The Programme

Here’s the programme for our weekend of celebrations. Registration can be done on-line here. There’s a charge of $100 per person (18 years and over) for the weekend. This charge includes the dinner on Saturday. Whanau under the age of 18 years also need to register (so we can plan our catering), but they can come free of charge to all the events except the dinner on Saturday night.
