Absolute maximum attendees is 48 (capacity of our bus). 26 spots are already reserved via another Meetup Group. Average age booked are 30 to 40 year olds. To keep the demographics of the bus group intact we are looking for attendees under the age of 45. At the moment we have 22 spots left.

How to book: Put your name on the waitlist. The first 22 listed on the waitlist (I have 26 spots already reserved) will be asked to complete payment of $104.00 in full by Sunday 3rd March 2019 by direct debit or PayPal. Details are below.

Once you have paid in full your attendance is secure. Those amongst the first 22 on the waitlist who haven't paid in full by the 3rd March 2019 are not guaranteed of a booking as it will then be on a first to pay platform for the remaining bus seats and Event Tickets. I know this is early however I need to secure the coach at an early bird price and the Lovedale Long Lunch tickets can sell out at some of the selected venues. Cost for the event including return Bus and Event Entry Fee (inclusions below) is $104 per person (bus $25 per person and Event Entry Package $79 per person) This price is a saving of over $50 per person on any comparative price on the internet. SUNDAY 19th MAY ENTRY PACKAGE: Includes: Entry on Sunday, 1 Main Meal, 1 Dessert or Cheese Plate, 1 Souvenir Wine Tasting Glass and 1 Event Program Since 1994 the Lovedale Long Lunch has become the biggest Wine and Food event in the Hunter Valley and comes with live entertainment at every venue. Join us for the first ever Fun Tennis for Fitness bus trip to the Hunter Valley for the biggest annual event and the best day of the year at the Hunter Valley, the Lovedale Long Lunch. Confirmation of attendance is only after payment is made in full. The Lovedale Long Lunch is a progressive style lunch where food and wine lovers are invited to discover the wonders of Lovedale. Hunter Valley’s leading chefs team up with seven of Lovedale’s finest wineries and local entertainment for a day of foodie fun. Please join the waitlist as your Expression of Interest to attend this wonderful event. I will allow a +1 for this event, however you need to inbox me with your guest's name as you can not add a +1 on the waitlist. Links that you must inspect: https://www.lovedalelonglunch.com.au https://www.lovedalelonglunch.com.au/faqs/?FaqSectionID=3 https://www.lovedalelonglunch.com.au/#tickets We visit 3 fantastic wineries (yet to be chosen from a list of 7 wineries particpating).

You can buy a day transfer between wineries ticket through Rover Coaches (refer attached web links) Note: Please restrict all your enquires to this Meetup thread, so others benefit from your comments.
