Default Forum get-together

I know a lot of us meet fleetingly when we're at Corowa (we even sometimes see a Canuck or Pom there) and because of my work I get to catch up with people like Salesman Bob recently in Adelaide, Max, Jan, Tony, Ian and others in New South Wales, and even Jif, Brian, Stu and others in Canada... but to a lot of us our online friends are just names on a screen.

How do people feel about the idea of people in various locations (those close to each other) getting together for a meal sometime before Christmas?

Anybody in the Melbourne area interested, for example?

Bloody good idea - wish I were closer. Did you get any snow this weekend?

Are you planning to do more work to get Nicole's Matilda going?

Hi Bob

The fair looks like it will be a good turn out this year, but with the new RTA restrictions on tracked vehicles on roads Im not sure how I will get into town...Something to think about.

kind regards
Matt

Sounds good... all we need to do is set a date, and wait for some more responses.

Anybody in the Melbourne area interested, for example?

How about it Dave (Austin, Tx.), Dave (Plano, Tx.), and Dave (Harker Heights, Tx.)? The members of the 18th Field Engineer Coy, R.C.E. and the 5th GebirgsJagers are planning a joint mess dinner at the Shady Oak bbq in Fort Worth 2nd weekend in December. You guys want to join us? Derek.

P.S., I'll make sure to invite Dave (Weatherford, Tx.) also.

Four of us from Yass made it to Matts place for the BBQ .
We left Yass at 9am and I drove our truck to Taralga which is about half way to Oberon, to pick up our carrier as it was used at the Taralga vintage farm machinery show, entering the tractor pull. So leaving the truck we continued on in Robert Farmers range rover arriving at matts at about 1pm. Then had a good look around his sheds and having a late lunch in the garden with the native birds meetings matts family. After lunch matt started up the matilda smoking everyone out of the shed, until the engine warmed up then we all went for a short drive. We had a late afternoon tea before leaving picking up the truck on the way home having another yarn and arriving home around 11pm. thanks for that Matt, looking forward to doing that again.
