San Diego Travel & Adventure Show March 29 & 30

The San Diego Adventure Travel show is taking place at the San Diego Convention Center. I have a limited number of free tickets available. Please message me if you are interested in a free ticket (only one per member). I will be working at the show all weekend with Air New Zealand Vacations, booth #624. Please come by and say Hi! The travel show will be a great place to get more information about your bucket list destinations, get ideas for your next adventure, etc. You will also have the chance to hear Samantha Brown, Leon Logothetis, Don Wildman and Patricia Shultz. Show hours are:
Saturday March 29: 10am-5pm
Sunday March 30: 11am-4pm

    WOW what a show that was! I didn't get a chance to walk around and see the other booths. Ours was constantly busy all weekend, which was awesome! My voice is now in recovery mode. I haven't talked that much about NZ is a very long time!! It was great to meet some of you in person and I look forward to our next meeting.
    Now onto our Trivia Contest:
    Saturday's Answer was: Cricket - I was wearing the Black Caps team shirt. The Black Caps will be competing in the World Cup Cricket taking place in Australia and NZ Feb/Mar 2015. Congrats to Al for being the only person to post the answer.

    Sunday's Answer was: I was wearing a Double Koru pendant made from New Zealand Greenstone (type a of Jade). The Koru is based on the curl of a fern frond and means New Beginnings. Congrats to both Carol and Lynne for posting the correct answers. CONGRATULATIONS! All three of you have won a copy of "New Zealand Culture Smart!" I will contact each of you about getting your prize to you.

    I sent a comment from my phone while at the show around 1:00, but I don't see it. It said New Zealand greenstone "Koru". New beginnings. It was a great show, and I enjoyed meeting Helen and Sharon.

    March 30

    • Helen B

      It was great to meet you too Lynne!! I didn't get a chance to meet Sharon and her booth was just around the corner from me. We were very busy all weekend and my voice is in need of rest!

  • AL

    Helen; Sorry about that. You did say don't forget the sport. Woman's Cricket .

    • Helen B

      Al, almost 100% correct..The cricket part is definitely correct but it is the men's team that are known as the Black Caps. Next year New Zealand and Australia will be jointly hosting the World Cup Cricket starting Feb 12-Mar 29, 2015. I just might have to stay a few days longer after my tour to catch a game or two.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
