Cruises and Events / Bedfords 50th celebration
« on: March 16, 2019, 09:55:59 PM »
Hey... Would you like to join us, celebrating CF bedfords 50th birthday this year?
As this is once in a life time celebrations, we in NSW, Australia,  are going to hold two events this year.

One in August on 24th & 25th of August , for a run from Sydney on   Saturday, maybe thru the central coast to Newcastle, stopping for lunch, photo shoot, cruise in convoy to maybe Newcastle for another photo shoot and dinner, maybe a night time cruise along Newcastle's foreshore, a very popular spot and route for car enthusiasts and another possible night time photo shoot.

And the second on the Oct long weekend 5th , 6th and 7th.
Rob Slater,  is hosting this weekend, on his property in Huskisson NSW, just south of Wollongong/ Sydney. Saturday for traveling and setting up camp, There is plenty of room for vans, caravans, tents, then we can all enjoy a bonfire, BBQ , drinks and music that night.
Then head out on a planned cruise on Sunday to a pub or bistro for lunch, and back in convoy for another drive, photo shoot, and another convoy back to camp for a second night of partying and talking all things bedford,  and then Monday we all can start  heading home at our leisure.
 
Please reply if you would like to attend these weekends, and i will keep you informed as it gets closer with more details.

If your van is not on the road, your still welcome to join in on these once in a life time events.

We will also need volunteers to take pictures and videos of the events and convoys, on route. So if you have the skills and want to help out please let me know.

If any of you have any contacts or friends in any form of media,  Local TV or magazines, plz get in contact with me as it might be fun to have some coverage of these events.

It will be a awesome weekend meeting up, checking out vans and meeting their owners. Its such a great way to get ideas and tap into all the beddy brains, who have lovingly cared for and restored these beloved vans.

My phone number is 0422975697 to call or send a text message
my email is wendy4096@gmail.com
Your feed back is greatly appreciated if you would like to come along and have a fun idea for the group to do.
 
I'm so looking forward to meeting you all and your vans.
Cheers Wendy & Ray

Cruises and Events / Who is turning 50?
« on: August 17, 2018, 10:48:35 PM »
Guess whos turning 50 next year ?????

Its our beloved BEDFORD CF 50th ANNIVERSARY
IN 2019
Who is keen to help us celebrate this historic occasion,
coming upon us on the 31st of Oct 2019?

From the stats of the last poll we ran, the consensus was that the Bedford Vans Australia Facebook page was our UNofficial Bedford Van club for all states & territories.

Soooooo.......

We ( John Forbes and myself) would like to put forward that we dedicate the saturday 2nd and sunday the 3rd of nov 2019 for our celebrations.

We would like to hear from each and everyone out there who is keen to join in, please put your thoughts into this so we can have a really great weekend.

We also urge our CF van clan in New Zealand and the UK to join us in the celebrations as well!!!

So please fill in the poll below and you can also add an option, or send us a suggestion by PM or comment below, if you wish.

Were looking for a central location to the majority of those interested in attending, because this is on a 2 day weekend , we feel it should be one in each state to allow easy travel to the events, be were keen to see what the rest of you guys think.

Were looking at a weekend away somewhere, head out early on saturday, arrive at a determined point and go for a cruise so we can enjoy a bedford convoy, dazzle the crowds with our awesome machines, and arrive at our venue mid arvo, enjoy a bbq and a few cold ones, around a fire, sharing bedford stories until the last one cant recall any more... awaken to the sound of a cold start V8 van , hot coffee, tea, yummy bacon and egg rolls for breakfast, chillin n relaxing while chatting about bedfords again.
And to mark the occasion and essential photo shoot with our vans and owners all lined up and then sadly all head home around 2 pm on the sunday.....

WE WELCOME YOUR IDEAS AND SUGGESTIONS.
Looking forward to a great bedford blitz day to celebrate this milestone in motoring history.

Fletch from Classic Restos visit the 2018 van nationals.
Phil Lister's beddy gets a few seconds of air time...be sure not to blink 😉 .
Awesome Van's restored by their dedicated owners...you can really  see the passion  vanners have for their rides...
These events are not only for Van's in top show condition, they were plenty of Van's outside the shed in various stages...its all about getting your van out and about going for a cruise and the fun of meeting up with other like minded vanners.
So it would be great to see more bedfords turn up at these long weekends 😎.
See ya there !!
2019 will be in Charters Towers QLD
2020 will be in Parkes NSW

Ok im reposting this from a facebook post, if you want to get in contact with Sam
Send me a pm and i will get his deatils for you!
He sounds like a great person to meet! And his van too!


Hey team! Just wanted to fill you in on what our Bedford adventure and our mission and ask a little help.

My names Sam, my dog Bo and I are traveling the country for the next two years on a mission of men's suicide prevention and mental health awareness. The way we do that is we tow around a caravan that we've built into a Barbershop, and trade haircuts and cut throats shaves for a barter. Like a little bit of food or petrol or somewhere to park the van. We're on the road for the next two years visiting Every.Single.Town in New Zealand.

We've had our ups and downs during the journey as far as the van goes but thank goodness to some wonderful people that have helped with what they can along the way.

During this time we're making a documentary about our men focused on the good things we blokes do!

I want to put out an offer to anyone that's keen on Bedfords we will call in and give ya some cuts and spin some yarns.

We also need some advice on how to either get a new gearbox for a 1.8 slant or a suibible replacement engine and drivetrain? Our reverse is non existent so probably need that at somepoint.

At the moment we're heading through Hamilton to Coromandel in the next few weeks then continuing north.

If you want to follow our adventure head over to www.facebook.com/thebarterbarber

Thanks so much for reading this post,

Happy Vanning!

Sam and Bobo
