Important information for the Rock’n’Roll weekend
The weekend is being held at the Batemans Bay Beach Resort, 51 Beach Rd, Bateman’s Bay (turn left at traffic lights in main street and follow out past golf club, resort is on left past Bird Sanctuary). Please register early to save yourself money and make the job easier for us.
Batemans Bay Beach Resort www.beachresort.com.au is an excellent location with lots of camping and cabin accommodation available. We have done a deal with the resort so all NSW Sea Kayak Club members receive a 10% discount on camping and accommodation. I suggest you look up the website to see all the accommodation options available. Be sure to mention when booking you are with the club to receive the 10% discount and if you are camping in a small tent tell them you are sharing a site.
There are some excellent camp kitchens available. We have asked that all members be placed at the southern end of the resort that keeps us all together in a cosy bunch.
We recommend you book early so phone 1800 217533 and tell them you are a club member.
On arrival all members are asked to register at the Fairy Penguin cabin, registration will be available from 5pm to 10 pm on Friday night 23 March and Saturday from 7am.
Please bring your pfd when registering so we can attach your waterproof ID card. The ID card on your pfd is essential to take part in any water activities. There is a $20 security deposit for the ID card which will help you to remember to check out at Rock’n’Roll headquarters before leaving.
We have organized a Saturday night buffet dinner including a seafood entrée and desert for $25 dollars and there will be plenty of food this year. If you wish to participate please mark this on your registration form. Please bring your own plate and cutlery, BYO drinks. Tea and coffee will be available.
Check at the registration office early each morning to see what trips are available and put your name.
