Thinking of going to Fraser Island this year?? Find out what happened on the 2016 trip – see Barb’s report on the Trip Report page!!
Hello to everyone and welcome to the New Year.
As the list of Club Trips is growing I am wanting to know the numbers of interested parties for a “Return To Fraser 2017” Trip this year. The trip last year was a great one and a few of the participants on it made comment that they would love to go back again. The trip will be based around the same schedule as last years but this time we WILL be getting to the Sandy Cape. I am planning for a meeting at Dubbo on Saturday the 11th of November and then head north in convoy the next day. Arrival on the island on Tuesday 14th November and back onto the mainland on the following Monday 20th November, what you do from then is up to you. If you can let me know asap if you are interested so I can start the booking process.
Looking forward to a great year of travels
A reminder that club rules require all members to have completed a basic Proficiency course (or equivalent) to be able to participate in club trips. The final proficiency course conducted by our club for the year is on November 12th. If you have not completed this course make sure you book in soon. See calender for details.
