I'm quite sure it's 'lou' :)

Not sure if I can make it or not yet, will have to think about it later on.

Is Koala back on?

I hear a rumour that the ACTJCL could bring a bus load of players to Toukley.
Could be an interesting tournament!

Not enough players for a bus, but I know of at least 7 who are going down. (No Olivers for a change).

Hi Brian

Sorry - the success of the Mt Buller bus (for us) made me give it a go this time but takers were thin on the ground. I am being a very brave girl (re-read all postings about women who can't read maps) and driving up myself with Kayleigh, Andrew Brown & Tor Lattimore.

If you don't see us on Saturday morning please send a search party. Anywhere between the Victorian & Queensland borders is a possibility.

Thanks Brian

I believe Tor is on his L plates so I might see if I can give him some practice with the Sydney traffic - throw them in and see if they can swim and all that. (only kidding Tor if you're "guesting" here - although you may come to think it's not such a bad idea :eek: )

BTW Brian - had you heard that they are making (or have made) a film of The Magic Roundabout? I was a big fan somewhere back in the Dark (or at least B&W) Ages. I think I even had some sort of comic or magazine on the show. Blame it on the pommy parentage, I still have the Rupert Bear annuals.

What about Beano?

Hey Libby, Your coming up from canberra right? The easiest way is to get off the M5 at the "cross Roads" which, when you turn right at the exit, takes you onto the Hume Hwy follow that until just before you leave liverpool and turn Left onto the Cumberland Highway. The cumberland highway is a series of roads that connects the Hume at Liverpool to the Pacific at Hornsby. But nearing Hornsby the Sydney - Newcastle Freeway starts. Take the Syd-Newc freeway until you get to the Sparks road turnoff. Head straight ahead. Sparks road eventually leads to the bridge and changes it's name to Main Rd Which the venue is on.

If you need any further help PM me.

BTW What Day are you going up?

Picking up my various charges from school (have added an extra so the small back seat will be very cosy) and setting off Friday afternoon. We should reach Sydney by peak hour.

Thanks for the directions. My husband has instructions to mark the map with a highlighter pen and the guys in the car are in charge of steering me in the right direction. I have a bit of a dose of helpless-female-syndrome when it comes to this stuff. My (chess) daughter thinks it's hilarious and has been giving me heaps about it all week.

Everyone (yes- everyone) from the ACT won a prize of some description.

I believe I may have won the prize for the longest trip home. After boasting of coasting up there in a breezy 4.5 hours we got home in about 7.

Something about pelting rain, traffic congestion in the approach to Sydney, missing the first Canberra turnoff and then almost running out of petrol in Yass made for an exciting journey. By the time I dropped the three guys home as well ... Anyway, I was assured my CD collection was up to scratch and none of them minded the more scenic route home.

Although Nick Topfer should be careful of statements like it "makes him feel so old" when he finds CDs of his choice amongst my collection. :naughty:

I think everybody had a slow damp trip home from Toukley. The Freeway back to Sydney is always a problem on Sunday evening and it was made a lot worse by the torrential rain. It took me 2-2.5 hours to get back to Riverstone!
It rained almost all night but has now finally stopped!

We gave 23 prizes - almost a 50% hit rate!

Trent Parker

It took us about 3.5 hours to get home... including a break for dinner at McCrap. By the time we got to Picton. There was no more rain. :D

I have it on good authority that in David's last game no exchange sacrifice in fact took place and in thanking God for "the most important exchange sacrifice of all" he was actually talking about Jesus's atoning death on the cross.

Good sense of humour, he must rate that one over the 30 pieces of silver exchanged for JC by Judas. But now when thinking of it, if it was not for the Judas exhange the latter one would not have occurred -- so which is more important?

We are been humancentric or selfish by looking at it as atonement. It could almost be irrelevant - Old Man god could have just popped another JC out clone-like.

No need for intercourse, pregnancy, labour, birth, bringing up - just pop!

Even though it would break the law of nothing coming from nothing and the extra material in the universe causing catastrophy.

I am just brainstorming, I am not an expert on any of this.
