Hello Everyone

Well, can you all believe that it is exactly 4 weeks today till our Retreat! How time flies! Below is some useful information about the Retreat.

Dates - Thursday 23rd April – Sunday 26th April

Address - Brookfield QCCC, 179 Gold Creek Road, Brookfield, QLD, 4069

Payment - As there is only 4 weeks until the Retreat we request final payments to be made by Monday 6th April.

Sleeping Arrangements - You are required to bring our own linen – this includes towels, washers, bath mat, pillow, sheets, blankets/sleeping bags. Alternatively, you can hire linen from the venue at an additional charge. Please let us know if you require linen to be hired.

Meals – All meals are included over the course of the Retreat. Special Dietary Requirements – Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements so that we can notify the venue

Workshops - As previously mentioned there will be 4 workshops during the Retreat – I am sure that you would have all seen our sneak peak of these! There will be two Workshops on Friday and two on Saturday (times will be advised shortly). It is not compulsory to attend/complete the workshops, that is entirely up to you. You will still receive all of the product and instructions to complete them at some other time.

Pre-Retreat Evening - Tuesday 14th April 5pm – 7pm – This evening you can come along to the shop and view the projects that we will be doing at the Retreat. We will give you information as to what photos are required and any other special requirements needed to complete these projects.

Challenge Kit – For each person who purchases a Challenge Kit there will be 3 – 4 Challenges that can completed over the course of the Retreat. The winner will receive a great prize compliments of Scrapbook City. Please advise if you have not already, if you require a Challenge Kit – they are $50.00 and offer great value – even if you do not complete the Challenges!

Massages – We have arranged two wonderful and professional ladies to be on hand to do massages for us. I can highly recommend these ladies to you, as I have had the wonderful benefit of having a massage with them before. Please let me know if you are interested. The price is $22 for 20 minutes.

Saturday Evening - In true Scrapbook City style you are invited to attend Saturday Evening’s Masquerade Party!! Don your best Masquerade Mask for your chance to win some fantastic prizes.

Downtime – There will be some downtime during the Retreat. For those who have not been to a Retreat before, now is the time for you to tackle some of the projects that you have been meaning to get around to! Bring these along to work on in between the Workshops. If you are arriving on Thursday, you will be able to work on your own projects in the evening and then again on Friday prior to the first Workshop. Don't forget to bring your self healing mat, any tools and adhesives that you might need over the weekend and any projects you would like to work on.

Mini Shop - As we have previously done so, we will once again have a Mini Shop at the Retreat. We will have the basic products here, but we also have the option of ducking back to the shop should you have any special requests.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if there is any further information that you may require. We are really looking forward to the weekend - we hope you are too!!
