Went to the venue yesterday and its pretty nice, very well lighted (heaps of windows as well).
There is a fridge that people can use as well as water and a jug.
Its actually next to the running track so you have to go into the park and then its the big white building (the gate at one end...
Well, a lot.
Cubes: easily NZ$1200

Comps: My only two comps + one more in two weeks
-New Zealand to Las vegas = NZ$2500 (hotel, flights, insurance etc. Probably cost more than this)

Not even close to unofficial OcR, i have a 1:14.xx average of 100 and a 1:03.7x average of 12 (this is with very little practice, im pretty sure if i did practice sub-1 would not be hard)
