Hi all,

There may have been a thread posted for this by my VMR mate Zubzero but I cant find it. Anyway it is a good reminder.
VMR Victoria Point is holding its 13th Boaties Market on 9 March 2008 at Victoria Point State School, Colburn Ave, Victoria Point. Gates open at 6.00am and it is usually all over at Midday leaving time to go fishing with the new gear. This market is continuing to grow in size with over 100 sellers at the last market and a flood of buyers walking out with all sorts of boating and fishing gear. As usual we expect there will be everything from a boat hook to a cruiser for sale. :o
Entry for buyers is a donation and sellers $10.00 for any size of area you need.
The school P & C will cater with a BBQ and drinks of the soft and coffee type.
VMR is also holding a one day raffle with Boat licencing courses, a custom made rod and other gear up for grabs.
See you there :)
Coroboy,
VMR Victoria Point.

Coroboy,

Is there any need to "book" before hand or do I turn up on the day? I've got a boat I'd like to bring up.

Cheers

just turn up & pay at gate. the only thing is they say gates open at 6, i arrived at 1/4 to last time & there was already 4 rows full & some customers had already spent their money & were leaving;D so to get full value ,be early, i was amazed at how many were out early looking for a bargain.....Oh, & if you want a sausage sanga, get in early as they ran out pretty quickly last time:-/
lots of good stuff to be had if you look, & lots of people that will buy any crap if it's cheap enough:o

all things being equal i'll be back, it's a good morning..

Coroboy is there parking at the school or is it out on the street?

Gidday Shagga, parking is on the street for the shoppers but if you end up buying a bit you can drive in and pick up your goods no worrys. Their is better parking in the school car park on the School Rd side of the school as opposed to the Colburn Ave side though.

Dr, yes, theoretically the gates open at 5.30am for the stall holders but half the time it is opened a bit earlier and it gets fairly chokers early. As for the snags, the school does this as part of their fund raising and always tend to run out around the 9-10am mark... gone hungry a few times myself.

Thanks for supporting us and the positive feedback... will see you all bright and early... well early anyway

Cheers Lloyd

Hi all,
Everyone is spot on with their replies. Parking is best on School road entrance but all vehicle traffic into the school will be from the main gates. From the number of phone enquiries all indications are that this boaties market will be as good as or better than usual.
The school P & C may have got the hint from the last market and organised more sausages as that market was the biggest so far.
Sellers can get there before 5.30 to catch the early worms looking for stuff to buy but as usual there will be que of sellers down the road waiting to get vehicles inside the grounds. It is not unsual for some sellers to drive a long way such as from over the boarder.
There is no need to book as we have the whole of the school grounds to use.
Anyway it is an enjoyable Sunday morning rain or shine.
Thanks to all who have read this thread and see you there on the day

G'day Lloyd and Ed.

see you guys Sunday as always. No stall for me this year... just a customer looking for a bargain.... ;D ;D

I'll have to get in early for a snag though, I have missed out twice now. :(

The weather looks good for a market, pretty windy to keep the hordes off the bay. ;D ;)

This year there were 147 stalls, up from 118 last year.

The event just keeps getting bigger with more and more bargains to be had.

Next one is in 19th October.... you will get notification.

This later one will be a good time to stock up on Summer gear , like slugs, spin sticks etc.

I think you might be on about the carpark sale at Northside marine for Sat and Sun. Well worth it they have a tent filled with fishing and boating items at 50% off and some of the plastics were from about $10 down to $3. Even seen a good size fridge / freezer from around $1300 down to i think $675 give or take a few bucks. Bit of sweet talk and you could even do a little better than 50% off if your like me where my wife reckons im water tight (_!_)
They even had a few talks going on.
Any time Northside has a carpark sale its not to be missed.

We arrived before 6, first customers in the western gate!
Ross assures me everything he bought was a bargain ::)
Got in early for the sausage sizzle.... must have been good as we went back for seconds

Ran into thedeckie as we were leaving.

We'll be there again in October :)

Jeez Greg, you weren't looking hard enough. 8-)

Ian ( VMR , on the gate ) is an Ausfisher as was dave ( DR ) who had his stall in the 3rd row behind the sausage sizzle and Graham ( grave41 ) had his stall right next to the tennis courts.

Then again, there could have a hundred Ausfishers there and I wouldn't have known, there are thousands out there ;D ;D :o

see ya Tuesday.

I reckon it's time we got some AUSFISH T'shirts printed up, then it would make it

easier to identify other members at outings like this.

I'd dress my family in them.

Hey Phil.

Did your daughter find you?

Saw a kid with the backpack and as she went past I said " are you looking for Phil"

She replied." yes, Dads always getting lost"

So I pointed out where Id seen you last and away she went.

Wasn't a bad morning at all.

It was a bit of a worry being seen in public with Paul, but people seemed to leave us alone. Mike (Aigusto) seemed to be walking a bit gingerly, but Paul explained he's got something wrong with his bum.

Good to meet up with some other Ausfishers.

Dave, that's a sure sign of old age mate... ::)

Like the old bloke who played golf with his missus. She couldn't see where he hit his ball to so she suggests he play with her brother. He's older than you says the husband, yeah but he's still got 20 20 vision she replies.

Next weekend the husband and bro in law a playing and hubby says did you see where it went. Yep replies the bro in law. well where is it .....

Bro in Law replies ............. I forget ;D


Might catch ya at the Wello on sat mate
