This is a very quiet little note to say that entries are not open as we may not be able to hold this event this year. When I say we, I really mean me as Big Hill Events despite how it looks is a pretty boutique company run for the love of providing better events to the participants. Sadly though over the years whilst I tried to become bigger and employed staff the operating costs were never covered though and having never drawn any money from the company over 9 years and made substantial losses it became time for me to assess where all this was going. Working 60hr weeks and enduring the stress of an events company on top of my design company is just not sustainable. Its been amazing hosting these events and we hope to be able to see them continue in some way, but for now we are putting some things on hold starting with this event. Its upsetting to have come to this but you just never know what the future holds. We thankyou for your support though the years. Especiall the local town, Pyrenes shire, Avoca Primary Scool, Avoca Golf Club, DELWP, Mount Avoca Winery and of course my parents for their amazing Feed Zone at the top of the hill work.
