Hey guys,

Just a quick post to say thanks for a great weekend!

It was great to catch up with everyone at the nationals and hear Bellett stories from the last year or so and see the new cars on the road. A good turnout considering the distance and some worthy trophy winners!

I know I didn't bring a Bellett but atleast I had some Jap tin along for the ride which ended up taking me over 600 miles around Tassie! I've got some great pics from the weekend although not as many as I would have liked because in all the excitement I forgot my camera! Do'h!

Also, a big thank you to the organisers for letting Alice and I get up at the Nationals dinner and talk about the Sh!tbox Rally and an even bigger thank you to the people who have donated already. I will be starting another thread with details of an offer from one of our members to shave his beard in the name of charity so keep an eye out for that in the coming days.

In the meantime, the event that we are running in can be found here: http://www.shitboxrally.com.au/

And ofcourse if you would like to donate to this cause then please go to our support site her: https://shitboxrally2015.everydayhero.com/au/shitsky-and-hutch. We will be updating this page over the coming weeks and adding more details etc as time progresses.

Viva la Belletts! Viva la Nationals!

Thanks to all those watching and cheering. I'm sorry you all were not able to along in the flesh, but were tnought of and spoken about in many conversations.
There were some great moments, like an older lady reading Doris' story board and relating that she had a Bellett for 32 years, then being able to point out the bloke she sold it to 14 years ago who was also down for a look.
Things were well organised and ran like a clock, so many thanks to Peggy and Steve.
Great raffle too, I now have a set of 6 Bellett mugs!

It was a very fun night.

We are home now, coming off the Spirit yesterday morning and making the straight run home. The contrast of the Hume's comparative straight and boringness was extreme after so much to see everywhere we went in Tas.
Doris went great and now has another 1100 miles under her belt. (Skirt?)
Another contrast, its 30 degrees! Where did that come from??
Cheers, Matt.

Welcome almost home :P
Donkey has been hating on me for the last 3 weeks because he missed out on the Tassie Nationals.
I have promised him I'll make it up to him with a road trip somewhere next year..... does Toowoomba pass as "somewhere" if it's only 2hrs up the road? :?

cool, We'll be there.

I told him if he's a good boy I might take him to Cairns in the new year for a spot of fishing too.
