Based on feedback from last year (and the survey prior to last year’s plan), we will be returning to Avoca for our overnight accomodation and beach time. Full details and ongoing communications are best viewed on the facebook group event:

For those that are new to the club, this is a fun weekend away for financial members only – heading up to the Central Coast on a Friday night, participating in two 90 minute training sessions at the Gosford outdoor 50m pool on Saturday and Sunday morning (coached by our fabulous visiting coach from Canberra – Kevin Porter) as well as fitting in an ocean swim or two from the beach. We carpool where we can and taking the train to Gosford is also an option if you can’t make your carpool departure time:).

We would like to complete our housing reservations as soon as possible and to do this we need your commitment as some of the options have non-refundable deposits due. The prices do vary a bit and we will do our best to even it out for everyone. All properties are within pretty easy walking distance of each other and one property (with a premium price) has a front yard that walks onto the beach… where we will be holding the Saturday night BBQ. Since all of the accomodations require a 2 night minimum, there will not be an option to pay for Saturday night only. Your reservation will include Friday and Saturday night regardless of your arrival time.
For all housing, we will also do our best to balance out couples and singles – placing singles in their own beds (where there are bunk beds, there will only be one person allotted to a bunkbed) and we will also keep shared singles rooms to male/female only for your comfort.

If you plan to attend, can you please fill in the form below with your preference for regular pricing vs premium pricing (know that the premium pricing house is also where the BBQ will be held and your bathrooms may be shared by the whole team on Saturday and during the BBQ).

We are looking for a BBQ coordinator on Saturday night (organising groceries (budget provided), cooking, clean-up – volunteers are requested on the reservation for your BBQ crew). Please email Christina ( if you are happy to volunteer to be the coordinator.
