Well done dave, a big thumbs up.
It was a great day and once again we were all let down by the number of no shows.

If you commit to coming you should come, 'cause these events take alot of time to organise and it doesn't look good for the forums if we book dinner for 40 people and only 15 people turn up. The turn out was discusting and all the people that said they will come and didn't should hang their heads in shame.

I have 53 pics which I will be uploading very soon.

Re: FordForums 2004 Christmas Cruise - 18th December

Wanted to go on this cruise but work has been flat out for the last few months before chrissy, Phillip Island is a good drive and the missus hadnt been there yet. Bad to see those who put their name down then didnt show, makes it hard for the organisers who make a booking then only half show up, resteraunt owners dont like it

Was this ugly bloke the winner of the motorbike race?

After seeing my pics, you might be wandering what the Cops were doing there.

Well a motorised reported that a couple of cars that were involved in the cruise were drag racing, the occused was breath tested and we all were given a warning. No fines were issued. lucky for us all, the cops were not pricks, just trying to keep the roads safe for everyone.

Re: 2004 christmas party

Well done to Dave and Bron , a great day, maybe a bit too hot and uncomfortable at times with the flies lol The BBQ was good and it was also great tp see the Philip Is Raceway especially the behind the scene's which you normally dont get to see, also great to catch up with FordForums members.Great pics too there Goran. Merry Xmas and a safe New Year....till then
Cheers John

Re: FordForums 2004 Christmas Cruise - 18th December

Hi all. Hope you all had a great time. Sorry to hear about the lack of numbers. I noticed that I was on the list right to the end of this thread, and I am quite sure I DID post a while back that I couldnt come over for the cruise...in fact I never posted that I would be going in the first place.

I would have LOVED to have been there, but this weekend was out (I just paid a bunch of speeding fines) and as it turns out Ive been crook anyway.

Anyway, I hope you all had fun, and to those who didnt turn up, well I can assure you, if I lived in Vic, *I* wouldnt have wasted the opportunity!

Dang sounds like I missed a great day. Next time I will be there. Make sure I won't be working. Once again the curse of the pikers occurs. Guys if you don't want to go just don't put your name down, saves everyone a lot of hassle.

Great Pic's,
Thanks for posting them so quick. i cant wait to see all the video footage and pics on a cd. It will be great. I know some of the pics I took where of my dads car and my mate's ute but I was under orders. We are getting some stuff made up for x-mas with the pics.So who ever makes the cd can leave alot of them off it.

Cheers..........KEV................GO FORD

There was meant to be 40 people at the dinner, only 15 showed up.

Very dissapointing turn out, but it meant that my odds of winning something was better and I ended up with a very nice cap :)

Huge thanks to Dave, Bron and everyone who actually showed up. It was a huge day and an even bigger dinner. I'll post later when I wake up a bit more!

Merry Christmas everybody!

What a busy day! Correction, what a brilliant day.

Thankyou Dave and Bron and to anyone else who helped to create this day, numbers were down, heat was up....but it was still a blast.

Another big thankyou to Goran who gave me a lift again in his TE50, it is always fun going for a ride in one of them!

As for the sunburn....well....I expected there to be shade somewhere!!! It's okay though, it doesn't hurt too much.

To those who put their names down and didn't turn up to the dinner without even given a reason all I can say is you have a lot of apologising to do to Dave who went to so much time and effort just to be fobbed off. Disgraceful really.

Hopefully one day we can get a cruise where everyone whose name is on the final list actually bothers to turn up.

Once again though, congrats to Dave and Bron on a brilliant cruise.

This is the bloke you're after...





Had a fantastic time. Thanks to Dave and Bron for organising this cruise, and putting in so much of their time towards it. Mate you really know how to put on a cruise! Can't wait for the NYE party!
Thanks to everyone for showing up and behaving on the roads.

Thanks for those pics Goran!

Now to get some more sleep in and put something on that sun burn!

Out of the 200+ pictures I took for the day (which I'll post tomorrow when I finish uploading them) these two are my favs.





xbwgn: If you want the full sized shots, let me know mate and I'll e-mail them to you.
