Hi Oz Volvo community,

You've been waiting longer than usual, but I'm pleased to say that the Oz Volvo National Meet 2017 is now official!

Each year the Meet has become bigger and better, and I'd love for this year to be the biggest one yet. We're well positioned for most of the NSW and Victorian crowds, and hopefully some of you folk from Tasmania and South Australia can be tempted into making the sojourn to Benalla.

Friday October 6 - a special edition of the [FNH] Friday Night Hangz
Saturday October 7 - the centrepiece of the weekend, the Oz Volvo show'n'shine and BBQ, followed by dinner on Saturday night (I'm still working on the location for that)
Sunday October 8 - we'll be doing our usual cruise around the region, and we may also stop by Winton for an informal display and a look at the driver training event being run by the BMW Victoria club there. If you'd like to participate in that event, it's open to any cars, but you'll need a few hundred dollars, a helmet, and a car that will pass scrutineering! Keep an eye on the BMW Vic club's website for more details.

$50. You can bring a second Volvo for half price. More details and registration form here:

We'll list a preferred motel in the coming weeks.

Friday Night Hangz
Are you arriving in Benalla on Friday night? Come on down to Georgina's Restaurant for some dinner @ 7pm

    Hadn't thought of that location, not bad, makes taking the 122 up viable too.

    Very nice location, beautiful gardens, and quite a few good photo locations by the lake.

    Accommodation booked, if your thinking of going it might be a good idea to book your rooms early, not a lot available that weekend.

    Call me now!

    So, where are the westside kids having burgers at Truckstop Deluxe or similar??

    PS. Someone find me a 240 - I reckon I could get something OzVolvo meet worthy done in a weekend!
    It'd save me tainting the event with a (shudder) Ford.
