What a conference and what a fantastic location! The graziers and residents of Winton must be happy that we brought the rain with us and although it hampered some of the evening plans, we don't think anyone will begrudge the outback of some much needed rain.

As we can all appreciate, a huge amount of planning and organisation is involved in hosting a conference so once again, we would like to extend our gratitude to Margaret and her super team, as well as the people of Winton for making it such an enjoyable time for all.

In addition, we would like to show our appreciation to all of the speakers for giving up their valuable time to travel to Winton, most of whom have also kindly provided their presentations which can be downloaded below.

Finally, a conference is not possible without energetic and positive minded delegates as well as support from the many sponsors which assist in keeping the costs for delegates to a minimum. All sponsors are recognised below.

We look forward to seeing you all again in 2007!
