Committing to the Walk

Dear Walkers,

Thank you to those of you who have already registered through the form on the website www.walkingforcountry.com.   The walk is 8 weeks away now. Exciting times!!

We are in the process of trying to order food and lock in transport, and as such, we really need to start confirming numbers.

Given the nature of being a mobile community in the desert with only one big water tank and one kitchen truck (don’t worry, these are re-fillable, but we need some planning to make it happen), we do have a maximum capacity of walkers that we can accommodate at any one time.

REGISTRATION

 To help us confirm numbers and also start purchasing the food, we are asking that people pay a $50 (per adult deposit) to secure your place.  If you have already registered online, many thanks, and we look forward to walking on country with you.

Please make this deposit as soon as you can, we ask that all registrations and deposits are made by the 10th July so as we can start ordering food and other necessaries.

This $50 will count towards your first contribution of the $5-$10 a day that we are requesting people pay towards food during the walk.  If you want to come but are unable to make the $50 deposit by the 10th July, please contact me and we can arrange something.

Please transfer the $50 (per family or adult joining) to the Fremantle Anti Nuclear Group (details below).

NOTE:  When you’re making the deposit please ensure that you put your name in the reference field so we can make sure who had paid!  If you are a family registering, you can use your last name, and please indicate how many people are included.

Direct Deposit – Bendigo Bank

Account Name: Fremantle Anti Nuclear Group

BSB: 633-000

Account Number: 137443347

Reference: YOUR NAME (& number of people coming with you if a family e.g.  Hogan x5)

 

A note on TRANSPORT….

We are in the process of booking buses to take people up to the start of the walk.  We need to confirm numbers before we finalise the bus bookings.  Hence this rego confirmation and deposit process!

We have also updated the registration form, so those of you who have already registered we have a couple of other questions to help with the transport logistics..

Do you need a ride to Yeelirrie?

We will be running a bus from Perth to Yeelirrie at a cost of $80 per adult, or from Kalgoorlie for a cost of $50 per adult

There are some people taking their own cars up to join us at the start of the walk and we are encouraging people to car-pool.  I will be setting up a car-pool document to share in the next few days to help people organise to share rides.  I will keep you posted on this!

To recap…. Please do the following:

  1. Fill out the registration form online
  2. Make a $50 deposit to FANG bank account to secure your place
  3. Let us know of you need a ride to Yeelirrie

Exciting times!!!!  Looking forward to meeting you all soon when we begin!

More updates to come over the next few weeks in preparation.

Please remember that we would love it if you were able to do some fundraising for the walk!  Host a winter solstice dinner party, sell some of your delicious jam, put on a poetry night, put together a raffle, talk to your networks, have a bbq…

Much respect and joy,

Lemme know if you have any questions,

Laura
