Post by: carl888 on 27 December 2016, 08:45 PM
Sounds like a plan!

I'm in with RobertD, date and time to be confirmed, but looks like venue is sorted :)

Sometime mid January I suppose.

PM sent to Depa, I'm sure we'll get something off the ground.  Hopefully more will turn up than the 2-3 we usually get here in Victoria!

I don't like to brag...

but seriously, everyone needs to call up or email someone they know with a 116 and get them to come. from the MB club, one thats parked nearby, whatever, you just make contact and say this is the date, keep it nearby and not too long and attract more people!

Sorry I couldn't make it but the GF's Birthday Party was booked ages ago and it obviously had priority....  I'll organise another in a couple of months and give lots of notice so everyone can make it.

And suggested dates at this stage (or dates you definitely can't make it)??

All good man, definitely sounds like a great idea!

Well, what a great afternoon/night.  Firstly thanks very much to Nick and his excellent restaurant!  Well worth a visit:

https://www.facebook.com/Sapore-Nostro-142935262418416/?pnref=lhc

RobertD, Kozzy, Jarrod (Robert's Son), Nick and myself were attendees.  Lots of rubbish was spoken and it was by consensus we agreed to make it a more regular occurrence! 

We just need more people to show, you know who you are!

Pics to follow later.

Nicely done gents!
If I were to try and arrange one of these here in Vancouver I will be the only one there :'(  In all my time here and since owning the 6.9 I have only seen one 116 here and it was an old dog 300SD and she was on her last legs too.
Plenty at the wreckers though :-\
