Fleet Base Gulf Waters

Post by scott154 »

Fleet Base Gulf Waters (FBGW) is a very small branch of a very large Model Club Task Force 72 we are based in the beautiful state of South Australia in a small city called Adelaide. We have some great guys that have a passion for every thing grey and 1:72 scale that floats(with guns),in the warmer months we sail and the cooler months we build, some times if its not too cold in the shed. Look for us at Rymill Park, West Lakes or Mawson Lakes.

Hi all

Seems I'm a Gulfian now. I'm the Territory outpost.

Dave
I was depressed last night, so I rang lifeline. Got a call centre in
Afghanistan and told them I was suicidal.

They got all excited and asked if I could fly a plane.

Hi All , Just to let everyone know that last Tuesday myself , Vince & Warner put a deputation to a local council , who last year wanted to impose upon us a $ 1000.00 bond for the free use of a water way within the confines of Thorndon Park Reserviour. As a result of this , the council , in their wisdom , unanimously voted against the bond . As a result , we now have another sailing venue. Details are yet to be decided on as for we will conduct our sail days. A victory for the little guy :clap: :clap: :clap:
Cheers, JIM
