    An indication of the weather. Soon Old Bar will be known as the place where it never rains on the long weekend...

    Our third year in a row. What a fantastic weekend.
    People, Kombis, weather, campground, people, parade, display, fun, market and people.
    Thanks very much to the organisers.

    Hi all
    just wanted to say thanks to all the kombi guys that stoped to make sure i was ok when i broke down on the way home 20ks north of karuah, had to wait 2 hrs for the tow truck it felt like about 50 degrees thankfully had plenty of water.the motor sounds pretty terminal,lots of rattles and cluncking noises,still a great weekend and so happy to be part of the kombi community more than 10 people stopped to check on me,on a side note there was no sticker in my bag and i would dearly like one as i have one from the last 5 years if any one has a spare i would really appreciate it and happy to pay postage once again thanks kombi people

    Another brilliant Old Bar festival…….perfect weather, nice waves, good supping companions & plenty of VW talk.
    Met some great new, (to me), folk, re-kindled old friendships & re-charged my personal batteries for the rest of the year.
    Thanks to all involved & congrats. to our trophy winners.
    Already booked & planning next year's run…….

    Great weekend, "as oldman said some nice waves, top weather", met some really nice people and had a great time.

    Already booked for next year, same site and an extra day to enjoy more surf.

    Thanks to all involved.

    Had a great time at Old Bar - great people, great kombis, great weather! Thank you to all involved in organising it. Miss D handled the trip beautifully - which I'm very thankful for. I think that's the first time on a trip I haven't had to visit a mechanic somewhere along the way. :0)

    Rumour has it someone turned up late on the sat arvo. Scored a great site at the van park. Went on the cruise and then disappeared early next morning.....

    I plead guilty your honour.

    However, I blame Oldman for subjecting me to far too much peer pressure that I couldn't cope with.

    Doing the whole weekend next year sounds like a good idea.
