[[File:augurs-affordable-accomodation-200x200.png|left]] [[User:Augur_.|<font color="#703931">'''ᏜᏠᎶᏠᏑ'''</font>]] is one of the LCA volunteers, who lives in West Auckland and will be attending the conference every day. He has a 7-seater car with space enough to take some delegates between their accommodation out West and the conference venue. If you want to stay out West but don't want to have the hassles of commuting and parking each day, then this might be a solution for you. There will be a daily ridesharing/carpooling arrangement to the conference venue. Transport back to your accommodation can also be arranged, and can be flexible to suit social activities in the evening, with <font color="#703931">'''ᏜᏠᎶᏠᏑ'''</font> as your sober driver. Spaces are limited, so get in quick! A donation for petrol costs would be appreciated. See below for more details about [[#Transport Arrangements|Transport Arrangements]]. {{newleft}}
