#BFLP 2023 AGM Minutes

The Annual General Meeting of the #BigFinishLineParty was held on Saturday the twenty eighth day of the tenth month in the year two thousand and twenty three.

Convening at the Dodson St Beer Garden, a jovial, friendly bunch gathered.

Weather: cool

Atmosphere: pleasant

Food: plentiful

Conversations: Freely flowed

Food was delivered and thoroughly enjoyed by all. The agenda was tabled by the instigator and what followed is recorded below.

Everyone including the instigator arrived on time (just). Tall tales where shared of a certain M.S. putting on the pace, eating some wind to get his friends to the party in time. It is to be noted that this is not the first #BFLP where he has provided this service.

2. Where are we from?

Rather than simply take a roll call, some people enjoy travelling off the radar, an account was taken as to the extent of the geographic representation present. Recorded as follows...

Southland: Absent

Central Otago: Present

Canterbury: Present

West Coast: Present

Marlborough: Present

Nelson: Present

Tasman: Present

Wellington: Present

Wairarapa: Present

The rest of the North Island: Absent

NB: Two people did admit that Southland was their origin region

3. Did we have a good week?

A resounding yes was moved and all were in favor.

4. Where will the #BFLP be hosted in 2024?

A number of good options were presented with the following locations receiving the most interested support. In no particular order, as follows


Hanmer Springs

Mt Somers


It was moved by a well respected member of the room that "you just tell us where to be and we will be there" - This was agreed to by the room at large.

It was also resolved for 2024 a suggest route will be provided, but one needn't be restricted by the suggestion, for only one rule does apply #dontbelate

NB: Some regional bidding was entered into as the night progressed, bribery will not be tolerated.

This drew to a close the formal proceedings of the evening and people returned to the task at hand. Calorie replacement, conversation and tale telling.

A good night was had by all.
