I have just arrived home from my first ever letterhead meet... and have
just said to myself. I WILL NEVER AGAIN MISS OUT ON A MEET AGAIN.
The meet was hosted by Bod Harper of Vogue Signs in the township of
Burrawang which is about 1 and a half hours south west of Sydney. No
matter where I travel in this great country it always surprises me with
hidden beauty of this land, and the people of the beautiful town of
Burrawang welcomed us with opened arms. The meet was made all the more
exciting by having Steve and Barb Shortreed here! The work (if you could
call it work) consisted of sign writing the Pub, the school, the general
store, the butchers, cemetery. (I'll be uploading photos soon.) They say
a picture paints a thousand words so I'll let the photos do the talking.
Friday started with temps around 35c, with the sun beaming down fresh
country air the place was a buzz with excitement, spending my time
slapping enamel on the butcher shop and bashing out a mock block on some
text, and talking crap I was having a great time. Friday afternoon
knocked off & had few quite beers with everyone at the pub and grabbed
an early night...
Saturday was more of the same, lots of laughs and loads of paint, what
more could a man want?? Saturday night the town of Burrawang hosted a
dinner dance. A great meal, some heal & toe polka kicked off the evening
festivities... It would be a night to remember, if I could only
Sunday morning was like a scene from Dawn of the Dead, "Very tired" sign
writers sprawled out, moaning and staggering their way up the main
street to breakfast, after a quick breakfast we had the morning to
finish up and I was on my way back home....
I would just like to express my thanks to all the older signer's who
took the time to talk to me over the weekend, let me pick their brains
and work along side them. I have gained more knowledge this weekend than
I have in a long time.
Look forward to Toowoomba next year,
