ITS ON AGAIN. 16TH - 18TH SEPTEMBER 2016.
Open to anyone with a vintage van to come along and enjoy the weekend here in the beautiful Grampians area of Victoria. As we did last year we will have toilets and showers available but no powered sites.There are some cabins available for anyone wanting to come along who dont have a van at present. A donation to cover costs of power and water is all we ask. We will provide a welcome sausage sizzle again on the Friday night. Maybe BYO salads to share would be good. If anyone has some ideas or would like to entertain us on the Saturday night please give us a call. To help with planning just give us a call or email us if you would like to come along. We would love to meet everyone again and see some new vans as well.

Only a few more days and it will be on! Just had word that Lisa from Vintage Caravans Magazine is on the road and will be here for our Weekend. Looking forward to meeting her it will be a fun time. We also have a great friend and musician Neil Higgins from Wangaratta who will entertain us on the Saturday night too. See you all on Friday, Cheers Jenny and Max.
Great to hear preparations are all in order and it will be terrific to have some live Sat. Night music in front of the open fire. I like two sorts the of music - Country and ......Western ........... that's the first Dad joke right there ! I hope you have been storing them up Max ( only new ones count ) and looking forward to another visit. Safe travels all.
Ps Max might need you to have a look at the accelerator cable again. Bert still going strong but needs some adjustment I think - an additional sinker might do it.

Just an update for everyone. The weekend is definitely on and we are going ahead with everything as planned. The paddocks are very wet but around the cabin areas are Ok and we are sure we can fit everyone in OK. The driveway is a bit damp lol but it is solid. The Town Hall fire will be going as well as Maxs garage fire so we will all be comfortable. The weekend weather here seems to be fine with little rain expected. The Western Highway in our area is open but I am not sure of other road closures and it could change in 2 days as well so I guess everyone has to make there own decisions to attend but we are hoping to see you all here if you can make it. Cheers Max and Jenny.
Hi all, thank you for a lovely weekend, Greg and I only joined with the group from Saturday arvo, but it was great to see many different vans of all shapes and sizes. Thank you to Max and Jenny for their hospitality and a terrific venue, great entertainment and good company! Love our teardrop but can't wait to get the "new" Rowvan on the road, cheers guys Anne & Greg, Ballarat
Yes, great weekend and thanks to Max and Jen we were all made very welcome and looked after - you both put in a lot of effort and Bert and Co. Appreciate it. We will look forward to next year - maybe with a new van! It wIll be great to see the Rowvan there Anne and Greg along with a lot more. Safe travels all. See you in Feb. at Bridgewater if not before.

Great photos SGTL. Thanks for posting them, It was obviously a great weekend. (Hope none of you got too waterlogged going or coming!)
Regarding your video, in principle you can upload it to Photobucket and then copy the link to your post in the normal way. If you then click on the 'photo' in the post, the video will run in a Photobucket window (but you need to tell people to click on the photo, there's no normal 'Play arrow' symbol). I just tried it and it works, but in practice success may depend on the size of the video clip (mine was 65 MB) and the speed of your internet connection for the upload.
An alternative is to upload the video to YouTube and then post the link to the clip. In that case the clip will play in the forum window.
