Is there a "staging post" or a meeting point where the Vics will be driving to Winton on Friday morning?

Default Friday

Boxxy,


I think some people are going to practice on the Friday so will be leaving early AM, most will be driving up in the afternoon in time for the happy hour at the pub (that would be me)

Yeah, I am wanting to get there early enough to watch some of the practice then do some of the tourist type things in the arvo, I have to head back to Melbourne on Saturday around noon for a wedding, then back up on Sunday morning.

Stiffy,

Be very careful calling Boxhead "Boxxy". I mistakenly referred to him as "Boxy' in Thread 933768 on 4.12.08 Ref. '6' IP:150.101.58.154 and copped this in return:-

"Hey Baz. - I assume you are talking to me. If so - my name is Boxhead - or David."

Then again I didn't include the second x in Boxxy so you might get away with it without getting your knuckles smacked.

Baz.

Hey there Baz, dont get so upset, I already have 1 real name and about 5 nicknames, just didnt need any more.

If I have upset you then I will appologise, but mate, get a life.

David,

You haven't upset me, but you have a really short memory. I think you are the one that got upset. Check out your comments on the Thread of the 4.12.08. Talk about thin skinned.

Baz, I am not here to get into a pissing competition with you, but mate you are the one who has bought it up after a very long time, quoteing thread numbers and even IP address's.

David,

Let's not go overboard here. You gave me a spray for not referring to you by your correct title for which I sincerely apologize. I was merely warning Stiffy that he could probably expect the same treatment as his offence was similar to mine. We have to be consistent now don't we, or were you just having a shot at me? I would be really interested in your answer as would many others who will read this thread.

As far as quoting thread numbers etc., is concerned, that's how I operate. I don't say anything unless I can prove it and back it up with facts, which is exactly what I did.

As far as I am concerned, the hatchet is buried. In future, you will be known only as Boxhead or David.

Baz

Maybe my memory is no good? I went searching for my "spray" but could not find it, I thought I mearly said something along the lines of "Hey Baz, not sure if your talking to me or not but my name is David or Boxhead"
If that constitutes a spray in your opinion then we both must have had very different lives.
I would have assumed that a man such as yourself being an x highway patrolman would have had many more Sprays alot worse than that?

And in so far as (I quote) "Stiffys offence" (your words not mine) It seems to have been a one of thing.
I mentioned it to you as it appeared as if you had decided this was my name and had been reffering to me as Boxy for quiet a while both here on the forum and face to face at the Nationals.

Mate,

'Boxy' was meant as a term of endearment. Similar to someone calling me Bazzy. That doesn't ruffle my feathers and I was quite surprised to receive your response. Let's forget about it now as the Forum wasn't meant for this type of crap.
