What about me travelling thousands of kms to play in Gold Coast and Suncoast tournaments?
I would do it again though, I had great time! :) :clap:

You were flying, not driving by car. Flying to Mackay is not such a big deal at all.

Goughfather and Stokesy are talking about driving all the way back and forth.

Maybe there would be more takers if not for the fear that the offer of free accommodation translates to sleeping in the car too!
