We're all fine here. I went on geonet soon afterwards but there had been a smaller one 5min before (which I hadn't felt) - it said it was a 3.0. I was like that was not a 3! Then I refreshed again and got the 5.1 - which felt correct.

Then hopefully they can build a bigger and better laid out one. And we can paint murals of characters all over it. Though the second one may be pushing it.

LOL!!! I am such an idiot. I have been getting staff updates 3 times a week from vbase. Here is the lastest about Town hall and convention centre

Quote :
The Convention Centre and Town Hall have both suffered structural damage and work in assessing the venues is still being undertaken. It is anticipated that both venues will be closed until at least the end of 2011. We should have more information for you by the middle of next week.

I also have been getting the press release info the day before it is released to the media. I shall pay more attention to my emails from them and let you know whats happening?

Sorry guys...

So, no chchgeddon this year I guess. Ah well.

EDIT: unless anyone can think of another venue it would be held in? I don't think there's anything in chch that would hold that number of people still standing...

Noooo! It's not fair! sad Stupid earthquake. stare Hopefully they can hold it somewhere else, only thing we can do now is to wait for news, hopefully good news. If it does end up being canceled I will be sad, I will just have to make NZAE and AuckGeddon extra fun then!

@westpac area
first of all it's now changed it's name (CBS now I think?) and second of all I don't think there will be enough space. There aren't as many 'extra' rooms available.

Well they could host it there and at the Addington Raceway. The venues aren't too far away from one another.
