Update, is there anyone that could bring Nathan back to Melbourne from Robert's Saturday afternoon/evening?  I have an engagement in Geelong I'd forgotten about that evening.

It's on Saturday right?

It's in the brain that it's on Sunday for some reason.

I can bring Nathan back - provided I make it of course.

Do we need to bring any edibles, etc?
Boogity, Boogity, Boogity, Amen!

Definitely Saturday and you don't need to bring any food.

Ok, that's great if someone could bring Nathan back to Melbourne.  Yep, Saturday, I'll be at the cafe from 11:30am.

UPDATE!!!!!

Sadly, it looks like Nathan cannot make it tomorrow.  His airport meeting will be going longer than expected.  On the off chance he can leave early, he will call us at mid day.  So, how about we try to get to Robert's a little earlier?

I'll be at the cafe from 11:30am.  I propose we depart at 12:30pm sharp for Roberts as opposed to the original plan of 1:00pm, does that work? 

I think it's too late to change the coffee venue, it was decided to be there because of Nathan, (let's just blame him, not the fact it's close to the factory!).  However, if there is a consensus and everyone agrees tonight, we can meet closer to town, over to you, otherwise we keep it at Coburg.

I just spoke to Robertd and he is looking forward to receiving us!

Perhaps we can have a show of hands to give Robert an idea of who's attending?


Coffee meeting in Coburg from 11:30am:

Koan
Powerglide
John


Robert's lunch:

Well that's disappointing Nathan can't make it but let's hope his meeting is cut short & he surprises us all!
I'll b there in Coburg hopefully with my mate George (who's a member of MBCV) & we'll probably both end up at Rob's (hope that's ok Rob?)...  :)

Just like to say thanks to Robertd for putting on an excellent afternoon, not to mention his culinary prowess with the BBQ and fresh veggies!  Thanks Rob :)

The sight that greeted us was amusing as we trundled down Rob's driveway, I'll let the pictures do the talking...

I took the W126 down (Sorry) due to the rainy morning start.  We met at the cafe in Melbourne and PG showed up with his lovely 280 SE.  From the cafe, myself, Oversize and Koan headed to Robertd's ranch.  Sadly, Nathan was stuck in his meeting and PG had a prior commitment with a birthday party so it was just the three of us at Rob's.  We missed you John, all OK?

It is amusing to consider there were 10 X 6.9s owned by just three of the attendees.  I think this is cornering the market.  I took a bundle of pics, I'll upload them later.

Happy days.
