Yes thanks for the info Diablo

This is way we have all booked our rooms at the Lodge without meals and just pay as we go.
Some people do not want breakfast and wait for morning tea/coffee on the ride and lunch is always out on the ride.
Dinner can be where ever we choose as a group

The new manager insists it will be $135 per person per night including meals ($540) plus the surcharge of $55 for a single room .

There is no way I am paying that, and I now understand why so many are balking at it.

I am cancelling our bookings and will advise if and when another venue /date/ride is organised.


Hope the date is NOT changed. What about the pub?

Hi everyone.

As organisers, Diablo and I acknowledge there has been a lot of confusion with the accommodation. The deal that was originally agreed, and in our case, deposits paid, has been changed by the current manager of the Lodge. This has caused everyone headaches, and we apologise. Our own headaches have been taken care of by taking a few 'chill pills' - in my case, Nurofen Plus.

We have 2 options, and I'm going to put the preferred option first:

Date - stays the same as before - Friday 24 and Saturday 25 November.
Location - changes to ARMIDALE. As nice as the Bellingen Moor Lodge is, we have a sour taste after what has happened, and dinner options are limited in Bellingen. There is nowhere we can walk to from the lodge.
Accommodation - There are 2 motels right at the Bowling Club in Dumaresq St: The Club Motel and The New England Motor Inn

The preferred motel is the Club Motel, as this is all single story (no upstairs), is more modern, has 18 rooms and we will probably take all or most of the rooms.

The prices are: Double - $135 (Single in own room is the same rate); Double with King Bed $145; 3 people sharing - $180 for the room (1 room only at this size); 2 men sharing a double room - $160

Order breakfast off the menu - I am still trying to get us a deal on the breakfast.

The contact person is Jenny, and the telephone number is (02) 6772 8777 Group name is: FJR Owners

The other accommodation option is the Club Motel is full, is the New England Motor Inn, across the road. This is a double-storey older building. Their prices are: Double - $135; Single $120; 3 people sharing - $215 for the room (1 room only at this size I think); 2 men sharing a double room - $160

The contact person is Chris, and the telephone number is (02) 6771 1011 Group name is: FJR Owners

Once again, we apologise for the confusion and inconvenience, and we hope to see you there.

The second option is the same as the first :dance: :lol:

We still get to ride great roads, we have better dinner choices - the Bowling Club or the Wicklow Hotel, both less than half-a-block walk from where we will stay. I will be finalising dinner plans for Saturday night in the next week or so.

Please add your name as you book here, and I will start taking shirt orders for the 15th Annual FJR Owners State of Origin ride in the next week or so.

Noel, just curious: how was the manager at Bellingen? Were they at all interested in "why" there is a mass cancellation, or just not concerned?
