OK! I'll do that Mandie. :)

@Seraphik, RE the parking:
Quote :
We don't have our own exclusive parking but can direct you to 24 hour
free parking nearby, on street.

We have lots of people stay here who need parking for their cars and
it's rarely a problem.

Cheers :)

Why was this group/thread closed after only 2 hours of it being made? sad I still need to get accomadation sorted and I'd rather stay with other cosplayers, I prefer backpackers too. *Wants to join*

It was sorted out on twitter - we just made a thread on here to stop clogging everyone's twitter streams.

I see, I don't use Twitter so that's why I didn't know, I'm used to people forming accomadation groups here. Guess I'll have to arrange my own, thanks. Smile

If I do come I'll be snagging a lift from a mate, so I won't have my car on me. :/
What's transport between the backpackers and the event looking like? Are there bus-type-things or are we close enough to walk?

...I can't not stare at Riven_'s signature.

In any case, it was said on twitter, but I'll say it here too - Alex has been told he can't come, so I'm in for the dorm room now, rather than the private room.

....OH GOD MAKE IT STOP.

.....

bazinga.

EDIT: Question: I'm looking at flights, and wondering how long it takes to get to Dunedin Airport from the uni? There's one at 6pm I could do which would save me $50, but given that the cosplay contest doesn't finish till 5pm... Lol, do you reckon I could skedaddle after we did our skit on stage? sweatdrop

@JVCA IIRC my bro and I have flights at 7pm... I'm not sure if there's a shuttle bus service or something. Maybe the backpacker will know? I'll do a quick Google Map to see if I can find out anything...

Yeah, I did a google maps search and it says it's 35min from the uni to the airport. I'm capable of that much, the question was directed at Dunedinites for a second opinion.

@thread; it takes about 30-35 minutes to get to the airport from dunedin.

the backpackers is a wee way from the uni, there ARE university buses you can take, or you can drive. i will probably drive people because the cost of buses in dunedin is astronomical.

How long a walking distance is the backpackers to the uni? C:

And yeaaaah... Do you reckon I should get the cheaper 6pm flight and gap it as soon as we've performed our skit on the main stage, or should I fork out the extra money for the 7pm flight, you think?

i could drive you to the airport but idk if both of us can leave early? if not, a shuttle costs $20-25 so... it's up to you? D|

it takes about 10-15 minutes to walk to uni from town.

@ the dorm options
personally I would like the cheapest. So I'm all for the 8 and 10 person ones. At the moment there are 10 people on our list and Anne and I are still a maybe (I should be able to confirm within the next few days) so if there are extra people you could always get an extra room of 4/6 if need be.

Who else needs to be at the airport for a 7pm flight? I wouldn't make you leave early for me, Lucy, but it sounds like the extra hour'd be worth it both in terms of money (with shuttle costs, I'd only save $25) and a little more time with people.

You'd need to leave about 5:45pm to get to the airport for 6.30 check in, wouldn't you? NZAE closes at 5pm though. C:

I'm actually looking at flying back on monday, so if I do that I'll need sunday night as well.

EDIT: Okay, I'm deffo flying back Monday.

@Alice: Hope you don't mind - I edited the list to include what nights people are staying (that we know so far, anyway)

Oh, sweet, thanks, that saves me the trouble of finding out. Razz

@Seraphik my bro and I have a 7pm flight so that would be 2 people in your car. :O Can we "book" 2 seats in your car? XD

If I have a 7pm flight, when do I need to check in? First time flying domestic... :3
Also, my NZ passport is expired but can I still fly domestically with that?

You need to check in 30min before hand - so be checked in BY 6:30. I would try be at the airport at 6:15pm personally, in case something goes wrong.

EDIT: OKAY! Me and Steph are confirmed to be doing a private room on Sunday night. :) Alice, if you like I can book that seperately now - probably easier to book it ourselves than by proxy?

Generally they don't tend to ask for ID on domestic flights, although it is in the conditions that you may be asked. If you've got a drivers license, student it, and/or expired passport on you if they do ask it should be enough to proove you are who you say you are. That said I've never been ID'd on a domestic flight before - ever, so it's unlikely you'll have issues.

Also check with your airline what the checkin times are. Usually it's 30 mins before takeoff, but I think some may be 45? And definitely arrive early if you have bags to check.
