Bailey caravan owners at their all-expenses-paid get-together
treated to three fun-packed days
BILL FOR GET-TOGETHER
Have your say
MORE than 130 owners of Bailey caravans have been treated to an
all-expenses-paid three-day weekend in SA's Barossa Valley.
Bailey Australia footed the entire bill for this year's Bailey Owners
Group's BASE 2018 get-together at Tanunda. Some members reportedly travelled
nearly 3000-km to attend the event which featured a James Bond-themed
dinner and a visit to the National Motor Museum at Birdwood, all courtesy
of the caravan manufacturer.
"It was the largest event we have ever run," Bailey's marketing assistant
Siobhan Capuana told Caravanning News.
"Customers travelled from all across Australia, many putting their names
down on the list for next year's event."
Meanwhile, group member Dianne O'Donnell wrote on Facebook: "We had a
great time and we have made some special friends whom we hope to keep in
contact with and maybe catch up on our travels around this great country
Capuana said 62 Bailey caravans were at the event, including 35 UK models
and 27 Australian ones.
Besides herself, the Bailey Australia team included Adrian (managing
director), Lance (national marketing manager), Craig (national sales
manager), Jovin (design engineer) and Clare (after-sales and warranty).
Buses took caravan owners on a wine tours in the region, visiting the
iconic Chateau Yaldara in the southern Barossa town of Lyndoch.
They were treated to a historic tour of the grounds and a wine sampling.
Then it was on to the majestic Chateau Tanunda, built in the late 1880s and home to some of the earliest
plantings of vines in the Barossa Valley.
They toured the grounds, wine cellars and enjoyed another a wine tasting.
The gala dinner which saw attendees dressed in black and white for the
James Bond theme was the highlight of the weekend.
Ms Capuana said guests were "dressed to impress", with outfits from all
the James Bond movies.
After tucking into a two-course meal, they were entertainment with a James
Bond trivia with all 19 tables competing.
"Next year's destination is yet to be announced but rumour has it we're
heading somewhere warmer," she quipped.
