As if the SMS and the phone call weren't enough.Wink
Mate that is awesome!! I am extremely jealous.
Would have won a few prizes in the Coipasa if we had of held it on Saturday as planned. Hopefully we will get it booked on soon, just have to avoid your footy days, right?Wink
I am assuming Pete couldn't walk back any further to fit the whole fish in.Laughing

I can see why you couldn't fit it in your esky Pete. Its a horse! How long did it take Matt to bring it in, and what gear was he using?
