    Alice and I are definitely going! We have been looking forward to this for a while...

    Not sure yet whether we will park in the carpark or bring Woger inside where we can hang out... we haven't bought our tickets yet, but prebooking seems a good idea.

    Note Changes

    Note Changes to the original idea for November.... The day of the VW looks like its a goer. It was good last year. That takes care of November. In December is the end of year bash. Then thats it for the year.

    Mmmm, perhaps we could also fit in a camping trip, or a visit to Westerfolds Park, before Xmas?

    Spewing - I had a great time here last year but this year I will be in Zambia that week. I guess I cant be too upset but I would have enjoyed the catch up and kombi fix!

    We met at Dandenong when we tripped to the Prom and we passed thru Cranbourn on the way.
    Is this the place to meet again?
    Plenty of space to get a convoy organised (and a loo close by!)

    "Stuck" is your word Rowan not mine :D
    Let's hope I dont end up "stuck" because that can be a bit tricky in that part of the planet.

    Hi Everyone, We're all coming to the VW day - wouldn't miss it! Is anyone going to the Dandenong Drive-In on Saturday 15th for a warm up?

    We're thinking about it. I've been going to the Dandenong drive-in quite a bit recently and really like it. If my brother's interested we might both drive our Kombis there. Otherwise, I might make an appearance by myself. Not sure yet, will let you know.

    Re meet for day of VW.
    Have not seen any resolution yet. We are away this week but hope to be home next Saturday so we will be heading to Cranbourne Sunday. Will check here for meet details so we can convoy in with the KC crew!
    See you then.

    16th november DOTVW

    16 nov
    VWCV Day of the Volkswagen 2008.

    Show 'n' Shine, Trade displays, Motorsport and Swap Meet.
    International guest; Bruce Meyers. Father of the Beach Buggy phenomena and founder of the Manx Buggy.
    • Venue: Cranbourne Racecource, Cranbourne.
    • Time: 8am for swap site entry, 9am general admission, show n shine entries close at 11am.
    • Cost: Show 'n' shine entry $20.00, walk-in admission $5.00.
    Ok guys lets get organized eh?
    Lets meet in Dandenong just past Stud road there is a side road at the park. Pull in there and we will head off in time to go inside DOTVW with our kombi's. So lets say be in Dandenong from 8:30 am to 9:00am? General admission (thats us) starts at 9:00am so by the time we get to Cranbourne racetrack it should be good timing. Dont forget to bring a chair and a hat, these came in handy last year.
    Its an early start for some sleepy heads but come on guys lets make the effort as it really is a fun day. See you in Dandenong from 0830 hrs!!!!
    Cammo.

    I'll be there, possibly with a slight hangover from the night before. Coffee is a must I think!

    Dandenong Meet-up

    Hi Cammo and Melbourne Team

    Dale & I are planning to join you for the day and would like to konvoy in to Cranbourne with you that morning. We QLD types need a more specific location however - we will be coming from Southbank after picking up Greg & Sara's Monty. I found Stud Road but which park are you meeting in? We were planning on travelling down the M1.

    its easy

    This is probably not the most direct but for interstaters its the simplest...
    If your heading out on the freeway etc, have at look at your map and look for Springvale road. This takes you all the way to Dandenong Road (Hwy 1) Turn left on Dandenong Rd and this will take you right into Dandenong. The last set of lights after the shops is Stud road. Be in the left lane. about 2 hundred metres or so you will see a service road pull into it. We will be there. There is a small park with a toilet there. [ UHF Chanel 18.]

    Not quite sure I know where that is. Is someone handy with those online maps?
