Still haven't heard from anybody CONUS that wants to sign flag.  Tony requested I include a couple addresses of CONUS folks when I send.  That's all I'm waiting on...

You can always send a PM with the addresses .

If no one is interested, then off to the UK it is !!

If it gets to my neck of the woods by mid September I can bring it back as I will be visiting my spiritual Lone Star home at the end of the end of September/first week in October. I owe Justin a brew for all his good work.... any excuse.

Two weeks since I sent an email to Trolle and no response from him .

Sent an email to Balibeemer today, he has not been online for over 27 months, I don't have much hope for getting a response from him either .

But I've been proved wrong before .

I just got an email stating that the email address that Balibeemer has on file here, is no longer a valid email address .

Rechecked the address I used and found that I left out one period, resent the message .

Just got another message, the email address in not valid anymore .

This flag may be lost . Sad

Something like that. My favourite aircraft museum had an "open cockpit" weekend last weekend. By chance it coincided with my father's sister's 80th birthday so I flew south and drove him up to a small city called Bundaberg to go to her birthday lunch. Drove back to my father's home that night and then got up the next morning and went to QAM.

Flying home tonight.

Been a pretty "social" week because the previous weekend my wife and I rode down to the town of Cardwell which is neatly 1/2 way between Cairns and Townsville for the annual get-together of the Cairns and Townsville motorcycle restorers clubs - I will post some photos in the next few days.

Tomorrow reality intrudes and I'll have to do some work.

The flag has arrived!

I will contact Peter to arrange a time for flag signing and attempt to contact the inactive member at Kuranda.

Then, subject to agreement from Justin I will forward to Burt, possible on-fowarding to Sydney/Melbourne and then either back to CONUS or as agreed.

Glad it got there so fast!  Just pass it around over there and get as many to sign on as want to.

Well Petermc, my wife and I have signed the flag, haven't heard from the member in Kuranda so the flag is ready for the next stage of its journey.

Happy to send to Burt in Brisbane next, then perhaps on to Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide etc.

BUT the honour of Australia is at stake, don't ask for the flag to be sent to you unless you are prepared to pay the postage to send it on and to send it on quickly.

When the flag has done the rounds and is ready to be sent to the UK (or wherever)  so that the last person holding it doesn't get the big postage cost I am happy to contribute and I am sure others will to.


SO - Burt, what is your mail address please?
