    i remember about 6 or 7 years ago, heaps of places closed down because of new insurance laws. bowling alleys, laser tag places, all sorts. i don't know exactly what the changes were, but i know insurance became a lot more expensive.

    Yeah, the whole financial industry went through an overhaul because there were so many cowboys out there. All it did was mean the price of everything went up and if there was even the slightest elevation of injury risk, you could expect to pay through the nose. For example, if you had a factory with 30 workers, 15 in manufacturing and 15 in the office doing administration, ALL the workers were required to have Workers Compensation at the manufacturing rate, the law does not distinguish the administration side. There are ways to get around it, like set up another company to purely do your administration, but it is a hassle. It is no wonder businesses just closed rather than have to go through the red tape labyrinth that is the NSW State Government.

    I made some phone calls this morning before work - basically the first couple of brokers I called couldn't cover us for just a day, so I'm still looking. If prices are ridiculous, perhaps we should organise it in another state?

    I wouldn't mind travelling down on the train for the day or whatevs. So the guys who own your joint would be cool with it if we were to potentially have it here?

    It could be done so no one has to rush, get a couple of weekend stay apartments and everyone cruise down Friday night, Throwdown on Saturday, for those who drink have a couple on the Saturday evening, leisurely drive back Sunday morning, possibly after breakfast and hitting the beach (depending on when we can organise it). Just a suggestion.

    If we do it off peak holiday season those apartments could be cheap as, then again, off peak means no beach. I understand this might not be financially viable for some people, but I might be willing (and able, my dad has one of those Australia wide timeshare things that he never uses and is constantly trying to foist a holiday on me) to look into alternatives if this sounds like a good option for everyone.

    Alright guys,how keen are you?.
    It looks like I have a venue.
    It's Dragonfist Freestyle at Kirrawee.
    I just got off of the phone with the senior instructor & all is good.
    Guys.this is no internet lie-fest.I had 2 call him back to make sure of my facts as I'm just out of knee surgery ( & bombed on meds ) & unsure of my availability for a TD,but I've called in some favours & now all that is needed is a timeframe.
    Bear in mind that I am asking a favour from someone who is asking a favour from a friend.
    Lets have some dates guys.
    Venue access in NSW is a bitch.
    I have fixed that,personal liability waivers only.

    Give me dates & I'll go further.
