2021 Tours & Outings

January

   UPDATE: Batemans Bay/Mogo Zoo

Unfortunately, this outing has been cancelled for the following reasons:

1. The coach company (Australia Wide) are not operating any tours until we have all be immunised.

2. The Motel can only cater for 30 people in their restaurant, due to Covid restrictions.

3. The Zoo can only have 30 people in the Zoo at one time.They are also unable to prepare a lunch for us. Once again Covid restrictions. The Committee also suggested the possibility of getting another Coach and halving the people in each coach, but at $2,700 for two days (Coach Fuel & drivers wages for two days)  I thought it wasa bit much.

Another suggestion that came from the committee was a “Self-Drive” convoy if a group of you would like to get together and arrange a small convoy, a little like going on the Caravan Tours without a caravan. We were booked into the Lincoln Downs Resort at Batemans Bay, Phone No 02 4778 9200.  It is now under new management as from this week. If you do decide to do this you would need to check the availability of the Zoo as well as the Motel.

NO JAB, NO TRAVEL GUEST                                                                                                                                 

February

 

UPDATE:   The President reported following advice at the January General Meeting that the Batemans Bay/Mogo Zoo trip had been cancelled, a suggestion from the Committee’s January & February Meetings was to gauge interest from members in a “self-drive” convoy. Members interested were asked to meet in a designated area of the club during the morning tea break to discuss the suggestion. No further action will be taken.

  • Annual Holiday Lightning Ridge / Moree – Sunday 12th to Saturday 18th September 2021

This a hello and Goodbye.
Finally our annual holiday is in reach - Full payment due in July. The total cost is $1,385pp and single supplement is $360. Normal deposit was $100pp.  

This has been a very disappointing year for the Tourist Industry.  I am sorry we couldn't
get to the Mogo Zoo but I am sure the girls will be able to arrange something for you this year.

Well, all good things come to an end.  It is hinged with a little sadness that I am stepping down
from a position I loved.  I just feel I am getting stale and tired.  I have had two of the best
offsiders that anybody could wish for in Kathy Cowie and Elizabeth Bingham.  We have enjoyed our extra luncheons checking out where we want to go and see if it is suitable for everybody. Elizabeth was our Computer guru printing forms etc and has already helped Carol with lots of forms etc.

I would like to give a big shout out to Anne Haynes for the work and time she puts into booking the Theatre shows. This year has been very stressful for her as a lot of the agents were working from home and let’s give a big hand for Anne.
Thank you everyone for your support.

Cheers Wendy
