To Answer my own question.
The holiday park now has only 2 standard cabins left for those 2 nights.

Gloucester Accommodation

Hi All
Have just spoken to the Roundabout hotel Gloucester to try and get a room and they have advised they are all booked. They asked if anyone is cancelling can you please let them know.
They also advised that there are many twin/family rooms with only one person booked in, so if anyone is prepared to share a room put up a post.
For the campers they also have a grassed area out the back with access to showers that they are prepared to have people set up tents on for $10 a night, so if anyone is camping they can set up close to the action.
Should be a great weekend, they have an extensive wine list, craft beers on tap and the weather is good (but chilly of an evening)
See you up there, Regards Bruce (aka Brucestrom)

Hi P38
I am up for sharing for Friday and Saturday if that is OK.
Will split the costs.
Did you find out where you are staying?, I think the Roundabout may have mentioned they have a Ron there.
Best Regards Bruce (aka Brucestrom)

Beds available at the Roundabout Hotel

There are beds available plus camping areas available with own amentities at the Roundbout Hotel
I just spoke with Adrian from the Hotel and he said there were rooms taken up with extra beds and only 1 person.


wobbly's room (I've got the Double bed:mrgreen but theres a single and a trundel (aparently that's a bed that slides under another)

In Terry's kato-strom, room (theres 3 singles avail plus a trundel)

so I've just made 4 + 2 trundels avail if anyone wants them + split costs.

BYO ear plugs

Theres 4 other rooms with spare beds.....but no pressure given just yet.

Cheers

My room may become available.

I was putting my car engine back together and inadvertently dragged one of the aluminium cylinder heads across the head studs, scoring across the new machined head surface right at the fire ring. I've had to take the head back to be resurfaced.

That's going to slow down getting it back together ready for an upcoming holiday.

Wobbly, if I don't come, I'll ask AstroBob to fix you up for dinner. I can fix Bob up.

Well so much for "Wotif.com" .... I had booked on the interweeeebs with them and you have to put in the dates required.... well I booked Friday and Saturday or so I thought but all I got was in Friday with a check out Saturday. Yes read the fine print..
So I need a warm dry place for Saturday and willing to share costs.

Resume....
I am a 61 year old man with 2 (yes read 2 Vstroms and both 1000cc) If your real nice and I get the bottom bunk (read I am 61 years old lads with probable prostate issues) you can ride a V2 with GotaV2 farkles, but you may not use the right hand throttle if your not used to 1000cc Power).
If you are really, really nice and provide a single bunk that is dry and warm and are in need of a K6 Vstrom with the best performance and fuel economy in the Wee territory.. well wee can talk price in the wee (pun intended) small (pun further intended) hours on Saturday / Sunday.
Ok now Im not getting a room from anyone riding a wee I shall pack a very small tent.... (seriously my friends I need a room out of the rain)
<
<
<

OK I will Buy you Breakfast Sunday..... (am I begging enough that a Wee Small motor cycle person would take pity???)
Its going to Rain .. Lord have mercy Wee owners
Can I hear evil chuckles from a certain meat pie expert who lives around the gong
Wobbly. Wee need to talk small B-B-Q's.... P38areover.. I owned a rover 2000TC so I feel the pain.. Brucestrom..Maroubra Seals Club and Hunters and Collectors are interwined and My Dad (deceased and a Triumph Bike rider Circa 1940's) is a foundation member of Wanda SLC.......... Ok now I am losing it... Help needed!!!!
