    This event is coming up in ten days... I will need to ask for numbers by early next week so that I can book a table.

    A reminder that it is on the Citroen CC NSW event calendar so suitable for club plated vehicles.

    Anyone else not contacted me yet please let me know asap and I can ask for a few more seats.

    Good! Another Beige DS?

    Hmmm, SNBCM. Not a great name for the event....it really has no class, no panache, no... je ne sai quoi! Just wrong.

    Suggestions for a renaming of this event please.

    9:00 am tomorrow morning (Sunday 16th March) for all who are coming. There is probably room for a few more than have notified me already, so call if you can or just turn up.

    The Chevrons (CCCNSW magazine) lists as 10am and I have noticed in the past that Peugeot owners like to sleep in on Sunday mornings too!

    G'day,
    a great time was had by all. Cute little waitress as well, although I couldn't work out her accent.

    Well organised Michael.

    Thanks Les. You have to admit I did an excellent job on both the location and the weather! Good to see the table filled again, though it would seem that in fact it is the Citroen drivers who are not comfortable with the notion of Sunday mornings.

    If you think the waitress accent is interesting you should try to have a phone conversation with her. For some reason the management get her to call to confirm booking! Very hard to understand.

    Any votes for the location/date for the next one??

    G'day,
    I noticed that all the Pug drivers were there early.
    Could the accent be French with a slight lisp?

    How far would you like to travel for the next one?

    Hmmm, Grey Gum Cafe? Surely full of old guys on new Harleys? Could be a nice drive though

    I'd highly recommend Grey Gum's cafe and not just because I roast their coffee (Morgan's Handcrafted Coffee)

    How long would it take to get to Grey Gum cafe? I do like the idea of a coffee that would follow an early morning squirt along decent roads with some Aussie Froggers.

    how long is a piece of string????

    Problem with early morning squirts, is all the early morning squirts on their damn bikes doing 15km/h up the hill and hogging the road.

    Mind you, siting patiently behind them at redline in 1st gear usually sorts that little issue out.

    Takes just over an hour and a half from our Roastery in Penrith - it is a fun windy road out through national park.
