Thought an update was on the cards, let you all know where we are upto with the plans. It will hopefully give you all a chance to get your head around what is happening at the Bullara Ladies Campout. This is the plan so far, but it is now way set in concrete!!
FRIDAY – arrive anytime after 3pm and settle into your accommodation. The afternoon is free to do whatever you like. There are no scheduled events for Friday night, so BYO dinner and join everyone else for a few drinks and dinner in the Shearers Lodge in the center of the camp grounds. This will be our base for the weekend. Note: you can stay Friday night or arrive Saturday morning, whatever works for you.
SATURDAY MORNING – Continental Breakfast is at 8.30am – 9.30am. At 9.30 we have a ‘meet and greet’ and explain the activities of the day. If you are arriving on the Saturday, it would be really great if everyone could be here at 9.30am at the latest (ideally!). 10.30am is morning tea, with Edwina (Bullara Station Stay owner) giving us a scone making demo in the Shearers Lodge. At 11ish, Barbara will be giving a paper craft workshop, showing us how to make some great Christmas decorations on the cheap. At 11.30 the gals from the hospital are going to show us around some basic life saving equipment, and how to use them. This is just a familiarisation and in no way meant to replace a first aid course. Around noon, Liz from the Exmouth Tafe is going to do an ‘art/textile’ workshop. I am still waiting on the details, but she is a very clever woman, so anything could happen!
SATURDAY LUNCH – Darlene from Ningaloo Cookery Studio will be putting on a spread of fresh, healthy, salads and goodies. She is renowned for her salads, so load up on the good stuff!
SATURDAY AFTERNOON – there’s a bit to cram into the afternoon! There is a bit of ‘team work’ to be sorted out (details on the day!!) which should take about an hour. There is also a one hour yoga session, and a treasure hunt with prizes. We will be starting the CWA Memory Wall, so items will be required to add to the frame. Later, much later, in the afternoon, will also be a wine tasting session. Helen will be teaching us on the finer points of some of those grape varieties that none of us have ever heard of!
SATURDAY DINNER – is at 6.30. Darlene from Ningaloo Cookery Studio is again going to wow us with a heap of the good things in life (I am keeping the menu under wraps, as it is so delicious) but I will say that the roast beef is all beautiful Bullara beast, slow roasted to perfection. Drooling…..
The nights activities are also a secret! But let the fun and games begin!!
SUNDAY MORNING – there is an early morning yoga class for those who want to see the sun rise upside down. Breakfast is at 8.30ish and is of the big fryup variety, plus some extra yummy bits . We hope that as many of you as possible are able to hang around until after 9.30 when the Awards and Prizes are handed out. We understand that many of you are travelling from Karratha and beyond, so we will hopefully get through this as swiftly as possible. There is nothing planned for the remainder of the morning as we all wind down and relax. There are great walks to be had, and endless comfy places to lounge and chill out. Lunch is provided, and there are yummy cakes and deliciousness to be had, so hang about if you can.
SUNDAY AFTERNOON – And then it will all be over! You are welcome to stay on for another night should you wish. Please note that this is the last weekend that Bullara Station will be open for guests. Staffing is ‘non existent’ so if you are in accommodation, please leave in a tidy manner.
Well I think that is plenty of information for this week. I will keep you posted. If you have not already purchased your ticket please do so via the link below.
