Don't worry mate, will be plenty more.. This is just one of many more to come. Going with A few suggestions via pm's.. To have it every month and for members who cannot attend one month they can always make it to the next one.

So don't worry. Will definitely have more in the future so we can catch up again. I am sure Willangi will be awesome

And i have this crazy idea in my head of changing the location every month so we can see the country side while we are at it.

Sounds good maybe next time.
Mixing it up might make it fare to all..... you know perhaps 1 nth 1 sth 1 east 1 west and 1 anywhere ...... lunch time allows more of a chance to travel and another thought is somewhere with a playground for all the kids (no matter what age) to keep the m occupied.
Make sure you post some pics of the meet too.

Simon! I have to withdraw from this meet. We have club training that weekend at Morgan. Did you register to do the training? This is rock climbing and sand training...a must do. Still early enough to set another date for the first meet.
Poolman, are you interested in going to the training day?

I won't be going on the training at morgan mate, Don't know if my 4wd will be back from Toyota and repaired by then. If it needs a new engine thats a 4week wait from Japan...

So no training for me till i am 100% sure it is all ok.

I will be attending Mt.Lofty in my other car or by bike depending on the weather is dry.

Would be great if we could all be there - any reason why we can't adjust the date to fit in with all - after all we're not that many yet....... just a thought.:D

I had only picked the 30th of August down as i know i am able to make it to this meet.

I was thinking we could have the september one early to mid september to allow those who cant make it to an August meet due to commitments will be able to make the September one. If you do want me to change the date for the August one, give me a date and i will change it to suit.

If so, I will change it but am unable to attend the meet on any other weekend in August.
Please let me know and i will adjust the date in the first post accordingly.

i do doubt you could annoy us. . . its only an 8hr drive, a stones throw over the border. Just watch out for the federalies monitoring the border from mexico..

If the date could be changed to a weekend in Sept then more people would have more notice to book it in. Someone else said they couldn't make it this month due to being away as well. I think the first meet should include as many members as possible and a bit o time to book it in would be great. Only my thoughts though because I like the idea and want to see it become successful.

I agree Ekki Thump! As you said earlier, it could be combined meeting for those convoying as well.
