The voting is showing a trend towards Copeton Dam so I have taken steps to reserve our area.
Maybe a little premature but as some members require a school holiday booking best to step in now to avoid possible dissapointment. (Any arrangement can be cancelled)
The site is reserved from Sat. November 18th.
You may arrive earlier if you wish.
The cost for a powered site for 1 van, 2 people is $90.00 for 7 nights.

An area within Copeton Waters State Park called "Copeton Bay" has sufficient power for around 50 vans and this is reserved for the Boggers..
This area is about 2 kl inside the park and away from the day use area, reception area etc. There is a small kids play area with swings etc.
Toilets and showers are nearby.
The power poles are at random spacings well apart from each other so the area will not appear regimented as with a van park.
Bush camping is available nearby for those who prefer it that way.
The staff will allow a group campfire (similar to Cania) as well as the individual fireplaces.

The following web site will give you further info.
http://www.stateparks.nsw.gov.au/copeton.html

The telephone number for bookings is 02 6723 6269
As with Cania, please phone and make your own booking.
Tell the staff that you are with the Bushtracker Owners Group when booking.

So this should get things moving. Please do not leave your booking till the last minute.
To totally reserve this area in a school holiday period we need substantial bookings by end June 2004.

Regards
Turist
PS. Please post a message here when you have made your booking

You should have seen Angie when she stayed at our house last year. Not likely to get her skinny dipping again. Brian
Enjoying the friendship of BOG members

Copeton update : I just spoke to the manager of Copeton SRA and she advises that around 40 are booked in for rally. A few points .... Although there are powered sites where we are there is not a tap per van. A central tap at the amenities is the water supply. For those wanting to shower in their BT some way of transporting water to your BT is needed. I'm using my trusty 150L bladder. Nothing wrong with using the amenities and they will cope with the numbers easily. Maybe those with younger children would prefer to bath them in BT especially if it is a bit cold. There is a long weekend in NSW in early Oct. The usual stream of campers start to arrive on the 30th Sept ....(for Oct 1,2,3) so anyone staying longer than this date should advise Copeton as soon as arriving ..as we are on some of (maybe all of) the sites usually given out for this long weekend. A few of the footloose and fancy free BTers might hang around for longer than the 30th ? Dont forget warm clothing for night as I was advised it is still cold at night at this time of year. The area is a bit undulating so a few extra levelling blocks on board might not go astray. I carry a plastic step in case the BT's first step is a little high when the annexe side is facing downhill somewhat. This step also makes a great seat for chopping up some kindling with axe. Available at most "van accessories" outlets. I've placed a copy of this into the 2004 rally thread. Regards Anthony Explore this Great Land ...Do it Easy ...Tow a Bushtracker

There are three Bushtracker 18s on the 2004 Rally Acceptance list. I didn't think that MSN permitted the use of the same handle more than once. tgintl/jay

Jay, I think that just means that Anthony added those people to the list on their behalf. Not that the actual people's Bog ID is the same as Anthony's. There will only be one Bushtracker18. LOL. Angie

Jay, Angie is on the money ... some friends with BTs that dont frequent the group because they are full time on the road with very limited net access. The two BTs I listed on their behalf were at the Cania rally last year .... Anthony Explore this Great Land ...Do it Easy ...Tow a Bushtracker

Angie luuuuurves it when she is smart enough to solve puzzles. Should have been a detective. Angie 91 sleeps (and don't let Ivan tell you its 92).
