Leaders Advance 2017


Our next National SCAC Leaders Advance will be on 4 and 5 March 2017, at the Country Club in Launceston, Tasmania. We encourage you to come over the whole weekend from Friday 3 March to Monday 6 March as we normally do.

This year we are separating the Advance registration fee from the accommodation costs.

Advance Registration Fee

The Cost of the Advance registration will be $200 per person (includes morning tea and lunch over the two days) and is payable by Wednesday 1 February 2017. We also have a Wine & Cheese social evening planned on the Saturday evening at Noel Eagling’s home that will cost an additional $20 per person should you wish to attend. Soft drinks will also be available. All payments for the Advance and Social night can be made online at https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/scac-leaders-advance-2017-tickets-26090142318.

You will need to book and pay for your own accommodation this Advance. We have reserved 20 one-bedroom self-contained villas at $135 per night under The Southern Cross Association of Churches. Each room has a queen size bed and a fully equipped kitchenette. You can prepare your own meals (breakfasts and dinners) or eat at any of the onsite restaurants, pizzeria or grill. A lounge room area is also included, with a pull down double bed in the lounge, which makes the villa suitable for up to four people (or two couples) sharing. Additional adults (two included in room rate quoted) are $40 per person per night. Children are $20 per child per night. Porta cots are also available to be added for younger infants for the cost of $10 per stay.

You will need to book and pay for your own accommodation either

  1. Over the phone using the code BB#834930, or
  2. Online at http://bookings.ihotelier.com/bookings.jsp?groupID=1621237&hotelID=11373


You will need to book your own flight into Launceston airport. It is about a 15km drive from Launceston Airport to the Country Club Villas so you may wish to look at car hire. You can hire a car from the airport from around $43+ per day. You will also need transport to get to the Eagling’s home on the Saturday for the Wine & Cheese social evening (about 20km away). Alternatively, taxi fares will cost you $40-50 dollars up to 20km one way. Please look at carpooling with others you know to help reduce your costs.
