Sorry guys, been away for one week and there are so many new threads and posts to read plus ton of emails.

Can someone find where the original thread for Ozchamp accommodation? :oops:

Who is in and who is out?

Sat: Trung, Jono, ????????
Sun: Trung, Jono, ????????

Don't think there was a separate thread, it was a few pages back in the Champs thread.

Saturday Night
100% Trung, Jono
Maybe: Jarro, Tezza, Iain, BrisVegas, Eag's, AndyP

Sunday Night
100% Trung, Jono

If Terry's is no longer a maybe, then neither is mine, as he is my lift. Vegas is in the same boat.

My preference is to stay down there the night before though, if it is $40 each or less.

Trung

Thanks AP.

Jono

Both Trung and I are flying Jetstar. $79 return was too good to refuse.

Until we have a good idea of the numbers, we can't book the accomodation yet. So come on guys and decide! :lol: I suppose worst comes to worst, we can crash G69's place whilst he's away ... :twisted:

don't think i'm going to be staying the saturday night guys. I'm working until 7pm and doubt that i'd be in any state to drive down there straight from work.

I'll be up before dawn to head down. I'll meet you all at the course 8)

Thanks for the offer, and if I lived on your side of town, that would be great. But Tez, Andy and me are all Westies, so it makes sense to car pool. Eag's might be looking for a ride though...

Hope the Sydney boys are keeping track of all this, they're booking the hotel after all !! :? :wink:

Just because Iain has a split personality doesn't mean we have 5. There's still only four of us in the ute.

Jono
21st October 2004, 10:36 PM
Time to get organised, boys. Since nobody is stepping up for the job, I'll go ahead and book at the following place.

http://www.wotif.com/City-Lights-Motel.html

Unless there are strong objections, I'll go with the City Lights Motel. It seems to have most creature comforts we need.

At last count, we had

Saturday Night
100% Trung, Jono, Tezza, Iain, BrisVegas, AndyP, choppa, Eag's
Maybe: Jarro

Sunday Night
100% Trung, Jono

Now, it says the maximum occupancy in the Deluxe room is 4, but then goes on to say that the bed configuration is 1 Double and 1 Single beds, or 1 Queen and 1 Single. How you can fit 4 blokes into those bed configurations is beyond me. (I just had the mental image of Briz, Tezza, and AndyP sleeping on a Queen size bed ... ain't pretty ... :lol: )

If we have 8 people for Saturday night, then it will be $75 + $20 = $95 for 4 people. So that works out about $24 each (2 rooms for 8 people). If we have 9 people (when Jarro decides), then we'll make it 3 rooms. $75 + $10 = $85 for 3 people. So that's approx $28.50 each.

Let me know ASAP if this suits, and I'll make the bookings.

.. go ahead and book for 8 people mate, i doubt whether i'll be able to get there Saturday night.

I am going to make the bookings tonight around 7pm. As it stands, it looks like 2 rooms for Sat, and 1 room for Sun.

If anyone else is interested, please reply to this thread before 7pm tonight.

22nd October 2004, 07:35 AM
Thanks for stepping up and booking all this Jono. There might be one more for the champs and hotel (brooky17 - Jayson). He is very keen, but has to sort out staff today so that he can get away. I'll chase him up and post here again before the day is out.

Are we going to the motel first then to dinner(if at E/lL) or to E/L then down to the motel.

Also not forgeting we have to pick up our southern cousins from the airport.

I think blakey said Emmy Lakes was 20 mins north of Coolangatta, so makes sense to go there first for dinner and drinks etc. I wouldn't mind belting a few pills on the range, as it will be 2 weeks since my last hit by then.. (I doubt I'll be drinking, if you need a designated driver from EL to the hotel.)

As far as when we leave....?? You're the bus driver Tez, so you name the time and I'll be waiting at the curb! 8) :D

22nd October 2004, 09:29 PM
I would prefer NOT to be checking in at the motel at 1030pm, half cut and worrying if 42 balls will be enough for the following day - although Emmy sounds good i would really prefer to sink a few closer to where we are staying so I do not have the driving hassle [and I don't mean on the 1st tee] I was thinking of going down mid arvo perhaps, hit a few range balls - eat something , get shitfaced , vomit, abuse fellow competitors, vomit again, have a nightcap, eat vomit for supper and sleep in own urine - sounds like the plan for me [ bugger forgot to leave room for noisy masturbation !]

