For a fun, friendly, and frenzied weekend, come to the NZSS AGM to be held at at Piopio. A fun time for friends and family, as well as hardened cavers, is assured. As well as caving activities, there will be mountain biking, bush walks, and speleo sports, as well as the usual Arch Nana, Council Meeting, AGM Dinner and all the associated shenanigans.

We will be based at the Piopio College, with plenty of rooms to sleep in, grass to camp on, showers to clean up in, and a gymnasium to meet in.

Mark your calendar.   Plan your travel.   Find a sleeping partner.   Just make sure you’re there!
