CAMPOVEN MORNING TEA At last years national meet we tried a campoven cooking competition. It was very hard to separate a winner, so this year we decided to have a campoven morning tea, where everyone could bring along their favourite campoven bread, damper, scones or cake & sample what other treats where on the table. Once again there were some outstanding delights presented.

   Amongst the fare was a plate of lamingtons made by Margaret Durante & offered to Kevin by Helen. Kevin reclined the offer. Rob was asked if he would like a lamington which he readily accepted. First bite..... mmmmmm a little tough, so a bigger bite was needed. He soon found that the lamington centre was not sponge, but foam. Ok we are even now Robyn, Helen, Coxy & Gus. hahahahahahaaa

GPS WORKSHOP Kevin Beckworth assisted by Bruce Bates presented a very informative talk on GPS related to 4wding & touring. Kevin showed the difference between various brands & models of handheld GPS units & how they could be connected to a laptop with a range of different software to produce moving maps. He spoke of how a laptop in the front of a vehicle could cause injury in the event of an accident & could be avoided by using a touch screen.

TAME THE TOILET TENT John Heath was there to defend his 13 second title of fastest man on earth to fold a change tent. Many stepped up to try their luck but most failed. Then out from the crowd stepped Jason from Dynamic Solar Solutions. With a wave of the toilet tent he had it folded in a blink. New record of 5 seconds. The crowd went wild. Just to show it wasn't a fluke he repeated the feat not once, but twice. What can we say???
