OK. The BELLETT Nationals (to use its original and correct name) is on this weekend in NSW. It's been all over NSW in the past, as well as Adelaide, Qld and Tasmania, but it's never been local to Melbourne. Seeing as it all started as an idea with Melbourne based members (Steve and myself), I think it's about time we had it here.
That raises a question tho.... will local BCCV members and Bellett people alike support it because let's be honest, Melbourne based people haven't supported it in the past so am I wasting my time putting this together or will people actually attend and realise what they've been missing out on for the best part of 15 years?
Over to you.

Hi Brett
I was wondering about the next Nats.

Melbourne or Vic does sound like a good likely location since it's not been down this way. Corowa and Albury are about as close as we have had it as you know.
Downside for some maybe the extra distance. I guess we wait and see what the overall consensus maybe.

2020 is already set Glenn. Has been since last year.
Is in Adelaide. Again.... and that's my point.
They always get a really good local turn up because it's in their back yard so I'm testing the waters to see if the same will happen here.
Extra distance just is what it is. Qld had it 1.5 hours from Brisbane, Adelaide is in Adelaide itself, Sydney has had it within a couple of hours of the city a few times, so I reckon it's well due for our turn to have it close to home.
That all being said tho, if there's little or no support (both here and on the club FB page) then I will not be wasting my already limited time on something that those who should be all for it simply won't make the effort to support... And I fear that may be the case as we've seen for too long.

Be fine with me as i go to Melbourne at least once a year.
Or Even close to Melbourne like Ballarat or Bendigo.
I would have been at this years but everything kinda fell on me all at once.....including me.

You have to think of distance to organise it because you have to make multiple visits to get things in place. Both Ballarat and Bendigo are too far for me to do that. Also knowing the area beforehand is a big help, and I don't know either of them well enough.
But Phillip Island on the other hand....

Never been to Philip Island so would be interesting and if you know the area for cruises and food etc cant see why it couldnt be there.
