    The announcement at Mount Gambier was for Batemans Bay but after extensive enquiries I was unable to come up with a place that ticked the most important boxes. One main thing that came into play was PRICE. I refuse to expect members to pay $75 per night for a powered site with a minimum of 4 nights - that is just too expensive I am sorry to say (and you can say I am tight if you want but I dont stay on a powered site - I use cabins!)

    So after much consideration the venue is NAROOMA. I found this lovely park called Island View Beach Resort. Their website is www.islandview.com.au and the phone number is 1800 465 432. They have lots of room, are right on the beach and a big choice of accomodation. The only things they dont have are a function room - we will go to the golf club (or similar) like this year and they dont have a jumping pillow but they do have trampolines built into the ground so the kids can still jump around till they are sick. One good thing is their powered sites are less than $50 per night . Another thing I thought was interesting about this park is they have some Olympic Cabins that take a min of 12 and maximum of 18 people. If some of you want to bunk in together as families or friends, this might be a good option. When you do call to book - make sure you tell them you are with the Kombi Club so we can be put together.

    Narooma is 70kms south of Batemans Bay so it wasn't that far away from the original location and I hope everyone understands how hard it is to find a park with enough room for us all - some were disappointed they could not fit us in as they were quite happy to take us, they just did not have enough sites.

    Now we come to the theme for our fun night....

    It will be fancy dress in anything starting with the letters K or C. So get your thinking caps on and make it special.

    So start planning your holidays for next year - Easter is:
    Good Friday 22nd April 2011 to Easter Monday 25th April 2011. You will notice this is Anzac Day - so far SA and VIC get an extra public holiday on Tuesday 26th April so you might want to keep that in mind.

    It looks and sounds wonderful Melissa! (I am especially intrigued my nearby Montague Island, sounds like a place Alice and I will have to visit.) Well done on another great choice. :)

    Of course, Alice and I will be there - we have just 364 days left to pack the kombi! ;)

    Sounds fantastic, thanks Melissa.
    Circumstances have kept me from the last two Bus Stops, I'll have to be at the next one.

    I so love Narooma! :) I would love to bring the boat down. But as my lovely wife does not share the Kombi love, I can't see how I could get away with holidaying on my own at Easter. Still I have a year to work something out, I guess... :umm:
