I am in Island Bay about 3 blocks from the Ocean. The South wind is just pounding here today. You are correct though, When we get wind like this in Wisconsin during the winter it takes your breath away, So this is nothing compared to that. But we are talking about a -30 degree C windchill temps not 10 degrees. I am sure the weather for the GTG will be a beautiful day with blue skies warm air and plenty of sunshine.

I just spent some more time down by the bays. Very nice view today, Huge Waves crashing on the rocks. The white caps of the mountains on the south island in contrast with the very blue sky Gotta say WOW! I can not wait to get my camera gear here, as some of it is being shipped and the rest I will pick up when I go back to the states at the end of the month, Once I get it all here, I am going to join the Ribbon Hogs. wooot!!! Well at least win one.

I don't think I'll get down for the conference but if the GTG is planned well enough in advance I might be able to get some cheap flights down ... if it's a weekday maybe I can convince the boss I need a work trip down there then too ;)

A bump to remind everyone bout this, registrations are flowing in ( I'm in charge of them ! ) Judi's workshop is quite popular. It would be a great chance for some DPCers to get together.........

My hand is up for a GTG either before or after. Anyone like Japanese food? I know an awesome little Cafe that has great sushi.

Like I said above, I can make a GTG, Wont be able to make it for the Course. But looking forward to a wonder around Wellington with some DPC Folk. I have this thread on Watch and will work closer with you all via email etc when the date gets a bit closer. Not too far off now!!!...
09/05/2009 05:00:28 PM · #91
Awesome. Okay...so there is the course dates for anyone that wants to come along. But we are also organising a GTG after the course (at the same location as the course) as well as a GTG in Auckland a few days later....so who wants to put their name down for one of those locations?

That is what I am still trying to figure out. I know that at the beginning of this thread there were a few people that put their hand up for the Auckland GTG...I haven't had the time lately to fish them all out. If you could have a look through and get the ball rolling...that would be great.

I would probably be in for an Auckland GTG
