CLINKERFEST 21 FEB Wilberforce SUCCESS!!! Pics too

Postby Jasper » Wed Nov 25, 2009 6:08 pm

well like the title suggests i was just wanting to know what interest was out there for some old school boats to get together!

as most of you know old boats is kinda my thing and judging by the interest in old boat buildups i know im not the only one. so what do you all reckon? i'm very keen sometime before winter to see if this might happen and i guess i hoped there might be a few other people who thought the same.

so i know it can be a pain in the a*rse to tow boats around the country so i'm well aware that not everyone will be keen, especially if you have to travel a long way. i guess what we might need to scope out is:-

1. people's interest in meeting.
2. timeframe of when you might be available (up until the end of this season maybe)
3. how far you might be willing to travel to attend something like this.

i guess once we get this info then we can work out a time and place where it might be possible to do this and try and please the majority

so let's hear it! :D

THESE ARE THE DETAILS AS OF 2-2-10

OK so these are the details for sure:

Where and When:
- Sunday 21st Feb
- Butterfly Farm at Wilberforce (over the bridge at windsor about 5min drive)
- Turn up after about 830am (she wont launch boats before that)

Cost:
- $15per boat plus $6per adult. $3per child.

What's Happening:
- We have 3 beaches booked which she says will be plenty for the 5-10 boats i expect will show. (please let me know who's coming so we can let a beach go if there's not enough or grab another if there's going to be heaps)
- Kiosk will be open for people wanting food from there.
- Pool and other facilities is for our use too if people are bringing families who arent interested in talking old school.
- BBQ facilities available if anyone wants to cook lunch.

Booking is under BRYCE. Hope to see plenty there. Don't be shy. Bring what you have regardless of it being rough or shiny. Even come if you don't own one and come say hi to some of the wake community.

1. Also very keen
2. Give a bit of time in advance and I could go anytime, weekends obviously
3. Would prefer to stay within the state (Hawkesbury River would be perfect) but could stretch it to the Murray or a northern destination if need be.

Do it Jasper !! Organise it man :wink:

I'd be keen, most weekends are good.

Hawkesbury is good for me. If its a weekend away Wisemans might be good, as they have the pub on hand. Just a thought.

Cheers

1. I like the idea.
2. March is no good for me (OS), otherwise most weekends are ok.
3. I'd prefer the Hawkesbury, between Windsor and Wisemans, but could travel a few hours north or south.

this will be awesome!!

i hope that just because we all (so far) except one seem to be within a couple of hours drive this doesnt put you off. it doesnt necessarily have to happen around sydney even though thats where the most interest seems to be. put your interest up and lets get this happening!!

come on mexicans and cane toads i know you have boats too and there's plenty of you out there...... you know who you are :)

i don't really know what other people think about what sort of boats could/should be there but i'd personally love to see old slappers as well as 20k resto's. from old aussie clinkers to the early american mc's and cc's. don't be shy people!

Was just thinking another place if people are into camping is Dargle. http://www.dargle.com.au/ski_beaches.htm

We haven't been there but others say its not to bad.

Blowering Dam could be a good choice, depending on where the vast majority of people are coming from. Roughly half way between Sydney & Melbourne. There is plenty of room for everyone so not crammed like a on a river. You can camp there and it is about 10-15 mins out of Tumut so if you are not into camping you can stay in there or at least duck in for supplies.

I used to go there a bit in the early 90s when it was almost full. It was a great place. Went for a look about 5 or 6 years ago at the height of the drought and it was 1 or 2 % full. The water was a long way from the concrete boat ramp. However I just had a search for water levels and it is around 33% full at the moment. That is still a lot of surface area.

ok so the idea's sat on the table for a while so it might be time to make a decision about it all and get some boats together!

looks like the consensus might be to keep it around sydney so lets find a spot that we can cram a few boats in. i'm not real familiar with good spots so might need some input into that.

also ive had a look at some dates so here's 2 that would suit me but its not all about me so let us know what you reckon.
Sun 10th Jan
Sun 21st Feb

maybe we can meet sat arv and have a feed and a laugh and get the boats out early on the sunday. anyone who wants to make a weekend out of it can or people can just show up for sunday. just an idea.

thoughts? commitment?

Have a look at Del Rio, just across the Webbs Creek ferry at Wisemans. Easy to access from most places.........well sort of except for the Vics.
Camping, cabins, good boat ramp........everything. River might be a bit busy in Jan though...........although you can always find a spot up or down ther river.
Might want look at March????
I'm easy & will fit in anytime.
Check it out........

I'm still pretty keen Jasper, so whenever is good for me - weekends obviously though.

And Hawkesbury would be best. Spent a weekend at Del rio once and found the water to be terrible, the boat chop was unbelievable. Good park though with good accom and boat ramp. No beach also, only small jetty.

Maybe we could roll this out state by state? I am keen also but do not really want to tow boat 8+ hrs from Geelong! I know from this Wake site there are large groups of us in each state.
