Hi guys,

Was just tooling around on the site; having a rare quiet moment given that the boy is asleep, the weather is raining outside and my wife seems to have not found where I am yet.

Was thinking we should nail down a date for another Isuzu cruise, perhaps in August to give plenty of lead time.

Perhaps we should hit up the Goolwa Motor Museum???

I reckon we could probably meet somewhere pretty central - maybe the city or something (I'm happy to backtrack) and then head up the freeway, get off at Mount Barker, then head to Goolwa via Strathalbyn.

The museum is open Wed to Saturday only, so we'd need to do the cruise on a Saturday.

Date to be determined...

What's everyone say? Rain, hail or shine? Well, maybe not hail.

Cheers,

Dave

Can't see Bella being ready for August.
Though a run in September would be good, that's when I expect to have her ready for testing (ie that she'll make the trip to the Nationals).

:lol: :D
Cheers
Rob

I'm keen, Dave. Sundays are better for me, but I might be able to swing a Saturday off for such an auspicious occasion...

Ok guys,

How's Saturday 18 August shaping up for people?

That seems like the best date at this stage; well, for me anyway. If NOBODY else can go, we'll have to look at changing it.

Paul H, does that give you enough notice to get someone to fill in at work?

Haven't organised a time yet, but given we're doing the Saturday thing, I'm still keen for the Goolwa Motor Museum.

Will do more research, but because I've just sat down to peruse the Forum, my wife suddenly needs to have a shower at THIS EXACT MOMENT and I have to look after the baby. She's great with the timing, trust me.

Cheers,

Dave

Much work will be done between now and then.

Cheers

Oh no!

Turns out both Ross and I have something on that day.

His daughter will be down from Alice Springs while my wife organised something because I forgot to tell her I had organised the bellett cruise!

Can we do the 25th instead?

People? Sorry for the hassles!

Hey Dave. I've managed to swap that weekend with my offsider, which ultimately means the 10 day shift will be a bit mixed up. So I'm good to go. 25th ok with everyone else ??

OK peeps, do we want to make this an early one?

I was wondering if people would like to meet up at 9:00am at:

Thalassa Park
Windebanks Road
Aberfoyle Park

There's a nice parking spot in there where we can congregate and needless to say, spend about 40 minutes there yakking, then we can head straight out of town to the Goolwa Motor Museum.

They open at 10:00am, so we'll have plenty of time.

We could spend a couple of hours at the museum then do lunch nearby afterwards if we're all keen??!?

If the time's a problem and we need shuffle this around a bit, let us know or forever hold your peace!!

Dang! Yeah Saturday for a change so we can hit that museum - they don't open Sundays, as I recall.

Cheers,

Dave

happy to have an early start but i reckon we will be sitting in cars chatting as this very winter weather will be with us for most of the weekend.
so bring along your winter parka's as the wind chill factor is making 9 degrees feel like 2.5 degrees

drive the car that has a working heater guys!!

yeah
