Planning is well underway for our AGM/ 
Conference at Brackenridge Country Retreat & Spa, Martinborough, Wairarapa, Friday August 1 to Sunday August 3.
A three minute drive from the Martinborough Square, Brackenridge sits within view of
the iconic Haurangi ranges. Reminiscent of
early New Zealand station dwellings yet with welcoming stylish interiors, the cottages and 
studios offer relaxing accommodation. The main reception venue with open fires and covered 
verandas complete the picture.
Brackenridge can accommodate up to 64
guests in a mix of two (up to 4 guests) and four bedroom (up to 8 guests) cottages and studios. They have been very generous to DUNZ and
discounted their usual accommodation rates substantially so if you can share you will be able to further reduce the rates. Rates include
continental breakfast provisions plus free range eggs, plus full use of the gym, spa pool and 20m indoor heated pool.
The Spa Brackenridge is open all weekend for appointments – bookings are essential.
At this stage we are planning to have a BBQ Dinner Friday evening for those who can get there.
On Saturday the actual AGM in the morning is followed by a bus trip to Wairio wetlands with lunch at Lake Ferry Hotel.
That evening is Buffet dinner at Brackenridge
with the DU fundraising auction.
On Sunday we have organised several speakers. I visited the facilities in January and they are wonderful.
If anyone has auction items they purchased at a previous DU dinner and no longer like or want, please feel free to recycle them back into the organisation.
Or if you have other items suitable for the 
auction, just email me and I will organise 
someone to pick them up – This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Many thanks
