The first Ruby Retreat is to be held around Christchurch at the fantastic Mt Cheeseman Ski Lodge. We were last at this venue for the last Rails Camp in 2017, and it's a really great experience.
Ruby Retreat: 2020 + 1 is aiming to have a licensed duty manager with responsible service of alcohol provided by the event.
Please arrive at Christchurch Airport before 3PM on Friday, 15th October. Barring any unforeseen circumstances out of our control, it's safe to book flights to leave after 1PM on Monday, 18th October. Or, you could stick around tour our beautiful South Island, with tourist operators needing our support more than ever.
Please bring some bedding, and a towel. There are mattresses and pillows and 1 blanket per bunk but no sheets, duvets etc so you will need to bring these, or a sleeping bag along with a pillow case.
