Retreat 20th and 21st October 2012

Retreat Information for Classes and Crops for A Place to Create.
Saturday October 20th and Sunday October 21st at Ferny Grove Bowls Club.
We hope that you are able to join us for our second retreat. We are going to bring you some amazing classes at fantastic value.  We are so excited to be able to build most of our classes around new and exciting stock that has just been released.  If you can’t make it to the retreat talk to us about available kits for the classes.
How the classes work: You can simply choose the classes you are interested in and book.  There is no limit to the number of classes as long as you only choose one class from each session time.
This retreat gives you the best of both worlds.  Crop to your heart’s content with the opportunity to participate in classes as you desire- you can just pop out of the crop to attend classes as necessary. If you do not wish to join in the crop sessions you may just come along for classes as you wish.  Book into any class in session 2 or 3 on Saturday and you can stay and crop till 11.30pm for just $15.
No meals are included with class & crop bookings but can be purchased at the bistro on Saturday. Assorted Sandwiches are available for lunch Sunday and need to be ordered when making your bookings. Alcohol and drinks may be purchased from the bar throughout the weekend.
Crops may be attended on either day or you can book for both. Places are limited Pre Paid bookings are essential to secure your booking.
