Hi all,

We were just reading the member gatherings section and were thinking of travelling to Birdsville for the national get-together. Its as good an excuse as any for another outback voyage. Just wondering though, how many people get along to these gathering things?

Also, a question for the members, if I can access most areas as a visitor, what are the benefits in being a member???

Thanks...
Michael and Mary

Check out the membership benefits here .

There is the extra benefit of knowing that yourmembership helps keep this whole thing going. I hae saved many times over my membership through purchases and use of the Trader section.

Mate, wether you pay $50.00 or not, won't make one iota of difference. You will be treated the same as everyone else.

Just rock up.............. simple.

Michael and Mary,

I am sure the members have more fun though than Wolfie suggests because they meet others before and the trips continue the friendship. I am sure members feel more a part of the site with their contribution. members also are entitled discounts at various businesses, although as a business person myself I have never asked for the extras like that.

If you look at the trip to Murray Sunset coming up 11-14th March if time allows, you will see there are something like 27 families/vehicles going. Without looking I know three states and consideration was given for trying to make it easier to get the least distance travelled for the members.

I have always found if I contribute, I will end up getting back as much or more in return. With this case more as we have hosted EO friends, we know we are welcome to visit them too. There are so many people who are like minded. We enjoy the contact right across the range of ages of our friends - 30s and the kids of theirs, to 60s on EO. It's really inter-generational.

Don't worry too much for your first $50, it's $30 the next year.
Cheers,
Who?
John

There was a recent thread that discussed membership very well. Was started by Bruce I think.

Have a browse back over the past few days.
