Yep.  I'm gonna email them again and see if they have set out the positions for the day yet, but they normally don't do it till about a week before to confirm final numbers.
Good work on the banner to mate.

ok, so confirmed 6 cars and I will receive a map of where we will be situated at the park etc in the next 48 hours.  Like I said, they confirm numbers and finish it all in the last week.
I will arrive at the meeting point next to Commonwealth Ave at approx 0730, so look for my zed as a meeting point.

Does anyone not know what we are doing or where we are going?

Unfortunately, I havn't had the chance/money to paint my zed, so ill just mount the flares over the primer (yes i had the panels fixed up after my shotty bogging incident :D).

I'm in, my car should be out of the shop by then fingers crossed!
Do we have a list of all who are going? I'm also confused about the meeting place and time, as the poster says 10am but are we meeting earlier for a cruise as well?

Ok, so the meeting point is off commonwelath Ave where the Footsall stadium is.  Basically where everyone parks for Floriade next to the bridge.  You will know where to go when you see the hordes of cars driving in there.

Scott,

Last time I went, just follow the cruise and you will find the entrance to the park...is off Ginniderra College car park, off Aikman drive (Arscott house according to the map).

Let us know where our location will be....Chris will need some tree's to hang the banner, or we well need a few poles (can supply).  Bring your chairs and sunblock...Macca's, Hunger Jack, etc are all in short walking distance.

:)

Ok, I didn't get the chance to post anything, have been flat out.

According to the map, they are situated with us aswell.

Chris, I can pick up your sticker on arrival to the meeting place, that isn't a problem.

I am a bit dissapointed i couldnt get my car painted in time, but at least the rear guards are fixed up from the last meet i was at...  So ill be there with rear flares mounted over primer, lol.  Maybe i will meet someone who wants to paint my car for cheap.

Pig = DO IT!!!
As for the paint, a mate knows and trusts a bloke who has agreed to beat and paint it in the next month or so for a good price, so it will go away again for a little while :(  But i'll still have it for Marques.
According to someone who doesn't know the car very well "its not very noticable" its damn obvious to me, but meh, such is life.

I'm keeping my eye on weather updates, looks like gnarly wind & rain Saturday continuing into Sunday. So it poses the question, will Marquee In The Park still be on, if so will you guys be going if the weather looks dodgy?
I really try to keep mine out of the wet, but the odd trip out won't hurt.

What's everyone's thoughts?

My thought is that i have rear quater panels that have been redone in fibre glass, i recal the panel beater saying rain will mess it up unless painted, so on that basis, i dunno if i would take her out till after the respray.
