Not that i have a road going Z, that weekend i am hosting for their annual Xmas party, followed by a "Drive up in the Hills", the Datsun Sports Owners Assoc, the true original Datsun sports car, the Roadsters and the Fairladys.

If we pass the Zeds, we'll make sure to wave!



The original hairdressers hahaha.  :P

I apologise but I have to travel overseas for work on sunday 8th so cannot host the BBQ for the cruise that day :(.  This has just come up with little warning.  Options are either somebody else hosts the BBQ or we can postpone until January.  I am available any weekend in Jan for the cruise and host the BBQ.  Let me know your preferences.

I am in cold Mongolia desert now proudly wearing a Z car beanie and wishing I was back in the warmth of Brisi.  Communications not so good but will get back on the net in the next day or 2.
cheers
Alan

That's no good Alan! I'm away for all of January too :(

I would offer to host the BBQ but my bbq is dead. I can borrow a webber from a friend if need be though? I have a large yard and a quiet enough street to park in. Near the KFC in Kedron off of Gympie road.

Or we could just do the drive and get a coffee somewhere.

Or we could do the Yatala Drive-In instead? I looked at the upcoming movies and no combos really grab me but could watch Thor and Hunger Games on Sun 1st December?

Not sure how it fits in with any of the above but I would also like a nice industrial type location to take some photos of all the cars. Not sure what's around but something like this would be cool: http://shaun-maluga....order-run-2013/ Or a big cement carpark or something. I just find the industrial/concrete stuff more interesting for car photos :)

Mongolia , You're not digging holes are you Alan?
I would perfur we stick with the original date . I may have a few options up my sleeve which may work and not cause a large disruption. There will be a run in early February if all plans fall into place along with other events called ROADZ TO WARWICK for the NDN2015 . Give me a few days and I will report back. There will be more details on these ROADZ events closer to Christmas. Shaun ,Geoff is looking for pics of the Mountain run to use as subject material in that matter I" pm" you about.

Like Shaun's idea of doing the run and getting coffee after somewhere. Could do photo shoot at my work on weekends. Two wharehouses with heaps of concrete out front. 8)

What if we asked Alan to host his run later in mid 2014. It would be a ideal run for another time .As the mountain may be a little crowded on that day.It seems the 8th is popular with a lot of a Car Clubs.
So what about a different run. I am still happy to host a BBQ at my home and I will set out a run as I have done in the past .But it will be southside and I am thinking of out Beaudesert way near the New dam for a photo shoot and a coffee if possible.
But as before if anyone wants to jump in and host PLEASE feel free to do so . But I will need to know this week . No later that the 22 November if I am hosting. I need to clean up.

I'm easy m8s but little nervous taking the Z out atm with all this large hail about. I think we would be better off to look at doing our Christmas run in July. What do you think? 8)

I say we do a meet up on the 8th still. It doesn't have to be a well choreographed run, we can just check out what the weather is like on Saturday and whoever wants to meet up on Sunday can just turn up. There's a place here in Hawthorne called Hawthorne Garage, fairluy central for those on North and South Sides. They do coffee and deli food and have some parking but I haven't actually been there yet. I can check it out to make sure the grubs good (enough) and we can meet there for a coffee/food around lunch or mid afternoon. Anyone who wants to go for a drive afterwards can do so or we can head to some locations for photoshoots (some industrial areas nearby and the ass end of the Gateway bridge) or just head home if either of those is not your thing.

If we do want to do photos, between 4pm and 6pm is ideal so maybe we could do coffee mid afternoon.

Then we can do a better run next year when Alan is back :)

Ok all we need now is a hands up who is coming and if a BBQ at Aub"s place or Shaun's trendy coffee shop. I am in either way. Would love to have it at my place but can't atm. Could always have fish and chips at Wynnum some were along the bay front.

Im keen for a run on the 8th, I still haven't had the coin to get the car tuned properly so it is running super rich but I am still keen for a run somewhere. As long as i get to drive the car I am happy :D

Looks like a no go. Might be better to shoot for a Christmas in July run and BBQ as this time of year everyone is busy with other commitments.  ???

I'm still keen to meet and maybe grab a few photos. I'll stick with the Hawthorne Garage Plan, 3pm. I will definitely check out the food tomorrow and report back. If anyone wants to come just let me know.

Cool as mate. Im pretty keen for it. Might be riding solo as the missus hates the lack of aircon.... Personally I hate the thought of power being choked.
