    Thanks Kev!

    BTW I searched Naviti earlier in the morning and apparently they don't have accommodation available for all dates of the tournament!

    Unless Brian has thought of it and has organised for availability of rooms, I think it's wise for all having planned to or thought of going (incl. myself) to search for alternative accommodation close to the venue etc.

    You might think May 2013 is way to far ahead but it's not. Coral Coast (Fiji) is a paradise on earth (not that our one in WA isn't) and very popular with tourists who plan their visit there way ahead!

    I think you will find that we already have block bookings on rooms at the Naviti Resort. It is highly recommended that you stay on-site! Please wait for the entry form!

    Thanks Prez, see I left the possibility of you having taken care of it open!

    NZ players

    It's been pointed out to me that the dates don't fall into NZ school holidays. I guess there will be a few kiwis who will be unable to play as a result of that.

    It would be much appreciated if someone familiar with the area could post information about nearby cheap accommodation, and nearby cafes/restaurants where players can get lunch and dinner.
