Costs are typically around $ 80 for a bed, dinner and breakfast and around $ 60 for Camping, dinner and breakfast. Once we have exact numbers I will confirm these figures
I will arrange the accommodation. Uncle Bob’s facility can only cater for 11 beds and 5 campers as the communal areas for eating and socialising can only handle this number.
We would have our bags carried for approx $ 15 each way depending on numbers, by ‘Out there Cycling’
And I will take up cases of beer and arrange pre dinner nibbles at cost. They have 3 varieties of wine on site for sale as they have a cellar door liquor licence.
They have a swimming pool there but it’ll be dam cold in the water.
Once final costs are confirmed, the money will be required 10 days before the event. I will collect the funds and pay Uncle Bobs and Out there Cycling 7 days prior to the event.
