This was discussed at the Committee meeting in June, with the thought being to catch the 8am Sailing on Friday Morning, this allows a relaxed Drive Thursday Arvo, or an all nighter, if preferred, getting us to Ohakune for a restful Friday Night and the beginning of a great weekend.

New Matters:
Discussed travel to Nats from South and decided on 8am Friday Sailing, with a Cruise leaving Christchurch Thursday Arvo. Return crossing Monday 1:30pm, Vaughan to update thread.
Hayden to check how to make bookings to get "Group' discount on BlueBridge.

I haven't yet, we get a discount if 5 or more cars, I will have to check on the easiest way to this with them. Looks like Bluebridge is the cheaper option.


Any updates of the 'secret password' for the group booking discount with bluebridge?

also, is anyone thought any further on sharing accommodation?
