  • Stanthorpe Convention buses

    It is in regard to Buses for the Convention in October. If there are sufficient numbers I will be appointing a Bus Coordinator to handle the bookings as I won't have time.

    We have got a quote for buses for people who want to go to the convention, but choose not to drive.

    We hope to run two buses, one going North from Burleigh Heads, through Brisbane and on to Stanthorpe via Warwick, and another going South through Tweed, Ballina, Lismore and Tenterfield.

    This of course will depend on the numbers who wish to avail themselves of this service.

    The cost per person will be $125 for the Convention Hospitality pack, $80 each for the bus and the cost of your accommodation. We have accommodation secured in two motels in Stanthorpe until the end of July, so we have to get an indication pretty quickly about who wants to utilise this service.

    With regard to the accommodation, I have attached a spreadsheet which shows what sort of bed/beds are in each room. If you wish you can share with friends or partners. To this end I have added a column to the spreadsheet so that you can work out who you wish to share with.

    The accommodation prices vary between $230 per room for the weekend up to family rooms for $370.

    Please look at the spreadsheet and determine which room would suit you and any people you are sharing with best. If you share a room it will reduce your overall cost.

    Please email me back as soon as possible, if you wish to be on a bus, with the following information:

    Name and Club

    Where you would prefer to be picked up

    Who (if anyone) you wish to share a room with (max 4 people to a room X 2 rooms available))

    Your Preferred room - then your next 5 preferences in order. (Please use the Reservation number in the FIRST column of the attached spreadsheet)

    Whether you wish all of your fellow club members travelling by bus to be in the same motel

    Whether you prefer Bus only, or Bus and Hospitality Pack only (please be aware that your bus will only drop off at the two motels listed - if you intend to stay elsewhere you will need to arrange transport from either motel)

    Be aware before responding that your total fare (Bus + Hospitality + Accommodation) will be in the range of $230 to $475 per person depending on whether you want a room to yourself or can share with others. Depending on numbers there may also be a slight change to the bus component but you will be notified in plenty of time.

    To secure the rooms and the bus/buses I must know before the end of next week, and it must be paid for by the end of August. Please do not send any payment now, just in case we have to cancel because of insufficient numbers.

    One more thing, it won't matter which bus passengers are staying in which motel as we will drop off at both, but will be using one bus per motel for transport over the weekend. This will be necessary as both motels are at either end of Stanthorpe. You will then catch the appropriate bus back on Sunday afternoon.

    Best Regards

    May is recycle for sight month

    This month, collect used eyeglasses and raise awareness about the Lions eyeglass recycling program.

    Eyeglass recycling is one of the Lions most popular activities.

    Refractive errors can be easily corrected with eyeglasses, yet millions in developing nations lack access to basic eye care services. Lions have recognized the urgent need for corrective lenses and continue to lend their support to the Lions Recycle for Sight Program.

    Starting an eyeglass collection in your community can be an easy and rewarding activity that will raise your club's visibility and provide your fellow Lions with a great deal of satisfaction in serving others.

    Contact local businesses, schools, libraries, places of worship, city administrative centers and eye care professionals. Invite them to assist with your collection efforts by hosting collection boxes.

    Use Lions Recycle for Sight resources for your collection campaign,

    Send your collected eyeglasses, reading glasses, frames and sunglassesse to one of the official Lions Eyeglass Recycling Centers.

    Report your club's eyeglass collection efforts via the online Lions Club Service Activity Report.
