Title: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: oversize on 24 February 2017, 04:38 PM
Any suggestions re dates?  Anyone with unsuitable dates?  I figure if we set a date early, more people can plan to attend....

I haven't seen the Fox collection so that's possible.  I'm also thinking of a nice tour somewhere, but maybe I'm getting too adventurous?

Looks like the fox collection is closed Sunday's. Do you work Saturdays Robert? A drive might be fun but I may have to hitch a ride as I doubt they'll allow my w116 on the plane.

we can each bring a picnic Basket and have a mini Concourse display on the grounds

Here is a picture of someone who waited too long to attend a get together,

Post by: oversize on 12 April 2017, 03:45 AM
I don't finish work till 6pm that day so it won't work for me...  I'm planning it well in advance so I (and others) can plan/request to have the day off.
Title: Re: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: robertd on 12 April 2017, 04:11 AM
Ok I've blocked out June 25th

Why don't we make it interesting and meet up at say the "Pig and Whistle" at East Trentham,

New Irish Owners, is said to have  good food and Guinness on tap.

plenty of open space to park the cars and take some group pictures.

Finally finished moving (again) so I have a little more spare time on my hands!  Lets do this...
Title: Re: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: oversize on 09 June 2017, 06:38 PM
Looks like interest in a GTG has gone cold....  Or is that just the Melbourne weather???
Title: Re: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: robertd on 11 June 2017, 09:41 PM
Melbourne weather!

Still good to go on the 25th, happy to meet anywhere north or northwest of the big smoke.

Gisborne has a really good Rec reserve in the heart of town and good coffee shops

Anyone home?
Title: Re: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: oversize on 21 June 2017, 02:28 AM
Looks like I can't make the 25th, but I can do the weekend after (1st or 2nd July) if that's suits others (or just you Rob)??  I'm happy to meet at the pizza place in Sunbury if you like?  I might even be able to drag along a mate with a Benz...

BTW where's Carl gone?
Title: Re: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: robertd on 21 June 2017, 05:28 AM
Hi Mark,

Well had the 25th locked in, so looks like I will be doing a solo run?

the following week the good wife has us booked for a bit of northern exposure (Port Douglas) for as few weeks.

Try again another time.

cheers

Hello Mark!

I'm around, but admit I logged in today after some months out of action.  I'm always up for a GTG!  I've been swamped this year, sadly for the wrong reasons, dealing with Mum and Dad's estate which has been work in progress for the last 18 months has left me somewhat time poor, plus, work in the factory has gone nuts and my car hobby has at least for the time being, taken a back seat.

How abut we head back to Nick's in Sunbury?   I also like the idea of a picnic at Hanging Rock, but it's gonna be cold!

Or a trip to the Bellarine to visit RobertD ?

Possible attendees:

Mark
RobertD
Carl
Nick
Kozzy
Ian
Koan
Jarrod

Yes I'm definitely in!!  Name the date a few weeks in advance and I'll make sure I can attend....
Title: Re: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: mrkozzy on 19 July 2017, 02:38 AM
Hi guys.
Count me in.
I've got most of my work overload under control now.
Should be able to make the next catch up.
Date(s)?
Title: Re: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: carl888 on 20 July 2017, 07:32 PM
Gentlemen, I have communicated with Nick and he's up for it.  Only issue is that I note from his FB page he's suffered a family bereavement as of last week.  I propose we leave him alone for a few weeks and revisit the proposal next month (At least to go to Nick's restaurant).  I am up for a local GTG earlier provided it's a decent day, i.e sunny!  I'm tired of this cold :)

Hey guys I'm happy to have you guys and your beautiful machines back at my restaurant which ever Sunday that you like. Just name the date. Lets get more cars this time boys!
Title: Re: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: oversize on 15 September 2017, 12:55 AM
Looks like it'll be more of a Spring GTG now!  Should we just set a date in November and hope most of us are free?  Sounds like a Sunday would be the best day of the week.
Title: Re: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: carl888 on 15 September 2017, 01:08 AM
Was speaking with RobertD yesterday about a GTG, he has an idea, I'll let him expand on that!

Nick, haven't forgotten about you, just been swamped in work.

After a challenging 6 months engaged in building our new home we had carpets laid yesterday and will be moving in next Saturday.
Completed on time and within budget, just.

So finally have time to attend matters 116.  ( have two projects waiting patiently in the shed)

I would be happy to put on a House/SHED warming BBQ on Sunday 19th November,

We can catch up for morning coffee, talk shop then arrange a short rally around the Bellarine Peninsula say from Portarlington to Queenscliff and finish up at 116 headquarters in St Leonards for a BBQ lunch.

Lets just do it.

Thanks Rob, see you then!  It will be Pamela and myself.  Pamela is a vego, she'll bring some food.

Forecast looks like it could turn either way, if fine, I'll be in the W116.
Title: Re: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: robertd on 12 November 2017, 11:39 PM

great Carl, We looking forward to catching up with you both,

Title: Re: Melbourne Mid year GTG 2017
Post by: oversize on 13 November 2017, 09:59 PM
Both Yvonne and I will meet you at the cafe, but it'll only be me at the BBQ since she has some prior appointments to attend.  I finish work late Sat night so I'll definitely need a coffee or 3 by the time I get there!  Unfortunately my mate can't make it so he won't be attending and it also means I won't be in a Benz (again)!  Next gathering I'll BYO Merc (didn't I say that last time)???

I'm gluten free, dairy free but I'll BYO burgers & maybe some snags/bread...

Looking forward to the long awaited catchup!

Big thank you to Rob and Judy for hosting an excellent lunch for us last Sunday.  A very good day was had by all and welcoming us to your new home was very much appreciated.  Thanks to Lochie as well for the distraction down the road!

Some pics to follow.

Until next time, 

CJ

Arrrgggghhhhh    #*^%@!!       Im angry I missed it.


Ive only just surfaced lads. This new assignment at work is giving me the shits! 5 weeks of 7 day work non stop so far.

To make matters worse the GTG day was my birthday weekend. I intended squeezing a round outta everyone.

Ah well looks like a good day was had by those who showed.

I'm sorry I missed it..

Next time hopefully.
