Footy Grandfinal long weekend 2017 at Sandy Point Vic

The tide times are awesome for using the main beach this weekend so hopefully the wind gods will be kind and provide the right amount of wind, at the right time and in the right direction.

This event is diferent to previous years so please read on:

You will need to organise your own accomodation there will be no group booking of houses.

You can contact the Sandy Point Caravan park on 9998 4462 or by email sandyphpark at bigpond.com. As of the 15th May they still had some sites. The advantage of this park is that it is straight accross the road from the beach and next to the shop for anything you forgot to bring. It was old but ok when we stayed a few years ago but can be crowded.

Other options are Warratah Bay Caravan Park. As of the 15th May they had a handful of powered sites and plenty of unpowered sites or another caravan park a little further away such as Foster or Toora.

Or get a group together and book your own house - try the local realestate agent or one of the common booking sites.

It is up to you to decide where to stay and arrange it.

There will be a group dinner out in Fish Creek on the Friday night at a venue to be confirmed. If you want to be included in the booking please reply in the Footy Grand Final thread with the number of people to be included in the booking.

Weather permitting there will be a group BBQ on Saturday night at the BBQ's at the back of the community center (accross the road from the caravan park behind the shops and tennis courts).  You will need to bring your own meat, drinks and something to share with everyone for example a salad or dessert. Closer to the date please post up what you are bringing so we don't get too many double ups.

Hope to see you all there.

@nigel & @Kathleen thanks for taking this on, appreciated :good: 
I'll look at possibly slipping a day-trip in there over the weekend, that's just a very small possibility for now.

If you come on the Sat i will bring extra meat for you on the sat night. @.Joel

Foster is a friendly town with a lower cost caravan park. Only down side is the 20 minute drive to Sandy Point. A bit risky after dark with wildlife, including wombats, echidnas, kangaroos and lizards treating the roads as they owned them. This will be our third stay at Foster.

It's getting closer so thought I'd give this thread a bump just in case anyone has missed it or is still thinking about booking their accommodation.
