Hey Rees...happy new year mate. Been ages but I’ll have a go. Used to enjoy Bruce’s comp way back(where did he go??)

Mate you can stick your plumbing....finally got around to doing a new bathroom. Looks good but a few dramas😩along the way(and breaks for golf). Santa gave me a nice new set of tools(Milwaukee😬)as a thank you.

Where have you been hiding my good mate.  No worrys. Happy New year bud.

I have been up in Auckland for the last two months Rees, getting N.Z ready to defend the America's Cup!!! "Run to the back of the tote now". The handbrake has not been let off yet, so plenty of "knots" up the sleeve.

Wishing everyone good selecting, and thanks Rees for putting it on.

These competitions are appreciated by many people who are confined to their homes, and it gives them interest, and structure to their days and nights.

Cheers.

Robert.

Do all participants in these competitions receive a prize?😂

Yep. A triers prize . A handshake. Welcome aboard Happy, was hoping you would turn up and the same for Rusty. 

Shaping up to be very competitive with some good knowledge shared across quite a few competitors..

There is just over $300 in the prize pool kitty, so will allocate $200 to be used how you see fit.

Even after donating my own money to an earlier comp (which was gratefully declined) I would rather not engage in any monetary reward for this Hesi. I have thought about a simple Trophy for the winner and one for the Champion of Champions winner. Some little memento to show the grandchildren and appease the ego. Will price them up, have a mate that runs a sign shop here in Masterton. Thanks.

If Rusty is in, I am in too.

Well there goes any chance I had of winning this comp! 

All I need now is our mate "Dougie" (from across the road) to enter, and best I could do, on a very good day, would be 3rd! 

Just joking. But not really. 

Should be a bit of fun. Good luck everyone. I know I'll need it.
