Whos going and which weekend?

I'll definitely be heading along :-)

I will probably just do one Sunday, and since I don't have to travel, I'll pick the one with the nicest weather :-D

I've been to all the festivals so far, this one is definitely a not be missed event..

I've got a few picks from last year's canams if you want some idea of what to expect.

I'll probably go 2nd weekend, avoids the classic "trials" and has the FJs.

I haven't had a grandstand pass in the past, only general admission, and brought a folding chair. Plenty of spots to watch from.

Missed last year, but was good to meet up with Growler and Bold etc the previous year.

Same - We have booked online this year. For a grandstand seat anywhere on the circuit for 2 people, with parking, cost $106 all up....which is cheap considering its like $70 on the day.
We have booked for the 19th...but I can go again the following weekend if that's the preferred weekend.

Hi all,

I live in Hamilton. I'm really keen on going to the festival, but I don't own a vehicle at the moment and there don't seem to be any buses that go to the venue.

Anyone willing to carry an extra passenger to and from the event ?

Cheers.

Ah sweet. I live in the Hillcrest area, but I should be able to meet up anywhere within the range of the Orbiter or Busit routes.

Let me know if you're confirmed for Sunday, so I can go ahead and book my ticket.

I've PM-ed you my number for easier contact.

Thanks a lot. Cheers.

I've been there last weekend with my wife and son and I would have liked to meet somebody but it seems like you are shy ha ha thanks for the offer Riven maybe next time. I certainly wasn't expecting to know the great mysterious Hugh but a beer could have been great. Next time will be
