hopefully by xmas 2013  the main house will be done in bali and we can all go there, its a bit out of the of the way and quite, no night life, but we can make our own night life, right girls  ;D

payment............... all of the  duty free alcohol remain with me at the end of your stay  ;D

Yay that sounds great fundj :)

You guys are going to have so much fun. Would be so good to go. If I get this job then maybe I could come along too.
What would be the cut off time to let you know.  I guess you will need to know numbers by a certain date to accommodate everyone.

CP where were you thinking in the Margaret River?   We're you thinking of meeting in Perth and all travelling together  or planning to meet at venue in the  River region. Reason I ask is I may need an extra day to fly there. Probably will anyway due to flight times from Cairns.

I child-proofed my house, but they still get in!

Gretch probably somewhere like Gracetown, as depending on numbers and bedding configuration we will need houses that are close to each other.  Had a really fab house in Busselton in mind that sleeps 17 people (6 bedrooms/3 bathrooms) and has top facilities and absolute beach frontage, however don't think that it will be suitable with all the snorers  :D Have nothing that is close walking distance from it either, so thats why I was thinking Gracetown - which is probably more central for eg. a winery bus tour

Even though I have been to Perth several times I have never  explored the Margaret River area so all good to me. I know this is a lot of work for you to organise for us  so I am happy whatever or wherever you choose .

I'm willing to drive others down to Margaret River or Gracetown. I have a 4 x 4 so if you want to bring heaps of booze back I can fit it in.
It's all so very exciting.  :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*to CP.

Wow Faffa a normal car would feel real weird. I love my 7 seater and it feels strange sitting in just a normal car after so many years driving larger vehicles. We started with a Nissan patrol, then a Mazda mpv, now we have a Kia carnival. DH has a land cruiser 8 seater.

I'ld like to book a seat too please and of course pay for petrol. Maybe Gert and I could co-ordinate our flight times to meet at Perth airport around the same time. I would be leaving from Sydney as I don't think Williamstown has flights to WA yet.
