    Yeah Mango's ok. Got a bit of a bad rap for a while. But it's a tidy little town now.
    What years were you there? I did my sixth form year there in 1981.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Kudos for making it to sixth form in that part of the country. A dozen or so years before I gave fifth form a couple of goes but failed to pass muster (School Cert) and I was one of the bright kids. Ha ha ha ha

    No I actually gave three secondary schools a chance to educate me. Te Awamutu College for the Third form. Maa and Paa decided I was learning the wrong type of stuff, so sent me to Wesley College for the fourth and fifth form. And I decided that if I had to go back to school for the sixth form I was going to go to Mango. Boy did I learn some stuff there. Mostly to do with Biology. Left the week before UE exams started. Decided that if they didn't want to accredit me with University Entrance, then bugger them, I wasn't going to accept it via their stupid exam system.

    Ha ha ha ha remember the three R's you had to learn that old folk used to talk about? It took me years to work out that it wasn't the Rugby, Rooting and Rifles that I thought it was.

    @BRADS let me know when the rifle reaches you. I kind of feel like I need to follow up or our lanky mate will start switching lights on when I am asleep.

    Hey @Rushy, Stage 2 of the deliver from Me to @7mmwsm took place on Friday night.

    We met and passed this to Jeff and he will store securely until around the 5th of March when he is due to travel by Road down on his trip down to Southern most Island. He will travel via the Hawkes Bay route down all the way and drop off at @BRADS place.

    Brads I've given him your phone number details to contact to arrange the drop off of all the items - Lemme know if you don't hear anything of course but all should now be in transit... Brads I'll text his details to you now also via text by me. Sorry Have been really busy with the retreat from sun up til down the last three days.

    Let me know if you want any more info !
    Cheers CD.

    Yep it's all locked up and awaiting the next leg of the journey.
    Good to meet some more of you guys. Sorry the weather didn't turn it on for your weekend. Did you get on the river?Name:  20170221_063859.jpg

    That downpour on Friday evening did some damage here. Crossing washed out and a couple of fences flattened. @Rushy I have to admit that the accessories with this parcel were quite poorly packaged. A plain brown package often suggests you have been shopping somewhere sleazy. Unless you are in Otorohanga, then everyone knows you have been to Hadads and there's nothing sleazy about them.
    So I have repackaged everything in a much more appropriate container.

    Hi @7mmwsm - Yeah the local rivers were chocolate so we went for plan C - Which was to head over to the Waihou and Getting most guys on the river at the Waimakariri (the NI version). This water was absolutely fishable with fish being caught by all the guys.

    Thanks Goodness also for Norm there who has the farm just as you turn off upstream from the road to Rotorua who has a mice wee cottage set up on the streamside we could use as a meet up point for the lunches etc and access across his land. This made having a spot where the guys could come back too if they got tired and needed a break or refuel before going out.

    A big shout out to the local boys that when Craig rang after the previous nights 118mm of rains offered up a big Buccaneer so we could also put three guys on it and fish the Arapuni from Bulmers Landing, and Happy and the fishing buddies who chaperoned, took photo's, provided quads to get up and down the races.

    She all went off like a Prom dress!
