Find me the screen to watch the F1 Kai, and I'll be there!
Hey guys, I'm bringing buttercup down to Newcastle for Greta ( I've just put a new top end)
I'm coming down on Wednesday for wedding duties on Saturday.
I was thinking of coming for a look around on Sunday.
How far from Newie is it?
According to google maps, Newcastle to Old Bar is 1 hour 56 mins, being 176kms......
It's about 2 hours north of Newcastle. There will be a few heading up just for the day - maybe you could travel with them?
Count Lauren & myself in for that Grantus. Should it be booked?
I think we'll just turn up, some or many....... although we should set a time for the shuttle bus from Meridian to the club, so we all travel together.
Enjoy the weekend.
Thanks Les.....be hard not to enjoy the Kombifest.
Pity you got a "better" offer, and can't be there too.....
Sitting outside my van with the flatscreen set up, I even invested in a new aerial and it works a treat, bring a chair brother.
You know we all will Les !
Shame we'll miss you.....
@milly Moe's coming up again this year so we might be huddled around your screen with bintangs in hand!
For those bringing pooches, please get them up to date with tick medication as ticks are everywhere around that place.
I remember Jackie got one in her head last year.
Ive heard scabies medication is good for getting rid of them - thanks for the tip Ken!
All going well, I will head down for my first Old Bar! Hope to catch up with a few KC members while there
Already put the shuttle bus to good use last night Grantus
It wasn't a better offer- although free beer and food and tip the scales and it is our 43rd wedding anniversary so I am going along with the bride to stay safe. (this also means that I can get a new jib and go sailing next week)
I was looking forward to it too but as Ned said "Such is life" the downside is that the cumquats are finished but there is a, upside too there are a squillion lettuce in the garden.
Enjoy the weekend and I will catch up with you all in the future.
We'll get there soon. Kombi's willing.
Arrive tomorrow yeew
Also be aware that the bait fish balls moving along our beaches are attracting sharks and Saltwater isn't far from 9 mile beach, over the years I have fished these beaches and the bait fish in the waves with the tailor chopping them to pieces, the gulls frantically grabbing them and the sharks cleaning up among them makes for very dangerous surfing. Stay safe and enjoy. Cheers Les
All packed up & ready to roll in the morning
