Amy we are all taking along something small to give everyone. Not expensive. Can be something you have made. There are 30 of us including you. You will also need to bring along a 'bag' for yourself. eg a enviro bag, or pillowcase. Nothing jazzy.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Are we allowed to find out how much this weekend costs if we are interested in future ones?

Sounds like you will all have a ball, looking forward to seeing photos.

I honestly can't remember but no reason why not to know for the future. I think it was only a few hundred for the two nights Including  a food package that CP is putting together . Just the essentials for breakfast and a dinner.  We are all sharing various priced houses so each one is paying  something more or less.  Some had to add airfare and of course driving costs for the locals. Some are adding a night or two at hotels and some are staying with friends or rellies  before and or after. Basically it is costing not a lot.  More than $200 and less than $300 maybe for the Margaret River bit.

I'm sure there will be room in someone's car rainbow so don't worry too much about it.  Cookie will organise it for you.

Anyone got a packrack on top of their car  ;)
