Team Xtreme Coolers in Exxy
Just wanted to say a big thank you to Adam and crew for organising the 2012 FW comp in Exmouth. I did the easy yards and flew up on the Saturday to join Harro, wind on Dave and Mark better known as part A of the SW contingent. These guys jumped at the idea of getting a team together and i was very happy to be part of their trip to Exxy. A few things i learnt about them.
1: They know how to have fun.
2: They play hard.
3: I was the second oldest at 41 and felt every bit a grandpa.
4: Two cartons is not enough for one day.
5: Hydrating includes drinking beer at 8am.
6: They are top blokes.
7: They can laugh at themselves and each other.
8: They know how to fish.
I am sure Adam can testify to a few of these if not all and he got off lightly if you ask me. (I did too. I think the "sponsor role" saved me to tell you the truth)
I had a great time at the wind up, met a few more FW crew. I think a stand out is the picture Simo put up as a best photo candidate. There was another that came a close second. Simo, it was a resounding winner. It was a shame the afters was a bit short lived. Except for the SW boys of course. This was one of their quiet nights. A few lasting memories for me. As it has been mentioned: 5 knots will last with me forever. Even more memorable than the birth of my own kids. Dave's coral trout and the sensational big ruby's that came aboard. We also managed the biggest Golden T's i have seen
The best thing about this trip was that going to Exxy was more about a trip than the comp itself which made it an enjoyable few days.
It was a shame not to see a few more sponsors getting involved. I would love to be part of it again in 2013 and will continue to provide Adam with some prizes. Congratulations to the four winners of the Xtreme coolers. Seeing your happy faces was brilliant.
Again, a big thanks to the SW boys for entertaining me and joining to make team Xtreme. Harro the skipper, Dave, Mark, Part B: Doak's, Liam AKA kitten arms, Tim who should be a comedian and Feral. You would not think that two of these boys are important health professionals.
Boys, keep the Canon hidden.
Till next year when who knows, we might be in KTown if anyone can get accommodation. Maybe even Dunsborough!
Cheers to all the crew who made the effort. Check out the other threads for the pics.
