For real, a WA cruise: 8th August

Due to there not being enough Astina/Laser cruises in Perth I wanted to get the ball rolling

I was planning to have a cruise on Saturday 24th July or Saturday 7th August. A lot will depend on the response I get back in the next few days. If I get a lot of "dude, not enough notice" or other complaints I will drop the idea of having it next Sat.

The idea is not to have the best cruise ever. It is simply a chance to meet up, have a look at what others have done to their cars and perhaps encourage others to plan cruises.

Whatever week is decided I was planning to start at 10:30 am at Burswood carpark (beside the dome) leave there at 11:00 am head to Mundaring via Midland, swing round to back of Kalamunda, (avoiding the zig zag if bling bling rims can't take it) having a stop before finishing up at Guilford. Should be finished by 1:30pm. The usual deal applies, follow the road rules, don't get lost, don't get road rage, be polite and courteous drivers... yada yada yada.

If you can't make it then at least post if you are keen for a meet in future. If you can make it turn up.Tell your girlfriend or boyfriend they whinge too much and that you are going for a drive. They should have cooled off enough by the time you get back. hehe.

What I have seen before in some threads is people putting back the times a few weeks because person x can't make it that day. New drama pops up and the date keeps slipping away. Just say if you are keen, turn up, meet new people and hopefully Perth can have a few cruses, better ones in future. So pick a day out of these two, I am planning to post in www.astinagt.com/forum and www.fordlaser.com/forum as well as send to email address for http://www.drive.to/astinaclub . So if it seems I'm not paying attention to what you are saying on one forum, its probably because of the other forum. If enough people want to go on each, I'll just make it 2 cruises. If I have enough imagination I'll have a different trip planned for second cruise.

Look forward to a lot of interest.

wooz wooz

Update for Astina/Laser cruise.

Its probably too ambitious to have cruise this Saturday. So, unless I hear major complaints Saturday 24th July is cancelled.

Being a Monday to Friday 9-5 guy I forgot that some people work on weekends (Saturdays in particular it seems). So let me know what day you can attend on either Saturday 7th August or Sunday 8th August.

Good to hear from people that are keen to go on a cruise.

Well it looks like the best day for everyone that has responded to this post is Sunday 8th August.

soo.... anyone that is keen, and able to make it, turn up to carpark on Great Eastern Hwy side of Burswood dome between 10:30 am and 11:00 am this Sunday. I should be there in a green Astina at 10:30.

Weather reports say early shower sunday then fine. So fingers crossed.

Not quite sure how many are going. 3 guys from ford laser said they were keen to go. 1 guy from drive.to/astinaclub said he would show up in the morning. So not including you, somewhere between 1 and 5.

haha I know what you mean.

Take an hour on Sunday morning to turn up at 10:30, if it looks like a no show then you can piss off at 11. :wink:

If I can get some people to turn up then at least we can swap phone numbers or emails to catch up later. Well best expectations are.. its going to be a small group.

Ah well, back to hijacking other cruises. I have seen a red BG at one cruise (unfortunately I was getting a lift with a mate so I didn't have the green beast, cough* stockas cough*) other than that its pretty uncommon to see astinas in a cruise. Should probably head to local bowls club

Anyone want to sound off if they are coming?

Well there will be me in my green bg.

3 guys from AstinaGT forums said they were going..

Might get Des from drive.to/astinaclub to show in his noble green ba.

And the 5 people from Fordlaser forums..

2 tx3 turbos, 2 kf lasers & a proton.

This post will be duplicated on AstinaGT and Fordlaser...
