TGBC 2016 Camp

All the pieces are in place for the 2016 TGBC Camp to go ahead.

Now comes your part. This is a call to action.

Whether you’re an old hand or a recent addition to book club, meeting up with dudes from other chapters and revelling in all the good stuff that speaks to us collectively has always proven to be an excellent idea and memorable time. Camp, however, promises to be the apex of our social calendar to date. You need to be a part of it.

What is camp? On AFL grand final weekend, from Friday 30th September until Monday 3rd October, intrepid Tough Guys from any and all of our chapters across the country will descend upon the mighty Grampian National Park in western Victoria. We have an entire outdoor recreation camp to ourselves, including comfortable cabin accommodation. Yes, it’s a bit luxurious, but don’t let this stop you pitching a tent if you prefer the added toughness required to do so.

At camp, we will have ample outdoor and indoor space where we can light fires, kick a footy, swing a cricket bat, paddle canoes, drop a line in, climb a cliff, be flung through the air and roam through the bush. Of course, you can also simply put your feet up and get lost in a book. There are no rules or obligations. We’ll set up a big screen for the big game for anyone who wants to watch it. We’ll also be running a special camp edition of book club, book included. All food and drink is catered for. You’ll never be hungry or thirsty.

Off site, there are loads of options for hiking, fishing and taking in the spectacular sights of the surrounding mountain ranges. Those so inclined might attempt to conquer Mount Difficult which, by all accounts, is not to be sneezed at.

Camp costs $360. For this you get: • Accommodation for 3 nights in the amazing Grampians • All food for the whole camp • Cold beers for the whole camp • A free book for the camp meet • 1 flight if you live outside of VIC • Transport to and from the airport

Remember, VIC, NSW and QLD goons all have public holidays on this weekend.

There are payment plans available, however time is now a bigger consideration as the date is looming. Lock in your first payment asap. Kick this beast into gear. We also have an unwaged option. If you are unwaged or a student, or would like to discuss anything else to do with payments, please call Shay for a chat on 0425 313 395.

So what now?


As mentioned, this is a call to action. We’re now asking that you take the next step and make a payment, either part or whole. Those who know you’re going, it’s time to show us the fibre of your fabric. Those who are undecided, it’s time to ask questions, look at dates and book time off if need be. It is amazing to have confirmations from inside and beyond Victoria already and we’re excited to hear from as many of you others as can swing it. GET ON BOARD.


Hit up the event chat board on FB or email us if you’d like to know more. Get around it, lads! It’s TGBC CAMP 2016!
