|On Friday the 24th May 2019, the 'gong' sounded at around 7:00am to alert the community it was ratting day. The ladies packed bags with eats and drinks for the men before they set off with their dogs to hunt rats. This ratting day was the nicest it has been in a long time! The sun was shining and best of all there was no rain! Later on in the morning the women, in their groups, headed to the patches to start preparing a yummy lunch for their men. After their bellies are filled the men must once again head back to the settlement still continuing to hunt rats to get back in time for the counting and measuring of the tails! The team that won this year was 'Jacks Pieces' they took both prizes for the most tails and longest tail, measuring 30.8cm. All together 407 tails were caught.
