I'm still concerned about going to Auckland for the world masters games. There will be 35,000 competitors, plus officials and volunteer helpers.
Auckland has a serious homeless problem, plus it has been hit with flooding three times in the past few weeks. Some homeless people live in motels and the like, and are being pushed out, offered fuel money to go elsewhere if they are lucky.
Normal daily rates start at about 200 dollars a night for a bed. Who knows what will be being charged now.
We can get digs two hours away..but with one event starting at 7am.,..a quandary.

I have to admit that I have some trepidation going to large events today. The crowds can be overwhelming and the costs are always so much higher than normal.
