Short term changes - vwJim

Post by vwJim » Sun Apr 02, 2017 9:57 pm

Evening,

After spending much of this weekend in hospital, resulting in an operation today, I'll have to be forced to only take on lite duties for a few weeks.

Nothing serious long term, mail orders will carry on as normal. I think I've made contact with all directly effected customers that were dropping off their vans this week coming. Thanks for your patience.

I'll be contacting those bookings further up the calendar later this week after I'm discharged.

Hopefully see you all at Vic Fm / Stanford Hall.

Jim

Thanks G,

Though at the time on Friday it was fairly horrible, but there's some folks going through far worse..., On the plus note, I made it to 45 before needing to be in the back of an ambulance.

Bad news Jim but good to hear you're on the mend, you're bloody miles away from me but if I can be of any help to get Jen's bus back on the road so you can make VF let me know.

Maybe we should just trailer it there, and have an impromptu tech weekender....

Thanks for the offer.

Yeah, bit of a shock, but nothing major. Far worse things going on in the world than this little thing.
