    Please put me down as participating too.

    Itís the South Island. Gotta be there. I never met Toby, but followed his journey in awe and laughter. The opportunity to remember him will be an honour to share.

    The fact itís my wifeís birthday the day following is a detail I need to attend to I admit......

    Just looking at a map and it occurs to me to ask whether it would make more sense to fly in to Dunedin as it seems closer. What's the go?
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Best bet would be to fly to CHCH and rent a van/ hit up the CHCH members. Dunedin is probably closer, but imagine a lot more expensive.

    @Rushy
    Whichever gives you the best car rental deal.... or a member also attending can commit to meeting you at said airport and having sufficient boot or roof space (oh ooops I meant a spare passenger seat) to get you there safely if not sanely.

    Timaru also has a couple of flights into from wellington each day, maybe if there are some from there or close to wellington 4 could arrange a rental ex Timaru
    Just another option no idea of flight price though.

    A quick check on the Air New Zealand website says there is only twenty bucks between the cost of flights.

    I will go down a few days early to help set up so it will be my mission to find your preferred bed and short sheet it. Not that you'd notice.
