, I'm done pestering you now.

    But Skidd

    It would cost you about $1472189012.98 in fuel in that monster truck of yours wouldn't it?

    Skidd, it seems like you need to practice some good old "sucking up" proceedures. The 4 reasons you've given your Home Commander seem pretty crook if you ask me. I'm no expert on these matters, and I will never, ever, say that I understand how a Home Commander's mind operates.

    After 37 years of taking orders from the same Commander, all that I have really understood, is that the rules of "engagement" rarely change: Her way or the highway!

    See, your 4 given reasons are all pointing to you. Nothing to appease the Commander. I would have thrown in something like:
    * I'll bring you back a new dress/ jewellery/ helic... oops
    * When I book the accomodation for Coffs, I may as well book (insert favoured getawy place) for (insert favoured date) at the same time. We might get a discount.
    ... * and as a last resort, I promise to wash up/ cook/ mow the lawn/ visit your Mum.....( you know the drill).

    Good luck with your choice of attack. I hope you have a successful recon for the pending mission! If all else fails, start a hell of a fight a day before due departure, and she'll be pleased to see the back end of you! It's cheaper too.

    But I don't have to worry, because it's only a tad over an hours drive from here. So I'll be definitely be at Coffs for a sticky beak.

    .... and I bet you can't stop pestering Peter about the WW!
