Your team of Official experts!
Let me introduce the team behind this incredible event:
Mojo – Bash organiser, route organiser, and general good bloke (does not actually do a hell of a lot). He of coarse is ably assisted by the rest of us who do even less if that is possible.
Lou – in charge of printing and getting to dinner early, head of GTNA committee, head of DG committee, in fact if you want to know anything about committees Lou is your man, (but if you need detail Jif is your man)!!
Lyn and Dorris, these 2 are in charge of movement and deliveries, they both move very well and have been known to deliver someone to the correct address, even if it was the wrong day. Both highly experienced at what they do (we have not figured this out yet) and out standing in there field (or a paddock)

Ok kids, this is what you have all been waiting for, our new food trailer, it had it’s inaugural outing on this years bash in March 2015 and performed very well, we did beef the springs up after hitting a deep culvert at 70 kms but other than that performed well.
