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
