I am investigating which line you will need (one of the North ones), but the website is going very slow right now. I suspect there are a lot of people making alternative arrangements!!!

Love to be with you but NZ calls and its a language I understand, not like all that wibbling, anti-spin, atom (mis)guided, mayhem you speak.
Respect to the Bluey, Spheculist, Loki and Canadian crew. Say hi to Dom too (only found out he was going/coming today - you gonna have a blast and send Poi and Staff into the strato-sphere and I here in NZ playing dress up Red Polka for the show on Sunday me-thinks, I may have persuaded my new flat mate (yes he owns the flat!!) to guest star in the dress with me red top-er for an ensemble piece, not sure wether the red-bikini's coming out - but heh if that what the public want!?!.........
or is that them running screaming for the police?
Does any one know what im talking about - answers on a police car please to: what is the address in this place anyway!!!??

IF anyone is impulse coming, that is still possible.. we are not online at the venue though so just turn up and ask to speak to Gabe or any of the other jolly greeters! If there is no one at the scout hall, just walk down the driveway next to it to the Rec Centre at the back of the school. All good!
I'm going back there now to watch the pretty flames!
