Hi Paul,
Where do you find information about VicSouth?
I've checked the VicSouth site and no updates since last year.
Also have left a few posts on ASSA forum pages in June and then July but no replies.
Also where abouts at Nhill, at the little desert lodge?
Cheers
Andy

Thanks Jen,
Looks like its been updated
I've been checking that site up until a couple of weeks ago.
Still undecided one to go to.
Never been to little desert but saying that, Snake Valley is a great spot and a great bunch of people as well.
Cheers
Andy

VicSouth is a great camp but quite different in character to SVAC due to it's size. You have probably seen the detail already but yes, it is at the Little Desert lodge. With how most years bookings go I would expect it to be camp sites only at this point as the rooms usually fill up pretty quickly.

Edit, booking form sent and payment made, Is it October yet?

All booked and paid for. Looking forward to catching up with everyone again. Sounds like thereís going to be lots of new stuff to look at too. You guys better not bring the clouds with you though 😄
Finished the belt mod on the EQ6 so I hope I donít have too much trouble with it. Iím usually kept busy enough just keeping Jen under control 😂
Bring on October.

Sadly I'll be a "no show" for this camp. I go under the surgeon's robotic knife on 23 October. I plan to make a full recovery in time for next March. How many sleeps until then?

Hi all. Owing to circumstances, I'm afraid I won't be able to attend this year. Hope you all have a great time.
Regards, Norm.
