    im in for 22nd
  5. I have booked the Akitio community hall for Saturday the 22nd Nov 2014, sleeps upto 48 people in dorm rooms.

    The plan will be head out saturday for a ride, stay in the community hall which is fully self contained, then get rid of the hangover by getting back on the water sunday.

    If any people need accomidation friday we can sort something out as a few of us may head out friday night

    please let me know if anyone is interested

  7. Flan bringing your own banjo would be recommended. But I am out there tonight and have spoken to a local farmer and he has agreed to loan you something off the farm for $5 a night

    Great, hopefully get out of work around 4:30 and start driving straight from there. Stopping in Palmy for the night would be good, splits up the drive

    I'm going to be the first to admit I have no idea what you're talking about. Is this the native equivalent of simply "catching fish"? Or some other sea activity?. I even went as far as searching for it on the website (Yes - believe it or not there is a website for our native tongue haha). The result didn't help:

    1.(noun) seafood, shellfish.
    Ānō he karoro e topa ana i runga i ngā kaimoana (TP 12/1903:4). / Like a black-backed gull soaring above seafood.
  17. Just going for a dive for paua/ crafish / fish. Just something else to do if there isnt much surf but surf looking ok

    This is because you are a dumb white boy with no respect for Tungatofenowa. Loosely translated it means.. Send the wife up the road for fish and chips. If she refuses get her to cook some eggs. She will never refuse to do that... It is a great culture once you get to understand it.
