    This post has been removed by me.
    I just needed to calm down a bit.

    We are now staying at the White Albatross Park in Nambucca Heads and will no doubt see you all over the weekend.

    Hey Doug,
    Ambiance won't be the same, have stayed at both locations, we have cancelled and might just take a drive for the swap meet.
    Not saying anything will happen but on the one and only camp over at Macksville our Esky and a camp chair were stolen, never had an issue at Valla.

    I do hope for the future of this great event all does go well.

    The Chinese restaurant at macksville is excellent, in the main drag opposite the RSL.
    The Star hotel is pretty good also.

    Staying this week in Macksville (mother in-laws)
    Talking with a chap last night who is involved with the Macksville showground.
    He tells me the showground will be empty for the VW spectacular in July.
    The only campers allowed on site will be the campers who are there for the event.

    The reason the event was moved was due to a substantial fee increase at Valla for camping sites.

    Reading the entries on the FB page (below) - alot is being done to get this event under way.
    Security, & more showers and toilets
    There is a video clip on the FB page showing the site.
    Donna is doing alot to get this event up.

    I'm looking forward to Vw spectacular :) maybe the event can accomodate more now that it's moved location. It can't be easy running a show of this size, with so few shows in Australia I'm grateful to the organisers :). It's going to take a while to adjust from calling it Valla - see you there peeps

    For those heading to Valla/Macksville/Nambucca Heads, these guys are ready to great you at the beach, worth heading down to have a look.
    This was at Coffs Harbour on Saturday the 30 June, you can see Muttonbird Island and the breakwater in the background.
    A bit of deviation from the VW focus of the thread. Apologies.

    Looking at the program, I will be coming in from the north early Sat morning, am I better to meet the cruise as it gets to Nambucca?
    Would save having to drive to the show grounds just to go back to Nambucca.

    If this is a good option, where's the best place to be to meet up with the cruise?

    Thanks
