Another conference update.
THURSDAY NIGHT CONFERENCE DINNER
Conference Dinner on the Thursday night will be a buffet style dinner
has been organised for the Thursday night dinner, 6:30pm at the
Mercure Monaco Marquette. Buses will leave from The Rutherford hotel
at 6pm and return on the hour from 9 to 11pm.
There is even a pub across the road called The Honest Lawyer for those
who feel the need to move on.
I've also been asked what the plan is for the Wednesday evening.
As it happens, nothing.
In the mists of time, Wednesday night was always informally organised.
Often involving food from the sub-continent. Everyone split the bill
and basically it was Thursday Night Curry on a Wednesday night! Like
Christmas in July!
In more recent years, a specific spondsor kindly funded drinks and
nibbles on the Wednesday at many a well respected establishment.
With this in mind we placed the position of "Networking Drinks" on the
sponsorship document in case someone wanted to take up the
So far this year none of our sponsors have indicated that they would
like to take up this offer, so we will return to the default informal
arrangement of the past.
That being said there are options.
If you are a potential sponsor who would like to fund an event on the
Wednesday night, our events person Krystal (krystal(a)internetnz.net.nz)
would be more than happy to talk through the opportunities with you.
I'm also told there are some nice Indian places in Nelson
Failing that there are places that sell beer.
Basically at the moment it will be up to people to arrange their own
food/fun on Wednesday, but being the well adjusted social people I
know you all are, I'm sure this won't be a problem. If we do get a
benevolent sponsor come forward to save the Wednes-Day we'll be sure
to let you know ASAP.
