Rotorua Branch 33 invites NZART members and their guests to the weekend activities in Rotorua.

Come and visit New Zealand Coolest Hotspot.

The venue for this years conference is the Sudima Hotel located in Rotorua City/Geothermal Paradise.

There is generous parking available at the venue during the day, and night, for cars and moderate sized vehicles. Motorhomes and similar can park during the day but will need other facilities at night. An NZMCA park is located at Ngongotaha and other overnight parking is available in various spots reasonably close to Rotorua City.

All conference proceedings will be accommodated at the Sudima Hotel and reasonable room rates are available for those wishing to stay at the Hotel. Please quote “NZART Conference” if booking with the special rates.

General Registration
Registration details will be advised in due course, but the cost and procedures will be in line with recent conferences.

Accommodation
Rotorua is a tourist town and this Holiday weekend will have the usual pressure on accomodation and facilities, so please book early. However, very reasonable (price and quality) accomodation is available at the Sudima Hotel so book early and quote “NZART Conference”. There are many other options available within an easy distance of the venue. Accomodation reservations must be made by the attendees as we are unable to book accomodation.

Motorhome parking at the venue is allowed during the day but night parking, while sleeping in the MH, will require you to arrange for one of the other local spots where this activity is permitted. It seems likely that a (limited) “taxi” service will be provided by local members. Camping grounds and overnight MH stays are not difficult to find in and near Rotorua.

Raffles
We have arranged for raffle prizes and are in the process of organising our main raffle, smaller quick draw raffles and spot prizes.

Thermal Pools
The well known Polynesian Pools are very close to the Conference venue and a range of public and private pools are available. Bring your appropriate costumes. The Sudima Hotel has a heated swimming pool and two private pools available for guests.

Communication
We look forward to seeing a good turnout in June 2017 and we will update this general information as and when details are firmed up. We anticipated that this publication format will be maintained and regularly updated along with appropriate information in Break In.
Rotorua has two 2m repeaters 144.350 (Linear) and 147.350. The National link is expected to be operating again before the end of 2016 along with a new D-Star hotspot.
