@  Leigh90 : (13 November 2018 - 05:02 PM) As an aside to Sunday's car show, I think there were more 'M' plates than 'H' plates. Lots of V8 FJs and rods.    :cruzin:  :auto:
@  Leigh90 : (13 November 2018 - 04:58 PM) I was at a car show at the Maffra car museum on the 11th. They ushered the patrons out of the museum an had the Remembrance ceremony on time. Very moving.
@  VIC-369 : (12 November 2018 - 05:26 PM) I went to the Ringwood Clock Tower which is also the war memorial.  Very moving ceremony with about 300 people there.  They used the chiming of the clock to mark 11:00 then had the bugle sound.  I had tears in my eyes.  The traffic on Maroondah Highway just stopped at the intersection there, the buses and the trains at the nearby station stopped and Ringwood was quiet for a few minutes.  Then a few short readings and songs by a brass band.  I am so glad I went.  Such a great country.
@  Matty_769 : (11 November 2018 - 07:08 PM) Damn it ..... i missed spending it at Albany in 2014 and also overlooked the 2018 special events..... :tantrum: :angry: :censored:

Yarra Glen historic commercial vehicle show today.... there was an announcement with 1 min silence.... i visited the shrine of remembrance for the flag lowering ceremony.  

Where were you David :?:
@  VIC-369 : (11 November 2018 - 12:10 AM) It's Remembrance Day.  Where will you be at 11:00?  It is 100 years since the end of the Great War in 1914. :thankyou:

@  BIG GARY : (06 November 2018 - 07:28 PM) food  a pack of biscuits and coffee ACT Scout  HALL ,But as john hudson said we have a great location in  Vic Compared to other states but we lack Numbers
@  VIC-369 : (06 November 2018 - 12:33 PM) We missed Guy Fawkes Day yesterday.  :ohwell:  Do you still have fireworks and bonfires for that in New Zealand?  It appears on some calendars.  I e-mailed Bavariavan for his 50th birthday yesterday and he wrote back and he is going well.  He is one of the guys who prefer the FaceBook group but we still love them all in the hobby.  Today we are having a big horse race in Melbourne but we have had 38mm or rain since 9am and more over last night.  :knight:  Not the best weather for ladies in their fine clothes. :chicken:
@  VIC-369 : (29 October 2018 - 10:09 PM) Would someone write us a report on the ACT Meeting held yesterday, please?  Who went, how many, any good plates around?  How was the food?  :plates:
@  johnc : (16 October 2018 - 05:28 PM) Very sadly Cedric died.  see this link http://www.plateshed...sabinesnubbing/
@  redeye : (14 October 2018 - 08:32 PM) What happened to Cedric?
@  hoarder1 : (14 October 2018 - 09:39 AM) Hope the Vic meeting goes well today.  I look forward to seeing lots of pictures.  Enjoy the day.
@  johnc : (11 October 2018 - 08:51 PM) I agree that Hidden figures was a great film and enlightening too.  It has been on Foxtel cable more than once and quite a little while ago  at that.  I watched it twice.
@  pageoz : (11 October 2018 - 04:03 PM) Now that we have unfortunately and sadly lost an important resource in Cedric, would it be worthwhile setting up a thread listing those cheats/fakers that he identified for reference.  I wonder if Cedric's site will remain and/or that of the link in Michael Kustermann's License Plates of the World site. 
@  VIC-369 : (08 October 2018 - 09:25 PM) Yes hoarderone :iagree: "Hidden Figures" was also a great movie.  Anyone else have a look when it comes your way on DVD etc.
@  hoarder1 : (08 October 2018 - 08:24 PM) I haven't seen the movie, but will find a copy of the DVD.  I only watch a handful of movies a year.  Just finished watching 'Hidden Figures' about the computing women at NASA in the 1960s.  It was a fantastic movie. 
@  pageoz : (08 October 2018 - 03:49 PM) Very true VIC-369. Saw the film last week and really enjoyed it.  Particularly if you grew up in that time.  I know some youngsters who saw the movie "couldn't see it".  Particularly the ladies having to dress in their "uniforms" when they came to work.  
@  VIC-369 : (07 October 2018 - 10:38 PM) We saw the movie "Ladies in Black" tonight.  Great Aussie movie set in Sydney in 1959.  You might think it is a "Chick Flick" but I enjoyed the culture and scenery of the time.  They have even computer generated trams running in the streets and nice old ferries and cars.  I didn't see any NSW plates but the whole thing is very authentic looking.
@  MattP : (05 October 2018 - 07:15 PM) Thank you Shedders for being so generous with your "likes" . . .
@  johnc : (03 October 2018 - 10:26 AM) Sorry Andy, but I kindof like cricket.  Easily spend an afternoon in my folding chair under a tree watching my grandsons play in their comps.  The chair has a nice holder for a stubby of VB too.
@  MattP : (03 October 2018 - 10:10 AM) Thanks for the bank details, obviously I should pay more attention to the NPCC newsletter
@  VIC-369 : (03 October 2018 - 12:49 AM) E-maling it to you MattP  :book:  What's Cricket?  :laughter:
@  hoarder1 : (02 October 2018 - 04:57 PM) NPCC Bank details are usually printed on the inside front cover of the magazine, MattP, although I only came into the shoutbox to read about sport :)
@  daanton : (02 October 2018 - 11:30 AM) A good game the GF was: a beaut of a game! Even though :pies:  lost, they certainly gave :eagles:  a run for their money—certainly way more than :demons:  did....! :poke:
@  MattP : (02 October 2018 - 11:28 AM) Can someone please message me the NPCC bank account details as I need to deposit some money there and I sent in the bit of paper with those details on it with my annual membership cheque so don't keep a copy.
