I might be jumping the gun here, but now that Melbourne is out of lockdown (yay!) I was thinking it's time to start planning our next Gippsland Gathering. To give people time to plan - and staying clear of school holidays and other vv events - I'm thinking March 26-28 (Fri-Sun) at Powlett River Caravan Park - dates negotiable of course. I'm heading to Powlett River next month to try it out. Can't wait!
The first date suits me, I was hoping for others to comment as to whether it is suitable for them. I'll go with the flow! We need to generate more interest. We will have to get more thoughts from others at Bridgewater in Feb'!
Ralph, I think we won't be leaving ourselves enough time if we wait til Bridgewater for feedback.
The last time I asked for input re dates I had equal numbers wanting two different dates and I had to choose between the two. Some of those who specifically requested the dates I chose didn't turn up! And of course there were the last minute cancellations due to the weather... it was bloody stressful lol. I think it's easier to just set a date and be done with it
However, I won't make any decisions until I head to Powlett River next month (9-12 Dec) but I'm leaning towards the dates of 19-21 March Hopefully we'll have some more feedback by then. I'll also post on a couple of Facebook groups.

Well I finally made it to Powlett River for a 4 night stay with a couple of girlfriends (Rob turned up for the last night). We had a wonderful time. It really is a nice old school caravan park with clean amenities and great owners. It was pretty windy - too windy for my awning - so that could be an issue, but I think it was windy everywhere last weekend. I spoke to one of the owners and he suggested I book several sites "to be confirmed" so that we're all together and then everyone can book one of those sites under their name. They don't require a booking deposit. Just pay when you turn up.
So if everyone is ok with it, I'll give them a call and tentatively book 10 sites for March 19-21.
Dogs welcome and don't forget your pushbike for the rail trail!
I have now reserved 10 powered sites for the weekend of 19-21 March. To secure one of these sites please contact Carol or Rob at the caravan park and ask that one of the sites be reserved in your name. Mention me (Lisa Blanco) when you book.
