Dear Friends around Australia (and beyond!)
Tiona Reunion 2017 planning is well underway and it’s full steam ahead. It promises to be a joyful and uplifting experience…
I am grateful that we continue to be able to provide the opportunity to come together and know community in a way that touches human hearts so profoundly. And here it is on our very doorstep. At Tiona Reunion we can refresh our spirit and listen to the voice of God speaking directly into our own hearts. We are inspired and touched by hearing each other’s stories… each other’s challenges… each other’s passion. We are strengthened by being in relationship with one another… finding our connection, our sisterhood and brotherhood, in amongst our diversity.
ASSISTING PEOPLE TO PLAN TO BE THERE IS AN IMPORTANT STEP. Last year we introduced an early booking system which was extremely successful in allowing people to select their preference before we finalised our Reunion booking with the Lease Managers.
RIGHT NOW – until 24Th August – YOU CAN DO THAT AGAIN! You can make your choice and ensure your preferred option is available for you when registrations open fully next month.
Tell us what you want and help us make the best selection.
We have significantly improved the system from last year and the RegisterNow accommodation system is a quick and easy process to make your choice and pay your deposit for your preferred accommodation. Click on this link to go straight there: https://www.registernow.com.au/secure/Register.aspx?E=2685
By the way, if you plan to select a tent/van site WITHIN the Lakeside section ie along the avenue between office and Green Cathedral, it is NOT necessary to pre-book as you can wait until the main registrations open – we block-book this camping area. You can however pre-book if you wish.
Tiona Reunion is unique in that you can tailor a Registration package to best suit your budget and your needs. Everyone pays the standard Event fee cost, then you add the accommodation of your choice and optional dining packages. See the full Fee Schedule below – heavily subsidised by the Tiona Lease Management income. Event registration and meal packages will be available to select when the main Registrations open in September.
As many of you will be aware, we are unable to increase our booking selections after the end of August. Please understand that using this early booking system is the way to ensure you can register for Tiona cabin-style accommodation.
RIGHT NOW all you have to do is say what accommodation you would like to reserve, and pay a deposit to secure your choice – before 24 August.
- You can also tell us if you need to match your Reunion booking with your private booking at Tiona before or after Reunion.
- You can tell us if there are special circumstances that mean you need access to a particular type of accommodation.
If you’re not sure – don’t wait – drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org OR text or phone me 0411 473835. Remember, there are limited supplies of some cabin types so the sooner you tell us what you want the better we can negotiate to find a win-win solution BEFORE you make a commitment.
