There has been a huge response to this event, and it is almost full, with 18 couples already booked in with their deposits paid for the accommodation. We have 5 couples from SA, 2 couples from NSW, and the rest from Vic.
In fact there is only one room left at the Corryong Mountain View Motel (we have all the rooms and phone numbers in the previous listing) so any extra folk will have to try the Corryong Country Inn (02 6076 1333) over the road back towards the centre of town a few hundred metres. (The Corryong Hotel Motel (02 6076 1004) booked for the evening meal, is about half way between, and has cheaper ‘basic’ workman type cabins out the back too.).
However at the other o/n venues there are a couple of cabins left that are still reserved for us.
MEALS: All the evening meal venues have been booked as well as a couple of lunch venues, but meal choices will be yours, and pay as you go.
I will ‘cap’ the numbers to about 21- 24 couples, as otherwise we will have too many at the venues and on the road, even though I will split everyone into 3 touring speed groups.
There has been a small modification to the routes that will not affect those coming from NSW. The group has voted to modify the route up, to include the Thornton-Jamieson run, and do the Whitfield-Mansfield run on the way back. I have further details if you need them. All else is the same as listed earlier.
If you do want to make a booking (at all 3 venues) please let me know so I can keep a track of numbers, and for catering purposes etc, and for further contact about updates.
It is all very exciting, and the Second Newsletter with more details for those attending is about to be e-mailed out.
