I've been thinking the same thing. Perhaps we'll just have to assemble the troops in Perth, and be there is spirit. . . .
I'd like to consider myself a Bronze... but like others, I dunno if any of us Sandgropers will be allowed back in if we leave.
We might need to have a satellite PER wine&dine after all... AFF 14.1

For those looking for somewhere cheaper to stay, Rydges have a Flash Sale at present (ends tonight).

Queen room, fully flexible @ $101 per night. No frills: breakfast, parking, etc., extra. (Rydges Capitol Hill)
Thanks @Jacques Vert, I've just booked this for the Saturday night. I got a rate of $106 for the night, but that's still good value. This hotel is within walking distance of the Kingston Hotel, where the Saturday night dinner will be held.

Did you join their loyalty program? Members get a lower price and it's free to join. That may be the difference. You could always rebook at the lower price and cancel the expensive room;)

Is that the Kingston Hotel where a bloke was killed in a fight a couple of weeks ago ?

I did join. It would have been $118 without the member discount. ;)

Yes. However, that is definitely not a regular occurrence and I believe it was well managed by the staff there. It's a popular hotel that's often frequented by politicians.

I've also booked the Rydges for Friday and Saturday @106pn. But being from PER, I'm not sure if that upgrades me to Plat or if I'm still Bronze... Gold maybe?

Hmmm; Still showing $101 when I look.

I may have worked it out: my online account is still showing my status as Black, even though I haven't requalified to that level for at least 3 years. (As you know, Black members get an extra 5% discount.)

That would do it!

I don't have any PRG status as I just joined this morning! ;)

I have just booked. In on Friday and out Sunday. I will be bringing a car, and a designated driver - although he doesn't know it yet! ;)

Flight JT001 is now showing F0 J2.

Whoops...was going to give away 2 x $50 Qantas Hotel vouchers until I read the fine print..."The voucher must be used to make a booking before 30/06/2020 otherwise it will be forfeited." I will need serious AFF re-education once this is all over :confused: Current Status of Platinum down to COVID :eek: Oh well, back to learning all about Motorhomes...
