Hello everyone,

It's a long time since I had a look at the forum. I'm impressed by the number of subjects and messages. I need, at least, a week to read everything, but, as many members around Mediterranean Sea and surely in northern parts, we suffered such a cold winter, that I need to clean the garden now and cut, cut, cut and crush and mulch and replant, so and so.......
What a lot of work !
I'm planning also to go to Australia and happy to meet again friends from MGS.

Help,  Having read the information abut the MGS AGM in Aus I note that it states that accommodation details can be found  - quote 'For accommodation details consult the MGS website or contact Tania Norman at Oliver Travel or telephone............'   

Having searched several times the website, I cannot find any information referring to the aforementioned accommodation,  only the contact info at Oliver Travel.  Can anyone tell us exactly where to look 'on the website'

Janice, I sent an e-mail to the address given and received a reply by return post, as it were, signed by Jeanette and listing the hotel options and prices in Melbourne, Adelaide and for the Kangaroo Island tour.

Alistair,  Has anyone reported problems with the Registration Form on the website for the AGM Australia?  I have filled out the form but when I sent it there was a message 'Verification number not accepted'  and returned me to the form with a new verification number to input which I did,  only to be returned back to the form again with the same message.  I do hope we can resolve this problem as I feel it is getting late to register.  Also, the 'Payment' window does not open.  Can you please help?

Janice, I've not heard of problems. Best thing would be for you to get in touch direct with Oliver Travel.

Janice, I think that if you get that Incorrect Verification Code message, all you have to do is retype the number that came up against Verification Code, in the empty box beside it.
