Yup I'll be at Kohatu around 9 on Sunday... maybe a little earlier as the iced coffee has enticed me. 

Sounds like the grassy areas have become a swamp since the kaikoura quake so parking could be rather difficult.

As per last meet look out for the pogs bus, will probably be in the campsite somewhere.

See you guys there!

Thanks to everyone that made it along! Yet another interesting meet

My, (and Pogs) favorite was the "vulcan" we didn't see it run but we were both pleased with the all riveted alloy and interesting trailer and boat hitch design.

Close behind for coolness for me was the Jet powered Jet boat!

Now i'll just pic dump the rest of my photos of boats, turns out I need ALOT more practise with photographing moving objects but there's a few NZ record breaking boats, steam boilers, boat barries and of course... a mighty fine Johnson or two.

I have a euro meet that day, but their cruise is ending at Aniseed valley so I may pop on down for a while. 

I'll be entering these kind of events once I raise up the e30s sump.

What's everyone's thoughts on the next meet? Maybe it's time for the Pohara bowls? I'm not sure if they have a "season" but I can call and find out.

Yeah im keen on bowls again.. I wonder if they have closed up for the year? Could try a different club but that one was lush plus its a great drive to get there. Hell.. racing over Takaka hill to go to lawn bowls. That's living right there!!!

What about cable bay or somewhere else for a meet? 

Oh also we found a good meet spot- Kaka point at Kaiterteri. Good parking, lush views and picnic tables. Heaps of space to throw a frisbee or go for a swim at breaker bay.

Or go further afield and do a run over to Collingwood for lunch?

And when? After Easter for nest meet?
