I'm thinking of coming to my first HU meetiing if everything pans out OK. I havent registered as I'm not sure if I will make it. Can I just "Lobb" up and pay on arrival?

Hi Shane, slight change of plans mate. If you're interested, a couple of us are meeting at the Caltex on the F3 at Wyong - 8:30am and heading north from there. Originaly we were going up the Putty but opted out......rest of the trip is the same.

Cheers,
Joe

Marty, show up and pay on the day is just fine. Just be aware that numbers are closed for the catered Saturday night dinner and Sunday morning breakfast but there are a number of local stores and a facilities for self-catering as well. We have a very full schedule of talks etc, so you are sure to have a good time.

Regards,

Shane

Hi everyone,

Registrations have closed now, but you can still just turn up; be aware that there is a day-only rate of $30.00

Numbers have also closed for catered meals for Saturday night dinner and Sunday morning breakfast. Mind you, above and beyond self-catering, Dayboro has plenty of choices from Eagle Boys to the local pub.

Friday night we were heading off to the football club across the field, but it is the Bowls Club's turn for Friday night meals. Thats about 10-15 minutes walk from the camp grounds but still should be fine.

As of this morning, 117 pre-registrations and quite a few people who are thinking about showing up for a day. Packed schedule too.

See you all there.

Regards,

Shane

Draft schedule

Friday night dinner is at the Bowls CLub, not the football club. About a 10-15 minute walk I guess. Alternatively, there is Eagle Boys Pizza, several restuarants/takeways or self catering

Hi Joe, it would be great to meet and ride up with you guys but im on an Honda XR400 which i think may struggle with highway speeds . Don't want to put the bike under pressure or hold anybody back waiting for me. I'll make my own way up on the back roads and see you all up there. Thanks for the offer mate

Cheers
Shane

Schedule \ Timetable as at 7 June 2012

Hi everyone,

A few small changes to the schedule, with slots for presentations on the Road of Bones with Compass Expeditions, a talk on preserving your IT gear and making it work for you and a presentation from Haydn and Diane Durnell as well.

The schedule is jam-packed and not every presentation will be for everyone. From time to time you may want to miss a presentation to have a chat with a vendor or an old - or new - friend. So if you need to miss a presentation that's AOK, just be sure that when having a chat that you are so close to the door etc to be heard over the presenters.

See you all there.

Regards,

Shane
