    Hey guys. We have four rooms left at the leisure in so get amongst it and make the phone call if you’re keen.

    just got my 300zx a month ago and booked in last week so count me in, thought it would be a good jump start into what seems like a great community, if its still running by then :p

    Good stuff! I regret not going to the first one after not having my zed for long, and not knowing anyone.

    You won't be sorry

    Saturday will be cruise and lunch day, Sunday will be the show and shine. I guess see which appeals to you? You’re certainly welcome to drop in for as much or as little of the weekend as you can manage.

    What he said.

    There are still four rooms available, it would be nice to have the venue locked away all to ourselves!

    So now seems like a good time to release the itinerary for the weekend. We currently have three spots left at the Country Leisure Inn so if you're intending to join now is a great time to book!

    Day 1: Friday April 10th

    Arrival and check in at the Country Leisure Inn, 86 Cobra St, Dubbo. We'll be taking advantage of the pool and garden area pictured below to host a welcome BBQ which members Ian and Judy (IB) have generously offered to put on for us at a cost of $10ea.

    Day 2: Saturday April 11th

    This is traditionally the cruise day, and will start with a cruise to Parkes Observatory with some photo opportunities along the way. We'll take a run via the national park to the observatory, into town for lunch at the Railway Hotel, and then back via the Newell Highway. We have the option of a casual dinner on the Saturday night at one of several local restaurants.

    Day 3: Sunday April 12th

    This will be our Show 'n Shine Day, with the presentation of awards to follow in the evening. The Show & Shine will be held in the morning at Regand Park on Tamworth St, Dubbo. This is a really new park at the end of Tamowrth St on the Macquarie River... so new in fact that the satellite pic below shows it still under construction! Council have however approved us for use of this facility, and I hope that we can get a good turn out to show off our cars to the local community. The Show & Shine will run from morning through to lunch time.

    For the afternoon I have organised a trip to a local winery Red Earth Estate which is a short drive from the Motel.

    For the awards and presentation dinner I have booked a room at the Garden Hotel which is an easy 12 minute walk from the Motel. The booking is from 6:00pm on the left deck.

    Day 4: Monday April 13th

    Go home!

    Hey guys. Our window to have the place to ourselves is rapidly closing and I believe there are two or even three rooms still available. If you're on the fence now is the time to jump in! Please call the Country Leisure Motel directly on 02 6882 3988 and mention that you are with the 300zx club to make your booking.

    Benny, mate... I think you misunderstand me, perhaps...? ;)

    We brought both cars (the Zed and the Forester) to Armidale, but the Zed’s currently off-the-road, and has been since mid-Jan last year... Has some electrical gremlin (o_O) that’s causing the alarm to keep going off roughly 5-10 seconds after arming/locking the car, and to add insult to injury on the same day, the taillights were also stuck on (like whilst the car was turned off and parked, and the keys were in my pocket stuck on!?)...

    And I just haven’t had the funds to get her looked over by an auto-electrician to work out what the problem is...

    We’re all still coming, but that’s why it might be in the Subaru only ( :oops: ), and sans ( :( ) the Zed...

    Ahh, well if you're having issues with your Zed, that'll explain not bringing it. Sorry mate, i thought it was just because of the extra seats needed from your expanding family. :)
    Sorry to hear your Zed has some sparky problems with it. I'm sure it'll be an easy fix for the pro's though. Looks like i won't be able to see it for another two years then buddy.
    However i'm glad to hear you're still coming - even if Zedless. :)

    Hey guys, some good news (for those already booked). I believe the venue is officially booked out, which means it’ll be an AUS300 exclusive.

    Now if you’re intending to come but haven’t yet booked a room please get in touch with me via PM and we’ll see what we can do.

    I don’t but I’ll see if I can get the venue to provide me with a list. It would be good to know...
