All good my man. just the irony of it was hilarious to me seeing as my other half has repeatedly been frustrated with my total and utter lack of wanting to plan ahead.

Good work Dick - I'm not against the idea of a catchup on the 23rd as I'll still be in town (unsure if I'll be at the show).

No doubt we'll cover it night 1 and then tell the weirdos we're meeting at the imperial and the good cunts the actual meeting spot for night two.

So in that case if anyone is keen for a beer night 2, sounds like I'll be at the imperial :lol:

haha! cheers fellas, i opted out of night 2 in 2001 Lateralus tour, Brixton Academy in London for a job interview (for a pub job lol) one of my biggest regrets. couldn't do it again. Hopefully see you then.

I got sick of the crap here a few years ago, with a few members (who have all moved on) and i've stayed pretty quite on this forum since but i'm always lurking and will be great to finally meet to you all.

Yeh we pretty much did the whole thing. The entire island is fucking amazing. Was a bit of luck we got to see we at coast and able Tasman. We changed our whole itinerary a month before the holiday coz trinity roots announced 20 year anniversary show at Christchurch. Changed our entire plan so could get to that. Awesome holiday.

Corromandel on north island is mint.

Might be a stupid question, but do we have an area or table booked at Beer Deluxe for the 22nd meetup?

another possibly stupid question? i'm anticipating there could be other tool fans also prepping, will there be something to identify the group? ya, know maybe a secret password? sign or name tags with our usernames..."hello my name is...." that'd be funny
