Well done to all of the team who made this event happen from setup to pack up .....  :Clap)  :thanks 

Jason, David, Steve, Felicity, Julie, Paul, Andrew, Janelle, Duncan, Mike, Brad, Beardy, Dale, Darcy, sorry if I missed anyone. And those who stayed back to help pack up / clean up many thanks indeed.  :thumb  :thumb  :thumb I was back over there for several hours today sweeping & wiping floors, picking up rubbish etc.

I'll reconsider allowing camping available to men in future after the state I found the men's toilets in this afternoon. I'm not big on cleaning my own crapper, let alone cleaning up after filthy bastards who can't manage to cr@p properly in a toilet and seem to think an amenities block is a great place to leave all their empty beer bottles and food scraps.  :OMG  :walkplank

Official figures thru the door: 1030
I think the morning rain kept sunday's numbers lower than it would have been. Once we got over the line (sunday arvo) we opened the gates and just let the stragglers in.

Overall I think we put down a pretty good show.

Again, a big thank you to all of the workers & exhibitors.  :yourock

congrats on a great show fitzy, all the hard work doesn't go un noticed and is appreciated.

As for the toilets, I clean public toilets for a living, and was pissed off myself how I found them late Saturday night when I went in,
I picked up toilet paper with cr@p on it from the urinal area, and food scraps out of the hand basins.....WTF!?
no doubt the same crew continued on till all hrs of the morning, and left the mess you found.....shits me to tears(pardon the pun)

Just ask ya mate that was helping out at the bbq, Im sure he can help you with who they might be, I know he was a bit put off by a few  that cant hold their piss later in the night. :Hunting)

As for the grass etc everywhere, it was due to recent mowing, and wet weather......suggest maybe next time we get a broom/etc and ask  all users to help keep amenities clean......shouldn't need to ask as most are good and will happily help out......as usual  it was only a small few that ruin it for everyone.

Thanks again for all your efforts.
