    Hi there,

    Despite lurking about the forum for a while, I'd failed to see this thread and felt quite alone in Canberra!

    Anyway, I probably didn't qualify until I picked up my Frog over Easter.

    Looking fwd to catching up on the next get together as I will be overseas on the 1st May. Have a great time though.

    Cheers

    You should contact Mike Neil ([email protected]) as he is the Citroen club contact in Canberra. He has an ID19 and Traction.

    On June 19 there is "Battle of Waterloo"- combined French and British car day- where the 50th anniversary of the D Citroen and P403 will be celebrated.

    Look forward to meeting you and your car at next outing. Should be another club plate run on May 22 (the Temora run was shifted from our usual 4th Sunday of month to fit the flying day shedule)

    I've had a quick catch up with Mike already. He met me at the Ampol Servo in Scullin whilst I was giving the car a once-over before I decided to buy it.

    I'll put the 4th Sunday of the in my diary and keep in contact.

    Cheers

    This run is on this Sunday- all French cars welcome (old and new!). I'll be driving my 306, it hasn't had a run in the country for ages. So far we have a CX, Fuego, Laguna, P306, P205GTi....anyone else?

    Here is the latest news release from the museum:

    30 April & 1 May Flying Weekend

    This weekend Temora Aviation Museum will be hosting a flying weekend. Most
    of the Museum’s aircraft will be seen over both days, including the
    Wirraway, Spitfire, Canberra, Meteor, Tiger Moth, Vampire and Cessna 0-2A.

    Visiting the Museum on Sunday 1 May will be the Royal Australian Air Force
    (RAAF) Roulette Aerobatic Team. The Roulettes are a part-time aerobatic team
    that are comprised of Qualified Flying Instructors, from the Central Flying
    School, RAAF Base East Sale. The RAAF Base is located at Sale, in Gippsland,
    200km from Melbourne. The Roulettes will be available to sign autographs and
    talk to the public before their flying display. The Museum looks forward to
    having them visit!

    Representatives from ‘Wheelies with Wings’ will also have a table set up on
    Sunday’s flying day. They are a charitable non-profit company, established
    to offer physically disabled people the opportunity to gain a flying
    experience. This allows people with a physical disability the opportunity to
    gain a sense of freedom and achievement - a stepping-stone to use for
    further challenges.

    Predicted weather for flying weekend

    Make sure you dress in layers this coming flying weekend as it looks like
    the days could start off cool to become warm. Currently, this weekend’s
    weather forecast for Temora looks like it will be mostly sunny on Saturday
    with a top of 18 degrees. Likewise, a mostly sunny day on Sunday with a top
    of 21 degrees is expected.

    Come along to Temora Aviation Museum’s flying weekend to check out all that
    it has to offer.

    Border to Yass... 41kms... Yass to Harden... 67kms... Harden to Temora... 84kms...

    With Murrumbateman, Bowning, Binalong, Harden, Murrumburrah, Wallendbean, Stockinbingal, Springdale and Combaning to slow down for along the way (some to 50kmh), 2 hours is a pretty optimistic estimate of the travelling time.

    But there's some good roads along the way, especially between Bowning and Harden... have fun. Sorry I can't be there.
