What time does RIOSS 2013 start and finish?

Registration will take place from 10.30am onwards, on Tuesday 8 January 2013 in the foyer of the Theatre, the Great Lake Centre, in the nearby town of Taupo. It will finish at the Chateau Tongariro, Whakapapa Village at 5.00pm on Saturday 12 January 2013.

Can I buy food for breakfast and dinner locally?

The Whakapapa Holiday Park where the group lodge is located, has a little store selling basic things. You may want to pick up few supplies from the supermarket in Taupo on the morning of Tuesday 8 January. There is also a supermarket in Turangi which is closer the summer school.

It is also worth pointing out that the food at the Chateau is amazing with a huge lunch - main, salads, filled rolls, cake, fruit and cheese and biscuits so most people don't feel that hungry in the evening. The morning and afternoon teas also have plenty of food.


I don't drive. How do I get from Taupo to the Chateau?

There will be plenty of people with cars and we will help you organise a ride with someone. We can also help you to car pool with someone from Auckland and there will  be participants coming from the Chateau on the morning of 8 January if you choose to stay in Whakapapa on the night of 7 January.
