    Whoo Hoo, just got the call, we have parking and camping for Saturday night.:)

    The renovations to the Rainbow Power Company have been held up and they have just contacted Alan to offer us their site again. They were very disappointed when they were not going to be able to let us have it so All is good. Please pass the word around.

    excellent.:D
    everyone make sure you give good donation as now you know how much other less spots cost.[obviously doesn't have to match :)]
    goes to local charity not rainbow. usualy we throw in $10 pp
    ensure the place is clean when we leave as it helps with continued access

    Booking not necessary Anne-Marie

    That's fantastic Anne-Marie. No booking required, it's not an actual camp ground they just let us use their parking area and grassed area to camp. No shower but toilet and metal wash bowls and hot water on site. If you look at the map below you can see where it is and what a magic location ( top left next to the Bowlo).

    Hi there, due to other commitments will be too late to meet at lismore...
    Is it possible to meet just out of nimbin? If so what road or street could i possibly join the konvoy?
    Thanks.

    The corner of Stony Chute Rd and Nimbin Rd, Lismore side or in the Nimbin Rocks Viewing area just a bit back towards Lismore if the Police have their bus set up on the corner.

    We usually regroup at Stony Chute corner before heading into Nimbin but get confirmation if the corner is free on the day. The Police are usually packed up before our arrival.:)

    looks like a fair bit of rain on the fri so might pay to stay on the sealed car park at rainbow. gets soft on the front lawn.

    Please spare a thought for our KC member Jules (Kombigal) who is currently in hospital and will miss the Kombi Konvoy. Jules and her wonderful colourful Kombi Gav have been a part of just about every Konvoy and will be sadly missed.
    She will however be with me in spirit, sitting on my dash. Jules is the ultimate 'Rainbow Girl' and sports a tutu on many an occasion.
