every year i drive up, but am usually in charge of organising 2 full carloads, so booking tickets, gas, accomodation, parking, the list goes on.

but usually a $30-40 gas to and from hamilton $5 for earlybird parking and if we stay at a backpackers (the base, etc) then about $25 per night.

its hell to organise more than 3 people, especially since people always take forever to make their minds up about something sad

And depending on how extreme you are, 100-300 for merchandise. Or more if you're some people.. haha.

Yes im very worried about the food bill T.T maybe i'll live 2min noodles all weekend lol
^_^ and im fine when it comes to buying stuff, i spend like $30 on manga if im lucky lol

Depends wether you can find a local supermarket and get supplies.

[EDIT BY MOD: Please don't double post - just hit the edit button. ;D]

So have people booked yet? Just I know that Anna (our lovely and friendly co-judge) is a travel agent, and may be able to do some reasonable deals?

Depending on where you're staying, I can suggest a (semi-)local supermarket either way. In Greenlane, there's a countdown a street over from where Geddon is held (about a 20 minute+ walk from geddon though, so how convenient it is is arguable), and if you're staying in the city there's a foodtown or something on the waterfront near britomart.

We're staying here: http://www.epsommotel.co.nz, chiefly because it states it's only a 5 minute a walk to the ASB Showgrounds (I am a lazy lazy woman)

Reno check the jetstar, pacific blue, air nz, etc websites for the cheapest fares, avoid the agents fares. Failing that I will look up Anna's username for you. Also have you sorted accommodation?

Yea I've been looking up all the different internet sites for prices and I think the cheapest I could get was like $280 return.

Will be starting a seperate thread soon, be PM me if interested, this is my and Fred choice of Accomodation

Abella Court Motel, Greenlane Road, just opposite the Asb/Geddon site! 24 hour reception for those who don't end up with the keys. If we get five people per room at $150 a room, then it's $30/room/night. A little more than a backpackers, but no bus fare each day to the venue. Also any time you need to repair a costume, change, stow your purchases, sleep off a migraine or what ever it is just across the road. Plenty of room to change. If we get enough people we will segregate the rooms so we don't have to wait for somewhere to change. And full kitchen, so we can buy food, no crap tasting unhealthy $6 a small pottle of chips. And since it is so close you can take smaller bags to geddon. We will have our own rooms so gear will be secure, no need for lockers during the day. Also very convenient stumbling distance after the ball.

Downside (vs backpackers) is that we need five per room to keep the cost down. Max of 20 people at that price so we can't host all of CNZ!

You can state interest, but I need 100% confirmed bookings please.

Bonus you get the lovely FRED to entertain you with a 24hr non stop juggling show!

(Legal disclaimer, parts of the above statement may not be 100% true.)

I think we up to eight now?
