Last wintersun down at coolangatta,Iam heading down on Wednesday ...Rod.
going for a day or two
Last? Is it moving - what's up?
Drop down to Goodwin park and say hello....
Next year is at Port Macquarie.I heard that there is still going to be something put on at Cooloongatta under a different name.
Port Macquarie is a great town and could be well suited to a Wintersun style of event.I think the operators of the run just got sick of the lack of support from businesses,but they were still willing to take the entrants and spectators money(the businesses that is)
Lets hope the accommodation operators don't get as greedy as the Coolangatta ones.I think we pay around $1300 for 6 days(with a contribution from friends who stay).When we complained the managers comment was "well this is a peak period"Well wtf!!! Who made it a peak period???
Thats three h.a.m.b. members going must be more.....
Im not 100% yet . I want to head to the Winternats on one of the days , not sure which yet .
