SA Christmas Thing??

Postby WheelieBin » Mon Oct 22, 2012 4:09 pm

So I saw the NSW event go up, do we want to do something, sometime December-ish?

I'm thinking maybe a cruise somewhere a little more decent than a bakery/pub for lunch, or an afternoon cruise somewhere decent for dinner?

Or alternatively, highly dependant on numbers (and who, some of you guys are a bit dodgy ;)), I'm still happy to have a BBQ at my place.

But we could do a ASN.Liberty one.

Oooh, I hadn't seen that - could be good. Still nice to do something for us though.

(Plus, although *I* try and behave ;) ... being something that Olds Mark is involved in organising, I'd expect a cop presence...)

That cop is quite nice. He has a well modded Rex himself.
Won't fine you for speeding etc but won't let you drive if your deflectable.

I'd be in it - how about a beach thing down at Sellick's or Moana where we can drive onto the beach? - a true Aussie Christmas.

Just a thought.

cheers,

I'm keen for catchups anywhere. Or SSSA catchups.

Hmmm... my car will probably go better on sand than I do (my crutches tend to sink... which makes things fun!) Do they have BBQ facilities or whatever?

I wouldn't drive onto the beach. Especially all the lowered guys. My stock gen4 got bogged driving out when I took it there. The sand onto/ off the beach is so soft and churned up.

I'm keen, ideally it wouldn't be on a Sunday but i understand that's normally the day everybody has free. Keen for anything, anywhere.

Fair play, probably safer that way. I'll just rock up unnaccounced if I happen to be able to make it :P

So, Karl and I were talking last night and thinking we should get this thing happening. We're happy just to make it a BBQ and catch up, which I'm happy to have at my place, pending numbers.

Are enough people interested that this is worth doing?

A end of year catch up sounds good. Although as much as it is a kind gesture to have it at your place Ben, might I suggest a park with supplied bbq's? That way the guests dont trash your place, everyone can byo food & drink and the rubbish gets sorted in the council supplied bins. It also lends itself to be able to kick a footy etc, if your at a park also. Plus if there is plenty of carparks, a group photo with cars etc can bode well.

Depending on location. i.e. by the beach, national park, or country reserve, you can search for local bbq's here http://meatinapark.appspot.com/

Putting these two together...is the invitation also to be extended to Michael?

Sorry, just being the prick that I am. And, sorry, Michael, we haven't even met and I'm giving you curry. :roll:

As to the actual get together, I wonder if, for a car group thing, the journey is as important as the destination (if not even more important) so would a morning cruise not go astray?

And I would agree with Shav - have it at a park and people can come and go as they please and you're not stuck with the mess or those who don't want to leave in a hurry.

cheers,
