Paradise Lagoons annual campdraft cancelled for 2014 only

ORGANISERS of the 2014 Paradise Lagoons Campdraft have decided to cancel the iconic event this year out of respect for the family of late president Graeme Acton.

However, plans are already in place for next year.

Ian Lovegrove said on Tuesday there was a meeting with the Acton family and the Paradise Lagoons committee, and a decision was made to cancel the event.

Mr Lovegrove said it was too close to Graeme's death, and out of respect they decided to cancel it for this year.

"Purely out of respect for the family and their wishes, we've decided to shelve it for this year," he said.

"It will be full steam ahead for next year."

The 2015 Paradise Lagoons Campdraft will be held from July 15 to 19 next year.
