Vicki McKinnon advised of some good accommodation for Friday evening.
A nice place to stay is called the “Wangi Point Lakeside Holiday Park” on Watkins Road Wangi Wangi. Phone no is 4975 1889
Internet address is : www.lakemacholidayparks.com.au and select Wangi Point.
It will give you all the details.

You can eat at the Wangi Workers Club or the RSL. I am sure the park could fill you in there. Ian has fished out there and he said it is a nice spot. In fact the boys could hover from there to Myuna Bay.

Suggestion from Peter Streader - President AHF
