    Hi All.
    OK, it is about time the Tassie crew pulled thier fingers out & had a get together. No If's, But's, maybe's or Probably's. Lets just do it. I need some FIRM numbers of who can come along & I will organise a big space on the oval for the day. This used to be a great day when I had my Holdens & can only imagine it being even better with a crew of kombis. I will endevour to bring 3 of mine & already have another 2 x Splits who are keen to do the day, so that is 5 already. Lets fill this oval up & let the car clubs know that the Kombi's are in town.

    Kempton festival is a full on Country festival. They have garage sales all along the main drag & shops & stalls open everywhere. There are "Tug of wars", farm guy comps where they throw things with pitchforks (Not sure wtf that is called, but looked interesting), model displays etc.

    Please add your names below if you are really keen. I will be paying out on those who say they will come & then pike out with some soft excuse..lol.

    Lets do this Tassie Crew..

    Rob,

    I still have Doris - FC ute, modified blue/grey, still not back on the road. If I'm in Tassie I'll try and be there with Ruby.

    Awesome!
    Please excuse my feeble mind, but you are Graham, yes? Man, been too long since we caught up? I didn't realise it was you with Ruby!! I do suddenly have a vague recollection you PM'd me telling me who you were, but I am not sure if it is my extremely vivid imagination...lol
    You just gotta get that FC back on the road. That is one sweeeeet ride.

    Would love to catch up again & talk about cars again :) Give me a PM at some stage & we can hook up down at my shed. I have beers there every thursday night. All welcome.

    Regards,
    Rob J

    I'll give it some thought then. Very tempting.

    Yes Rob, that's me. I'll PM you and get location of your shed. Would love to come and have a yarn. Should be back in Hobart early next week - in Japan at the moment. Bloody chilly!

    Ruby has to go in for some minor surgary on the 20th, she should be a little better in the steering department, thereafter, and hopefully she will be fit and well for the 24th sojourn to Kempton.

    Hi All,
    Well, not the response I had hoped for, but we have 2 definates & 3 maybes. I have been in contact with the festival organisation & they would be very happy to see us arrive. I suggested making this an annual event. i.e. "The Kempton Kombi Konnection" & mentioned that given enough notice, we would have more chance to increase the numbers for next year. They were stoked.

    OK, so what I am asking, is some sort of firm commitment, that you WILL be there, so I can reserve the spaces on the oval. I would hate to be blowing the trumpet about the Kombi Club, only to have 6 buses show up....3 of them being mine...

    This is the chance to start something big in the Tassie Kombi scene, so get involved & be part of it. I will give it to Friday to get some firm numbers, or drop the plans.

    Get involved, sign up now :)

    Rob
