    I am and I probably will have room for one. How are you with enclosed spaces like car boot?

    You wouldn't happen to work at a certain gear shop in Box Hill by any chance???

    Can someone give me more of a run down of telefest?

    I have looked on the websites, but they dont give much away. What would one encounter that they wouldnt get on any other weekend?

    Clinics, heaps of other freeheelers and a bit of a social thing at night.

    Doesn't sound totally wicked but all the ones I have been to are great.

    Well it doesnt entice me to drive from Melbourne for a weekend, thats all.........

    May still come, just thought there would be more on as it is always talked about as being the 'big tele' thing...

    It is A big tele thing not the big tele thing.

    And if you had the chance you would come. Especially from Melbourne, just to see what those over the wall are doing or not doing.

    what's the date(s) for the telefest? I asked in the rollcall thread but it seems to have gone un-noticed.
    I'm keen to go up if I can fit it in with yr 12 and can scab a lift.

    that's so tempting...it's my only free weekend in the last 5 weeks where I'm not working and/or don't have an 18th to go to...Now I just gotta find a lift and convince the olds (odds of both of those things happening....1:83)

    Doesn't look like I'll be going. I can't get out of this fathers day gig. :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:
    I'm so keen for another ski this season aswell.
    Thanks for the offer MBK but it doesn't look like I'm going.
