UPDATED

I have spoken to Big Valley, and there is a minimum of 2 night stay over a weekend, so dates have changed from Friday to Sunday, with everyone arriving on Friday in their own time.

I have updated the above to reflect changes.

Since it now includes Friday it makes it a bit more worthwhile travelling for me.
Put me and Debs in as pretty good maybe's :)
We'll confirm closer to the time.

ANOTHER UPDATE!!

Margaret, from Big Valley Farmstay, has PLACED A HOLD on 10 powered caravan sites for arrival on Friday 12th March 2021 (departing Sun 14th March 2021).

They will only hold these sites for us until 12th December 2020.  If you are definitely attending the trip, you will need to ring Big Valley Farmstay (9757 5020 between 9-5), state you are with Western Patrol Club, staying on the weekend of 12-14 March 2021, and pay a one night deposit on a site. The balance of your stay will be due on 26th February 2021.

If they start running short on sites for that weekend, they will let us know, and we will need to place a deposit down sooner to secure the spots.

SteveNDee deposit is paid!!

If you are coming along, remember to give Margaret a call to pay your one nights deposit by 12th December 2020.

Fido is welcome. We are taking our little pup with us. Margaret has stated, that yes, dogs have to stay on leads all the time around the caravan park as there are free range chooks everywhere, but there is about an acre of fenced in area where dogs are able to run free and stretch their legs off lead.

Hope to see others come with us!
