From another thread How I wish we had enough collectors here in NZ to have a similar event. Nice photos and I look forward to seeing more. Thanks for posting them on site. I recon we do have enough for a small event. How about Anzac weekend next year. Only question is where do we run it? My thoughts would be either Picton or Wellington as it means those from the other island can walk onto the ferry cutting costs Are you a starter? now you have got me thinking. Perhaps Waitangi day for warmer weather might be more preferable. I would have thought you would want to bring a vehicle over on the ferry in order to bring the collection along Picton or Queen Charlotte Sound have camping grounds. If there was enough interest shown then the event could held in alternative islands each year. Be interested to know if other stovies surface for comment on the idea. Now the questions raised are Is there enough interest? Lets see who answers Where do we hold it? Obviously Wellington and Picton have the advantage of being close to the ferry so it is possible to walk onto the ferry even if that does limit the portion of collection you bring. Both have good camping grounds. When? 2 options already above but all options are still open. Shall we form a committee?
