    You could ask them. Under the privacy laws, I think they are required to explain the purpose for collecting personal info.

    I’ve got your back VC. I’ll take one for the team and drink twice as much in July to cover you.

    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

    I'm hanging in there @Rushy. Still dry so far, .... but think I will really need a shower soon.

    By the way, VC will probably stipulate minimum acceptable standards.

    Dry July !!!!! You have to be kidding, it usually rains like hell in Auckland that time of year.
    I’m having a couple of G & Ts in a nice little place in Federal street whilst waiting for some clients to shout me dinner.

    Oh, and @Rushy, good to see that you're admitting that your chosen swill (Waikato) will unlikely make the grade, so therefore not the greatest.

    Good shit, I have been thinking about this myself. I'm just not a big fan of losing so I find it easier not to do these things.
    I mentioned to a mate as a bit of a bet, I was just working out how the bet would work if we both managed to do it and who would keep an eye on every one.
    To be fair also...I hate donating to certain organisations as I don't think the money goes down the line enough.

    Anyway if you wanted to do a sideline bet or something I would be keen.

    Pffttt. GM you wouldn’t know a great beer (or for that matter a beer) if it dropped on you from a great height.
