This week at Casey

Fitzy with the damaged repeater This week a team headed off to Browning Peninsula to repair the repeater and make a few necessary repairs to the famous Browning Hut only to discover it had lost a wrestling match with strong winds - the repeater had blown off its position and was damaged, the guy wires on the hut had snapped, the hut was off its foundations and had shifted approx one metre and the ‘Micky’ toilet had also blown over. 27 August 2010

Gav and Garry We experienced a mixture of weather this week from very calm sunny (but still very cold) days through to 92 knot winds – which makes our life here on station very interesting. This week we’re featuring plenty of scenic photos, the ‘big’ election, the opening of Ray Ray’s Skin Care Clinic, and as part of the Who’s Who on station, we’re introducing Gavan and Gary. 20 August 2010
