    I can come but it will depend on the weekend. Going to be on call for most of June and part of July so options are limited.

    I don't drink beer either so I am not bothered about the pub - just want to meet up with other kombis and their owners :)
    Please convince him guys.

    how about have a quiet chat with him re any licensing issues or other problems .
    offer to organise some of the kombi side of things if necessary.
    probably more constructive than the drivel that normally eventuates if organised on FB

    As some one who has been in the industry I can see that if he has a big gig on for the w/e with the fest then it may be a case of 'too many things' and concerns re catering ,licensing etc
    face to face chat is always worthwhile for evaluating and sorting pitfalls before everyone goes off half cocked and without understanding the practicalities.
    Sounds like a great event if it comes off but there's always someone who has to do a heap of organising to ensure things go smoothly when numbers are concerned.
    cheers

    col ive already had a small chat with him already. the trip is to show him he has support for the event , offer any help and to come up with solutions to any problems he might have. hes already offered us a free desert if we buy a meal there. hoping to get there this weekend to have a face to face chat .

    Hey all, we are newies to the forum. Have noticed you guys are keen for a meet up / ride, we would LOVE to support and be involved in these events. We would also just like to give a heads up about a 'Kombi Convoy' we are currently in the process of organising for the end of November. It will be a 'Kruise for Cancer' as a fund-raising effort for the Cancer Council, we are wanting to make it huge! We are owners/operators of Kombi Krew (An entertainment/DJ and Silent Disco service, BEST FUN EVER) and also Kombi Promotions, we do a lot of events, weddings, birthdays etc as well as a lot of Charity involvement. Check us out on Facebook for more info. We would also love to support the Oktoberfest proposal... sounds incredible, I'm also willing to offer my services as a beer wench! haha. I suppose we should also introduce 'Penny' from our pic. 1960 Splitty <3 she's a real gem.

    They are going up to Orford on Saturday (June 4). Details on the kombi club face book page. Look for Martin Bevan.
