[clug] CanCodeCon possibilities

Hi people,

I and several other people from Canberra and Sydney had a really awesome 
weekend at CodeCon 2009, run by Peter Miller.  I was wondering if anyone would 
be interested in a similar event closer to home.

Option one is to duplicate Peter's formula - find a campground in state forest 
(one we can run a generator in, which National parks don't allow apparently) 
and go camping for a weekend.  Cost, $30 per person or thereabouts for the 
generator, plus bringing your own stuff.

Option two is to hire a wing of the Yarrangobilly Caves guest house.  It's 
$500 for a wing over the weekend, but you get seven or nine beds, a full 
kitchen, showers and power.  There's also the warm springs there which make 
for a nice way to relax, as well as some interesting caves to go see.  If we 
get nine people in the guest house this makes it about $55 per person, and I'd 
consider anything under five people in the guest house infeasible.

I was thinking of something in the March - April 2010 region - after the heat 
has died down but before it gets too cold.

If you're interested in one of these ideas, please post to the list so I can 
get an idea of how many people would opt for each one.

Have fun,
