Saturday Night BBQ & Festivities
The Saturday Night BBQ will be a little different this year. We will be providing a smoked beef and Gravy roll free to those that have logged a “Will Attend” on both the Saturday Night BBQ event and of course the Parkville Mega Event. This is important so we know numbers for catering.
Every attendee will be given a wrist band. That wrist band will entitle you to ONE free beef and gravy roll, sponsored by Geocaching Victoria. Aside from this, our Geocaching Victoria Oxfam Teams will be running a fundraising BBQ for sausages and onions in bread and will also have drinks on sale. These will be $2.50 per sausage and $2 per drink. The Oxfam teams will have donation boxes available on the night, so bring along your appetite and your spare change.
We have four teams of 4 people competing in the 2019 Oxfam Trailwalker in March, walking 100km from Emerald, meandering through the densely forested Dandenong Ranges to Lilydale and then following a long and winding picturesque Yarra Trail, through to Fairfield.
And most importantly don’t forget to BYO Chair on Saturday night so you can sit back and enjoy watching the TREASURE MOVIE in comfort!
To those Vegetarians, Vegans or other dietary requirements, sorry but you will need to provide your own dinners as we simply don’t have the resources to supply separate meals for you.
Are you staying at Urban camp during the Mega? Don’t forget a couple of key items you will need…
- A sleeping Bag, doona or sheets.
- Pillow case (pillows are provided).
If you are staying at Urban Camp, you can check in from 3pm on Friday 16th November.
Please note that Urban Camp does not permit the use of aerosols anywhere in the building and this includes deodorants. This is because of their very sensitive smoke detectors which trigger the fire alarm. If the fire alarm goes off this automatically triggers a call out and you will be billed the $2000 call out fee. So just bring roll on, or go outside.
Also please note, their is no cooking facilities at Urban Camp. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants close by. Food in the form of a sausage sizzle will be available all day Saturday and Sunday at the MEGA site. There is an event nearby at the local Bowls Club on the Friday night and there is a free BBQ at the MEGA site on the Saturday night. There will also be a discount voucher in the registration bags for the two local McDonalds as well.
As per usual, we would like to thank our Major Sponsors. Without their ongoing support, big events like this would not be able to take place.
