If you happen to be located on the eastern sea board. Otherwise you
need to take into account flights from the other side of the country to
get to the eastern sea board to get those "cheap" flights to NZ. It
would cost me $400 more (at least) to goto NZ than to say Hobart for
instance purely based on flight costs. Considering there is a zero
chance of me winning an RDP again, then any future trips to LCA will be
funded out of my own pocket.
Personally I think Linux Australia (as a representative body for
*Australian* Linux users) should take the interests of its Australian
members into account before those of a different country IMHO in respect
of where to host future LCAs.
Anyway, if there are enough people in NZ to have an LCA there, then why
don't they hold one in their own right anyway (LCNZ)?
