    Excellent. Yes Dave, we are going :) I will contact the organisers on Monday & confirm we will be there with a few buses. I think this will be the start of a big annual event down here. I was encouraging them to advertise next years as a Kombi get togerher as well. They were very receptive of the idea. Anyway, I will post exact meeting & leaving details tomorrow.

    Great job everyone :)

    Hi All,
    OK, lets lock in a departure location & Time. Cenotaph at 9am. Not too early & we will be there (Kempton) before the events start & there should be some good pickings left at the garage sales aswell.


    See you there.

    Hi Guys haven't responded as yet for two reasons:

    1. Didn't know if we would have Big Ted back or not

    2. Wasn't sure if we had to work or not.

    Turns out that 1. we have got Big Ted back Tony came home in him on Monday but 2. We are working.

    Sometimes the planets just don't align. Hope you all have a great day and a safe Convoy!

    I may have to put off install of Big bore kit though. Next time.
    Cheers, J

    Hi All,
    Well I spoke to the head honcho in charge of the cars (Hadn't been able to get hold of him before then) & would say at best, I got a lukewarm reception. :(
    Seems he is of the opinion, a crappy old HR Holden has more right to a position on the oval that a Kombi. I was told we could park our buses up the back behind the oval, not on the oval. As the Holden car club MIGHT be coming. I asked what the ground was like up there & he said "I don't know". When asked about the Festival Parade, I was told only 2 buses could go in the parade, as he wouldn't want anymore than that in it (Kombis that is).
    I did point out to him that the people I had spoken to previuosly had been very receptive of the idea & that each bus would be likely to bring up to 5 people. So there would be a big boost in numbers. He didn't seem to see the benefits....

    To be honest, I am very disappointed with the reception I got. After the other people being so positive, this guy was at best tolerant.

    Bearing this in mind, I am calling it off (The Run to Kempton) & will endevour to get something else up & running ASAP. I apologise for this, but there is no way I am interested in making the effort to boost an event lik that, when we are going to be given the arse end of a dirty cark park, when all others are allowed to park on the oval.

    I will PM each of the people who have expressed interest & link to this.

    Maybe we could still do something? A run down to Huon or the Channel? Any fast ideas??

    Rob J.........a very angry Rob J

    How about the Campbell Town Show on the 31st May and 1st of June. This is a great little show (They have a Smithfield dog show and I used to enter our Smithie).

    Nice bit of lead in time to clear the calendar, and closer to NW for our coastal comrades.

    I'd be happy to help with the organising.

    Cheers,

    Paul
