    Bus Stop HQ location Site 411 Grevillea Grove, being myself & Phil.
    Well folks not long now, have most things sorted enough to pop this Itinerary up, you will all also get a copy when you arrive with any updates that may happen
    Morning coffee available from Cafe 53 :) outside camp kitchen @ 7am
    Friday 14/4/17
    6pm Meet & Greet BBQ
    Camp Kitchen

    This year our bbq will be supporting Variety the Children's Charity
    All monies raised goes to Variety to support Alison Sellers HQ1 entry for the 2017 Variety Bash. HQ1 will be there too & they are more than happy to chat to anyone about what they do. (Might even get a Kombi bash car interested?) Alison will also be running a raffle of a huge beautiful Kombi painting, donated by Phil 73 Kombi
    The Variety Bash helps out small country schools with resources needed to support their students.

    Saturday 15/4/17
    8.30am Photo shoot & Komvoy

    Sorry for the early start folks, the possibility of rain over the Easter weekend or even before is quite likely & it has been a hair pulling experience trying to find a hard surface for 80+ Kombi's. (Check Phil's hair :eek: ) We have also decided to use the same venue for fine weather :)
    Thankfully Belmont 16fters has come to the party & is allowing us to use their car-park & we need to be in there before the Club starts trading for the day.
    Scissor lift is now not happening, my son had to do the physical pick up of hire (he will be in Bali so no can do) One of our fantastic members Wayne & Rose, aka Otto has organised us a Cherry Picker instead with the proper harnesses etc, again fingers crossed it won't be needed ;)
    We have decided to go ahead with cherry picker if windy drone cant go up & members will also have the opportunity to go up & take own pics. No high vantage point available Rose & Wayne are champs!
    Alternatively, if the weather plays ball we will be able to use the drone, which is being supplied by a professional, Dan Hulkstar
    Komvoy
    Everyone will be supplied with a map showing the route, we will be stopping along the way at Belmont 16fters for photo shoot, then continuing on beside the lake, we will drive through Warners Bay along to the Speers Point Round-a-bout & come back (great photo op of fellow Kombians :p ) to Warners Bay where parking has been arranged across from the pub.
    Warners Bay Hotel has a variety of boutique beers on tap & good food, alternatively there are plenty of coffee shops or takeaways if you'd like to enjoy lunch on the foreshore

    Dinner

    6pm Swansea Workers Club
    Theme: Oceanic, on or of the Sea

    The club is 2 blocks from the Caravan Park & is an easy walk, alternatively the club will ferry folks from the Park, starting at 4.30pm.
    This year we will have additional entertainment, other than our own :rolleyes: starting at 7pm.

    Club will also take back to the park any weary revelers.
    Sunday
    9am Easter Egg Hunt, children to meet at the Camp Kitchen

    I would have liked to be able to give the Easter Bunny more of a sleep in but as we are in a large tourist park we will have limited time.
    Big thanks to Linda Hawkins for again putting her hand up, all folks are asked to bring Easter Eggs & leave with Linda in 404 Casuarina Street :D
    2pm Kombi Toy Races, Basketball Court
    Hope you've all got your entries ready for this highly contested race! See Alpals thread for details
    6pm Casual Pizza night, Camp Kitchen

    An opportunity for a last get together, we will also be celebrating a special birthday for one of our members (wants to remain anonymous until the day :oops: )
    Pizza's will be supplied by Big Mama's Place at Blacksmiths. https://www.bigmammaspizza.com.au
    There will be menu's available Traditional Pizza's $18 & Gourmet Pizza's $20
    Please bring cash with you, I will record name, order & take monies & ring the order in.
    Steve was very helpful & is delivering for us even though they don't provide the service normally also, he is not charging us public holiday surcharge :D happy days
    Looking forward to seeing you all & celebrating this great time of the year!
    Roll on Bus Stop Swansea! cheers :D

    Aww there will only be one early start mate. If the weather plays ball & if fine (that includes leading up to Easter) we can leave a bit later o_O as we wont be on a time limit, final decision Friday will confirm at meet & greet. Best I could do for so many of us. Cheers :D
