Spread over the week of the Conference, we have a number of social activities planned:
- Conference Welcome Barbecue – join us on Sunday evening for an informal get-together to kick off the Conference at Reece High School in the Canteen area;
- New Year’s Eve on the Foreshore of Devonport – fireworks displays at 9.30pm and midnight; food vendors, face painting, a jumping castle plus, for those over 18, a “wet area” (NOTE: no BYO alcohol and this is a non-smoking event);
- A special showing of the movie Sixteen Legs, written by Niall Doran (see the trailer here) – all you wanted to know about the sex life of cave spiders – “must see” for both cavers and non-cavers ;
- Speleo Sports & Prusik Challenge, the Committee will be coming up with some innovative caving and prusiking challenges;
- Silent Auction – bargains to be had! items are on display with a bidding sheet in front of them, everyone can see the bids, and all it takes is for someone to come along and outbid the bidder to walk away with a bargain;
- Photographic Competition – Presentation of all entries followed by announcement of the winners. Don’t forget to vote for the People’s Choice award.
- Trivia night; and
- To conclude the Conference a Cavers Dinner (theme: Bedrock city; home of the Flintstones).
