    I had not realised it was a competition! Anyway, we don't aim for vulgar excess, just 60 will do

    Thanks mods for making this thread a sticky.

    Michael,

    Glad the club is organising an event. I was beginning to wonder.

    Thanks UFO, I was beginning to wonder too

    I hope you can attend, it should be a great day. We will need a show of hands to get approximate numbers before the event so that the Museum people can allocate sufficient space

    Remarkably it does not clash with anything else in our ever busy calendar. It's "locked in". I'll try to get some of the South Coast mob and their Ds enthused.

    Sounds Good UFO. It is not a bad location for the south coast crew. Hope a few can make it.

    We had a good show of hands at the Sydney meeting so if all goes well it will be a good day.

    Do we have any interest from the ACT? Other areas?

    It would be good to get some other French cars along too, not just Citroen!

    The Campbelltown event is always good fun for lovers of old machinery. Should be a great day.

    Michael - a DS23ie from a bit further south than us will also be along. So that should be three South Coast Ds.

    Thanks UFO, look forward to seeing you there. Not many formal RSVPs still but it is looking like good numbers of Citroens coming on Sunday.

    Display cars should arrive earlier if possible to avoid crowds but in any case drive up to the vehicle entrance, not the car park, and ask the whereabouts of the Citroen club. There should be some club flags on display.

    Any other Citroen still welcome, or any French cars for that matter!

    Number of attendees has jumped in the last couple of days. Looks like being a good turn up.

    If possible display cars should arrive at or before 9:00 am but later arrivals are OK, just be careful driving onto the site.

    The display will probably be on the flat area to the left of the access drive. Look for the Citroen flags or ask the gate control . (Don't forget to make a decent contribution to the Museum who are hosting us!)

    Weather is looking good for tomorrow's event. Showers should clear early morning for a comfortable day.

    Bring a picnic or food and drink available on site.

    And a few more photos! Thanks to everyone for coming and helping. Couldn't have asked for better weather or location. I will contact the museum to offer our thanks.

    It pumps green liquid around, I just assumed it was relevant.

    "Dťesse" Roland Barthes, 'Mythologies', 1957

    The Dťesse has all the characteristics of one of those objects fallen from another universe that fed the mania for novelty in the eighteenth century and a similar mania expressed by modern science fiction: the Dťesse is first and foremost the new Nautilus.
