== Persenters vs Presenters ==
Hi Lin, just wondering why you're maintaining a link to the misspelled [[Persenters Resource Page]] on your profile page, which has a hard redirect to the properly spelled [[Presenters Resource Page]]? You asked me some time ago to move the misspelled one and fix the problem. As I replied to you back then, I cannot move pages, as I do not have <span class="plainlinks">[https://linux.conf.au/wiki/index.php?title=Special:ListUsers&group=sysop Administrator privileges]</span>. You, however, do have the magical wiki wand, and can wave it yourself to fix this problem.

: [[User:Glen Ogilvie|Glen Ogilvie]] has just given me admin rights on the wiki, and the first thing I did was delete that unsightly misspelled page. Sorted!

:: I've left the hard redirect page for [[Partners Programme]] to [[Partners' Programme]] alone, as it makes sense for delegates looking for it without the apostrophe.

== Supermarkets ==
Countdown quay st is open 24 hrs But no alcohol overnight (can't remember what time they stop+resume selling alcohol - 11pm or midnight)
* Countdown metro on Victoria St (opposite elliot st) is probably the closest.
* New World on Queen St (opposite Shortland St in the former BNZ food court)
Both Countdown + new world is smaller than the countdown in Quay St + New World at Victoria Park.
* they all have stuff for gluten free, egg free, dairy free, vegetarian diets (eg gluten free breads etc). They also have butchery, bread, deli, etc. just the smaller ones have not as big range.
Lim Chhour (sp) asian supermarket on 184 K'Rd (behind k'rd foodcourt)
and Tai Ping Beach Rd are 2 closest asian supermarkets to the venue.
Japanese Mart at Wyndham St http://japanmart.co.nz/contact/
== Speciality foods ==
SUpermarkets do have a lot of the organic, dairy free, gluten free(incl bread + pasta), sugarfree , and food for special diets. However there's other shops too.
Eg if the bread/pasta/biscuits isn't in the bread/pasta section, check for the supermarket's speciality section or ask staff.

* Kapiti Cheese + Icecream shop
Shortland St, Auckland CBD  https://www.kapiticollection.co.nz/
La Cigale market - there's some french cheeses sold there.
== Bakeries in town ==
Pandoro (queen st)
== Best pies ==
Prob good for ppl going on the roadtrip and wish to have pies along the way
== Markets ==
I like markets as they are a good place to find the best NZ local produce (especially the farmers markets).  "Farmers market" in nz means things they sell has to be made/grown within a certain radius of the market's location. They tend to be organic or spray free too. Authenticity http://www.marketground.co.nz/fmnz/35275/
Britomart Farmers market on Saturday
Parnell Farmers market - behind the jubilee building on Sundays
La Cigale French Market in Parnell. on Sat + sundays St Georges Bay Rd. Can walk from carlaw park accommodations. Doesn't comply with "farmers market" rules. La Cigale (the shop which started the market) has imported french cheeses and wines as well as other kitchenware. However there's many stalls there that would comply within the NZ farmers market regulations.
Very very good market. There's a gluten free sausage stall there too.
Friday night market at Wynyard quarter
Farmers market web page http://www.farmersmarkets.org.nz/
Further afield (for travellers) the Matakana market oN Sat morning is worth
visiting if you're on the way to visit the marine reserve at Leigh.
Wellington City Market- there's a foodies market on sunday

http://www.quaymed.co.nz/ lists their fees as $80
They are close (by the old railway station on Beach Rd)

Note: Casual + not enrolled applies to any person going to a GP that isn't their normal GP. So applies to ppl who travel from out of town.
