No I haven't fallen off the face of the earth , and yes Shellharbour is on again this year . Dates are Wednesday 19th October to Wdenesday 26th October , some stay the full week and some stay which days they can.
All the sites , plus a lot more are held for us and we don't need to pay deposits yet , it's all good. If anyone would like to change their site number from last year could you let me know so I can do the shuffle.
The camp kitchen is finished and looks good , the park has said they would like to supply breakfast for us all one morning , they enjoy us being there and are really great park managers.
Fran and Garry , I enquired about the little beach shacks for your friend, no names mentioned, they are $120 per night and use the camp kitchen and amenities block.
I will be in touch with everyone either by phone or pm to confirm who is attending this year.
It's a bit lucky we are a week earlier this year , this means those who are planning on going to Rathmines can do both ?.

We now have 24 vans coming to Shellharbour , with a few more to be confirmed. I sent a list through to the caravan park today with names and site numbers, so you can now phone on 4295 1123 to pay your deposit.

Thanks Lord and Lady Shagnasty, I spoke to Julie at the park today and it sounds like nearly everyone has paid their deposits, if you haven't paid as yet could you please do so asap. Once all payments are made I can then let them know which sites we won't be needing , this allows them to fill them .
Fibreglass fantasia!....a Sunliner, a Carlight Continental plus one for spares (fibreglass roof & ends)... 52 homemade plywood and a Fibreglass Kennedy lookalike awaiting a brand/name (might be Skyline?) ................. EH Premier S/Wagon & '56 FORD Country Sedan for my towcars

Oops , just found out I put the wrong name of the club down , it should have read Oak Flats Bowling Club , not Oak Park . must have been reliving my Cronulla days . Have only heard that a couple of people are interested at this stage , so won't make a booking until we get there and get some numbers in .

Well young Mother Hubbard your chickens will all be coming in to roost shortly, I see you have good weather booked for the weekend. As Rattcliffe and myself will be traveling down Thursday and relaxing Friday before Pamela whom gives advice to God arrives could you also make those days pleasant too please. Very much looking forward to you having the pleasure of our company.
G'day Shellharbour attendants, Weather this weekend in the Shellharbour region has been clear and sunny, with the usual October stiff nor'easter wind blowing yesterday and today. Bring extra annexe ropes with you in case you get the same weather next weekend.
The following information may be of interest to people...
Roads and Traffic: 1) Bulli Pass - the Pass is closed for major work until early December. All traffic has to use the Mt Ousley road, or the old coast road from Stanwell Park to the bottom of Bulli Pass (this is the road with the iconic "Seacliff Bridge" on it). Avoid the coast road or you'll likely take "forever" to go the distance. 2) Windang Bridge - major work being done between 4am and 3pm each workday. Lanes are reduced from 4 to 2 during this time period, so take care with your wide caravan. 40kph speed limit applies.

Free. Concert is in honour of United Nations Day (24th). Wide variety of music supporting an increased awareness of the situation of refugees internationally and within Australia. Hindmarsh Park in the big park opposite the main strip of shops in Terralong St., Kiama. A great place to spend a lazy afternoon. 4) Tongarra Spring Fair - 234 Calderwood Road, Calderwood (or your GPS might recognise Albion Park - about 16kms west of you). 3pm-7pm.
