Re: Long time Wok

Hey Mate, It's tough work, travelling you'll be living in shared accomodation. Caravan/Truck with +6 other people. Days are long but if you aren't afraid of hardwork its good fun. I'd recommend trying out with a local operator first to see if you can handle the physical demands of the work before yo...

Re: 2014 RES

Huss, I think you are being extreme. That's the best East Coast royal show lineup I've seen in a while. Ekka and Melbourne are totally pathetic IMO. Though Adelaide and Perth do it so much better!

User Names / Security

Hey Team,

Just wondering if we've had troubles with people's user names being highjacked? I'm sorry just reading over a few posts on here and i don't mean to sound rude, but they seem like they've been posted by Nigerian scammers?

Cheers,

Ok,thanks had no idea it had changed ownership. Techno Jump and air maxx is a total double-up. They really can't afford the space with two very similar rides! Yeah durkins portable wheel is ugly, much prefer the sky master!

Re: Ekka 2013

Agree with you Hurricane. I'm disappointed with this line-up. Where is hard rock these days anyway?? It hasn't been at a show I've read a review on for a few months now???! It's also normally on the north run but it's a no show. It's seems to be a stale staple of rides, there isn't much variety like...

Re: Ipswich Show 2013

March's gear does paniyri or gympie these days. Haven't seen any of it out there for years. Last zipper I saw their ekkafan stayed racked on the back of a truck :( will be interesting to see what shows up though.

I reckon flash dance, hard rock, cha cha, dogems & power surge will possibly show
