Sorry to let you down but I agree, we should have it.
The reason its not here is because the farmers dont want to milking cows an hour earlier :roll:
Would make so much since to have the east coast all on 1 time line.

With that I might just re-iterate.

Please don't expect to rock up over the weekend to stay expecting someone will let u on their site or there's one for you.

Sam and I had and arrangement with one site and another party who unfortunately had to pull out.

You will need to call the park (see the first page for the number) and organise something with them.

The other thing I should mention.

Anyone who has the idea that they are coming to the event to cause issues with other participants, be obnoxious, drive in a careless/wreck less state please don't bother coming.

Anyone who drives like an idiot for any reason will not be tolerated and will of course be reported to the authorities.

As mentioned before please leave your negative comments, thoughts & "driving skills" at home.

This is a successful event which people bring their families including young children to.

Sorry for the harshness of that but I have to make sure people are aware of the above for obvious reasons.

A bit late I know but here's what Jonno, Drew and myself came up with for the cruise route. Would have been up earlier but I have been preoccupied with the birth of my new son. Drove this a couple of months ago and it took about 2 hours.

Righto that's another successful Geminats done for another year.
Amazing how quickly it goes over the weekend.

We had everything thrown at us. Poor weather for the hillclimb, troubles with the caravan park, some of us got flooded camping, car issues before the cruise, car issues on the way home.

Everyone (but Ethan I think) is now home safely and still receiving good feed back.

Some changes to next year will be mentioned in the new thread. This being we will be venturing back to The Entrance.
We had a good experience with the owners and they're happy to re-accommodate us there.
I'll throw the majority of the information in there.

Again thanks Justin and Drew for setting up the cruise.

Bill for doing a stella job with the hillclimb and Him/Dave/Sam for getting the green monster up and getting some awesome track time in this year!

Do it all again in less than a years time!
SuperCruise will be the 27th of March 2016.

Friends.
I need some feed back here.

We did a bit of gambling with changing things around I.e. shifting the cruise to later in the day

Having dinner instead of lunch.

I don't know how well that worked out for everyone.

Should I
A. Go back to a Morning meet up cruise for lunch and finish in the afternoon?
B. Hope there's not 100593548573532z dramas before hand and run with a meet up around lunch cruise in the afternoon for dinner?

I appreciate the thanks and stuff from everyone.
I had some people give me feed back about other aspects of the day which I've taken into account
I'm interested to hear feed back on any element of the weekend.

FYI I can't change the weather. :P

If you don't feel like mentioning it on here PM or text me.

Im easy , the dinner was good , but it may not be for some as a late night thing ( driving home late = possible problems for thoise who have to travel far ).

I think it would be better to get a poll going to see the general consensus of people to find what they prefer.

My 2 cents, dinner didnt work.
Cruise, eat, cruise seems to have worked better in the past

the weather was a downer , which might have contributed a little to it. Still , 27 ~ 29 people wasnt a bad dinner turnout

Both valid points.

The idea behind the dinner was to get anyone who needed to drive long distance for the day to get there on time.

My guess is due to the weather people may have assumed the worst.

I think Andrew is right. Will go back to meet up at 10 cruise for lunch then keep going finishing back at the Bunnings car park.
