The event makes sense to be there though I did like the layout of the current one is all. And while the Organizers have years of experience I remember the mess wellygeddon was when it first switched venues, sadly hasn't improved all that much. Even more sadly, with all the experience in the world you can't tell how things are going to be when filled with hundreds of people when you're arranging something on paper.

I could be wrong and this will be the best event ever, but I do expect a loss in numbers (not talking dedicated fans of geddon events but more the family groups who don't feel like the effort to travel out of town, or people who are from outside of auckland who are now lacking travel or accomidation) though it won't be a noticable loss to us.

I'm looking forward to it but at the same time the annoyance of needing to travel out has put me off greatly being that I'm outside Auckland.

The only problem i had with ACB was the noise and poor ventalation. The room, facilities and location was everything that i wanted and more.

Im not so keen on this venue change. I guess it will be a matter of waiting and seeing, but from my past experiance of the showgrounds, i'm just not sure that it will suit armageddon that well.

I guess we will see. No more walking to whatever takeout place is close by, AFAIK, the only food store within 5min walking distance are dairies and a health food store and a bottle store.

And any backpackers out there will require transport to Armageddon, no more 5min walk.


I do like the Easter show, and they always seemed to be able to full the space with interesting stuff, i guess armageddon will just have more on offer, along with more crap i dont really care about ;)

Edit by mod: please don't double post. gonk hit the edit button instead.

i wouldnt call greenlane out of town. in fact its probably easier to get in to then the city is.

Yeah, ACB was a bit of a frustration, but it's always hard to tell in advance.

As far as I can tell from a (very) quick search the nearest hostel type place to the showgrounds is in Epsom. So it's going to be a bit of a walk.

Do any of the Auck locals know how far the train/bus is from the showgrounds?

I'm having mixed feelings about this though. Uhhh..... Happiness for bigger space but also sadness because it's always been at Aotea Centre and it's like... habit shattering? I dunno how to describe it. DX

I am in two minds about this.

On one hand I do love the ASB showgrounds and holding it at somewhere so big will be great!! Cause it was definitely crowded this year.

On the other hand being in town was very convenient. Like transport wise and also there was the arcade and the foodcourt. Getting to showgrounds will be a lot harder for me!

Plus I will miss being next to Aotea Square. We will need to find somewhere else to have epic fight and caramelldanssen!!

Still I guess it is pretty cool.

The showgrounds have large grassy areas all over the place - it should be fine. Very Happy We can find one. n_n

I'm lame~

wah idk. It's further away, harder to get to, harder to get to everything else from there (limited resources), harder to stash things at apartments/backpackers or pull of halfsies. Many more but I cbf right now DX;;

But personal issues have made me grumpy so m. Haha. What is the ASB's stage area like?

I guess I don't like change. I should be happy come Geddon.

Yeah, for me it's a mixed bag. I know it's more accessible for me, but it's *definitely* not for others, and what we gain in extra space, we lose almost exponentially in nearby facilities. It'll be interesting to see how it turns out - I don't think Bill should have booked it years in advance, just in case it's not the right setting for geddon.

I don't remember what it's like on the inside, but apparently the main stage will be the Logan Campbell Theatre... http://www.asbshowgrounds.co.nz/venue_options/logan_campbell_centre.html ZOMG! I do vaguely remember it -- last thing I saw there was a Tiny Teddies (like, the cookies) promotional stage performance when I was like, 6 or something! XDDD Wow, I'd totally forgotten! Unfortunately, everything seems huge when you're 6, so I don't think I can use it as an accurate gauge of size...

Hmm it dont sound to bad then.

As long as there are grassy areas or something for us to have our crazy spontaneous things!!

I think I remember that stage... *thinks*

And apparently a bus goes from near my house to right outside it so overall I have decided I dont mind this much at all.

Even if geddon does/will have its own section of arcade kinda stuff, it'll probably be just a few games and wont they... like, always be in use? stare

also its not just that, I'm really gonna miss going to the plaza, so much fun has been had visting there during armageddon with everyone... it was beginning to feel like a tradition whee

ah well~
hopefully this new bigger place will have it being just as good, if not better then before.
