How many Aussies do we have on this website?

I am prepared to start an Aussie version of the famous Grab Bag. Happy to cater for children or adults or both.

Let me know if you are interested and we will get things under way.

Could it reach over the ditch?

Can't see why not. Keep the ANZAC spirit alive.

I am sure there are more than 3 aussie and kiwi collectors out there.

I am a little surprised at the lack of interest.

I would be happy to donate some patches to help get this started. Assuming there is enough interest to get it started ...

Last call for the Aussie / Kiwi grab bag. It starts its journey on Monday and will travel from Melbourne to Sydney.

I know for a fact that there are more than 4 Aussies and Kiwis on this forum. Make the most of it and join in.

Could TRS from Wellington NZ send me his address please as he is next on the list after Colin.

Could 80 miles high contact me please (on the email address in my profile).

You are next on the list after Craig from NZ.

Mike Dixon, I know you are out there. And other aussies or kiwis. Join the fun.

Aussie Grab Bag currently in NZ with Craig.

Any other kiwis interested before the box heads back across the ocean?

Obviousman, the grab bag is a box of space memorabilia sent between collectors. In the tradition of the long running U.S. grab bag you make a contribution from your collection and take something of equal or lesser value. If anyone can correct or improve this description please do.

I can report the Grab bag is back in Australia - it arrived at my address today. I'm impressed with the quantity and quality of collectibles in it! I'll have a good look at it over the weekend and be ready to forward it next week. Who's next?

The famous Aussie Grab Bag has returned from its travels around Oz and NZ.

I hope all who took part enjoyed the experience and found something of interest. The contents are quite different to when it started its journey. It seems someone (perhaps Colin Burgess?) has added a nice copy of Selecting the Mercury 7 signed by Colin.

I will add a few more goodies and it is ready to go again.

Who's next?

I have a box of space related goodies sitting at my house. This was the result of the first trip of the Aussie Grab Bag last year.

If you are in Oz or NZ and want the Aussie Grab Bag to visit you, please contact me. There are some very nice items in the grab bag.

Last call for the Aussie/NZ grab bag. I know there are more aerospace enthusiasts/collectors in Oz and NZ than have taken part in this. Come on folks, here is your opportunity for a bit of fun and you will probably find something you want in the grab bag and you also have a chance to pass on duplicates to other collectors.

If no interest, the contents will be given to a worthy home such as an Australian Space Education Facility.

Come on folks. Enjoy this!

I'm in for sure. C'mon all you other lurking Aussies and Kiwis; this a great opportunity that Ian has organised, so let's get behind him and support the Down Under grab bag!
