Welcome to the Winter Retreat guide for 2012!
When to get there: Arrive after 2.00pm on Friday 22 June.
How to get there: Warwick is 2-2.5 hours drive from Brisbane, along the Cunningham Highway. From Brisbane, get onto the Cunningham Highway, and follow this highway to Warwick. Follow the highway through the town. A short way west of Warwick, turn left onto Leslie Dam Road. Follow this road, it ends at your destination.
Accommodation: The cabins are each divided into four four-person rooms. Each room has its own toilet and shower, and two bunk beds. Cabins will be allocated prior to arrival (a requirement of the venue), but there is room for change. We will try to allocate people who are in a group to the same room. Cabins are unheated, which leads us to our next point.
What to take: Games, of course! However there are a number of other vital items not to forget such as
- warm clothing
toothbrush and toothpaste
soap and shampoo
The venue does not provide any of these so don’t forget them! If you do forget, there are several shops in Warwick and you wouldn’t be the first to drive into town on Saturday for a towel or pillow!
Food: You are unlikely to need any, check the menu. So you don’t miss any meals, you may like to print the menu out and bring a copy with you.
Games: Games are played in one of two halls. The first hall also doubles as a dining room, so tables there will need to be keep clear for people to eat their four square meals on. Drinks are also provided in this hall, but not in the other hall.
A Game of Games: All games played at Winter Retreat will earn Game of Games points for club members. Slips will be provided. It’s a great way of moving up the ranks!
When to leave: Departure is any time after lunch on Sunday 24 June.
