Long-term readers would remember that last year I attended John Kerr’s Christmas Cruise. Well I’m not entirely sure if John is having a Christmas function this year, but I do know that tomorrow he is having a luncheon at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Terrigal, on the New South Wales Central Coast.
I arranged my attendance for this event many weeks ago, and I must have snuck in just in the nick of time as the lunch sold out in two days flat. John has two coaches booked to take people from Sydney to Terrigal and back. At $50 for the coach trip and the lunch, this is extremely good value, and I am looking forward to it immensely.
Here is the information which was faxed to me along with the booking form by the good people at the Crowne Plaza Terrigal.
Unlike last year, I will be staying in Sydney overnight (thanks to Sydney correspondent and Friday Funnies contributor Charity for recommending a hotel) and will not be revealing my itinerary. I will, however, say that I am looking forward to exploring Chatswood on Tuesday morning, hopefully meeting Charity on Wednesday morning, and visiting 2UE at some stage during my journey. I may decide to (once again) visit the Channel Seven News Studios in Martin Place, although I haven’t made up my mind yet.
I’ll be returning to Canberra on Wednesday afternoon, and should have plenty of photos to share.
While I’m away the blog will be in Automation mode, and you can look forward to the return of a regular feature on Wednesday morning. If you think you will have a need to be in contact with me during the time I am away, please email me before 2am Tuesday so that I can email some contact details to you.
