That's how long it's been since the Kempsey Cannonballs have defeated the Hastings Valley Vikings.
Even that date is uncertain with club stalwarts Allan Nugent and Braden Farrawell unable to give a precise date.
The day at Crescent Head was near perfect for the Cannonballs with first grade, reserves and 18's recording victories while Vikings were too strong in the 16's and 14's.
Brady Hollis was the star in 18's with a double in their 36-12 win while Jarrod Tassell scored two in reserve grades 40-0 romp.
Then the mighty Cannonballs rolled onto the field for a match that pitted first and last together.
After going down the left constantly, Vikings eventually got their rewards early as winger Sebastian Pankiewicz collected his own grubber to score in the corner.
Kempsey sparked into action though as Geoffrey Oliver proved too hard to tackle close to the line.
Vikings then kicked off and found themselves back behind the try-line seconds later.
Half-back Caedan Allan made a break straight off the kick off before the ball found the hands of flanker Jackson Korn who ran away to score.
The Cannonballs used the wind to their advantage throughout the half with a strong kicking game which paid dividends as Lachlan Munday chased hard after a drop punt.
Pankiewicz proceeded to knock the ball dead intentionally, constituting a professional foul.
A penalty try was awarded and the winger given a yellow card.
With only 14-men, Vikings hit back just before half-time through Lyndon Gale as the Cannonballs led into the break.
Hastings Valley came out strong in the second half to make for a tight contest.
Korn went over again before Tyler Allan kicked a penalty goal minutes later to open a lead of 10.
Vikings five-eight David Kennedy utilised an overlap to score and bring the score back within three at 36-33.
One of the quickest man on the North Coast put the game beyond doubt later though as Owen Blair ran down the left sideline to go past defenders and seal victory.
The Cannonballs were brought down to 14-men in the final minutes with a red card to Zac Tyne but the spirit of the men in orange and black ensured there'd be no comeback.
The day also saw Kempsey raise $800 for the Mark Hughes Foundation in memory of former Cannonball Duncan Cutler who lost his battle with brain cancer last year.
Kempsey Cannonballs 41 (Tries; Geoffrey Oliver, Jackson Korn 2, Corey Gale, Owen Blair, Lachlan Munday (penalty try), Conversions; Tyler Allan 3, Penalties; Tyler Allan) defeated Hastings Valley Vikings 33 (Tries; Sebastian Pankiewicz, Lyndon Gale, Matt Fieldsend, Tom Woods, David Kennedy, Conversions; David Kennedy 4).
