I have been given the job of trying to locate accommodation for anyone who wants it for NZ champs. Some of you may have already found motel or billets but just recently I found a lodge on the side of Pirongia [little tucked away] that has BYO bedding and food type accommodation. We can book all of the 48 beds for a small cost if we have a good number of 'takers'. I have tentativly booked but I need to know if you want part of it. If I get more than 12 I will go ahead. It will cost around $20 per night each. Have a look at Pirongia Forest Park Lodge on the web [even has a video] and reply to me ASAP.
Ph 078236888 or 0273665842
PS This lodge is 7 minutes from Pirongia which will make it about 12 minutes away from the 3rd day venue and 30 to 45 minutes from the others.
