Thunda Down Under 2 - Dates Confirmed

Postby kopius » Wed Aug 02, 2017 9:09 pm

You can probably guess by the change of this forum that there is a big announcement on the horizon... Well the dates have been confirmed and will be announced at the MARS ATTACKS banquet in just over a week.

If only we knew if Easter was the same date in QLD as VIC.
Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there."
Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it

You betcha! The latest promo was stalled due to talks with CASA, trying to work out what altitude to stick in there ;-)

CAN'T WAIT!

I wonder if it's too early to book these dates for annual leave at work...

Should I ask the Easter Bunny for APCP instead of chocolate that year? Or maybe every year for that matter :)

A little sad here... organised and booked LSL to do the loop with a plan to be at Thunda 2 in September.

2015 was awesome and the family was super excited to go again next year.

Hope the event is as awesome as last time :D

We too are anxious for the next event and with the planning so far, it is going to make 2015 look like child's play! Keep an eye on the website as more information is released. I can tell you though, some of the proposed world records are going to be mind blowing!!
