    I wish I had of met a few more of the KC Crew only had a chance to meet a small handful... Next time I may need to just jump in the middle of the crowd and introduce myself, tend to get a bit awkward when not knowing anyone in a large group. next time Ill bring some 'cojenes':eek:

    Well if you saw Jays bus Kai, you must have seen that sensational Orange bus sitting along side.
    Had a good day, driving in convoys, met some members and a sack full of Gurus.
    I even noticed my melon in one of the Dubman68 photos, drooling over the Redhotchilliwilli.
    Cya at a meeting soon, Steve

    PS. I really admire the members that braved the shocking weather conditions to make it to this event, well done.

    Yes, mammoth effort by Lorraine and Andy to get to this event. Thank you Jay and Janine for letting us have dinner at your house the night before,it was fantastic.

    Now for the few who have not already seen these _

    I picked up 2 sets of wheels today -
    a set of Mk3 Golf wheels to go on the Mk1 while I get the originals sandblasted and powdercoated...

    Hey Kai, was wondering who that was as I only had a second to turn around before pulling out - shame we didn't actually get to catch up inside there

    Had a great day - the cruise down went well, even after being 'elected' to lead it down :eek: - some fantastic rides out there - people spending big dollars and coming up with some really nice buses

    Congrats to Scott for taking out Best T4 - the other awards went to non-Kombi Club people unfortunately

    Drive home was a lonely cruise but made it before the rain really started again

    Most of my pics look like the others on here, but here are some of Steve (?) and Ian's 'new' tyres - Lorraine got some too on Monty but didn't get a chance to take a pic

    Wow what a full on few days, still got tomorrow ahead of us and hopefully we will get home by tomorrow night as I have to work Tuesday. We are currently in a boutique hotel in Singleton as the Pacific Hwy still closed in several places so it the long, long way home for us. But it has been all worth it :D

    A huge Thankyou to Melissa and Scott for putting us up last night and to Jay and Neen for hosting a lovely dinner party for us and our fellow KC friends :heart:

    It was a so nice to see our friends again and get a chance to meet even more of our Southern KC members.:heart:

    Mav and Miss leah......i am so disappointed that we didn't catch up :( , guess you will just have to come to Klubfest now so we can meet.


    I'll post some pics when I finally get home.

    Thanks EVERYONE for a fantastic weekend.

    Is that Scott's old bus? (KOM123).

    Sorry I didn't get there everyone. I really wanted to go, partly to see the show, partly to maybe find some parts but mostly to meet some other KC members, especially those of you who travelled so far. However, I diplomatically decided that it would be best to stay down at our van at Wisemans Ferry, waterskiing etc. - quality time with the family and family friends we have thre. This was a last minute decision on Thursday night/Friday and I went with the majority vote (my wife gets two votes!). I was hoping to still get there this morning but I could not get away from the river until nearly midday, so thought it would be too late.

    Looks like there was some nice buses there, as usual. Hope you all had a good time and hope I catch up with you some time.

    I was there, hobbling around on my old walking stick. Caught up with some old mates from the vw scene and had a bit of a chin wag. Had a great day.

    great pics & looked like a great day but when i read about yelling out bimbos i thought that
    was wrong, hope you apologised.
    girls hired by sponsors to promote but a quiet move please should have been all that's needed not a loud foul remark like that,i have a daughter that age & would be horrified if she was yelled at for doing a job.
