4 days to go!

The Summer Tango in Nelson Weekend 
is just around the corner

in 4 days!

 A few last minute details for the out-of-towners....

There is a courtesy bus leaving from 1903 Square, at the top of Trafalgar St opposite Harry's Bar,  to the Playhouse at 6.45 on Friday night.  This bus is for the out of towers who have no transport and is a free service.  Please contact me if you would like to be on this bus - there are limited spaces and I already have a few people lined up.

If you are staying at Fellworth House (Golden Lodge), Rachel will pick you up at 6.45 sharp from Fellworth House in her people mover.  There is space for 6 people max in Rachel's van, if there are more of you staying there you will have to find your way to 1903 Square to catch the Playhouse van.

Just so you know a taxi would cost approx $85 one way.  Call Nelson City Taxis on 5488225.

I have another couple of locals who can pick you up so let me know if you require a lift and we can make sure you get there!
Let me know as soon as you can about your requirements.  
You can email me on or text/call me on 027 238 0568

There is a bus ($3 each way) which will take you from town to the Suburban Club in Tahunanui.  
Call 548 6815 to secure a seat and ask them to pick you up from 1903 Square at 7pm.   If you are staying at Fellworth you can get them to pick you up from there so you don't have to worry about walking in to town (although the walk is lovely!)
Alternatively you could share a taxi with your new friends (approx cost $20 one way).  Call Nelson City Taxis on 5488225.

If it is raining we will have the milonga at Bar Berlin, 5 Church St.  A cosy venue where you can buy a glass of wine or coffee. It is just around the corner from 1903 Square.  Don't forget to check out the market in Montgomery Square first (9am-1pm) and have one of Doris' German sausages!

Fellworth House is walking distance from anywhere in town and situated on the side of the Centre of NZ hill.  Here is a map so you can get there in time for the last milonga of the weekend.  Take a walk through the Queens Gardens on the way and enjoy the lovely bush walk up to the house on the right or take the driveway!

A few last minute details for the locals....

Thank you to those who are hosting some of our guests - it is much appreciated by me and them.

If you are available to give the out-of-towers a ride to the milongas on either night please let me know and I can put you in contact with them.

Please book into The Playhouse if you haven't already done so ;-)

Please complete registration so I can organise seating for the Saturday night!

Feel free to bring a plate to share on the Sunday milonga, soft drinks and chocolate provided ;-)

It is looking like the sun will be shining and the vibe will be great!  Really looking forward to welcoming all our guests to our fabulous weekend of dancing in Nelson.

Happy travelling to those coming from overseas - Brisbane, Philidelphia, Germany - and to those from other parts of NZ - Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin, Westport, Blenheim, Picton .....

Hasta las pistas!

For lovers of dance and Piazzolla - here is a little something Piazzolla, a little different and pretty special!
