in all fairness, u dont see many people putting there asses on the line to get us events like this, everyone will get a refund, but still i dont think it will impact the event. Easternats is prob the best event we have in VIC, everyone can have a go and its a lot of fun. I think we will see a big turnout at its new home

dude read what i said, i said EVERYONE WILL GET THERE MONEY BACK, where does it say they wont? he has said TIME and TIME again, everyone WILL be refunded.

So then if its so easy to organise an event like this, why dont we have more? Cos its not easy, its a big risk and a lot of an outlay.

But still we shouldnt let this get in the way of the new event, as long as everyone is refunded like promised, i cant see an issue with supporting the event... Im sure jon is a man of his word!

I'd dare say he doesnt do it just for the love of it, i reckon he would've made some coin in the past. I would've thought after years of running, there would be enough capital in the business to cover the advertisments for the upcoming event.

We're mates Paul, but this is something we are always gonna obviously disagree about lol

Jon is a great guy. He has $420 of my money and won't return it. He's had it for nearly 5 months now. But it's all ok because he's a top bloke and is doing it for the enthusiasts. I think not.

I was entrant 67 so there's atleast another 66 people before me that paid a minimum $220 to enter plus mates passes or garage spots. There's 67 pissed off entrants who most likely won't return to easternats.

It's easy to praise Jon when he doesn't have your money and keeps playing the straight bat of 'In due course' and changes the subject to how exciting the new venue for 2011 will be.

He could be my best mate for all I care, I just want my money back and to stop hearing bull**** stories.

Lol. Wat a mess. I was entrant number 1 so I should get my money back first

Paul makes a good point though, if it was that easy to organise an event like this surely more people would be doing it.

Still want my money back.
$200 = 2500km worth of LPG for cruising

Thats what I dont understand

I dont go to a servo fill up and then go and give them double what it said on the bowser.

If I filled up and didnt pay the cops would be knocking on the door, so why is it different for what hes doing?

Send a message via ICQ to darkstar
Call the ACCC and Consumer Affairs to get your money back for free. If this does not work, you can aways get a VCAT hearing and you will win on the balance of facts, eg: event was not delivered.

Whether Jon is an enthusiast, entrepreneur, stooge or otherwise - the services were not delivered and people have paid for the said services. You are entitled to a refund under statuary legislation. Regardless of the contract of sale, a refund here is a statutory right.

VCAT Link: http://www.vcat.vic.gov.au/CA256DBB0...=Home~&2=~&3=~

Cost: Around $35 or so for a hearing, similar to Judge Judy but more professional. You represent yourself on the day and present the facts to a hearing lawyer/magistrate. Jon or a company representative will be required to attend and give their facts. Excellent chance you will win as this is a contract dispute and the contract was not performed. Jon can claim hardship and so forth, but regardless, you have paid for a service, that was not delivered. Jon and organizers should have done a better job at securing the venue before accepting money. Bob Jane is known for weaseling out of deals on the day to extort more money from event organizers. IT happened with Drift Fest as well as a few other events.
