Well, here we go again on a new thread for the Aussie's round 3 :dance:

AUSSIE THREAD (2)

I have asked the Captain if we can get this thread put as a sub forum outside the asia pacific sub forum ..if that makes sense..will make it easier to find and it gets you to the thread quicker..

the link above will get you back to #2 aussie thread but i made it so you can go to the first page ...

and here is the last page of that thread

LAST PAGE OF OLD AUSSIE THREAD

take care

Better still if we had our own forum, I think sometimes people have a lot of trouble finding us here!

BTW in South Florida there is a club AussieKiwiclub.com, we get together for bbq's or other get togethers most of the days special to Australia or New Zealand. There is an Aussie rules Team in Fort Lauderdale called the "Fighting Squids" and 20/20 Cricket is played at Lauderhill, (mainly the Carribean teams, I think)
