Shame this is all coming together with little planning time. We had to book early to get some cheap deals as we had been warned that accomodation was tight with other family events on locally, being Easter hols. Flights and accomodation are never cheap to change. Happy Xmas.

And if your really sneeky, missed the deadline, and still want to come to Nationals down South, you might just be able to try the online entry thing... I tried the first two pages and they worked so might be worth a try!

Is anybody leaving Auckland on the afternoon of Thursday the 1st April or the morning of Friday the 2nd April, who would be willing to take a few calendars down to nationals for the JWOC team?
If you can help out then can you please send me an email at

I really, really need help getting the JWOC fundraising calendars down to nationals.
If you are leaving on Thursday night/Friday morning from Auckland and can take a few calendars - even as your hand luggage, it would be a huge help!
Either reply to the thread below or send me an email,
Rachel Goodwin
