WELCOME FUNCTION - 5.30pm, Wednesday 29 August

The convention starts with a Welcome Function in the Chateau Tongariro for all delegates and partners. With most people travelling via car to get to the Chateau, drinks and nibbles are welcomed, along with the opportunity to catch up with old friends as well as network with those we may only meet once a year.

We would like to thank ASCC for sponsoring the Welcome Function and providing everyone with a chance to start the convention in a positive way.

QUIZ NIGHT - 7pm, Wednesday 29 August

The Quiz Night is an extremely enjoyable way to start the Convention. Brenntag started this back in 2013 and the event has become more popular each year. Everyone is invited, and we encourage you to make up a team and enjoy the fun.

The night is lead by the fantastic Quiz Master Damian Hond, and his Brenntag team will be keeping tally of the results and monitoring the
teams! The Quiz starts at 7pm, and will run for around 2 hours.

Special thanks to Brenntag for sponsoring, organising and running this fantastic event!

THURSDAY 30 AUGUST - 6.30pm Conference Dinner

We finish the full day's sessions with the convention dinner. This year, the theme is Expeditions & Explorations.

Don't be limited by the main image for the dinner - Expeditions & Explorations can relate to any expedition - be it jungle, mountain, river, artic or Antarctic, sea, cave, desert and even outer space...

When you think about it, a bush walk can be an expedition.

We look forward to seeing the plethora of outfit ideas that our delegates come up with.

To ensure the evening is a fantastic event, there will be a great band, and prizes for the best outfits!

FRIDAY 31 AUGUST - 6.30pm Dinner in the Ruapehu Room, Chateau Tongariro

This is a great way for those people staying on for the Friday night, or even the weekend, to network and catch up with people who you may see only once a year.

Everyone just orders off the menu, and we pay our own bills.

Friday Night - Movie Night at the Chateau

Beyond the Edge, a docudrama about Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay’s historical ascent of Mount Everest
in 1953. (No charge for this.)
