Andrew and Ian, do you mind if a get some quotes to have some flags made up small enough that they can be placed upon a yak especially in yellow so that they stand out also as a safety flag, with the Heroes on the Water emblin and you can sell them as a fundraiser.

I can pay for the production and sell them and place all monies raised in the bank account when you have it or alernatively let me know first if you think it is worth while and secondly how you would like it done.

I am going to get a large flag made up at my cost so it can be used at events etc and i want to take it overseas and to places in Australia for great photographs.

I think a photograph in Afghanistan would be nice with the troops support.

Hi Henderson,

All good mate. Go for it. I think that is a good idea for the safety flags.

As for the big flag, it would also be a good idea if you are travelling around and put up at events. And in Afghanistan as well with the troops behind it. That way they know we are here to help if need be when they return.

Thanks.

Cheers and tight lines,
Ian

Hi all,

Now that HOWAUS is officially a non-for-profit organisation, i am now in the process of starting up the QLD chapter of HOWAUS. Will be looking for people who would like to join the committee and be part of the big picture. Please let me know your interest. The more the merrier. :grin:
The only stipulation is that you must reside in QLD. (Go QUEENSLANDER) :grin:

Cheers and tight lines,
Ian
