Post by: Vettech on November 09, 2018, 04:45:59 PM
Well went over towards Rosenthal Park, tried the Western Syd Park, good set up inludes Toilet etc, bigger shelters etc, but closing 8pm.

Went farther up towards the lights at Rosenthal, but turned left into new Estate, nice new setup there with everything but no Toilet.

Work being done at Rosenthal, bbq and shed is a pig stye.

Anyone else know a good spot.

Come on members - there must be a place near you.

We may have to bite the bullet, and go to Western Syd park at Elizabeth drive on a Thursday,

The restaurant is open till 10pmish, we could work a deal with them.

Any thoughts !?!?!?!!!!???!?!?!!!?!

Last time I was there was a Club Xmas party in 2008 and we were suddenly literally overrun with and squashed into a corner by -- how shall I put it -- dozens of persons of middle eastern appearance.  But that was a Sunday.

OK Jeff.

After our discussion, I googled  Curry Reserve at Elderslie.

Good large ground, parking close, good facilities and includes the disabled toilet.

S/S BBQ's, water, good large shelters, c/w lights.

Took me 30 ~ 35 minutes in traffic (4-5pm.)

I think this one could be a good place to start.

One hour each way for me (assuming no traffic jams) and $30 in tolls.

Try that location out.

Done deal - if gtc says go ahead, then its full speed ahead.

I would imagine, on the first night there will be plenty to go around.

Members from  the Penrith area can use The Northern Road.

I used to go down to Thiroul Beach BBQ's, so they can come up easy enough.

Ok!..
