    Great thanks for that. I’ve got three. Half a dozen would be a good number so we’re not looking like lone wolves.

    Got there at 9.20 only to be told entry had to be before 9am even tho' the ticket said 7am till 10am:confused:. In my most polite manner I asked if anything could be done. We were then walked slowly thru the people to you guys. Here I am Chris on the other end to you;). IMG_0804.jpg2.jpg
    And Fen enjoyed the day when she got used to all the people:) & Lauren enjoyed the day because I did:D.
    Cheers

    We were following davidh an missed the turnoff to the entry. After getting back ontrack when arriving at the gate entry was told we were too late to enter. Time was about 8.45am.. oh well, 3 less vw splitties would of been on the lineup.
    Maybe next year

    That really sucks! I’ll be sure to fill in the people concerned on their error. I think you mean 9:45 am but either way it was earlier than the 10 am advertised.
    It was a bit of a teething exercise for the organisers. But it surprises me they turned you away and I didn’t realise that happened until now. I wish I had of known I’d have escalated it straight away.

    All things just a learning experience Mr Beckstar;) & 77/kombi/surfer just is who he is (nice knowledgeable VW fellow) & has that VW ethos of not being 'pushy'. Had a long chat with him today & he was comfortable with what went down but I'm disappointed for the effort he went to;). But 'really' why would they 'turn away' display kombis???
    He followed me in at 9.20 but exited stage left to Coral St:oops:. May have been as confused as I was about where to go?
    Could have given him my other booking;).
    My.... this event is hugher (yeah.. that's a word;)) than anything I've been to before. Makes Old Bar look like a family picnic:):oops:. Must have been over 500 fancy cars entered. Rat rods, T buckets etc etc
    Great day out & eye candy for anyone with age under their belt:cool:.
    Cheers
