    Lovely day at Fairfield today. I am hoping someone took some good photos and also give us some results. @Wayne murray , your dual cab was stunning - looks just like a new one!! Nice to catch up with lots of friends and hang out for the day, good to meet Andrew (the other half of @Andrew & Elizabeth ) Craig got there with Elsie, Grant did a KCExpress from Royce in Goulburn, Kai keeping the JustKampers flag flying, Syncro selling stuff, Luckyphil selling stuff, a T3 group effort finding a wanted part for @Longrasser, caught up with Nathan @Dubman , chatting with @Syncro27 and Pat - missed you Chuck!

    We did well this year and great to catch up with all the usual suspects - except Chucky of-course.

    Unless @Wayne murray also scored the “People’s choice” award, coz it got my vote, as I had to leave to drive home before that one was announced? :rolleyes:

    No I didn't get people choice, I wasn't really paying attention at the end as they mucked up the people choice announcements but I thought I saw that you may have got another in the Brian Walker award.

    Thanks everyone, @melissa hoping you like the colours;) thought you might like.
    Congraulations Grantus and Syncro27 also for there wins

    There is at least one good knee bender there. Thanks for the photographs. I would have been there but work commitments (or rather Lynne's work commitments) saw me heading out to the airport and back.

    Well done Team KC !
    No surprise to me.....immaculate buses owned by fanatical addicts ;)
    Prior commitments prevented me coming along.
    Cheers,
    Mark

    You were missed, along with your brilliant pic contributions. :(

    Anybody else take any pics to add? :rolleyes:

    I was going to pop over at the end (once I knew what you looked like!!) but just missed you, congrats on the win :D
    I did have a quick chat to Wayne's parents, after I accidentally assumed Wayne's Dad was him, whoops!

    A bit tricky with a bunch of faces I don't know, but I look forward to meeting you all next time :)

    Were you still there at the formal procedings? Double bummer!

    You should have flashed over & tripped me up, to say “hello” when you had the chance! :D

    I left the same time as Scott, at 3.15pm, as I had another 350km haul south to get back, after leaving home at 4.30am.... so I was trying to avoid making a long day, even longer. o_O

    Yep! Was curious to see who the winners would be, I haven't managed to make it to any VW events before, only ever usually see them in photos

    We walked past your T3 a couple times but don't think you were there, we headed over at the end once I figured out who you were but you were driving away :oops: My bad, I did consider just walking up to random groups of people and asking for Grantus but didn't want to look like too much of a fool ;)

    That's a bloody long day, nice to have another trophy for all your efforts though I'm sure

    I was probably away from my vehicle, making the effort to take some pics to post, as it doesn’t seem like anyone else bothered.....o_O

    It is always difficult to try and put “names to faces” at events, but had you tripped me over, it would have made a lasting first impression, of meeting up! :D

    Hope you enjoyed the day. :)

    Had a great day at the Nationals, was a big couple of days, got home around 10pm, got to meet a few new people which was good, also got to see Wayne’s new beast in the flesh and must say that it’s even better than his photos in the build thread, congratulations to all the winners, I put a fair bit of time into my cars but that is nothing compared to those guys, respect, I also managed to meet one of the guys from theSouth Coast Dubbers, rudely I had to leave before the presentation as I had to take Katherine to the airport as she linked in a trip to Queensland to visit her daughter and the grand kids, once I dropped her off at the airport I then was able to hook up with said Dubber after Heathcote Road and travel back to Batemans Bay together, at Nowra we found another Dubber from the Bay so the convoy was three, man those guys set a decent pace through rain and fog, happy to say that I’m home in one piece, the bus ran like a train all the way, I have a bit of fine tuning to do on the carburettor’s but overall we are extremely happy to have the old girl back on the road, see you all at the Spectacular, cheers Greg
