    Default Driveday in December Or Janurary(Sydney area.Kind of)

    Hey guys.

    If there is enough intrest shown. I would like to try and organise a drive day sometime in December or early Janurary on a Saturday. Starting from the Southern Highlands(only 1hr 20mins from the city) and driving down to the beach.(was thinking maby Kiama) The drive will be aprox 45 minutes there and 45 minutes back, having lunch down there, or even a swim. Anyone is welcome, though mainly french cars. Its a great drive down there, through Either Macquarie Pass or Jamberoo, but most of all it would be nice to see a heap of french cars motoring together.

    If you have any other ideas please put them foward.
    The dates i have in mind are December 12th Saturday. Or the 9th Or 16th Of Janurary.

    Please express ideas, dates, locations, etc

    Kind Regards Cam.

    I'll be in that.
    Does the George IV at Picton qualify as the Southern Highlands, (starting point).
    Easy for Sydney starters to get to and a dammed fine in-house brewed beer to finish with.

    Gamma sounds like a great idea. Although it will be a long drive for the Sydney siders , i think whoever comes will have a great drive down there. I was also thinking if we start in pictonin the morning about 9ish and then continue straight down to the beach for lunch and a few photos. If we were to go down via jamberoo and the come home via macqurie pass and the likes i thik it will be a great drive. Ending up for a brew or two in picton.

    Keep the ideas flowing,as Im not much of an organiser but just like to see Pugs driving together(or french cars for that matter).

    So lets see what happens. But im keen to go before christmas.

    So is there any more interest at all. You know you want to guys. Great roads and the beach would just top it off.

    Thinking about the 16 of Janurary now as its to close to Christmas i think and i dont know if my Pug will actually be going before that.

    But ill keep everyone updated.

    Excuse my dumbness but when is the long weekend. I was thnking the 16th which is the second weekend and is a saturday. I think if we were to meet around about the 9 o clock mark, and then travel from there. As i said i would like people to put foward ideas for the day. Lunch or different road we can explore. Let others know.

    Cam,

    More likely than not, we'll be organising the 2nd Aussiefrogs BBQ Day around Australia day, on the 23rd or 30th. After last year's success, I'm hoping we succeed at a large turn-out again this year.

    Perhaps even get the Citroen folk to come down.

    Details are still sketchy, but just thought I'd let you know what I was thinking.

    Cheers,
    Lincoln

    Don't know yet. Lane Cove worked really well last time and I'm thinking of the same place again. However, as it is a lunch and in the afternoon, perhaps those interested in a drive could get one out of the way in the morning and then come to the BBQ.

    Just a thought...

    OK. The next weekend should be fine. It will be the 9th then. So can we plug in the 9th for now and go from there. How does that sound.

    OK.

    So im now going to be going on the 9th. Starting somewhere on the highway. (i would say the Pheasents nest Mobil) and then meeting at eh robertson Pie shop and heading down Macquarie Pass and onto kiama. Have something to eat and then go up jamberoo pass then head home. It would take about 5 hours ide say to finish the whole day. But we will be mostly driving all day . So its now time to put your names down.

    There is now 1 205gti and an MI16(my mate)

    Who else is in.

    Well i was thinking Mc Donalds in mittagong. Which is just into the town itself on the left. But if there is a group coming from Syd then maby you all can meet at the Mobile on the highway and then ill meet you at robertson pie shop.
