Jane Johnson recently organised a meeting of those interested, and here are the notes.

Maria Island Mar 2-5 Update Jan 29

1. There have been 15 people who have put their name on the list for Maria adventures. There is likely to be 1 skiff crew from Cygnet, no word from Taroona, a possible involvement from Spring Bay.

2. Election Sat Mar 3 means postal voting will have to be organised, or vote near Orford

3. The Aboriginal name for Maria is Toarra-marra-monah thanks to Dennis. ? add to Tawe Nunnegah which loosely means journey by boat

4. Parks passes are needed for entry to Maria Island as a National Park...we have enough passes to cover these costs

5. Booking date is Feb 24 - don't miss out..Limit of 30.

"Plan B" details will be available at next update. People will be notified by Thursday Mar 1 if weather is an issue. Self-catering, so plan for at least two nights camping.
