Another ChCh (NEW ZEALAND) DS Fest???

Is anyone interested in another one? I think Nov-Dec sort of time would be good. Even Jan 2015 would be great.

I know there has been some interest from at least two or three Aussies and also some guys from Auckland and the Welly boys would probably be keen...

Always super keen but depends on family/ work schedule which looks a bit crowded this year. Can't call it till close to the time. Desperate Togo anywhere with wind. None here!

Keen - but hard to tell if I can get that sort of time away from the family for 'playing with toys' that close to the Nationals.

I wish..... (Then again my wife wants a "family" holiday)

Alex post some defined dates early like we did for the first DS fest it helped everyone plan and also locks in your time.

Hmm give this thread another couple of weeks, and if interest is there, I will post some dates. Would be good to get a lot of guys here, if that happens I will take a couple of weeks off work too
