This is not a discussion thread, only reply to this thread with your prospective 2021 Myswag.org National Meet Venue.  Use THIS thread for General Discussion regarding the 2021 Myswag.org National Meet.

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 the 2021 Myswag.org National Meet will be in either WA, NT, ACT or TAS (as QLD, NSW, SA & VIC 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 2021 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

When nominating a Venue, make sure you do your research and then please copy and paste the following template as a reply to this thread and complete the fields:

Organisers (provide Forum Names):
Time of year:
Venue Name:
Location (including nearest town & state):
Maximum Capacity (give figure as either number of CT's or number of people):
Number of showers available (ie 10 Male & 12 Female etc):
Number of toilets available:
Number of powered and unpowered sites:
What bush camping is available:
What campfires do they permit (ie only in fire pits, only above ground etc):
Do they allow pets (if so, are there any restrictions):
Describe their communal gathering area:
Other miscellaneous information you know about this Venue:
Why do you think this Venue would be the good for the 2021 Myswag.org National Meet:


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 July 2019.  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.

This is not a discussion thread, only reply to this thread with your prospective 2021 Myswag.org National Meet Venue.  Use THIS thread for General Discussion regarding the 2021 Myswag.org National Meet.

or to Weldborough and the nearby iconic Pub in the Paddock @ Pyengana
http://pubinthepaddocktas.com.au/

VKPrado has drive notes already prepared and knows the local area well.

•   heaps of nearby wineries


•   The campground can be quickly accessed, within 1.5 hours travel from the Ferry Terminal at Devonport.

•   September school Holidays in Tasmania are not super busy like January or Easter Holidays. 
        You will have room to move in this (and any other campground on the island) location.  The proposed date
       (middle weekend of eastern big island school holidays) gives additional travelling/holiday times for those
       wanting to have a longer visit to the island.  The September/Oct period usually has pretty settled weather.
