Westies are famous for their sense of direction. We are born with the ability to sniff out and find a party in a completely different town with the scantest of information.
For those of you with the good fortune to lead cosseted lives in other parts of AK and NZ, here are directions to finding the Corban Estate Arts Centre, (that's right, Arts...) on Sunday.
Easiest plan is to take the Nth Western motorway to the Lincoln Rd Turn off and simply travel all the way to the end of Lincoln Rd until you reach the intersection where it meets Great North Road (to the left) and Swanson Rd (to the right).
Cross the intersection into Mt Lebanon Ln then follow the lane to the entrance of the Estate grounds then take the road to the left (see diagram) until you reach the Cellar.
There's good parking around the Cellar entrance but the Cellar room itself is down a flight of stairs so if you wish, you can continue around to the lower grounds at the back of the main homestead/gallery building. There is a whole lot more parking around there and you'll see, as marked on the map, a sign to the toilets. Just near the toilets is a doorway which leads to the theatre space.
I suggest parking and coming in to scope the space out and decide which way you'd like to bring your gear in before loading it in.
If you're unsure or lost, give me a text on 021 567 063.
The whole estate is a pretty cool area. The gallery is good and the buildings are pretty historic. If it's a nice day, the grounds are good for a walk around if you need a break.
We will do the usual sausage sizzle and soft drinks. There is a full kitchen in the Cellar so I may just cook stuff in there if there's no suitable place to put a BBQ. If you check out the pics here - http://www.ceac.org.nz/venue_hire.aspx - there's a long bar and counter which gives us plenty of space for drinks and nibbles.
Feel free to bring a few beers or what have you. If you want to chip in and bring nibbles, that would be great too.
The usual collection box will be there for y'all to make a contribution to costs for the day. Please bring a bit of cash for that and refreshments.
