Yes indeed, thank you wijomas and chchkiwi for making my trip there a memorable one.

Finally made it home, after many many many failed attempts, but it all worked out fantastically!

Thank you all.

Thanks for coming all - great to see you all again and a huge thanks to chchkiwi for helping (read - doing all of the research) with the DO.

The "rugby royalty" and I all made it on the direct flight to Auckland after a few "issues" with the BHE-WLG flight...

Until next year (which may be sooner than you think !)

Interestingly... my BHE-AKL flight credited as BHE-WLG

Thanks all.

It was great.

We finally made it home last Thursday afternoon after a very long day.

We were very lucky on arrival in MEL. We taxied in at 0830 (15 min early), went straight through Smartgate, bags arrived quickly and outside without any delays. Caught the Skybus at 0850 and arrived in Melbourne at 0925 with just enough time to catch the 0930 train home.

I'd like to add my thanks also. A very pleasant evening to wind up a great weekend to which everyone contributed by showing up and enjoying an especially nice part of NZ. Thanks all!

It appears that the guys who broke in to the River Queen boat the night before we were on it have been arrested... after leaving their camera full of pictures of themselves behind.
