With the kayak poll ownership poll started by redphoenix, I thought the locations of members would make a good question, with that curiosity factor

Dodge,

Can I respectfully suggest that you add New Zealand in as an option if it is possible to amend the poll? It is far more likely that the kiwis will be reading this site than anywhere else in the rest of the world. Not only are they just over the ditch but yak fishing is if anything much more established in NZ than here in OZ.

Would be interesting to see how many of them are members or visitors.

Just a suggestion :?

Good post bu the way :D

Respect is not needed; dickhead would be appropriate as we have more kiwis on board than other categories which are limited to 10.

I would gladly have amended it as its an error on my part, and checking the edit, I't appears I can only alter the original post now the poll is running :oops:

I'll add a note to my original post as a token correction, and thanks for pointing it out mate

fixed up thanks to Peril

Unfortunately, due to the change in ownership of this web site and the lack of response by the owners to my requests to remove my email address from all administrative-level notifications and functionality, I have decided to remove my posts on AKFF. Thank you for the great times, the fantastic learning experiences and the many many fish. If you are desperate for the old content of this particular post, it is available below base64 encoded and bzip2 compressed.

Red.

Thanks Dave

I knew what they said about you wasn't right; I can now remove the egg from my face, and the kiwis will be pleased :lol: :lol:

I can't do the poll 'cause I can't find North Qld on the list. I know it is not officially separate to the southern part of Qld, but, crickey, everyone knows we are different up here.

Oh well, might just have to click Qld after all. :cry:

Woops, I have slipped to 1%! I will have to throw my weight behind Queensland - even if they can only play Rugby League, but not Rugby (is there any other??).

Nick can your 1%, feel the weight of Europe on your shoulders :lol:

Over there I suppose you would be aware the Wallabies gave Boks a big flogging the other week at Suncorp stadium, which was needed, because the All Blacks did the same to us earlier :cry:

Hi Richo, yes, the responsibility of keeping my side up on behalf of Europe is almost too much to bear. Re the Rugby, I bet you did not know I am an ex South African ("Redro" is a well known brand of South African fishpaste - as South African as Vegemite is Australian)! We moved to Melbourne from Cape Town in 97. I say "ex" as I really think of myself as an Australian now - if anybody asks me here where I am from the natural response is Australia (I work for a (very fine) American company - but have decided not to call myself an "American" as that is unlikely to score me too many points over here!). This whole nationality thing is becoming a bit confusing - so maybe I will just stay a "Queenslander" for now! And when it comes to the Rugby WC in France next year, well we shall just have to see! It is quite fun being a global citizen - I will have lived in three host countries for three Rugby WCs in a row. I just wish I could be in Australia this summer to see Australia winning the Ashes back - I suspect the whole series is going to be a huge amount of fun and I am sorry I will not be around to soak it all up.

Yes did realise you were from SA, that's why I mentioned the Boks and Rugby.

Loyalty is difficult for people who arrive here; I have 2 kiwi mates [between us] who are naturalised Aussies, when the union is on between NZ and AUS, one now supports the Wallabies, and the other remains loyal to the Blacks; I treat them accordingly, one gets a beer and the other the finger.

You can't go wrong as a Queenslander mate :lol: anywhere in the world

I don't think it is a conscious rational decision as such. I never thought to myself "I live here now - therefore I must support all Australian teams". It is something that just happens one day without one realising it. All I know is that I have supported the Reds (for what it was worth! I finally cancelled my season ticket before this season) for a long time now - and felt enormous pride at our achievements in the Commonwealth Games.

No doubt about that mate, you have to support your team from the heart, as that's the only way to cope with the highs and lows in sport. :wink:

I must have missed it last time as well - voted. Suprised to see that QLD has the most members, I always had the perception that NSW had the stronger contingent on here.
