Following overwhelming interest from ACC members the venue capacity for powered sites is nearly exhausted.

A check of the venue is planned at the end of the month, to determine if additional powered sites can be released.  

Whatever the outcome, there will still be plenty of unpowered sites available. 

This means that registrations from today have the following options

  1. Register and pay for a powered site if you prefer one. However, if sites are limited, it will be a first-registered first -come basis! 
  2. If we are not able to accommodate additional powered sites, you will be contacted to ascertain if you wish to receive a refund of the entire muster registration, or whether you will accept an unpowered site, and have the difference refunded. 

Additional local powered options if available are being investigated and further updates will be provided as and when available.

Bushfire Response

There is no need to elaborate on Australia’s recent horrific bushfires, the intensity of which has never been recorded in this scale before. Likewise we need not dwell now on the tragic loss of life and property that has resulted.

Prompt to respond to the East Gippsland outbreaks was Gwen and Derek Hale, hosts of their Farm Stay at Sale where an open invitation was issued to any ACC member to seek refuge at their farm. Several did avail themselves of this opportunity as township evacuation notices were issued.

Surrounded by dense smoke haze are these ACC members at Hale’s Farm Stay, 6/1/2020. (Picture by Derek Hale.)
While grateful thanks is extended to Gwen and Derek for their hospitality, two things stand out from their ready willingness to offer refuge at their farm. First it points out that Farm Stays can respond quickly to any disaster that could arise; and second, the advantage of being an ACC member to have such a facility available. It also points out a ready trust between hosts and guests engendered by ACC membership.
