What is BushBall?
"World's best ball in New Zealand's finest bush"
As any established society VUWTC also organises its own an annual ball. The trip is purely a social one, and as the name suggests it's a party in the bush. What you can expect is fantastic time, an amazing setup, cool people, and magnificent costumes, so in other words a party of a lifetime!
BushBall is a themed party, so costume / dressup is required as this makes it more fun! More ridiculous / clever your costume is the better :P
Theme: Island Adventures
(Think about Hawaii, other Pacific Islands, Survivor maybe?, Surfing, etc.)
The trip is open to anyone, not just for VUWTC members.
Note that spaces are limited!
How to get there:
Meetup at Hunter Car Park on Saturday afternoon. The drive to the location takes about an hour.
The walk is easy and only takes about 2h, or 3h if you're slow.
There will be transport & shelter provided.
If you wish to be part of the setup crew, and get there a bit earlier please let us know!
Also if you have a car available, please let us know as this helps with organising the transport.
Note that meetup time is subject to change!
Warm clothes, waterproof jacket, head torch, pack, sleepingbag, bedroll, costume in accordance to the theme!
Food & beverages:
You need to bring your own food (dinner + breakfast & snacks).
Please do not bring glass bottles as they tend to break and are heavy to carry!
There will be deticated sober people with fluorecent vests who you can turn to if you have any issues.
We will have first aid kits & PLBs with us just in case.
If you need any medication, make sure that you bring it with you.
We'll be returning to Wellington on Sunday afternoon.
Cost: $30 - Includes transport & walking goon.
