Details to be confirmed, thinking either Tennant Creek or Three Ways for anyone who is interested.

I'm interested. I've heard less than flattering comments wrt to staff attitude at 3 ways.
TC may provide more options. But either location is good for a longish ride.

I quite like Outback Caravan Park in Tennant Creek, been stopping in there for years.

I could possibly be interested in doing this so I can start to get some IBA or even far rider (if we can get a sanctioned event) .

Would be best to organize this for a little later in the season so it is a little cooler.

Paul,
Check the dates. At this stage I've pencilled it in for October, same time as we did Renner Springs last year.

Spanner The only problem with later in the season is you are running into cyclone season and from Tennant Creek and further north it starts to get into the high thirties low forties temperature wise making october the best timing wise. That suits me I,ll con the boss into doing some work for me.

I didn't check the dates when I posted.   :fp  I was thinking it was being organized for the next month.
I now know it is later in the season ...... October!  :runyay

It's possible. When I stopped at 3 ways last time it all seemed ok, did not try the accommodation side of things.

May go then back to Victoria to Airey's inlet for East #36 (and visit mum near by) then East #37 in NSW/Qld (where ever that might be, have to check)  Distance before mid November is good.

That is assuming all going ok on the family front.

Last time we only had members from Territories (ACT and NT). I suppose we could allow members from States to attend   :think1   :beer

I think if we pencil in a regular event around this time, with a known location, it could become one of the marque events of Ozstoc. And if anyone wants to do IBA rides, what better place than the NT to shorten the hours needed.

Closer to the event we can see what the ride plans are. Coming in from further North has some appeal to me.

Saaz stop reading my mind.

3034km from my place to T.Creek (SS3000kms in 48hrs, via NSW, Vic, SA, NT and home NT, QLD, NSW)

Now to get something worked out (current wife said "just do it, you know you want too", I love the med's she's on)

I won't know till nearer the date if I'm going.
At my age " getting lucky" is remembering what I came in the room for ;)

maybe even a chance to convince ppl for a national rally in the red centre before the end of the century. Be central for everyone then.

Great idea John. I'm sure having the states attend won't detract too much from our Territory overnighter o:)
In all seriousness, I'd love it if we could make this a regular event    :beer

Well now I'm not doing the Sthn Cross Poker Run this year I could be tempted to take a few days and ride to Tennant Creek for the weekend. I'll have to swap my leave around.

Hi all,

Confirming location of the overnighter as Outback Caravan Park, Tennant Creek.

http://www.travelnt.com/en/tennant-creek-and-barkly-region/accommodation/outback-caravan-park

I will have information in the next couple of days regarding price and availability of accommodation.  There is also a regular bush BBQ at the park, or shuttle bus to the RSL.  I will post information on both, then we can decide which is the better option.

Attending so far (from posts above):

NTRebel
saaz
Lionel
STroppy

Maybes:

Abe

spanner

This should be a great weekend.  Awesome opportunity for southerners to log up some IBA rides if anyone is interested.  Only a measly 2000km return for us, so no IBA this time...

The more the merrier, so come on, you know you want to..... ;-*

Just spoke to Jan at the park, much friendlier than the young girl I spoke to yesterday.  I've booked by cabin, one of the standards for me and Nae.

They don't do the onsite bbqs any more, but there is a free shuttle bus to the Memo Club for dinner, or we can just do our own bbq.  What do people think? 

Cheers

My preference is for our own BBQ as it is more fun.
