    What Did You Get Fined For At The GTG??

    One of the things the Committee decided to do was instigate a fines system where participants would be fined for funny, silly or just completely made up 'misdemeanours'. All funds raised will be donated to the RFDS. At the end of the GTG the fines count, plus a couple of hundred dollars for auctioned items stood at over $700.00!! Woo Hoo! Go us. There will be a bit more before the budget is finalised

    The RFDS is a worthy cause at the best of times ... particularly for those of us who travel the outback of Australia, but became even more important because one of our participants needed the services of the RFDS on his way to the GTG.

    A few of the fines I can remember...

    Ursos - for having too much hair
    BLKD4D - for not having enough hair
    Mark (mate of BLKD4D) - for hanging around with someone who doesn't have enough hair
    Rev - for littering ... it was especially silly because it was his name tag!!
    VKPrado - for driving without a pilots licence (he was seen driving with most wheels of the ground)
    MLC - for showing his plumbers crack (got the picture to prove it)
    MrsVKPrado - for cleaning out Banrock Station of all it's wines
    I've got a 4WD and I'm not afraid to use it!!

    All the Queenslanders ... because you have to pay for the ferry at Noosa and the ferry across the Murray River is free!
