2012 VAN NATS OVER & DONE

Post by vanner065 on 19/4/2012, 1:28 am

Well the Van Nats 2012 is over. What an amazing event. It was so hard to pin point the best part as it was the most different Nationals most of us have ever been to. Of coarse it all started with the road trip. A number of groups from different locations left at different times for the amazing trip from one side of Australia to the other. This drive has to be done if you have never done it, the sights you see along the way you may never experience if you do not do this trip. Anyway thank you to Panther Van Club for putting on a great event at a great location. I have not heard a bad word about the whole event. It was great to meet so many new Vanners and see so many new vans and WA is loaded with great Vans. I know i have returned back east knowing i have a new bunch of Vanning friends from WA and there are a few looking at doing the trip next year. Over 60 vans on display and around 250 cars and bikes also. Around 40 vans were on the convoy which was held on the Sunday and it was a great sight to see.
To those who could not make it, i hope you had a great time in what ever you did, just remember every Easter is the VAN NATIONALS, so you know you need to plan for it every year. For those who went to the Albury Van In i hope you all enjoyed your event also. Lets hope that everyone can be together next year at Cabulture.
Thanks to everyone who played a part in what was my most memorable VAN NATS ever. Now it is photo time. Smile
