    Many people have thanked me personally over the last few days and I appreciate it very much.
    I want to make sure that many others are thanked also.

    Firstly, to the Gold Coast Bus Stop Management Team, which includes Paul & Lynn, Lorraine & Andy and Dale & myself. To Judy for the loan of her Bus Movie and being our media magnet. To Alan and John for coordinating and running the Toy Kombi races again this year - loads of fun.
    To Michelle for being Official Photographer.

    Secondly to the Forum Management Team, which includes Roy (our sponsor), Melissa (Administrator) and all the Moderators whose work ensures that we are able to run this Club.

    Thirdly to all the people who travelled from near and far to be here for this weekend and locals who dropped in to see what all the fuss was about.

    Fourthly, thanks to a certain Burleigh Heads business, various sore heads and broken vehicles that reduced the Kombi Cruise to a manageable size on Sunday. With larger numbers we probably would not have returned until it was well and truly dark.

    Fifthly, thanks to the Gold Coast Holiday Park who worked very hard to make our stay enjoyable. It is not possible to complain about the venue and facilities, that’s for sure.

    Lastly, thank you to all the sponsors and those who came along to Run to the Sun in 2011. Funds generated there bought a function room, pizzas, bus hire, trophies, prizes and a fabulous band (even if they are my friends).

    If I forgot anyone please accept my apologies.

    Ok now I know that works.
    We had a great time catching up with friends from past events and also meeting a lot of new kombi nuts. Thanks to every body that put this event on and thanks for the fun and lasting memories.
    Here are a few more pics and more to come later. image.jpg image.jpg

    Ditto Dougs post.
    thanks to all involved in organising. I was concerned initialy that a more bush venue might be better but It is a great park and the owners/managers and staff certainly were a pleasant bunch and helpful with a smile. Gets my tick of approval.

    Apologies to those who i wanted to catch up with and didnt say goodbye to in the rush to make the airport on monday.

    Great to reaquaint and aquaint with new folks and of course finaly meet a few who i have spoken or corresponded with over a year or so but till now had not met.
    Never dissapointed.
    cheers guys and safe travels

    Hi guys,
    sorry I wasn't more involved in all activities.

    Looking forward to many more.
    Thanks for making me feel welcome.

    To all concerned Doug & Dale, Cornish & Lynn, Andy & Lorraine, Melissa, Roy & Anita on
    putting this together for us....words can't say thank you enough...
    I for one do know what went in to putting this on for everyone & personally want to thank each & everyone of ou for what part you played....

    I can take the heat about being the "Media Magnet"... It's all about shining a beautiful light on the The Kombi Club & making people aware what a great club it really is....the power of the press is great promotion for us.
    And after today's newspapers I think everyone in the whole of Qld knows we are around...hehehe :)

    The Holiday Park were wonderful & couldn't be more accommodating ...one of the best parks I've ever stayed in...
    Again thank you to all who made the effort to come, it was soooo great to see you all there, my ribs are still hurting from laughing so much....
    To those still travelling home...safe travels...
    See you next year :)

    By the way I will be posting up slowly over the next few days all the pics I took...& there were many!

    We have just got home - on the back of a tow truck - but hey, what's a Bus Stop without the odd breakdown?

    My heartfelt thanks go out to the organising team for pulling it all together. It was so nice to have the pressure taken off for a change, and actually sit back and enjoy the whole weekend from a different angle. Most of you would know next year's Bus Stop will be in Griffith - Peter has put his hand up and has the organisation all planned out.

    I love catching up with all of the Bus Stoppers - I apologise if I did not meet everyone. There is just not enough time - I can see why someone asked for next time to be a week long.

    Oh yes, as an aside,
    is there any chance of purchasing a bus stop sticker?
    I would like to start my own collection of them over the coming years.
    cheers,

    I can't believe it's been seven years of bus stops. I didn't realise it had been that long of making sure I get to hang out with amazing people with great tastes in cars and company. I feel honoured that I can now call you all my friends. See you all next year in Griffith. xxoo

    Knowing how much planning goes into these, I would also like to thank everyone form the organising committee to the folks who turned out.
    An excellent venue,, no doubt they will see us again
    Thanks for the award, although I don't know what it was for, but I will accept it on behalf of everyone involved, past and present
    Though I didn't stay on site, It was great to see some new faces and some from the very first 'Bus Stop'. So untill the next time safe travels
