Hi ExplorOz Reader,
| ||Tip of the Week - All registered Visitors and Members are able to store their contact and address details on the "My Details" tab (shown at the top left hand of the site when logged in). The only feature on this tab that is shown publicly is your Screen Name, all other details are private, and allow us to display the correct time and weather details for your location. This information is also used when ordering from the shop to pre-fill your details. So if you haven't had a look at this for a while, check the My Details tab and update any needed information.|
Raffle Prize Winner Drawn - Congratulations to Member - marg-rich (who purchased their ticket via the online shop) and were drawn as the winners of this one of a kind artwork.
The prize draw took place at the National Gathering on Wednesday night, and all funds raised from tickets will be donated to Louth RFDS clinic. We will announce the final figure for funds raised, as well as more news from the Gathering in our newsletter next week.
Bloomin' News - Early Nancy she is, a sure sign that spring is here. Right across the country you can find her popping up in forests and woodland, on inland sand dunes and loamy flats. She wears a short bunch of pink or white flowers, and along with a couple of shiny strap-shaped leaves that is all that makes up her small form, often only about 15cm high. What she lacks in size she makes up in numbers, as these little lily-like flowers can cover large expanses, even in grazed paddocks.
Wurmbea dioica is her rather unattractive official name; Early Nancy is much more evocative.
ExplorOz Sponsors Outback Challenge - We are pleased to announce that ExplorOz are official sponsors of the upcoming 2014 Outback Challenge. This iconic 4WD event will be taking place from the 17th to the 24th of October, and as part of our contribution, 20 lucky event marshals will be receiving an ExplorOz Spare Wheel Cover and Windscreen Sticker.
