Camp Krusty Info 2009

2009-04-20 — posted by at 00:09

Scanners/Computers

Make sure you; back up and delete all work from all computers, we spent several days over the holidays wiping stuff, to free hard disk space, especially on the Nikon Scanner. Don’t leave any work on any computer for ANY period of time.

Camp Krusty 2009

Meeting this week, Thursday, at 12:30 in the White Room, just to ‘touch base’ and answer any questions, if there is enough demand, I will print, out maps beforehand.

Firstly here’s some photos from the 2008 camp.

The Camp site is in a place called Tanybryn, about two and a half hours west of Melbourne. Here is a link to a map, that you can download and print out that gives written instructions on how to get there, as well as this map courtesy of google.


View Larger Map

When to get there

We have booked the camp from, 4:00pm Teusday – 1:00pm Thursday. Please do NOT arrive before 4:00pm, the camp is used by others and they may have not left by the alloted time.

About the camp

The Tanybryn campsite currently contains 2 buildings, a “rec” room, with pool table, table tennis table, a fireplace, 2 stoves, gas electric and a refrigerator, some couches and chairs, the couches convert to beds, and last but not least a fireplace. Obviously there is electricity, however, there is NO mobile phone reception.

The second building is the “dorm”. This is really 4 rooms with 3 bunk beds in each. Which means the camp sleeps 24 in total, of course people sometimes sleep on floors and as I said some room is available on the floor and couches in the “rec” room. Each room in the dorm block has an on-suite bathroom and toilet.

About Tanybryn & The Otways

Tanybryn is situated in the Otways a sub tropical area of Victoria, this area has HIGH levels of RAINFALL compared to the rest of the state ALL year round. It WILL rain when we are there, at least once per day, probably more. The frequency and quantity of the rain will be the unknown. So bring wet weather gear, as well as solid shoes.

A feature of the area is the waterfalls. Therefore there will be ample opportunity to photograph in these locations. If you have a particular waterfall or feature of the area you wish to photograph, let us know we can all head out together and check it out.

What to bring

Bring the following items

  • Raincoat/Wet weather gear
  • Hat, Sun & Warm.
  • Sunblock cream
  • Sleeping Bag & Blankets
  • Pillow
  • Towel & toiletries
  • Warm clothes
  • Camera gear
    • Camera
    • Tripod
    • Film/Cards
  • A bag of firewood, 1 per car.
  • A Torch
  • NO BOTTLES or GLASS, Aluminum only, what YOU bring in YOU take out.

What we will do while there

We have several activities planned, Tuesday night, is a workshop called painting with light. Wednesday, we will go on a “hike” and undertake a landscape workshop shoot. Wednesday night we will be having a trivia night, competition.

Driving Down?

One last note, please be careful driving down, break for a few minutes every hour or so while driving, use the opportunity to make some images while stopping. There is no need to hurry, someone will be there from 4:00pm on Teusday.

What’s Going on at PIC?

For those of you staying behind this week, the facility is open for you to use to work on your own projects. Several of the staff are staying behind, to help.
