I have had some feedback from interested people, and the proposal is firmed up a bit, as follows:
Thursday 11 May 2017. Fly to Sharm El Sheikh with Thompson from Manchester (currently priced at 427 pounds inc 20 kg hold luggage, not inc meals or reserved seats). Flight cost will change as the flight books up. Return 18 May, landing 19 May Note the return flight lands about 3am.
7 Nights at Blue Beach Club in Dahab in Standard Room on Soft All Inclusive
Return Airport Transfers
6 Days Unlimited Unguided House Reef Diving
395 pounds per person sharing, Single Supplement is 50 pounds per person
Plus 10 pounds per day for 2 guided dives away from the house reef.
So total cost 872 pounds sharing, 922 pounds single, plus the cost of booze and any incidentals, if we have 5 days guided diving.
The flight will want paying for up-front. Pharaoh divers want paying for the accommodation package/diving on arrival in Dahab, they are not asking for a deposit.
I currently have interest from:
Trevor, Ann, Linda, Dave P, Nigel, Iona, George, Simon, Mark C, Sammy, but numbers are not constrained at the moment.
If you want to go, then confirm this to me. I will then reserve the accommodation in Dahab. Once the rooms are definitely available then we can book the flights. You can either do that direct on-line (I can confirm which flight) or let me have the flight money, and your proper passport name, and I will book the flights. You need to decide if you need extra hold luggage (note Thomson allow an extra 5kg for divers), flight meals, extra leg room, or booked seats (all will be extra).
Can you let me know by next Friday (7 October) if you definitely want to go, and we can proceed from there.
