I set up a group for wheelchair users, people with disabilities, carer''s and friends through an international organization called Meetup. One of our planned fun outings was to go and play bingo one Sunday afternoon at the Crown Casino in Melbourne. There were going to be 2 able bodied dear friends of mine coming along, 2 crazy but fabulous able bodied friends who hired manual wheelchairs for the day coming along in those, as well as another Meetup member who sadly fell ill that day, as well as me of course.
I had called Crown and thoroughly did my homework before going so that we'd all be ok and things would run smoothly, however they didn't. Without going into any more detail, below is the link to the page on the website called FUNNY STORIES where you'll be able to follow the trail of emails in which the first email will describe what went wrong, and where things went from there. Enjoy :)
In a wheelchair permanently since early 2010 due to a disease called NMO. I am loving getting out and about in my wheels. My blogs capture my journey.
