Lyn, Ruth

If your sending stickers to Ruth, can you please keep one for me to pick up in Brirdsville. My one and only disappeared in the pile of junk mail we had around at the time.

We'll be up there by very soon.

JUNK MAIL! JUNK MAIL!

Call the sticker police immediately. This man must be stopped before more innocent (and very endangered) stickers are thoughtlessly discarded.

Serves you right having to travel to Birdsville to get another one.

Wish it was me. Have a great trip. :-)

There is a bigger issue at stake here, that your frivolity has shrouded in a smoke screen. There is a sticker that is unaccounted for somewhere out there. This means that there is the possibility of a non-EO person placing the sticker on their vehicle, house or forehead and illegally and sanctimoniously getting waves and smiles and accolades for their responsible driving, mowing or walking.

Obviously David has heard of this and the real reason for his visit to Victoria can now be revealed. No-one really believed he was coming to Melbourne in Winter on business did they????

In future. all stickers shall be numbered and registered to members or EO shop customers. It will be their responsibility to ensure correct placement and usage of stickers. We MUST preserve the integrity of the sticker.

Note: If anyone answering to Lone Wolf or Lone Gopher as he has also come to be known approaches and asks for a sticker, immediately call David at EO and report the approach.

Memo to Sgt Bonz of the Sticker Police.

Good to see you out on the beat. It is vitally important that these valuable symbols of our group identity are protected. I am happy to do my share by ensuring that whenever I see an ExplorOz sticker on a 4x4 I should pull that vehicle over and check the bona-fides of the driver to ensure they really are committed to the cause!

If I ever manage to catch up with Lone Wolf/Gopher/Hole digger I will be sure to check that he has his stickers displayed correctly and prominantly and not obscured by all those water carrier thingies!

Yours sincerely
Constable Muddy

Fall In Constable Doe!, (we dont use FIRST NAMES here)

You are in line for a Commendation. May I suggest that the sticker carriers are pulled over by simply driving in front of the vehicle and hitting your brakes. This will pull the vehicle over and indicate our earnest and true goal of ensuring that 4WD's are driven safely and that stickers are only displayed by EO'se.

May I also caution you as to those who not only display but CARRY stickers also. If, during your "post pulling over" search of the vehicle and checking of EO membership cards, or receipts for purchase of goods from the EO shop (which SHALL be carried in lieu of Membership cards) you happen upon a carried or nonstuckonthevehicle sticker, that you insist it is displayed immediately upon said vehicle.

Do not be dismayed if you are told where to stick it, simply advise occupants of vehicle to stick it themselves.

I am reliably informed that there is a convoy of Wombat and Al proportions making its way thru your fair State, so be on the lookout.

Geez thanks Sarge!

Commendation Eh! How many stickers is that worth???

I'll do my best to inspect the expected cavalcade approaching from the north. I'll set up a picket at Port Augusta, if that fails I may Katch them at Kadina. If I miss them there I'll blockade Blyth. If that don't work then I won't let them breach Berri!

There should be willing deputies in all these parts that I can call on so we'll do our best Sarge. If the stickers aren't on we will withhold the EO coffee!!!

Cheers
Constable Doe :-)

Const Doe, The carriers of the aforesaid stickers are not transgressing through Berri this time. They will be Cavalcading in Clare on Monday before Rondezviewing in Robe. To be a Sticker Cop, you need to do your investigative work betterer.

What's with the "Destitute Des"? Feeling down that the visitors are passing you by perhaps????

Now just how did all this Sticker God stuff start anyway???

What a huge laugh this is!

You do know of course that hundreds of them have been mailed off to those that have asked straight up for one or two?. Course, we'll send them. (but we send one with ever shop order anyway). It's just that if you ask for one on the Forum, we forget. Gotta give us a proper reminder in the form of direct communication - aka email. You'd be surprised how much stuff we forget... at least email is in your face until you delete it...if you know what I mean.

I'm pretty sure Wolfie started it in his previous incarnation during the process of joining up and when 'Lone Wolf' was born.

So much fun had by so many!

Michelle, the Sticker God is was and always will be, it is impossible to answer your question "how did it ever get started".

Lone Wolf did stir up the Renaissance of the Sticker God however.

We have heard ancient myths of "being able to email and get a sticker". We know that cannot be true, don't think you can fool us that easily, all you are trying to do is perpetuate the mysticism of the Sticker God, who we believe to be Currently In Melbourne as at 17/7/2004, although it is rumoured that he didnt make the Melbourne Gathering of EO, further adding to the mystique that is: THE STICKER GOD.

Constable's Pesty and Roachie have the convoy from the north in our satellite vision and are directing them to a safety zone, where we will ply them with smooth beverage to gain all the truths of their recent past, before letting them move on to other pastures. A report for Inspector Bonz will be posted as a matter of protocol.

Lonesome Wolf, You need to have an indepth look at yourself.
You were invited to Berri in June and you declined.
Don't know of a EO gathering in Whyalla but there will be one in Robe in early November that Eric is co-ordinationg.
Imprint your paw mark on your diary now so that you have no excuse for not turning up this time.

Robe is the word! (It used to be Grease) Come along Wolfie, and there will be games and prizes and a chance to obtain a certified sticker. Constables Pesty, Muddy Doe and Roachie will be enforcing the stick-on policy.

The Sticker God may have to increase his deity budget and actually come along to some of these EO-ventures