No Jarro, sorry to dissapoint you. Its just well known because of the publicity the new brothel laws generated. Besides there are others much closer to home (3 mins drive)

FWIW a freind of mums got a job in a brothel as a receptionist. She said the girls were all hideous and on drugs.

Besides why pay for something thats free that i dont want anyway?

.. now where will you guys be around 9pm Saturday night :?: At Emmy Lakes G.C. .... or some other seedy,low-life joint :?

I'll be trying to get down there after work so let us know roughly where i can start looking for you all.

If everyone is agreeable, should we agree to meet at Emy Lakes?

Trung and I arrive at the airport around 6:30pm. If Eags picks us up, we should be able to get to EL by 7pm. Bit of dinner, few drinks, maybe have a chip and a putt ... We can leave around 10-10:30pm and drive down to the motel.

Once we check in (say 11pm), those who want to can head out again to the local pubs/clubs/etc, and those who want to get an early night can stay at the motel.

Not wrong there mate! It's probably a more sensible idea to go somewhere within walking distance of the hotel, so those that don't wanna have a big night can simply walk back and go to bed. :idea:

I'm easy. Do you know anywhere in particular around that area? Or should be check in early and see what's around?

What about meet at the motel around 7pm?

I believe that the car pool I am in will be checking in around 5 to 5:30p.

I haven't been to the Gold Coast very often, so I have no idea what would be in the local area for drinks and a meal.

Maybe exchanging of phone numbers is the way to go.

Yeah, I think the Terry and choppa car pools are heading out at 3pm or so. We could still pop in to Emmy Lakes to hit a bucket of pills on the way, or find somewhere further south. I'm always keen to go to a driving range. 8)
I have no idea what pubs/restaurants are around, so hopefully blakey or golfer69 will be able to recommend something. :? If we have a place sorted, then Jono, Eags and Trung can meet us there.... Oh, I suppose we could tell jarro as well.... :wink:

I think 3 to a room will be a more comfortable arrangement and if the numbers are odd and left with a 2.Nudgee and are willing to pay the extra for that room.

I don't know about you guys ut you can't put a price on a good night sleep :smt015

AndyP

I don't think there is an issue with getting an extra room, Tez. If you haven't already booked it, then do so. :smt045

Jono
26th October 2004, 07:26 PM
Just rang the motel to find out that Terry has already booked another room. It's going to be the same rate as the Wotif rate. ie. $75 per room for 2 people and $10 per extra person on top of that. So, if three people stay in a room, that will be about $30 per person.

So far, we have 12 people. If both Drunken and Jarro turn up, that will be 13. I need to let the motel manager know by Friday if there are going to be more than 12.

As someone already suggested, we should exchange mobile numbers. Can everyone sharing accomodation on Saturday PM me their mobile numbers and I'll PM the consolidated list to everyone. That way, no one will get lost ... :wink:

Man, I am looking forward to this weekend. My golf is pretty ordinary, but it should be fun. I hear Nudgee is just striping it at the moment. Thought of Nudgee hitting it straight ... scary ... :shock: :lol: We may as well play for second place. :roll:

With so many of us staying down at the Tweed - it would seem the best idea to me would be to stay pretty local [walking / staggering distance ] from the motel - I'm sure we can find plenty to drink around there [oh and there probably is food somewhere nearby for those who like solids].

I guess it all boils down to,if there are 4 guys that want to share one room or 4 guys that are willing to pay the extra to have two, 2's and then three, 3's.

If it is the later, Nudgee and I will be willing to pay the extra...so if there is another 2 willing, I don't see why not.

The fifth room has been booked.

They had a large family room cancellation so we got that and seeing as I rang and are one of the larger guys going, I got my name on this one.

The guy also said that the South Tweed bowls club is 5 minutes walk away with a great Bistro and all the trimmings.

5hr 15min from end of 1st tee time to start of second at a minimum. I would hope the rounds get finished in around 4hr 30min, considering we are using carts.

Some might have longer lunch breaks than others, considering the second round is a seeded draw.
