Dean has purchased #366 from Rowan and it now lives in Moruya with #210. We are hoping that if we park them close together we may get offspring.

Moruya! Practically neighbours. We are just outside Bega with 059. Love to cross paths some day.

Cheers, Paul

Likewise. I'm near Nowra. I really think an 'eastcoast' (or from anywhere for that matter) OKA gathering would be great.

That's great Russ, good to hear. We are busy doing bits and pieces to both 366 and 210 but are always ready for a trip. Do you have any suggestions?

We could offer a venue - we have a "bush block" of 680 acres at the top of Brown Mountain, near Nimmitabel. Or if more civilisation is wanted, we have of course our farm in the Bega Valley.

Glad also to fit in with any other suggestions for a meet, maybe closer to most participants.

Cheers, Paul

My first thought was Feb. (after school hols) and 'down the coast somewhere'.

Your offer of a venue is great Paul. As long as Feb. suits you.

The bush block sounds like a great idea to us plenty of room to show off the toys.

February for the East Coast sounds good, but not for our bush block. February is peak bushfire season, and the property could be a death trap in a fire.

It would be a good venue, very private and atmospheric, but safer later in March or April.

Cheers, Paul

Paul that's understandable. We may want to consider Mystery Bay after the hols. It would be a great spot and by the beach.

12 OKAs for the WA gathering - can the southerners beat that - let's hope. Do we set a date for Mystery Bay in Feb some time and see how we go?

Hi

We are also down in the south east regions - in Jindabyne. February sounds great to us - over the mountain to the coast or anywhere else in the vicinity.

Assuming we're on the road by then we may be able to make it. We're flexible on timing and location so you guys decide and we'll do our best.

We're up for an east coast gathering after mid March and before mid to late May. Don't get back from the US till Feb and then have a wedding in March and then want to return to the US for a few months while we have the rig over here. Or I am happy to organise one after August.

I have just come back from a couple of days at Narooma and while there stopped in at Mystery Bay to check the camping etc.
$15 per night for two adults, $2 per child. Plenty of camp sites,several water taps thru camp grounds, toilets, nice grass,level to slightly sloping. You can have camp fires but good idea to bring your own wood. Beach is great and there are many walks or mountain bike rides nearby.
I'm suggesting Feb 23/24 but we'll see what the popularity of that weekend is before it's locked in.
