Hi Heather & Matt

This yarn was prompted by a message on a Christmas card from Brendon the teacher mentioned here.

I had earlier this year sent him a copy of my book and he suggested I write something about 'The Academy' plus a couple of the other things we got up to in those days.

It's interesting how what seemed just a bit of fun (there wasn't a lot of entertainment there in those days) almost 50 years ago is still remembered fondly by those of us who took part in it. Gunther also always refers to it in our infrequent phone conversations; probably a bit about recalling our long lost youth I guess, and there was to be an air of excitement around the old Coober Pedy in those days.

Cheers Terry
