The following is a broad outline of the schedule of major events leading up to and beyond the start of GODZone. This is only intended as a guide to proceedings, is subject to change and more specific information will be provided in the Newsletters that are released periodically in the build up to the event start. As ever, we encourage you to book accommodation and flights as early as possible. The event is running at a very busy time of year for Tasman District so be proactive in getting yourself organised.

International teams should plan to arrive a day or two earlier to ensure that all international connections are made and any baggage issues addressed. Please take time to look at the transport options available on the International Teams page.
