3RD VEE DUBS@BUSSELTON DRIVE-IN SOUTH WEST CAMPING AND CRUISE WEEKEND
31ST OOCTOBER, 1ST & 2ND NOVEMBER 2014

Following on from the success of the first two Vee Dubs @ the Busselton Drive-in Movies event the VW Club of WA have put together a 3rd South West Drive-in, camping and cruise weekend. We encourage people to cruise down on the Friday. On Saturday there will be a bigger cruise taking in Margaret River and Caves Road before a Drive-in night. To round out the weekend there will be a Sunday morning Show n Shine at the Busselton beachfront that we will share with the Busselton Markets.

Following is all that you need to know.

RESERVED ACCOMMODATION

We have pre-booked a group of powered camp sites and 4 cabins without ensuites or linen for the Friday and Saturday nights at the Kookaburra Caravan Park located close to the beach and a short 10 minute walk from the town centre.

How to Book:
Camping: If you are camping, just turn up at the caravan park office to book in and pay.

Cabins: If you need a cabin call Kookaburra Caravan Park (phone: 9752 1516) and say the code word VW Club to book and arrange payment for your own pre booked cabin.

When to Book:
It is recommended that cabins are booked well in advance by mid September to avoid disappointment.

Where:
Kookaburra Caravan Park, 66 Marine Tce, Busselton.

FRIDAY 31ST OCTOBER

Organise Your Cruise to Busselton
Take an extra day off to cruise down on the Friday and enjoy at least two nights of camping. The idea is for people to organise their own cruise down so keep an eye on the forums for people working up their own cruises to Busselton.

The South West crew will also likely separately organise a cruise from Bunbury to Busselton departing from the Koombana Drive beach car park near the Dolphin Discovery Centre. The aim is to tie in with a cruise down from Perth so again keep an eye out on the forums for details.

SATURDAY 1ST NOVEMBER

11am Margaret River and Caves Road Cruise
We have organised a cruise from the Kookaburra Caravan Park to Margaret River via rural back roads with a 2 hour stop in the Margaret River main street from 12 to 2pm.

We are organising to park our cars on the park at the top of the main street (Reuther Park) to put our cars on display. From this location you can do take a walk down the main street to shop and grab a brew or lunch from a number of cafes.

The cruise will then take in in the northern section of scenic Caves Road with a stop to take in the coast and for photos.

The cruise will depart from the verge parking area opposite the Kookaburra Caravan Park at 11am and a route map will be provided on the day.

Busselton Drive-In
The Drive-in will open for us at 6:00pm as a private event. This year we are also inviting a number of local car clubs to the Drive-in night so we can all show off our rides and have a good chat before the movies start at 7:30pm.

Where:
Busselton Drive-In, 500 Bussell Highway, Busselton.

What Time:
The main gate off Bussell Highway be will be open for our entry at 6pm.

How Much:
Discount rates are Adults $12 and Children $6 (4 14yo inclusive) - CASH ONLY to be paid at the main gate entry.

Food:
The choice is yours to bring your own food to eat early or buy from the classic drive-in Snack Bar.

The Movies:
Two movies will be screened. Closer to the event, details of the movies will be released but rest assured, this year only classic movies will be screened.

Speakers:
Dont worry if your ride doesn't have a radio as the Drive-in still has spaces with classic clip on window speakers.
SUNDAY 2RD NOVEMBER

Busselton Beachfront Show n Shine
To round off the weekend we have organised an informal Show n Shine at the Busselton beachfront to show off your rides to the public. Its a great spot to check out VWs, grab a late breakfast, snack, ice cream or coffee.

Where:
Signal Park, Busselton beachfront at the end of Queen Street next to the Equinox Cafe.

When:
10am to 1pm.

Gate Entry:
Gate entry onto Signal Park is strictly from via the Marine Terrace car park.

Static Display:
For the safety of Vee Dubs, their owners and the public, cars on the reserve are to remain parked for the duration of the gathering.

CRUISE HOME
If you are not from Busselton or staying longer, Sunday afternoon is available for your cruise home. Those heading in similar directions may want to get their own group cruise happening.

TO SHOW YOUR INTEREST
If you are interested in any or all of the weekend events post up your interest/confirmation on the VW Club WA or NoH2O forums, or contact Kim Muste by email, phone or text.

Some peeps may be wondering why no drive-in this year...well sad to say the Busso Drive-in closed in April and will be running boot car sales and swap meets over Sept/Oct. Some good news though is that over the summer months the drive-in will be screening Australian classic movies....not sure when.

...so the idea for this years event is to have a bigger cruise and let peeps do there own thing Saturday night....you never know if the drive-in happens to be open some peeps may still be able to go.

If you are going down to Busso for the weekend please ring the campsite and book a spot. I called today as I am going down for an extra day and she informed me that she wanted people to book ahead.

See you there

Further to Justin's post...

I've been in contact again with the caravan park and if possible it would be good if people could ring and book their sites/provide names so that checking in is easier on the day. You will need to do this especially if you are extending your stay either side of the 'reserved fri and sat nights'.

...and it is still ok for people planning on camping the fri and sat nights to simply turn up and check in at the park office to book in...so all is good.

Also...the park has reserved more sites so even better Very Happy
