UFO Watch Night

UFO Watch Night

Hi everyone,

It’s so good to see so many new members and I cannot believe how many web hits we have had on our site.

We have begun preparations for our inaugural first "UFO Night Watch" The event will be held in March 2012 and firm dates and costs will be published when we know exact numbers.

We have been in contact with Fernleigh Cottages Country Retreat near Mansfield

The event will be held over one day and one evening, this will be a Saturday Night and although all pre-planning is done to ensure a clear night we cannot guarantee what nature has planned.

Situated just outside Mansfield and only minutes from the beautiful Eildon Weir this location offers not only a relaxing setting but is ideal for UFO and Sky watching events. We know you will be keen to jump on board and enjoy the experience.

The Barn

The Barn is a large building consisting of a large lounge/meeting area situated in the middle with a kitchen and dining room for shared use, there are 5 bedrooms, all with double beds and bunks. There is also an extra bedroom attached to The Barn known as the Delatite Cabin, this can be booked at an additional fee.(not yet determined)

The barn in total sleeps 33 people, including the Delatite Cabin. The Barn is approx 35 squares under roofline with plenty of room and comfy seating.

 Tariff is $60.00 each The Minimum of $440.00 for the night

We will configure the 5 bedrooms as follows:

3 Bedrooms - (Dorm Style) 2 Male and 1 Female

2 Family bedrooms

The cost for accommodation has been kept to the bare minimum and it is expected that those people who come along will enjoy the night in the spirit that it is intended. This is not a luxury 4 star hotel; it’s a “bunk in and enjoy the experience” fun event.
