    I confirmed my booking, & let them know there will be lots of Kombi's continuing to come with or without the festival.

    We are shattered that this event is not going ahead in it's usual form but discussing if we will still make the 2000 klm round trip.

    I just received an email back from Wendy at Lanis after advising I am still camping for the week in October, she was happy to hear that and is hoping they don't have restrictions on numbers they can have.

    Posted in media up here about the cancellation of this years event, from Mr Searle the organizer, the entire Mid North coast are discussing it on FB, everyone is going to miss it.

    I'm still at least looking forward to catching up with the regular KC family who are still going camping.;);):):)

    I had a call from the accomodation owners in Old Bar, asking me if I knew the beach festival had been cancelled, and would I still be coming?

    I said yes, I was aware, and also yes, I will still be coming, as long as there are no travel restrictions put back into place by then.

    Things are looking shaky again for us making this trip. Our border is currently closed and if they do open in time I will be keeping a close eye on the number of COVID cases in NSW before making the decision to attend.
    We desperately need a good old Kombi get together, we have missed so much but I need to be careful as I am the only visitor my Mum gets in her Aged Care Facility. QLD at present is doing so well but we all know how quickly that can change.....so fingers crossed.....again.

    We got a call from the manager at Surf Side retreat (which is now Finns) saying that due to Covid regulations the room that we had booked would no longer be able to sleep the five of us. Bit of a bummer but we have had to cancel.
    We’re trying to find somewhere else to stay but everywhere’s pretty booked out. Really disappointing :(

    That really sucks! Aren’t you five from the same household, and therefore it should not apply? o_O

    I can understand the distancing laws for a group of 5 get together share accomodation...... but surely not from a family in the same household. :confused:

    I’m wondering if the manager has not fully understood the health directives.o_O

    Def worth questioning @prone, and soon as, before they hire that room out to others, because I don’t believe they are correct.

    The manager Kate said that they have been renovating the property and have chosen to reduce the number of beds in our room due to the possibility of having people from different families stay in the room in the future.

    We have three kids aged 15,13 and 8 and there is now only a double bed and a single bed in the room whereas before there was a queen bed, set of bunk beds and a trundle bed.

    Hopefully we get lucky and find somewhere else to stay :)

    A bit poor from management, to accept and take bookings, to then change the format of their accommodation, before honoring their existing bookings. o_O

    If you are going to make changes like that, wouldn’t you stop taking bookings for the old format, and then do the changes after you have finished with the existing bookings? :confused:

    Glad you have found elsewhere, and can still attend Old Bar! :)

    I agree that it was pretty poor form by them.

    I’m just happy that we found somewhere else to stay. Most places were completely booked out so we got lucky. The new accommodation is almost double the price of Finns but I really didn’t want to miss out on coming up. Really looking forward to getting away for a few days :)
