Sydney Baby, Yeah!!!!!
Greeting from the other side of the world!!! Sydney, the latest stop on my world domination tour! Bugger the commentry, here are some pics....
|The sydney Opera house, nice I guess?||Same thing, different angle!!!|
|Sydney harbour bridge. Pretty cool architecture!||Same bridge, but with one of the old ferries passing.|
We have done some shooting also! We shot in the Aus cup on saterday with varying success! Mike shot a good match (596) and then a damn fine final (104.6) to win the competition! Neil and myself were not quite so on form, but at least satisfied with parts of the shoot, ie. the end and then the bar.
|The medalists.||Neil, the semi un-official photographer. (nice pins mate)|
Thats all for now folks, we are up early in the morning for a days training. speak soon guys..

World Cup USA - Fort Benning 2
Greetings my friends! Welcome to the further wanderings of myself and the team in USA. We had a little time to spare the other day, a rare luxury, so we thought we'd ead on down to Atlanta. Nice place, nice weather, shame about the locals.. That accent is so annoying!!!! We didn't have much time there but did hit a Mall and went to Coca Cola world.

We all arrived safe and sound, though a little tired. We trained yesterday for a short while and were all very satisfied. really looking forward to the main event.
Currently hanging round the hotel whilst the flat tire on the van is sorted. joy
|The range||Again its pretty big, 80 lanes?|
|Each lane has second monitor for public viewing, and a 10 shot LED board, for quick view of each score! NICE|
Well thats all for now, not to much I know but its a start. We are hoping to go to Atlanta for a day at some time so hopefully will get some more decent pics then!!
Meanwhile enjoy and keep well. see / speak soon.
