    It would also be great if we could book a function room or something and have a big party together

    Well you can just save up to come along and food stuff. I can bring a spare fabric tail or two and a spare fin. Don't know which spare fin yet, most likely the foil, which I am receiving soon. I got a S size foil, fits ladies shoe size 6-9.

    If you're interested, I'm selling my old Merfin. You can find details here.

    I can't book mine just yet. My cousin's wedding takes precedence over this. And he's not set a date, all we were told was, "Sometime in 2015".

    Or share a room...

    For everyone worrying about booking right now, you can all calm down because they're not even taking bookings for next January anyway. It's only to December at the moment so it's a 12 months in advance thing. Also remember it's not until 2016, so you have all year to save for it. But I agree, renting a function room even for a night would be most awesome!

    lol @Jaffa at least I have a decent if loud singing voice lol if I can convince people its okay to go to something with people I don't know in person! Sigh arguement so far is its in a hotel in a public place will have our own rooms no need to say if we share lol and that its for 2 days for a mer fest and it could be a new chance for me to make friends with people who share the same interests as me Just hope it works lol wish me luck!

    My plan is as soon as you can book and we are happy with the dates I will book/pay for my two rooms and then book flights later when a special pops up and I'm happy to share a room if need be

    Have been told I can come if I bring along someone else Just till I get to know you all so now to find someone else to come along To be honest though they may not be as much mermaid happy as I am though lol but guess I have to hope and wait and see After that I can come alone. Sigh 28 years old with a disability and people are still looking out for me and don't want me meeting new people alone even though they are all ladies :P Just have to hope the person I asked says they will go as I really want to come to this and thanks to mermaid Jaffa I will have the offer of a tail to try out at it! Which I so want to do and think will be so much fun!

    I will also bring a softer fin like the Fin Fun because you just said you are disabled. And well, I don't want to get in trouble if I bring a harder one and you... er... can't swim in it.

    But I'll bring them both and you can try! I wear a ladies size 12 tail, if not the same size, just borrow the fins.

    Well I have Asbergers syndrome and a ankle injury right now that is recovering that I am in a brace for! Just dont go away from home much but really want to go to this lol And thanks sounds amazing! I am a size 61/2 foot usually! I really want to come Thanks At least after the first time when I get to know you guys if I can come I will be able to come alone! But being able to try both sounds great thanks a ton! Particulary since I want to meet others with the same interests as me or similar etc!

    Another thing we may want to consider is possibly doing this during the week? I'm just looking at prices and using December as a bit of a guide and doing it during the week it can save $40 a night. I mean it's just an idea. I don't know how flights work either if they're cheaper during the week or not? Since it's the holidays I wasn't sure if the fact it's a week day mattered too much or not, though I'm aware people will likely have to take work off if it's a week day. But I'm assuming dates will be discussed at more of a length once they actually become available in like a month or so. Also I believe they may offer discounts if we need 10 rooms or more so that may also be something we want to think about.

    Oh my god you guys. This sounds amazing. Can I come?!?!! My husband's from Townsville and his brother lives near the Gold Coast, and I think we might plan to go back to Aus in 2016 for his mum's 60th birthday anyway. I'm going to try to convince him to make a side trip!!!

    The Gold Coast is pretty warm all year so I personally think we could pick any time of the year and we'd still be alright.

    Theobromine: Of course! Anyone from around the world would be able to join in, so long as you can get there!

    Well I'll probably being both of my tails down (should have my new Merbella one by then so I'll have a full silicone and a partial one) and if you're a short size 10 I'd be more than happy to lend the basic out as well as both of my monofins- a finis tempo (size like 6 I think) and a medium finis trainer 2 (up to size 9)

    Aww thanks I would love that take normally a size 10 to 12 in pants And I am a short person lol :P I just really want to do this would be a dream! Thanks
