Narrapumelap House Tour

Hi to all members.Somehow I overlooked the deadline, for G Torque, and thus didn’t put this ad, for my tour to Narrapumelap House, in.The tour is now re-scheduled for the Sunday 3rd� April.I know many of you booked last time and we were all sorely disappointed that it had to be cancelled, due to Covid.Bookings are now open, and confirmation of your booking will be when we have received your payment, which must be received by Friday 26th March. Unfortunately Late bookings cannot be accepted, since we need to confirm numbers and pay in advance.Full details will be forwarded to confirmed attendees, via email prior to the day.When booking please try and do it by email, as it makes my record keeping somewhat easier, and gives me a return address, for future notifications.ThanksHerb
Forms can be found via the club calendar
