Dear Caravan and Cabiners
In line with the club decision to postpone our General Meetings until the Coronavirus situation has been clarified, we have decided to postpone the Caravan and Cabin weekend in Toora.
I am truly sorry that we have had to take this action, but you will appreciate that the health and safety of our members is paramount, and, as convenor Caravan and Cabin Interest Group, I feel it would not be right to subject our fun loving Caravan and Cabiners to unnecessary risk.
We are indeed in the highest risk demographic for the disease, and with the weekend away there will be times when are all in close proximity for an extended period.
The thinking at this stage is that we reschedule the weekend to around the same time next year rather than cancel altogether.
With this approach we will avoid the process of cancellations and refund of deposit and any associated penalties, as well as the need to book again for next year.
I have spoken to the Caravan Park, and made a booking for Friday 25th, Saturday 26th and Sunday 27h March 2021, and arranged for all our club bookings to be moved to these dates.
Hopefully you are OK with this approach.
So, could I please ask you to respond to me to confirm your agreement with rescheduling to next year on the March dates as proposed?
If you have booked Toora, please contact Dave Davies indicating “OK to Reschedule”, or “Cancel booking”.
We have left the Yea bookings in place for November for the time being.
Apologies for the disruption but I am sure you will understand the situation.
Cheers and thanks

The Caravan & Cabin Group is organised by a small committee and there are usually 2 trips a year – one in March and one in October.
Caravan & Cabin trips are a fantastic way to meet others in the club and we always have a lot of fun.
Convenors of the Caravan & Cabin Group – David and Yvonne Davies

VENUE: Toora Tourist Park, Toora, in the heart of Gippsland
I have arranged for all our club bookings from 2020 to be moved to these dates.
Toora, Gippsland – The nearest township is Foster, which is 10 minutes’ drive from Toora. This is a second visit to the park for our club. The Toora Caravan Park has a full range of cabins and powered sites, many with ensuite.
The park has a heated, indoor pool and a conference room that will be booked out to us for the duration of our stay.
Here is the website if you want to take a look at the park facilities. https://www.tooratouristpark.com.au
When you book, remember to let the park know that you are part of the Ringwood Clocktower Probus Club and please let me know that you have made a booking.

VENUE: Yea Riverside Caravan Park
I realise this is a long reservation, however, when I tried to book for Autumn next year the park was full booked. The Yea Riverside Caravan park is located at the end of the main street in Yea, walking distance to the shops and for coffee. It’s a small, lovingly maintained park, with a recreation room that will be made available to us for the duration of our stay.
There are 4 single bed Studio cabins and 6 X 2 Bedroom cabins. In total all cabins will sleep 32 without using any top bunks, so I have reserved all these cabins.
We have until mid August to confirm our bookings, however, as always I would strongly encourage members to book now to get you best chance for the cabin configuration you would like best. In the event that all cabins are booked, you can still join in the weekend activities by booking at the Tartan Motel which is 5 minutes’ walk (1 minute’s drive) from the park. I have not made any reservations at the Tartan Motel.
When you book, remember to let the park know that you are part of the Ringwood Clocktower Probus club, and please let me know that you have made a booking.
