Hi Tim
Sorry to take so long to reply. I somehow have two members profiles on this and can't seen to get rid of one. I don't hunt myself, but know heaps of people that do. If you ever think about coming over here to NZ be sure to get in touch and I'll jack you up with the right contacts.

Cheers

Tim,

Yep, I'll be there. I'm staying at the Days Inn Airport. Monday, I'm in Billy G's class and on Tues. I'm taking Dennis Compton's Class. I will be working the CTBS booth in the PM on Wed. and Thurs. afternoon. I don't own a cell phone so if you want to get ahold of me call the Day's Inn and leave of message or let me know where we could meet and have a cold one.

Tim -- the pic shows R28 at a mutual aid job with the city of Wilmington, I spoke to a few of the officers at Station 28 and it's being replaced with a Rescue Pumper. Saw plenty of work in this county, that's for sure.
