Hi,

I'm moving to NZ in the next few days so I would love to join you and meet new friends. Just had my CS going away party last night so looking forward to meeting the local CSers in Tauranga.

Not sure what my work schedule will be like then but if I'm free I will definitely join.

See you soon!

Looking forward to seeing you all. Will post up details a few weeks before the winter feast.

Warwick - Can't wait to hear all your travel stories!

Aggie - Welcome to NZ when you get here. Would be lovely to have you over and meet the rest of the CS'ers.

Hi Francois,

Would be cool if you can come along - if your partner can come later then the more the merrier.

See you then :)

Hi there guys, nice to see you are putting together a nice meeting. Still quite early to confirm (1 month!), but sounds good, and so far I'm in.
See ya!

Hey Carol,
It sounds lovely, I love pot luck dinners.
If it's on a Saturday I'm probably going to come alone as my girlfriend's nights off are Sunday and Monday.
See you guys soon,
François

Hi Grant and Carol,
Sorry for this late message. I have just come back from National Park. Don´t know if you heard about the car accident a few days ago. One of the guys was a friend of ours; yesterday we took off with some others to go help, assist and support the people over there, and cry with them. All very shocking and sad. Have slept 2 hs, driven 700 kms, and still quite shocked myself. Won´t make it tonight. And it seems some other people have pulled out as well. Hope you still gather quite a few, and have a great evening. Nice of you guys to organize this.
Sorry again.
Cheers.

Diego

Posted July 14th, 2012 - 8:07 pm by from Auckland, New Zealand (Permalink)
Hey Diego,

No probs at all - glad you were able to lend support and help to your friends. We hope you are ok and got some rest.

We all had a lovely evening and a few people were asking after you - so you were missed!

Hope everything goes ok with you friends.
