Hi everyone,

For those of you who where at the last meeting, you will already know that I have taken over as Events Co-Ordinator until the AGM in march.

For those of you who missed the meeting... you know now.

We have a few events planned for next year, some are already listed on the club website in the diary section.

What I want to know - is what you guys want to do, for a cruise.

Rob and Nipper mentioned something about a BBQ in the hunter valley.

I have also had some people say they want to go on another southern beaches cruise.

If anyone has some ideas, or knows of some interesting places to cruise to post them up here.

I have not joined the club yet but have just downloaded the form and will be sending it through very shortly.

I have been through Kangaroo Valley a few times about a year ago and its a great place for a cruise.

I hope you dont mind my suggestions even though Im not in the club yet.

Hi,

A few very good suggestions...

I guess I have got some planning ahead of me.

If anyone knows the Kangaroo valley or Jenolin caves area at all, and wants to help out... let me know!

What about a car rally where you have to find stuff and information until you get to the destination. Have prizes for winners and stuff like that.

Kelli,

Just slightly off the topic. I went to one of the club meets at Parramatta late last year just to observe, and am keen to join the next cruise with you guys. The only problem is I don't drive a Falcon or any Ford for that matter. I drive a 98 Nissan Pulsar SSS. I have spoken to Nick about that and he said it would be fine, what do you think?

Let me know because I'm keen to go on a cruise!!

Exactly what I have been trying to do. A drive were you have to
write down signs on road that we put there and follow a MAP [Lol]
with hints on which way to go.Could be two or three ways to go but only one right one.. Then drive it keeping sort of under speed limit. Then the closest to that time wins.. With say 5 points for every min, taken off for being too quick. One for being too slow or something like that.. But has to be simple.. Thinking north west area???? Dural & north west ???

well that rules me out as a potential winner! haha

i'm up for it, but i'll get lost to be brutally honest!
maybe we should just make the first person to get there the winner. that way it would be contest between michael (eb on nos) and mark! hehe

I don't know where to do it in NSW Kell but I have been on plenty of these before and have made up 3 that I use at the Discovery Centre for car clubs that visit. I can help you out with the planning of the questions if you like, drop me an email to [email protected] or ring me 03 5227 8709.

Felicity :cool:
