Hi all

Late Catani campground is booked out all Jan.

There are 2-4 adults in our party and we are looking to be there for Thurs 17 to Sun 20 and Fri 24 - Mon 28th.

PM me if you've booked a site and no longer need it, or have room on your site and are keen to share with some awesome* people.

Thanks

Jackie

I think you'll struggle because parks run bookings in peak period from Saturday to Saturday only, so unless someone booked 2 weeks in a row you won't get the Friday night before a weekend.

If you can move your trip I have space from the 28th to the 3rd of February.

Holy crap when I last looked we only had 8 or so people, now there's 24 for the long weekend? Guess it was a good thing I signed up early, going to be a little cozy in the campsites.

Yeah, happens every year. Still plenty of space from Monday the 28th onwards, including the Friday night of the first weekend in February.

Andrew, any room on the VCC site? I think some friends of mine are in your group over the long weekend. There are only two of us (and we are simply great fun!)

Sorry, no. We have as many people those two nights as parks allows. They patrol it pretty rigorously during peak period too.

If anyone cancels, I'll let you know.

Thanks Andrew, I'll be in touch re long weekend. I have made tentative other plans out Gramps way so will have to check in with the other kids. I'll get back to you asap and hopefully the site is still available.

Thanks!

I read the following excerpt that is relevant to this thread, and to people contemplating camping at Buffalo in prime time, from VCC section of front page today...
18/01/2014 to 27/01/2014 Australia Day Long Weekend
Location: Mount Buffalo
Leader: Andrew Clark
Details: What's that? You forgot that Lake Catani camp sites for the Australia Day Long Weekend (and the week before) sell out by about 10:30 on the 1st of September? Don't worry, we didn't!

So when it's too hot to go climbing in the low lands, come up to the alps with us and spend some time honing your crack climbing skills, your footwork and swimming in the lake on those days you just can't quite find the energy to leave camp.

Keep in mind that our booking starts on Saturday the 18th of January, so you can come up earlier in the week too!

This is an intermediate to advanced level trip. Prepayment for camping is required. Limited places available. Contact Andrew for details and to register your interest.



PS Andrew, re register of interest; I intend attending!

Post edit: Email sent (to the email addy you list on Chocky), as per request below.

Just rechecked, there's a few sites left in week 3 of peak period (11-17 of Jan) and that's it for all of January. It's gone up about 25% this year too...

Could you please drop me an email Rod so I can keep all these things together?
