After a lot of procrastination and discussion with others we have decided to hold a COG in the early part of this year and I have confirmed with Narelle at the Alstonville Showgrounds that the weekend of 1/2 May is available so have locked it in.

Naturally some days either side of the weekend is included.

Due to Covid we do not know what the future holds this year with our borders however even if only a small number can attend that would be great.

Narelle has asked that everyone book direct with her on  0427 771 512 so that the Showgrounds know who is coming on what days.

So there it is, our first COG for sometime.

Book it in.

Sorry everyone but the way they close the borders overnight we will not risk it for a while yet.
Alstonville back to the SA/NSW border is 1500ks for us. At least a 2 day tow with the van and we don't want to cop a 14 day quarantine.

Yep, we are all dependent on the pandemic situation.  We are coming out of lockdown up here again.

For those not aware, Bob and Narelle are no longer the caretakers at Alstonville.

This morning I spoke to Val, the new caretaker to confirm our booking.

She assures me that everything will be the same.  We will camp in the same area and are ok for all our usual activities including camp fire.

Please be aware however that a film group is making a movie at Alstonville and they will be taking over a large area of the grounds which limits the availability of sites available for camping.

We currently have 12 sites confirmed for our use down in the corner where we usually go however they are unable to hold them indefinitely without a confirmed booking.

As such, we need everyone who is going to ring and confirm with the Showgrounds as soon as possible when you you will be arriving and how long you are staying.

Val has the same phone and the number is 0427 771 512.

So please decide and let them know.  Better to have a site than to arrive late and not get in.

Also can you let people who are not regulars on the forum know about this.

Cheers
