I've spoken with Dean Holden, VWCV organiser for this event, this
afternoon. We've agreed that there will be a section near the main
pavilion set aside for 'off-road' vans (ie primarily Syncro's, but
also 4Motions, and perhaps vans like Neil's T2, if he can come). This
will be in the same area as the Kombis were last year, but general
Kombis will be elsewhere this year. It will be shared (on the other
side) with the overflow of any buggy's which don't fit with the
Meyers Manx's in the main pavilion. I've told him to expect 6-12
vans, so maybe we should start a poll of who's coming (Les; I'm not
sure how to do that).
I will have photos from the trip (1000+ so far, expecting a lot
more), plus an extensive video from Heidi, and Volker has promised
some 'action footage' by then. If any-one else has good photos, or
especially videos, from other events (eg Bateman's Bay) let me know.
I will be able to project these using my lap-top and projector, but
ideally it would be good if we can put the display in a tent (any-one
have something suitable?) for weather protection, but mostly for
suitable lighting. If some-one else has access to a lap-top and
projector/screen, we can do the slides and video separately.
Another idea would be for some-one to bring ramps (and ? mirror), to
display the underside of a syncro, or to put one in an 'off-road'
Any other suggestions are welcome.
Online applications should be up on the VWCV website soon. Pre-
booking means easier access to the site (streamlined queue for pre-
payed entrants), and other bonuses, and we have a better idea of
who's coming. Please let Les and myself know when you've booked.
I'd especially like to hear from any KttK participants, or other
interstate Syncro members who plan to come. If there are enough,
maybe we can organise a night out before the event.
PS. The date for those who missed my previous email is Sunday 16th of
November, at Cranbourne Racecourse.
