Yarns

Australians are known for their tradition of story telling. In Australian vernacular, these stories are known as ‘yarns’, perhaps because they are sometimes spun like wool.

One of the great things about any club is the social interaction that occurs as a sideline to the hobby, and of course the yarns that result. This page is intended to hold some of the great yarns that have come out of the club, and elsewhere.
