However even the committee seem to be mocking those with questions with comments of "having to kill you if we tell".
I do believe it was tongue in cheek....you know....one of those Joke things.
If he really intended to mock you, I am sure he could have made that quite clear.
Whist I too am waiting for details of the NZ event, they have gone awfully quiet at the moment. To be honest they need to declare their hand very soon for their plans. People keep referring to the NZ event as a done deal I.e the OZ vs NZ or OZ and NZ events when technically both are in the planning stages, only one has pencilled a date, and whilst the NZ crew declared their 'intention of interest' first, they weren't the first to lock a date in. Personally I'd suggest (with respect) they take 2012 off the table and look to another year. This suggestion is to afford as many participants the opportunity ($$$ and leave) to hopefully attend both.
I agree, which is why I have said this -

I saw the NZ post come up and I felt like it was them just putting their feelers out, I also got the impression that nothing so far had even been planned, they were just telling people they were prepared to put themselves on the job and see if it could be done.
I then saw the Oz mega event thread pop up almost as if they feared that if they didn't hurry up and stick what they had up now, they might just lose everyones interest from the very get go....which it seems, they kinda have, a little sad really.
On another note -

This I kinda agree with you on, Ciril & I were talking about this and He told me the same thing, I had never thought of it like that either. The way there will be the same one people traversed last time and therefore the serious lack of new caches will make the trip boring and hard to endure for Familys with Tired weary kids!
I suppose there is nothing you can do about THAT but there it is.
