In mid-September we are proposing to hold a social gathering in the Blue Mountains as we appreciate there has long been a desire for many of the members of our cyber community to meet face-to-face. For those interested in more serious exploration of the issues being explored by Fr Eugene there may also be an opportunity to participate in some workshops or attend some talks.
This form is to help us gauge numbers of those who might be interested in participating. There are many accommodation options available up here in the Blue Mountains and we have not yet made any bookings or plans as we are not sure of what people might like. We would like, if possible to make this opportunity available to as many as possible irrespective of their personal circumstances.
At this stage we are mainly concerned to get a rough indication of numbers for either of the weekends nominated. Some people may travel considerable distances and may wish to stay on a little longer than the weekend and we'd like some indication of that as well.
Please note that any information submitted in this questionnaire will be treated confidentially by ourselves. It is only required for rough planning purposes.
