Nationals 2015 Accomodation

Recommended Posts

Just a brief summary on accomodation options available for those travelling outside of Auckland:

1) Camp on site

There is an option for all to stay on site overnight - field owner is happy for us to do so.

There are toilets on the field, and there is no extra cost to you - bring your own tent and sleeping gear and you should be sweet.

2) Camp in Parakai

There is an option to pitch your tent in Parakai Camp

Price is $12.00 per person, and has a shower and a full kitchen

3)We are also working on getting a hall for us - update will follow shortly

Any feedback from you is more than welcome guys.

Hi Nathan :) We thought that would be a preference for most people, but having a couple of extra options is always handy :) In saying that, gentlemen - please start signing up and bring your friends. We want 300 people on the field this year to make it an event to remember

Copy that.

If I can get everyone to have it together on time we'll aim to be there before it gets dark

Thanks.

Does the option to stay overnight at the field extend to the Sunday night as well? Would be good if we didn't have to leave on Sunday.
