So the first prize is a 3030 this year - Not a 5000 ?

Shouldn't affect numbers ?

Hoping to get there again - Good place for a catch up

 -  Who is going this year ?

Just booked nearby at Inglewood. 20 minute drive to Wedderburn. No where else available nearby, Charlton which is 20 minute drive is all booked out that long weekend. In Wedderburn, people are on a waiting list for any cancellations at Pioneer, I doubt it though anyone will cancel as they have paid up front for their accomodation.

Anyone else interested in still going and looking for self contained apartments, cabin, motel. nearby???

Well I can tell you that to my supprise that Inglewood Motel and Caravan Park has plenty rooms still available as double rooms for couples at a reasonable fair price. Not for to long though as I spoke to the Manager and have got her to let Wedderburn Pioneer Caravan Park to refer any new people looking to book for the Token hunt.

Get in there quick as they wont last.

Hope to meet a few this year and give the token hunt a go.

Regards Sid

Plenty of room at the Wedderburn token hunt site. Food available and toilets.  I would be surprised if no sites at the van park, probably just no onsite accom.
