    Another Zedfest down! I'd like to thank everyone that made the trip, if you guys keep coming, we will keep having them! Was great to see all the old heads, and a couple of new ones too!

    The QLD convoy made it down without issue this time, which was a mega relief for me, as I didn't close the shed door until just before 2AM Friday morning (7:30AM depart time). Both PNK300 and the silver bullet ran great all weekend, except for Cara's seat belt that was stuck fully out after the Saturday cruise. Turned out to be a broken cog!

    Massive thanks to everyone who helped make this one run so smoothly. I was a lot concerned that we weren't going to get the numbers, and although it was the smallest yet, I thought it was one of the most relaxed, and I certainly enjoyed myself ;)

    Was also great to see Mitch again, I'm sure we will be at Zedfest #9 in Tamworth if you organise it :D

    Special thanks to Judy and Ian for the food, it was all amazing and we all really appreciate the huge effort you guys put in! :D

    Thanks to Rob for the cruise route, it was a beautiful drive!

    Thanks to Cara for the presentation dinner!

    Unfortunately I didn't take any photos all weekend, so hopefully others post some up soon!

    Was great to head up for the Sunday! Next time I will definitely head up for the whole weekend. Some amazing cars and great people with heaps of advice and knowledge.
    I only got this photo of anyone else's car, although it isn't the best, the rest were of my own car on the trip up to Armidale. Keen to see some more photos.

    Quality rather than quantity often works well. Look forward to some ppl, zed and food pics ... Cara's muffins perhaps? :D

    Another awesome zedfest!

    Thanks heaps to Mike for organising - you did a great job and I hope the stress was all worth it!
    Thanks to Ian and Judy - amazing food which made things so much easier!

    It was a great drive down in the Blue 370Z. Unfortunately I dont think Nasty Girl would have made it so she stayed at home in the garage.

    Great drive down and back with not a lot of traffic!

    Cruise on Saturday was great - beautiful roads and scenery - thanks Rob for organising.

    Was great to see everyone again and just chill out for a weekend. Like Mike said whilst it was the smallest one it gave us a chance to meet everyone and get to know each other a lot better (we still had 25-30 people!)

    Looking forward to the next one! It's on you Mitch! :p

    hahaha I was trying to avoid needing to find an external website to host the pics on before being able to link the URL. Inevitably that's how we end up with broken links when 'photobucket' goes under etc. Figured facebook is alot more secure long term. Plus everything is already on there so trying to save time.

    I'll see what I can do!

    Ahh I understand.

    Don't stress over the matter. The onus is certainly on me for not having it so it's ok. My partner has Facebook, I'll hit her up tonight so I can have a peek :)

    Will try get some pictures up -it’s become a hassle seeing as chrome no longer supports XP and I can’t access the forum on my desktop anymore :/

    Big thanks to room 21 for letting us take over your kitchenette on Thursday to prep for BBQ.

    Also big thanks to Leah & Iain for transporting a lot of the food & stuff to do BBQ.

    Looks like it was a good weekend. Only problem with us being so remote over here, we miss these awesome events. We are slowly but steadily building up the zed community over here in WA again, im sure Ross, luke and some of the original early 2000's crew over here are looking forward to it being like the old days with a true community spirit. Quite a few more zeds are making it back onto the road.
