2018 VINTAGE CARAVAN NATIONALS
VISIT TO SURF TRAGIC'S SHED - Wednesday, 25 April
ACTIVITY: We have been invited to visit forum member Surf Tragic's 'Don Workshop'. Surf Tragic has painstakingly restored a number of Don caravans, and is currently working on his parents' 1948 Don 140 which incredibly he found a few kilometres from his home several decades after his parents sold the van in another state. You can read the story here.
Surf Tragic is passionate about quality and originality. Info about some of Surf Tragic's other restorations can be found here and here. Although he has a special interest in Don caravans, the visit will be of interest to anyone who wants to see how a craftsman approaches restoration.
VENUE: Wodonga (69 kilometres from Wangaratta). The exact address will be provided at the Nationals.
TIME: Two sessions - prior booking required:
Group 1: 10 am at Wodonga
Group 2: 2.00 pm at Wodonga
Each visit will last for approximately 2 hours. Morning and afternoon tea will be provided.
COST: No charge.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO NOW: If you want to join the visit to Surf Tragic's Shed you need to book for Group 1 or 2. To book, please post on this thread or PM me (Don Ricardo) with your preferred group.
Please note: We will be aiming to keep each of the groups roughly equal in size to enable visitors to see and hear. For that reason, it may not be possible to allocate everyone their preferred group. First in, best served.
