May be worth subbing this thread to make sure you keep up with details.
Oh, and make sure to drop a line in the thread here so we can plan and coordinate and just generally be excited about the first opportunity to do this here in NZ!
UPDATE: Date and venue confirmed!

I can now confirm the date and venue - Saturday the 24th of May at the Fickling Convention Centre (Hillsborough Room) in Three Kings in Auckland (see in Google Maps).
Nice clean modern venue with very ample parking (somewhat of a rarity in Auckland) and some nice amenities like cafe and pub nearby.
Now that time and place are confirmed, and there is a more solid platform to build on I can launch into the next stages of planning.
Naturally I will keep you informed of further developments as they take shape.
