Charity Shield

On Saturday 24th February we set off the Mudgee to watch the  South Sydney Rabbitohs and St. George Illawarra Dragons do battle in the 2018 Rugby League Charity Shield.

The Bunnies were victorious in a great game.

It was a long trip home, made even worse by the terrible suspension bridge.

The family featured in many photos and Ozzy and Gus appeared on the TV coverage (when the dragons run out).

A bit of rain on Friday cooled us down and a roaring fire kept us warm as the temperature dropped into single digits.

You can tell that it is becoming more known as it was busy with four sites and cars coming and going.
