It's that time again Folks!

Deciding the Myswag.org National Meet Venue is one of the many obstacles of having a Forum which has Members dotted all over our great continent.  It is however our intention that over the coming years everyone will have a very real chance at getting to a Myswag.org National Meet at some point. 

Ideally (but not essentially) the 2024 Myswag.org National Meet will be in either WA, NT or ACT (as QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and TAS have had at least one go) however, as previously stipulated, a venue is not to be nominated unless at least three Myswag Members in reasonably close proximity to the nominated venue are happy to put their hand up and assist with organisation.

Exact dates will be determined once the location is decided. School holidays and best season to visit in will be taken into consideration.

The rules for nominating a prospective venue for the 2024 Myswag.org National Meet are as follows:
1.     Don't nominate it unless you and at least two other Myswag Members    are happy to assume responsibility for organising a Meet there.
2.     Please don't nominate a location, please nominate a venue. For example, instead of   
        nominating "Grafton area", nominate "Nymboida Canoe Centre, Nymboida".
3.     Nominate a time of year ie Summer, Autumn, Winter or Spring (when will your Venue be most enjoyable).
4.     The venue must meet the following criteria:
     *Capacity to cope with at least 150 people (or more if the Venue is a central location) 
     *Ample ablution facilities
     *Both powered and unpowered sites
     *Both bush camping and site camping availability
     *Permit camp fires
     *Have a central area for communal gathering

As Venue nominations are received - it will be determined whether or not they infact meet the criteria.  If they do, they will be added to the list of options.  If they don't, they won't. 

The cut off date for Venue Nominations is 31st March 2023.  We'd like to give people plenty of time to save and plan their trip and therefore have a red hot chance of attending a Myswag.org National Meet.
