Two things to tell you!

 - Cheap Flights from Australia to Wellington!
 - Accommodation!


Cheap Flights from Australia to Wellington!
-------------------------------------------

Our Tasmanian colleague and occasionally-on-the-ground informant Chris
Neugebauer informs us that Virgin Australia are currently offering cheap
flights from Australian departure points to Wellington for flights that
fall during around around the weekend of Kiwi PyCon 2014!

So if you've been on the fence about whether to cross the ditch and come
to Wellington next month, now is the time to register!

The VA website won't let me post direct links, but it looks like you
start here:

> http://www.virginaustralia.com/au/en/specials-offers/flight-specials/view-best-fares/

And click on the 'NZ' tab. Page down to the 'lucky last' destination
Wellington and have a look at the deals on the first line:

	03 Sep, 2014 - 17 Sep, 2014

Don't spent too long thinking about it though! The sale looks like it
ends on midnight Wednesday night!


Accommodation!
--------------

Once you get to Wellington, no matter where in the world you came in
from, we think it would be great if you had a place to sleep.

Accommodation in Wellington could end up being tight on the weekend of
the conference, since there may be an influx of many, many thousands of
Rugby fans swooping in to see the All Blacks vs South Africa match on
Saturday the 13th of September[1].

We have block bookings at two hotels, one is a short bus ride from the
venue, and the other is a long bus ride from the venue (but we'll be
providing the bus).

WARNING! We will only be able to hold on to these block bookings for a
few more days, after that they will be up for grabs by the general public!

Head to http://kiwi.pycon.org/accommodation/ as soon as you can and make
sure you have a place to stay for Kiwi PyCon!


There's more to come in the next update, this is shaping up to be quite
a weekend!

Cheers!

Tom, on behalf of the New Zealand Python User Group and Kiwi PyCon 2014
