Title: Upper Ruamahunga (above Gladstone)
Post by: TuiMan on July 10, 2003, 19:10:16 PM
I am feeling that we should try again for upper Ruamanhuga. Let no wind no rain no snow no flu stop us. How about it guys. Time to sharpen penciles.  ;D ;D ;D ;D
I am thinking the Sunday 20th.

OK guys, djm and RJRM and anyone else are you set for Sunday????
The WEATHER will be OK, I have confirmed it with God and he said ( over a DB last night.) that he will give us north islanders a good day Sunday and The boys in the south a good day on Saturday, and it will rain, sleet and snow Sat in the north and Sun in the south. Not a bad bloke is God, a bit tight on paying for the beer tho. Djm can you bring your gps? I'll make sure my co driver only has one pie this time and will make sure she keeps her mouth closed on the up hill run and I have changed my fuel jets in my carb..>>>>>>>>>>>>Shaun.

Aha, I thought so... We get the by-product of all that DB he drinks in our weather on the West-Coast.  :(   To get more boating interest in your area have you tried telephoning people, as not everyone knows about this web-board. Your branch chiarman will have numbers of local members. We have a similar situation on the Coast, takes a lot of effort to organise trips.

Well we had a great day on the river in all about 9 boats turned up, it was really great to see. We had everything from very small(about 10ft) to very large( over 17ft). from old to new. The weather was a good sunny day with a light southly wind but all in all Mildish. Thanks to Hugh, Johh and Rob who had a ring around and found some more boaters. Some even Hugh said he hadn't seen. The river was in average flow and we made it all the way to the dam. Some skinny water and only got stuck twice. but I was accused of having wheels under the boat again. I had some good pics but with only one day to work out the new digital camera when I got home and it said trash I said ok so I lost the lot.... real pi??ed off. There is a meeting on at the Tin Hutt just out of Featherston which I will go and make my face known and try to generate more interest in this site. John,sorry I missed you at the Pub by the time I got there you had gone :'( :'(  Can't wait to see your new boat when you get it bult.>>>>>>thanks for a good day, We did real well as far as the weather was concerned.>>>>>>Shaun
