    I have a list of accomodation from the last event, it is a bit old but can be used as a guide.

    The Blitz should be a bit of fun for those not to warn out, and those who want to stay for a beer.

    Well done at the MCC Cup weekender. Equal 9th out of 61 players.

    Thanks for the info Jeff.

    Already starting to make some plans.

    I'm not keen on blitz but I'll support the club and stay for a beer after round 3

    Stephen Solomon 7 wins
    Darryl Johansen 4 wins

    additional info please?

    Hi Greg,
    I just checked on my calendar and the weekend 26 -27 Feb is free!
    If possible please provide some information for the interstate travellers.
    What's the best way (flightways) of getting to Coolum for someone from Melbourne?
    Are there direct flights to the Sunshine coast?
    Closest airport to Coolum?
    In the old ways we used to hitch hikes from one Coast (Gold) to the other! (Sunshine) but it doesn't work anymore!
    Sometimes we ended up in Cairns hippy communes but don't tell Howie!

    For our interstate travellers.

    Tiger, Jetstar & Virgin airlines fly from Tullamarine to Sunshine Coast Airport (which is about 10km South of the venue). I am flying down for the Begonia Open in March with my wife for $284.60 return with Tiger airways. I believe there is now a new bus service from the airport terminal, I am unsure whether it goes North. If more details are needed let me know.

    Flights also available from Sydney.

    Cheers,
    Jeff

    I just checked out! Yes, there is a bus service from the Airport to Coolum. It's bus No. 622!
    BTW please include me in the 98.5% certains list!

    Getting there!

    Booked flights and accommodation (Atlantis Marcoola) just about a km from the venue, could have found closer but I love the walk across the beach! . Posting entry fee sometime next week.

    Make sure you don't overstay your viza, otherwise there 'll be additional charges!

    G'day JaK,

    You'll be the 1st interstate entry for the 2011 Powell Suncoast Open.

    The event will go well, we used the venue for the first time last year and it is very nice.

    Thanks for the comment in your earlier post about the fact that our open (Noosa) & the Gold Coast open used to be ran a week apart, our club will keep that as a consideration in the future. We also had considered running it near one of the Redcliffe Open events.

    Time of year was a factor which may have attracted you to this event. The water temp should be great and I hope you have a couple of extra days to enjoy the beach.

    Cheers,
    Jeff


    I hope my Victorian Visa lasts for at least 10 days without extra charges.

    Following Garrett's example I am becoming an organisational genius! Once I scorned over scheduling for interstate events but now I realise how right he was and how wrong I was!

    Yes, I always give myself a couple of additional days!

    LOL no worries mate, I will make sure you have an honorary Vic Visa, I am not sure about Garvo though I might have to hide him from some unruly Victorians!
    Cheers and good luck

    PS Oh BTW what's the dress code for the RSL?
    [*] Kev, Rince, Jono, Eclectic, help! I forgot the rule! Is it an honour or a honour?

    As the 'h' is silent, the words phonetically starts with a vowel: 'o'. Language is designed for speech, so adapts around how we say things.

    So it is an honour.
