Hi jason,

Thanks, I will keep pushing on with arrangements here.



I understand that the weekend may be the same weekend of the All Ford Day in Adelaide.

So need to get them fired up for this event.



Cheers

Hi jason,



We should throw them the challenge or do we settle for a ratio of 4 Vics to 1 SA member.



Cheers

Jason

Point taken the SA guys are obviously coming in force to out number Victorians.



What are your thoughts with doing a small two or three hour show and shine on Sunday morning in the park opposite the Commodore from say 0900 to 1100 whilst people have breaky.



I could get the local Ford guys to put a few cars in and perhaps some other club cars - "Henry's classics" a local Thunderbird/Mustang group. They may join us for a run after



Some feedback perhaps from members?

Cheers

Sound like a great idea.
Maybe even the Saturday morning, that would give the late comers a little extra time to get to the Mount.

What are your thoughts on lunch at Penola on the Sunday.
The SA and Vic guys could both leave from there for the trip home.

Penola sounds good.

Now, there are a few galleries there and some great antique type shops.

Additionally, there is quite an interesting historical path that you can walk down with a big display of early Australiana living. Original house etc. No cost to do this.

The Mary McKillop is there also.. a small few there to enter and look through the interpretive centre. Will get details.



Yes, Penola sounds like the go. And it i,s as you pointed out in the path for both the SA group and Vics to go home.

The road between Penola and Casterton is sensational for a quick squirt. Penola to Adelaide through 40 wineries now thats another question.



The pub in town is both large and has a good fare. Great outdoor beer garden.

Sounds like a car display Saturday opposite the Commodore then. I will get on with organising that.

Penola Sunday. Any other thoughts people. Again I will talk with the Pub there.



Have a great Christmas everyone

Cheers

Bernie

Thumbs up Update on Weekend at Mt. Gambier

Hi all,



Thoughts at the moment are..



#1 Saturday - small show/shine with local Ford Mustang etc.

Afternoon run to lake for those who havn't seen it. Possibly
a visit to the Benara Homestead.

Dinner and videos at the Commodore

#2 Sunday - Breakfast then run to cave gardens then onto
Penola.

Heritage walks, Mary McKillop interpretative centre.
Art galleries, antique shops. Visits of wineries.

Lunch at heritage style hotel in town - beer garden etc.



Depart at leisure. SA members through Coonawarra to
Adelaide. Vic guys through to Hamilton direct from Penola.

Once again I will forward the tourist packages to Bruce in
SA and Jason in Vic. Within the next fourteen (14) days.



Any other states interested in attending??

See www.mountgambier.gov.org

Or/and place 'Post' here with details and I will forward a
pack direct to your post box.

The Commodore Motel is the central accommodation
point and the dinner and video bar location.

Cheers

Bernie

Hi all



As per the Tread "Weekend at Bernie's"



Don't forget to book your room at the Commodore as soon as possible.

Give me any feedback or ideas here.

Tourism - www.mountgambier.gov.org - worth a look also.

Cheers

Bernie

Hi all



A weekly update to keep this 'Thread ' at the top of the list - page one (1)



All accommodation will still be at the Commodore Motel - as last year,

The motel restaurant and back room are booked for a wedding on Saturday afternoon and night



Book early to be at this central location.

So we will walk a leisurely 5 minutes to a nearby restaurant. They have a big screen and a seperate bar that we can use.

Good food and drinks prices. Bring some cash for here!! They do take cards if you prefer.

Will talk this through with Jason at 'All Ford Day', prior to locking anything in.

Cheers all

Bernie

A small show/shine will take place opposite the Commodoire Motel. Keep this in mind if travelling in on Saturday. Try and be there by 0900. Over with by 1200 then off to have some lunch.

Have asked a few local enthusiasts to join us and show their cars.

Cheers
