30 April 2020
Breaking news in this newsletter - the big topic of the day being the postponement of the NZ Mega 2020 event. It was a really tough call for the team to make, but we feel it was the right decision. The newsletter goes into some detail about the reasoning behind it and answers some burning questions we know will come up as a result.
Also in this newsletter, some tips for coping with lockdown and we also announce a special YouTube live-stream to celebrate GC45's 20th birthday coming up on May 12. This replaces the "First NZ and First Outside the US" event that was going to be held near Rotorua on May 12, which can no longer go ahead due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation and alert level. Geocaching YouTubers thecuriouskiwis are hosting the live-stream for us, and there is guaranteed to be a great surprise, so make sure you tune in at 10am NZST on the 12th of May!
Breaking News - NZ Mega 2020 Postponed
30 April 2020
In the latest newsletter, the NZ Mega Team announce that the NZ Mega 2020 event has been officially postponed to 2021 due to the ongoing effects of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. This has been an extremely tough decision to make, but it is one that has become necessary in order to guarantee the NZ Mega 2020 event can be run safely, responsibly and inclusively for everyone who wants to attend from within New Zealand, Australia, and the rest of the world.
It has become apparent that continuing with the original plan posed significant risks for the event, with the risk of ongoing travel restrictions, quarantine, and limits on public gatherings such that a great many of those who wanted to attend would not be able to. We couldn't bear the thought of having this celebration without you all being able to be here with us, so this has become the most sensible course of action.
The NZ Mega 2020 event will be postponed to Labour Weekend 2021 - 22nd to 25th October 2021.
Newsletter #6 - Easter!
13 April 2020
It's been a wee while since our last newsletter, but it's fair to say that a lot has been going on - both at NZ Mega HQ, and around the world. We sure do hope everyone is staying safe and sane through these trying and stressful times!
In this newsletter we bring you some updates on the NZ Mega 2020 event geocoin, and planning of the event itself including our current assessment of the COVID-19 situation in regards to the event planning.
And, of course, it's Easter weekend, and while it's a probably very different Easter than all of us remember, that doesn't mean we can't still have some fun. So amongst the news and updates, keep an eye out for the special Easter treat we have for you!
Another Special Guest Announced!
29 January 2020
Welcome to Special Guest Wednesday! We promised that we would have another special guest announcement, and here it is.
Well we don't like to play favourites here at NZ Mega headquarters, but today we are announcing a really special guest who we are very pleased is coming to the NZ Mega 2020 event - one of our most favourite Lackeys, Annie Love!
Annie has been to New Zealand before and she loves (no pun intended) our little slice of paradise, so she is super stoked to be coming back for this very special celebration event, and we are sure the community here will be extremely welcoming to her once again.
You can see a short video from Annie posted to our facebook page - make sure you go and like it, comment and make her feel at home!
