New Zealand 2015 Nationals Report

On the 26th and 27th of September, New Zealand had its third Nationals event with our biggest turnout yet - 27 people. It should be noted that everything up to Universe of Tomorrow was legal for us.

For me, the best part about events like this isn't playing but meeting people that I talk to all year on our awesome Facebook page! I'm pretty stoked with how cool the NZ community is!

The whole weekend was streamed by Mark and myself which made the event even more awesome and special. 
Mark put HEAPS of work into getting all the tech for the event working.
Our YouTube channel has all the videos from the raw archived stream but I've also cut up the finals for your viewing pleasure. Not sure if I'm gonna cut the rest up.
