You have prompted me to contribute something John ................Thinking about TOMM , if they reverted to ordinary newsprint type paper they could reduce their costs and subsequently reduce the cost of the magazine .
We here in WA .Great Southern will be doing a Tractor Trek in a couple of weeks time ....out on the Denmark coast .Should be good for a report and pictures.

Rumour has it on another forum that north of the border a show had 200 tractors, 150 trucks and at least 90 engines, must have been a national rally ? I will have to take a look at the next Oily Rag for a full report ?

Hi All,
Reader's contributions were a bit thin, but I've managed to scrape up some info to produce #52. Thanks to those who helped out.
It has just been posted so hopefully you'll have by end of next week.

Sorry Typak no report on this rally was provided. However, a plethora of photo's was forwarded. No doubt you have already seen them as they were posted on this forum.

Got our copy a week ago but it is still sitting on top of the coffee table. Work is annoying me no end after our great trip Tassie. You live in a great State Teddles just sad about the drought down there.

Hey Cobba, when were you in Tassie? Why didn't you visit?? Deeply disappointed. Drought fixed with my crying copious amount of tears. :-(
Next time mate, please.

Hi Teddles,
sorry about not making the effort to catch up, but we were on a real tight timetable with a full day each minute. We saw many things of interest and there are so many old homes around the place and almost all are in fantastic condition along with the old buildings in Hobart. Went to the Museum near Constitution Dock and found the oldest hydraulic lift in Australia and it worked on the town water supply. It was reconditioned not too long ago and is a great thing of beauty and is functional. Also loved the big old Steam crane at the same Dock.
Next visit South will be a more leisurely visit with time to meet and greet people just like you fella. Sorry we didn't do it this visit.

Hi Cobba - You are forgiven- for now!! Are you going to the National Rally at Hamilton? I could meet you there if you are.
Meanwhile, I'll polish up the collection and see if I can find something that actually runs, in readiness for your next journey to the deep south :-)
Keep happy
Teddley.

Hi Teddles,
I will not be attending the National Rally until some common sense is made with the NHMA mob. Plus having to pay to exhibit is another thing that I refuse to do unless I get a share of the profits. I do wish that the Club holding the event does well despite my feelings towards the governing body who should bare the full cost of running the event and should also provide the fencing for compounds as well. What do we pay them for if they don't contribute?

Sorry mate, it is my high horse project.

O.......OH!
The deadline for Oily Rag #53 (June/July) has passed and it is with some disappointment to advise that I do not have enough material to produce this (current) issue.

At time of writing I had just received a report on the National Rally. This brings a total of 4 articles to the magazine. In my honest opinion certainly not value for your subscription money.

So, I guess I’m trying to say that #53 is either going to be printed as is and be a somewhat poor excuse for a magazine, late in publishing and distribution or abandoned until I have sufficient material to produce a magazine (probably the August/September edition, if it makes it that far).

In the interim, I’ll have a good think by asking you the readers the question;
Is it worth continuing with “The Oily Rag"?

If you do not wish to share your (constructive) thoughts and views publicly, you can send me a private message (PM) via this media.
Your responses will assist towards my decision making on “The Oily Rags’" future.

MY SINCEREST APOLOGIES

I thank you for your time.

Best wishes, jayvee

FOOTNOTE: Whilst the staff of “The Oily Rag” consists of 1..... (me), it is most difficult for me to cover the many events happening across Australia, with several being held on the same weekend and I have relied upon you the reader to help cover.
Admittedly, due to ongoing health issues over the past 12-18 months, it has been difficult for me to attend certain events.
Where possible, I have made every effort by "stretching the friendship" to help out individuals and clubs by negotiating an agreement in supporting and promoting their activities related to our hobby.
Sadly, the other party fail to honour that agreement and it becomes a one way street to their advantage and benefit.

---------- Post added at 01:21:16 PM ---------- Previous post was at 01:00:10 PM ----------

It would be remiss of me not to thank those who provided articles for #53. Much appreciated.

Hi john,
Sorry to hear that there is not enough material to put another great issue together at the moment. I for one will be happy to wait for something to arrive in the future. I cant send any info on our current project as it is only partly done so it will have to wait a bit, sorry.
Keep getting your health better and hopefully some big articles will pour in especially after the Nationals rally alone.

You have my support!

Hello John
It seems as though it is a battle to get enough material for every fine edition. How would making the publication a quarterly publication fare material wise?

It would be a crying shame not to have the Oily Rag and if it does not continue then we have only ourselves to blame for not contributing.
I'll make sure lots of pictures from Dalby this coming week-end will get to you John. I might even be able to edumicate myself better enough to rite a story.

Cheers then
Scott

Hello John,

You are 1 person producing a magazine which is more than most of us can say.

Please look after your health first and when the magazine is available I am always happy to read it.

All the best,
Wayne

It would be a shame to lose a good publication but i would understand your reasons if you did decide it was getting a bit too much. I agree with Scott that quarterly might be an option you could look at, then it would give you more time to really fine tune each edition. I seriously can't understand how you do it all yourself. I wish i had the ability to contribute something to it but i am not really the literate type. I admire people with the ability and confidence to do articles in magazines.
