My brother lives in Geraldton and he went to the last one and was really impressed. He did ask me a couple of weeks ago if I would go across this year but unfortunately I can't make it. I am sure it will be a great event.

Thumbs up vvfi

what an end to a fantastic weekend! bren gun carrier drag races! harry delux concert and a centurian firing its first shots in 40 years, gunner was out of practice, first two shots missed but the third decimated the enemy tank (haybails) in spectacular fireball, the spitfire was something else along with the chipmunks, texan, steerman and a host of other planes as well!
