I was wondering if anyone had any specific suggestions for accommodation for QB weekend.

Although the company at the accommodation organized by Jamie sounds wonderful, given that it is close to the middle of winter and there is a night event on the Saturday night I am really not keen on adding to my carbon debt any further by travelling a long way for what will amount to no more than a couple of hours of daylight enjoying the venue! (Beside the carbon debt, my stomach is not in peak condition for long car trips, even if Kaia staying at home means that I woulddn't have to listen to how her stomach hurt the whole way!)

We booked a room at Bryce Rock Climbing only two days ago
Its also on the edge of the map.
Self contained room but you need to bring sleeping bags
$58 As Martin mentioned I also got the info from the entry form

For people who like to do things a bit flash, there's Out In The Styx (I think it's called) at Pukeatua which is not very far as the crow flies from Wharepapa but prob about a 15 minute drive around the edge of the map to get to our access point. The times I've stayed there have been taxpayer-funded-junkets - sorry - important meetings - so no idea of the cost but they have a range of accom from bunkrooms to v. flash. And you will be very very very well fed.

Martin, yes I knew there was something under accommodation but some of these were for big group camps so I was trying to find out if anything like that had been booked and we could stay where "everyone" was staying. And yes there was by Mike Beveridge. The chocolate fish prize for first reply (to my email) came from Jason Markham. Robbie, I'll also get a couple of chocolate fish for you for second prize and because I think we owe you more than that!
