Anzac Day Packages
The 2013 Anzac weekend is not too far away and accommodation needs to be sorted. Please note that the game this year will be played on Saturday 27th April at 8.30am. 2013 will be the biggest and most exciting domestic game the Tigers have ever seen! It is an excellent opportunity to pull on the Tigers jumper and participate in such an honourable match, and it will be great to have as many Tigers there as possible to help make this a special day. There may also be up to 7 diggers in attendance, which makes the game even more important for everyone involved.
We have blocked a total of 25 rooms at The Royal River Kwai Resort which need to be booked and paid for by Friday 5th April 2013. The cost for accommodation is the same as last year, and as those who have stayed there over the past few years can attest it is great value. As an added bonus, the club will put on free beer back at the resort after the game! Please note that once we have booked and paid for the accommodation it is nonrefundable meaning anyone cancelling after Friday 5th April will need to pay whether they come or not (unless we can find replacements). Accommodation is also very difficult to get over the Anzac weekend so there is no guarantee that we can accommodate any late bookings.
Transport will be arranged a later stage. It is likely that we will have several mini-vans leaving from Bangkok on Friday evening (26th April) from Lumpini Park or Tenderloins @ 6pm. The journey from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi takes approx 3hrs. Return transport will cost 1200 THB per person, although this will depend on demand and numbers.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org with Option 1, 2, 3 or 4. You will need to pay up before Friday 5th April. Details on payments below.
Kanchanaburi is a lovely part of Thailand, and ANZAC Day itself falls on a Thursday this year. If you are off work, why not travel up there a few days early. The options below are the most likely but if you have a special request please just ask.
