Guys this is on again. The Annual Picnic at Hanging Rock car show. I have never been :( but understand it is a great event. I would be great to see xfalcon make a decent appearance at both AFD and Hanging Rock this year.
I am determined it this year.

*can someone who has been before please organise some premeets for the club to meet up at*

I won't be able to make it this year but I would have to agree with this as a pre meet location.

Calder Park BP Servos outbound.

the XP is all polished and vacuumed, just hope it doesn't get covered in bugs getting there and that there is no rain.

23c, clearing showers, 5% chance of rain but less that 1mm.

I went, would I go again, NO!.

Pain in the arse to get in, we were put on the northen side of the rock, no-body bothered to walk up our way, most probably didn't even realise there were a 100 or so cars up there.

It was to disjointed, too big, just didn't like it. We left early

$20 per car entry, for what? To line the coffers of the car club, 2000+ display cars, trucks, bikes PLUS spectators fees!!!! Nice little earner.

Probably wait a week next year and do the All Ford Day at Geelong.

it is too big but what can they do they already got rid of the later model stuff and making it 30 year old cars would only get rid of the few VK/VL and XFs
it would be a bastard if they had a a cut off and shut the gate once they reached the cut off
after driving there and all
