Melbourne get together January 2016
« on: 08 December 2015, 11:20 PM »
Christmas is always a mad time, how about when things quieten down in January we have a W116 get together?  In the format of previous events?  A morning coffee somewhere.  Lets pick a date and hopefully a few will show.

Any takers?

   I would go if I didnt live in Wisconsin you Aussies have such a tight knit group. How great is that. Ive seen on other sites people trying to get a get together but no luck. In a big place like the USA you would think you could get a few vintage MB owners together for a few beers and conversation. I envy you guys have a good time and Ill have have one with you. Lee

Bingo!  Mark, you have any time off in January?  I'm flexible but I know you have to plan ahead.  Oh, forgot about the move too.

OK, let us get off to an early start for 2016.

Sunday January 3, 2016

A nice drive out of Melbourne:

http://www.glass4classics.com.au/event/drysdale-autopro-classic-car-show-2016/

I propose an early morning meeting in Melbourne for a coffee but we will need to be on the road at 8:30am at the LATEST.

We can meet up with Robertd at the show.

Thanks Carl,

This is a great venue with plenty of parking under shady trees,
I went 2 years ago and it had a great variety of different makes and motorbikes.
I will dust off the Gold 6.9 for the day.

cheers
