It wasn’t as bad as I thought purely because you tend to concentrate on the weight of your swing and the area you want to hit and as horrible as it sounds you forget that it’s a turkey at all. I had no idea what the insides of a duck or a turkey would look like or even how hard the duck would be to pluck but I can definitely say ...

The night turned out with us managing to get a team together for bar wars and managing to come second winning 2 free jugs and entry to the koala sanctuary. I did have to get naked in one of the games to get 2nd place. Day 2 we met up with Tom from cairns as well as ti mo, Vicky and Shelby who had all planned to go a walk up to the forts on the island (old gun emplacements and lookout points) so we joined them on the walk. ...
