HMAS HOBART III

The new HMAS HOBART (III) will be launched this Saturday the 23rd of May at 1030 (SA time). They may cover it on ABC24 (news) if the PM doesn't fall over and stub his toe then that will take priority. I think some of the SA boys are planning on going down that way to have a look.

I don't think any of the FBGW boys will be there. We discussed this at our meeting last week , because Scott's brother has a yacht , but there in going to be an exclusion zone on the river , so it will be hard to get close for a viewing. :crs: :crs:
