But Richard -

What will the temperature be for you come August 3rd - 5th when we are planning to hold SprinterFest?

August 3rd-5th? at worst 30 to 35 F maybe a little rain a blow in sea winds
Tasmania has a temperate climate snow is only on the highlands at the Mt Wellington tiers down to the 300 metre level at worst.
Mind you I cant predict what Global changes will be by the time the sprinter- fest takes place.

I knew I wasn't losing my memory! I don't think Mr. Seek quite believes my story about that midwatch in San Fran. I told y'all before that, like Richard, I would not lie! Well, not as much as him, anyway.

Hey Richard, tell us a snake story. When we Yanks see anything on TV about Australia, it's always about the killer spiders and snakes. We get the idea that you guys walk around in metal trousers. Do you have that dangerous Australian Brown Snake there in Tazzy?

Have we got snakes? down in tasmania
Ha' Your rattle snake ain't even in the race
Yes Australia has the most venomous snakes in the world
Tasmania has three main variants looking out for a sun bake, the most common is the Tasmanian Tiger snake [Notechis Scutatus] but in fairness to the reptile they are quite shy and stay away from humans, where you come unstuck with them is stepping on them, of course they flare up and bite usually on the leg we have the Copper head and the small whip snake as well but they are a RARE SPECIE UNLESS YOU GO DEEP INTO THE BUSH THESE DAYS AS THEIR HABITAT HAS BEEN DESTROYED.
Now I remember long time ago back in another century cause I would not lie When living down in the country I had a new Valiant Chrysler Panel van, with the 318 fireball motor that need an exhaust rear pipe after bottoming out on a wooden bride sideways at 115 MPH, and a service so went to the local garage next door as big as you could want, I swear half of Tasmania's junk was stored in that shed, As The mechanic need the plugs , I said I'll nick next door and get them, so off I raced at the break of sun set, only to come back to the hangers door! "Shut it was," so I pulled the switch for the door to slide, and Bugger me dead if there wasn't a monster four foot snake on the rise, "I wouldn't lie" but if it wasn't for the fact that dam snake was on a concrete apron he would have had me smack in the middle of my tum. tum, did I let a sequel and hollowed to the world , Richard the mechanic came around too see what all the ruckus was about, and saw the thing slipping and sliding trying to get it's grip on the ground, strewth it had a go at him too, good thing snakes haven't got legs, Well it turned out to be a Dad and Dave's show,it was a live comedy show. Richard the mechanic said to Geoff! 'His old man" said I fix that ol' slippery thing, and out of all the junk that was in the shed! He grabbed my brand new tail pipe and flattened the thing all of six foot long, man this story is being stretched a mile, but it's true I would not lie not to mention that the u bend in the pipe was dead straight the time that snake was long time dead, as for the van it turned autumn Red , but matched the white walls real nice, so I have dreams of Christine from time to time just like Steven king that dam snake in a van keeps on coming back to haunt me , from time to time, mind you there was a big Spider the following day, when off to Melbourne I was a going , I dropped the sun visor down, and down he dropped into my lap! By then I was five foot from the ground, straight through the sun roof , did the Harrier jump jet thing, and went ballistic full burn, but thats another story about Spiders, big hairy ones down under.
Yes it's true snakes are on the lose in Summer time quick time when the girl goes to the bush to squat awhile, that's when snakes sliver through the grass and come out from behind the tree of life, and disappear down behind the hole, and history begins.
Gee you guys have been watching too much of Bindi and Steve Irwin
S'sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss;'t

I believe you John. I also believe that you must be crazy, I mean, tough to endure temperatures below freezing.

Not me. I have water in my vains.

Seek...not exactly freezing sitting here in my Lazy Boy recliner, sipping a wee drop of the red grape, and reading Richard's snake stories.

Having read it, however, I wasn't very impressed. He wrote about the "monster 4 ft. snake" he encountered...heck, we have earthworms longer than that right here in Ohio. Four feet...that's the length of our American size "medium" condom...(oops, am I allowed to reveal that?)

Yeah, Richard...on the weather tonight they say we're getting another winter storm Monday afternoon, lasting until Wednesday morning. So, this could be it, mates...the white death is descending once again. I have changed my Last Will and Testament. I'm leaving you my potted plant, Richard...or is it my planted pot...whatever. But you must come get it. Wear a coat and your mittens.

Okay, I'm off to bed.

John
