RASNZ Conference

RASNZ's 2016 Conference will be held in Napier and hosted by the Hawke's Bay Astronomical Society and held 20 - 22 May 2016.  The Conference venue will be MTG Hawke's Bay, Napier's recently reopened museum, theatre and art gallery.  The Conference will be followed by a two day astrophotography workshop.

Watch this space for further details as they come to hand.

For those wanting to attend conference next year, I suggest making plans for accommodation sooner rather than later. There is also a marathon being held in Napier that weekend, so hotel rooms are likely to sell out.
