    Hi all, just popping this back up after the glitch to remind that the annual Convoy from Boondall to the Dubs at the Abbey is on tomorrow morning starting at 8am:
    Sunday, April 15 - 2018 Dubs at the Abbey Cruise
    Leaving from Boondall Entertainment Centre train station car park and arriving at the Abbey Museum (traveling via Pumicestone Rd) and arriving at approx 10am.
    Meeting at Boondall from 8am and leaving at 9am, this cruise is an 80kph (max) cruise up the highway to the Pumicestone Passage turn-off and then rolling in to the event as a convoy.
    Please have your entrance fee for the show ready to collect at Boondall to get your stickers and packs so you can be quickly directed to your place in the show.

    Some of them bug-gered (see what I did there?) off early, but here are the ones I was able to arrange the photo session with. I will be loading all of these to the BLBVW site later this week. 30710144_995304753962072_625191978336851752_n.jpg 30726776_995304680628746_5342710456877514243_n.jpg 30739695_995304770628737_1864546220633182509_n.jpg 30742038_995304310628783_2326947214853455876_n.jpg 30743515_995304630628751_5475425735858383152_n.jpg t3s_at_Dubs_2018_05.jpg

    Organisers I'm sure will be in contact as they need to surface and take a breath after organising and packing up for a regroup.
    As plenty of trophy winners had gone it's a case of working their way through the completed forms and maybe deciphering some handwriting to make contact ...... postage will also take some time if they can't find someone to drop it in to you ..... happens every year o_O
