    Good News of VCCCP show!!

    I agree with the time and place of the meeting as you mentioned above and also agree with "change the date" of next meeting from 25th of March to 23rd of March, which is not an issue, but I think the matter is to discuss about the place, for which we'll have to get confirm reservation.

    Confirm from my side for Sailing Club for same time as you mentioned.
    It would be great if few more people agree.

    Atleast I do not have his number to make any contact, if anybody else so do try and let him know about the plan.
    Have you got the member list so do share here, which can be helpful to touch eachother.

    Roger, Roger!

    I just skimmed through the discussion for the meeting.

    Unfortunately, I have evening shift at work this sat, sun and mon. That means I can only be available in the mornings till 2pm on these days

    Would it be possible for people to meet anytime in the morning/late morning/near noon hours this weekend??

    I plan to attend with Naseem Mughal SB and possibly Mohsin Irkam Bhai too if we can all rendezvous at the decided time and venue. Both can contribute their valuable ideas and sage suggestions.

    It should be a meeting where we can decide, amongst other things, our future coarse of action regarding arranging gatherings so we may be as organized as possible.

    I shall check and update tomorrow here. Anyone is welcome to call/SMS but pl be aware that I do not take calls from unknown numbers unless a prior SMS is sent. And my work hours are weird so I may be busy at any odd time and be unable to answer. For example, Id be at work tonight.

    Best regards

    Salams,

    Updating today....I just checked my month's schedule. Sat the 18th I get free from work around 4pm, Sun the 19th I have to sign in at 9pm.

    Would it make sense to postpone till next weekend?? We can manage an evening meeting then, provided all others are free from commitments.

    Waiting for your thoughts on this......

    It is surely possible with me anytime in the morning/late morning/near noon hours this weekend because Sunday is the only day I usually get free from other commitments,, so atleast no problem with me to reach but lets see what other say...

    It would be great to have a meet with Naseem Mughal SB and Mohsin Irkam Bhai.

    I am with you and totally agreed with your ideas to moving up VWCOP Karachi Chapter as all of us also have the same plans.

    Walaikum Assalam,

    Actually I have got a plan to leave for Cholistan Rally on Friday 17th, so saturday 18th will be difficult for me to join untill i get confirm my plan as not yet confirmed.
    We have been planning to meet before March to arrange an event on March 23rd but unfortunately are unable to come to an agreement on date and place. I intend to be at Cafe Clifton near Seaview on Saturday 18th even if a single person gives me a confirmation.

    I intend to move ahead and plan a VW weekend as done last time at PAF. This time we are not going to repeat the same mistake.

    Regards
    Munawar Jaffrani.

    Munawar Sb,

    Yes, we can meet at Cafe Clifton this Saturday, the 18th of Feb in evening. I get off work at 4pm and can head there. Would try and bring some other V dubbers along too. It would be nice if Nashtrooper is in town to join us, though I wish not that his Cholistan Rally plan fails to materialize.

    We would very soon, inshAllah arrange an official meeting of the active VW members where we may discuss in earnest and detail about our next VW gathering to make it a success.

    For the highway run, I know for a fact that Naseem Mughal Sb would be keen to join as he is quite fond of intercity travel himself!

    Best wishes and warm regards to all.
    If there are no Beetles in heaven, Im not going!!!

    Since we stumbled upon the subject, is there a neat way to install seat belts in a bug? With the usual inertial seat belts, the machine is usually installed at the bottom of the pillar where it is a hindrance for passengers in the back. Non-inertial ones get spread out and tangled all over the place and also gets in the way. So i guess that leaves the lap belt? Where to get those? What about a harness?

    We would very soon, inshAllah arrange an official meeting of the active VW members where we may discuss in earnest and detail about our next VW gathering to make it a success.

    For the highway run, I know for a fact that Naseem Mughal Sb would be keen to join as he is quite fond of intercity travel himself!

    Best wishes and warm regards to all.
    thank you for your update than its final we will meet at Cafe Clifton on Saturday at 5 pm I live a close by your work place and we can both go together.

    Secondly let me check a few options for seat belts I will remove Mehran's belts and try to install them in my 65 bug. I plan to drive with VCCCP to Islamabad and this will be my 1965 bug test run on highway.

    i cant recall any Karachi bug participating in last year's VCCCP rally to Islamabad. this year I intend to participate but not sure if my bug can travel such a long distance.

    Regards
    Mj
