Hi everyone,
We are having the 2nd Overlanders Gathering on weekend 17-19 September 2010. :thumbup:

It will be at Lincomb Farm, due to the success of ELCO dos here and the helpfullness of Tony. :clap:

There will be evening fires, saturday night bbq (Hopefully hosted by Barrie from Waypoint tours), off road course, film/talks (Maybe?) if the weather is not so good, and general tyre kicking !? Its open to all overlanders, so there will be bikers and truckers as well as LC'ers. :mrgreen:

Numbers will be limited so please register and pay in advance, the details will be here http://www.theoverlander.org/component/option,com_facileforms/Itemid,73/
This form will shortly have all the prices/details now that we have confiramtion of the dates and location.

Hope to see you there :cool:

Stan, is the event going to be along the line of the RGS overlanding weekend or are you hoping for some vehicle testing as well?

Hi,

I am hoping for more of an informal camping weekend than the talks/trade stands of the RGS. But if anyone wants to do a talk then we can do it !

Also hoping for it to be more hands on so people can look at each others setups, test them off road and chat.

I would like to have some 'workshops' so if anyone wants to do a bit on vehicle prep, recovery, driving or anything then we can do it,but not in the way of 'formal prsentations',more of a 'lets have a look at this..', so if you want to do a workshop on anything please pm/email me. [email protected]

I am hoping to have a market place- the overlanders 'car boot' !, so if you have anything to get rid of brig it along, if the weather is bad we may have 'talks' or films in the 'berber tent' i will pitch..

I am getting details and a payment form put up on http://www.theoverlander.org this week

But generally its a fire and a 'crack' :mrgreen:

Hi all,

Just to clarify a few points !

This is a weekend for people interested in 'vehicle based travel' organised by theoverlander.org !

It will be different from the ELCO weekends in that there will be a mix of vehicles, and is not meant in any way to detract from the ELCO do's, but to offer something different, focusing on Overland Travel :thumbup:

I know the venue has been exclusive to ELCO and i appreciate being able to use it for the Overlander Gathering as its a great place for us to have our event !

Cheers
Stan

It sounds like my thoughts on a water pistol are a bit puny, from what you say it looks like I might need full riot protection gear!!................or a wet suit
