Victorian Christmas GTG (Coburg) 16th December 2012
« on: 03 December 2012, 11:44 PM »
Re-posted with Carl888's permission, as some of you may've missed it:

How about a Melbourne GTG Sunday morning, 16th. December?  Plan would be to have a morning coffee around 9:30am in Coburg at a local cafe, if you like, you can come back to the unoffical club rooms a minutes drive away where we can tell stories and look at W116s?  Anyone interested?

I'm definitely going, even if it's only the two of us!  It'd be a good opportunity for some new members to join in too....   :)

Thanks Mark, the plan is to meet here:

http://www.urbanspoon.com/r/71/1707737/restaurant/Melbourne/8th-Nerve-Cafe-Coburg

I can do 9am on Saturday the 15th or 9:30am Sunday the 16th, up to you!  We can meet there then head to the factory afterwards.  I will be working so can't take the whole day off, but a few hours is fine.

Regards,

Carl.

W116s are the preferred mode of transport, but not essential!  Sadly I'll just be driving my AU FG V8....

Andrew the owner of that business is a friend of mine, you can mention my name if you call.  He did say yesterday he wasn't taking in any pre-christmas work though, I hope you don't need it by then.  His work is superb btw.

Morning boys. Just a reminder about this Sunday. I think it's Mark and myself at this stage. Come on!!  If you can let me know if your attending that would be great as the cafe have offered to reserve us a table. You can either post a reply here or 0434 768 308.

We'd love to have you there Tony but if you're still not well, you're better off at home (and so are we)!  LOL!  So that makes three of us and I'm looking forward to it....  Pity I won't have a 116 ready, but that'll happen early next year

Well you guys that didn't make it missed a great day!  I met  a couple of the guys finally and they're great blokes.  I saw the amazing man-cave filled with car-porn.  And even in a very short time I learnt a few new things.  Thanks guys we'll have to do it again early in the new year!  Some pix of the day to follow....
