    Easter 2018 is fast approaching, and this is a heads up.

    The Armidale Motel has made the entire place available for us, which is most very excellent.

    [​IMG]

    10 Queen (sleeps 2, obviously, top and tail or spoon if you are into that)
    $100/night

    1 Twin (sleeps 3, 1 x queen, 1 x single)
    $110/night

    5 Exec (sleeps 3, 1 x queen, 1 x single)
    $120/night

    5 Family - main room and extra bedroom - (sleeps 4 or 5, 1 x queen and 2 or 3 x single)
    $150 or $180/night depending on how many bodies

    These prices include continental breakfast, and cooked breakfast can be had for $15/day/head.

    It would be fantastic if we could book this sucker out, then we don't have to worry about any of those pesky public travellers complaining about the noise!

    The motel is about to be ready for us to ring up and claim our rooms (please no individual bookings, try and rope in others you wish to stay with). Valid credit card is all that is required, ZERO deposit! Full payment on arrival.

    Individual interested parties please post here so you can find yourself a room with a spare bed!

    Friday evening meet and greet BBQ/drinkies on site making use of the motel BBQ area. Cost to be advised.

    That's all I can tell everyone at this stage... So start talking about who is coming, and who is staying with who. I will advise once they are ready to start taking names against rooms.

    I'm afraid I'm square aswell; would be looking at a 13hr+ drive for me not to mention road works.

    Am really looking forward to attending some of these in the future, perhaps a bit closer to home though! Gives me some time to get my Z how I want it anyhow :D

    Have fun everyone ;)

    11 hours total??
    You've got a time of around 8hours to get from rocky to Armidale? It's 7 hours one way from here to Toowomba, using the A5 then veering onto the A2 how are you making such good time and how fast are you going?!

    total of 11 hours even with 7 hrs to Toowomba that gives you 4 hrs to get to armidale , now that road is partial to trucks & cars with flashing red blue lights along with speed zones so I would avoid it. So some sort of insurance is required .
    Rock to Goondiwindi across thru Inverell into Armidale. Cruise in & set in at about 104 kph, no need to go to speed. My 300ZX has a firm suspension but consistency is the key into town refuel while Shar orders, sit down and eat back then on the road. don't have to drive fast just keep the wheels rollin. doing this you should be able to get 9 - 10 Litres per 100km
