For the interest of anyone visiting HARS on the Sunday and returning to Melbourne afterwards, Fly Corporate has a direct WOL-MEB flight departing at 2.40pm from Wollongong Airport (where HARS is located). The fares are $189.

Hi all - sadly not going to make this. I booked the Marriott in North Sydney for the Friday Saturday and Sunday night at $249 per night. If there is anyone that hasn't booked a hotel and wants to take over my booking please let me know. It's totally refundable so if no one wants it then I'm not out of pocket.

PS This has been okayed by @support.

Not sure whether Gem56 & I still qualify for WP.

We are driving down on Saturday and will join the team for dinner. Sunday we are driving to Canberra but will go via HARS just 'cause we can.

There is a possibility that I will now be arriving on Friday afternoon. If so I will come to Friday drinks and to the Opera House tour on Saturday morning. I'll advise and pay as soon as I can confirm.

Amex has an offer for those that booked the Marriott Circular Quay deal:
Spend AU$500 or more, get AU$100 back 😁.

I have been in contact with HARS today and there are no longer any spots available for the 747 premium tour. The wing walk might be subject to availability. For those that had previously indicated on the signup form, you will have received a conversation message today advising you of next steps regarding this.

We are now 4 weeks away from event start!

Final numbers for activities will be confirmed a week prior to the weekend (in about 3 weeks time). Therefore, if you would like to come but have not indicated this through the form, you only have 3 weeks left to do so.

Additionally, money needs to be transferred before you are confirmed. If your money has not hit the event account before the cut off, you will not have a spot at anything you have indicated attendance of. Those that are confirmed are listed in post #4.

There will be some lucky door prizes on the final day, similar to other events that include a bus.

Looks like I'll be able to make it after all... filled out the form and paid! Hope to see you all at Friday drinks, Saturday dinner and the HARS tour on Sunday. Accommodation will be my own home, but will be departing SYD on DL 40 at 10:25 Mon 21 Oct. ;)
