Laying rest once and for all to the too often asked question ‘Where the *** *** is Copley?’ what can only be described as a stroke of genius by the Copley Awareness Group (CAG), with assistance from the RAF to either confirm or deny the presence of this too often forgotten outback bastion. While swarms of tourists pass by the town, oblivious to its many services, perplexed locals have been pondering the problem and the answer came literally from high above. CAG president, Theodore Bogsworth called upon his Rotary Club pal and long term ally Captain Strangelove, group leader of the Orion P3 Squadron based in Edinburgh, Adelaide. The $600,000 mission finally received approval after Strangelove convinced military command that the value of the Orion fleet could be proven statistically if the location and whereabouts of Copley could be confirmed, thereby enabling lost tourism revenue to finally flow into the town, a percentage of which would be allocated by CAG to help with escalating refueling costs of the Orion fleet. The success of the mission rests upon the publication of photos from todays mission, which will be sent to tourism operators around the world who oddly denied that Copley exists or is a tourism destination. There is absolutely no confirmation as yet but rumour has it that other lost towns will be put back on the map as an extension of the CAG-RAF mission.
