Sydney OZBENZ Forum Meet Day - Saturday June 4th 2011

Post by thirstymerc » Fri 20 May, 2011 5:35 pm

Come one, come all!

We have been discussing having a Sydney based Forum members catch up for a few weeks now, so after throwing some dates and suggestions around, we have finally locked it in.

Saturday June 4th 2011

Meeting at 10.30am at Heathcote Train station.

From here we will all cruise in our finely crafted cars down through the Royal National Park to Otford, where we can all grab a bite to eat at the The Otford Pantry/Pie shop and have a chat over a coffee while taking in the beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean.

Please see link:

Google Maps - Otford NSW

This is a great opportunity for forum members old and new to get togther and have a catchup outside of the OZBENZ forum, so please see this as an open invite to come along and join us :dance:

Even if you aren't from Sydney and are up for a drive, it would be great to see you!

Depending on how we go on this gathering, I would hope this to be a more regular event in the future, so if you can't make this one, keep an eye out in this forum section for another in the coming months at a new location around Sydney.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

We hope to see you there!

Cheers

Steve

If Gustav is back on the road after a little control arm failure incident (and Mrs Dweezil is ok with it considering we're going away the next weekend) then I'll be there.

*bump*

Definite attendees listed by friday pls.

We are trying to keep the numbers definite to allow us to be flexible with route changes on the day if desired.

1030hrs driver briefing.
A very brief discussion on the desired route plus options & conditions, then roll out.

Plenty of time to chew the fat at the waypoints & enjoy the scenery.

If you're not on the list, we won't know if you are coming, so reply to the thread please if you intend on being there.

If you are a 'maybe' please confirm your attendance by friday thanks.

If it's not pre-war or a W111 cab I'd settle for the Crayford - if nothing else I could get up close to see if my back windows re-design theory would work.

I guess I should make an effort to be there. Saturday is number 1 son's sport day but this Saturday is a home game so he can walk there and there isn't a classic rally rally (or other club motorsport event) this weekend. I will have to check in with the CRC historic plate registrar to see if I can take the "Beast" (aka "Green Machine" - 500SLC). At least the weather is looking like it should be good.

Martin,

It would be great to see you there (in something nice!) and to see more of you on OZBENZ.

No excuse, turn up in something else and bum a ride in another members car. :naughty: :naughty: :naughty: :naughty:

Martin and I are now confirmed, arrive Sydney airport 7.30am and off to pick up new mystery vehicle before meeting you guys...

Should I tell you the engine capacity or would that give it away to much...? :think: :think: :think: :think:

I was thinking C63 wagon because Sandra's was for sale.

now seabelts for FOUR....

my guess is it has to be a CLS. (I figure the E coupe might not be your thing)

Sorry all -looks like I am a non starter due to kids sporting events.

Very disappointed but will try to get to the next one.

Have a great day.

Weather is clear & it's sunshine all around today.

Did a recce last night and the roads are reasonably clean given the assault we've had in the last week & a half.

Temperature is quite cool. Make sure you have a jumper and some warm clothes if you don't like the cold.

Slight breeze, crisp but not annoying.

See you there!

Well, we all made it!
And a good time for all.
I have posted a new thread to upload some photos, I am sure some of you will upload more.
But I did not reveal John's latest wheels, I thought he might like to do that himself.
SeeYa,

Thanks to everyone for turning up I had a great time, and it was great to put faces to names (I think I got that the right way around).

See Chris M's thread for pics, I'll add a couple, I was not great with the camera.

All in all I think we had a successful first meet, even if John didn't find his cache @ heathcote.

Hope everyone had a safe drive home. Looking forward to seeing pics on Chris' thread.

Martin, will take your offer of space @ Alex's for the next meet. I'll give you a buzz in a couple of days.

We'll try and make a coffee / car / meet /run a regular occurrence and see how it works out..
