    I realise that and thats why I said it would get you into trouble (In my opinion more from the BB posters than the target of the innuendo).

    Now everyone should follow our model. You can see for yourselves the results achieved by the ACT!

    Thanks jenni for all that. It scoped for me the amount of coaching at the Aus. Junior.

    Teach me to write too much in the evening and not proof read properly - or maybe it was wishful thinking.

    We had to keep an eye on you somehow.....

    Actually 7 of the ACT's 38 kids stayed at the Mercure i.e nearly 20%.

    And, as I pointed out to George et al - the ACT children at the Mercure were all travelling with parents. Many of those in the Lodges were not. So 7 players (20%) at the Mercure represented a higher percentage of the actual ACT presence in Mt Buller.

    But still, we were so mean and unsupportive ...
