If you go left at the caltex and head for the showgrounds there is a street on the left about 400mtrs.. It is a dead end at the school and the pool and there is a spot there where people could meet. Samford get VERY busy on weekend with car and bike clubs and the coffee shop hoards as it is without the extra attraction of Downshift so finding a place to meet is very difficult.. the school is a good option. Personally I don't go out at all on weekends unless I have to and only after 4ish when all the "visitors" have gone back to Brisbane..The garage gets fed up with people meeting there except at night when they are not soo busy, that's when the Mt glorious/Mt Nebo night time crowd often meet late before heading up into the mountains.. PS... I wouldn't plan on a cruise back to Brisbane via the mountains on a weekend unless you like a 50-60 kph procession with very few passing opportunities, and several unmarked cars, Golf GTi, Arions and utes.. Those are strictly weekday roads but watch for idiots on push bikes with a death wish...and trucks from the road works they are doing up there at the moment . They travel on the PEI road across the double whites on blind corners or do 5kph up the hill. You may go around a corner and find a truck almost stationary in front of you...

I agree with what you say, I have not taken my wrx for a propper run yet (since dp+tune) because of the christmas holiday double demerit points. :innocent:

I would be happy to meet anywhere, the School sounds good.

Oh really? I just assumed that QLD would have it as well.

So how many people do we have so far... 3?

Don't plan on me being there...Like I said.. I tend to stay around home on weekends to avoid crowds and if I go it will just be for a quick look incase there is something interesting there..My sons will be going but I think they will probably leave the rexs at home and go in their Sierras.The Downshift organisers are trying to get 4x4s involved as well. I believe they did an article on 4x4s that were at the last one.There will be a lot of rexs there but I don't know how many are members here.. There is a QLD rex club and they usually go but I am not sure and I am not going to pay for the privilege of joining just to go in processions on weekends... :giggle: :giggle: I was a member there for 3-4 years and it was just not worth paying membership fees. The web site would sometimes go for days without a single post and most of the stuff was on weekends and on the southside so total waste of time for me and having to PAY money to help people online who needed advice just seems a little strange. They may not even exist anymore as Facebook has taken over from most forums.. This one here is a good example.. There seems to be just half a dozen people who come here any more... :tumbleweed:

At first I thought, hang on, it was on Sunday, I went. But got it mixed up with slammed. lol. Was ok, I left just as the cops arrived. That sucked as there were some sweet rides there.

But Downshift? Dunno. I'll be heading up to Rising Sun on Friday morning though. :)

Aiming for close to opening time. Or 9am at the latest. If you're there, then you're there. :)

I think if you get there at 9 you will be the only person there...It is an afternoon thing..According to the Downshift website that I just checked, it is from 4pm till 7pm....Some people get there early but I wouldn't arrive before 2pm at the earliest..
