Good suggestion Mark, but theres not much at Bedford Park just a few halls and a cricket pitch, all out of site of the general public.

Doofs suggestion of the Bedford hotel in the city might be a good on - central for everyone and we could do a few laps of the roundabout. The pub is oppsite the big flagpole on the roundabout at flemington road and Elizebeth street.

One of my mates cars (not a bedford) in Box Hill says his car is written off due to the hail.  He's quite happy about it actually

Lucky my van is under cover, not so lucky for my other car, which has a broken windscreen and about 100 dints.  We also have a verandah with a perspex roof which now looks like a seive. 3 broken windows and about 20 broken tiles!

Ouch! Glad no beddies were injured in the hail....Just be careful Melbournites - cause they rekon it's gonna hit again around 3pm today - similar to yesterdays golf balls from sky...Keep your beddies under cover !

Can't wait for the run on the 21st ! Are we all happy with the Bedford Hotel in the city??

Just a wild thought: How about we meet up at Bedford Park, do a convoy down Bedford Rd. and travel to Pound Bend Tunnel Park, Warrendyte for a BBQ?

The tunnel is a man made 193 metre long passage (3 metres wide) blasted out of bedrock to divert the Yarra River from a huge loop of the river to drain and mine for gold. Pretty damn impressive, and it's a real nice drive out there. Plenty of spaces for a BBQ and the pub's nearby.

If we could get people who ain't driving Bedfords to film the journey (I have also have a camera) then even better.
Just a thought.
