HI All,

Doesnt it start at Bellbird Picnic Area, Yarra BVd, then drive to Docklands, to regroup for our grand
entry!!
The secondary meeting place is for 10:15 at the very end of Docklands Drive

The Checker Plate King, at least it does not rust

Hi,

If you want to find your way to Bellbird park then you might need to arrange to follow someone across town to find it, it is just off the Eastern Freeway near the Chandler highway, but would take a bit to explain how to find it from Bendigo. :)

Hi,

I have just filled in the paperwork for our new venue, 20 feet the otherside of a white line and now the domain of Melbourne City Council, which required all sorts of details including a Risk Management Assement and conditions etc.

Anyway some of the things worth mentioning for those coming along to the Docklands event.

No alcohol to be consumed in or around the display area. I am not sure you are allowed to walk around with Alcoholic drink in Docklands anyway but it was on the paperwork.

All cars to have oil catching devices. Spice has mentioned she will bring some carpet squares but if you know you drop oil or want to be sure you aren't scrubbing the pavement before you leave please be self sufficient or book a carpet square from Spicey. So detailed is the paperwork that between 2:15pm and 2:25pm there will be a rubbish and oil inspection and clean up of the display area. :) We need to supply the clean up stuff too.

Vehicles to provide wheel chocks. As we maybe on a slight sloping area and it is possible for the general public to reach in and release the handbrake and take it out of gear then a small chock under a wheel or two is preferable to stop a wayward Moke rolling across into the market stalls area opposite.

When we are moving in and out of the display area we need people in hi-vis vests walking in front and rear of the convoy and any extra people at intervals along the sides of the vehicles to stop someone accidentally not noticing 30-40 vehicles moving along slowly!! :) If you have passengers with you then tell them to expect to be walking in with a flashy vest.

We have to be ready to enter the area at 10:30am sharp and we leave agian at 2:30pm as a single group. Unless there are exceptional circumstances, like you died, then you cannot leave the display area until this time.

If anyone knows basic first aid let me or Spicemoke know so we can put that on another Form about accidents. Also if you have a first aid kit you can bring let us know also to make sure we cover that condition.

All sounds very formal, but once we are there and the general public is drooling over our Mokes all these T&C's will be worth it.

Hi,

Thanks Jim. Seamoke or Suspend can push you if you break down :)  And if you get a decent run down the Westgate bridge on the way home you should be able to just about roll home.

Since my last post I have also had to draw on pictures of Docklands with photoshop where we are going park and had to write a letter to the various businesses in the precint to let them know we will be there and give them the opportunity to object, as if anyone could not want us there.

On the plus side we don't have to pay the $12,500 Spicemoke mentioned so all my silver tongued wordsmithing today is paying off. :)

Terry

big thanks Terry , I had a unplanned, unwanted side trip to hosital  ::)and was in a panic, so got baby spice to send paperwork across to terry to finish off - (by finish it was unfortunelty at the point of the bulk of it all)

In case people are wondering about the last minute rush - ING owns the land we were on last year, and we were booked for 12 months this year, at the last hour they have extended the lease of a paying activity on there, meaning we needed to spill on to land belonging to Melbourne city council 
Luckily for us the guy in charge has been absolutely brilliant, partially maybe because they also were bumped at the last minute in the same way, for the same event and are feeling a brotherhood with us.  either way the guy has put through a 21 day system in a week for us and been soooooooooo helpful and supportive, hes great.

Bit of unexpected last minute angst, but great part is the contact we have now with events melbourne.
It was a massive pile of forms so thanks so much To terry for stepping in so much without warning, he got a bucket  of paperwork dumped on him ,  especially as I couldnt talk to him and even let him know the site visit results etc.  and what i had spoken to melbourne about
the things I do to get out of some paperwork ::) ::) ::) ::) ::) ::)
 ;) :D

Spicey,
I will need a carpet square.

Seamoke, the Werribee servo for bnicho - is that the one right on the wedge as you enter the Maltby Bypass ?  What time will you be there ?

Yep, that's the one, the Caltex.  I think Seamoke said 9:30 meet-up so I'll aim to be there 9:15 in case everyone's early.  Can make it earlier if expected.  :)

Hi Bnicho,

We are leaving maccas at 8:30 so we should be there by 9:30. if we are early we can hang around a bit,Im sure some tinkering on the Mokes will be going on at that point in the trip! Do you have to split off on the Werribee exit to pick up that Servo or can you get to it from the Hwy???

Sus......you dont want a square of carpet under your Moke,I thought you would take your own cup,so you can tip the drips back in :D
