Blog #15 - Some New Zealanders at BATB

Wednesday,  8 October 2014  -

Over 300 ladies and a few men (one was a student in one of my classes)
attended ‘Beating Around The Bush’ (BATB).
Attendees were from all over the world - UK, USA, Canada, Japan -
as well as from Australia and New Zealand.
I didn’t get to meet all the New Zealanders but there were about 15 of us.
We were from all parts of the country. - Auckland, Whangarei, Kaitaia,
Hamilton, Morrinsville, Wellington, Nelson and, of course, myself from Napier.

I didn’t know everyone - but almost.
Here are a couple of photos of some of the NZ ladies
taken during a morning tea break.
I am sure that many of you will recognise Elizabeth
and the other ladies in the next two photos. 

And here are three New Zealanders in their classes -




And here - Elizabeth and I were “caught on camera”
at lunchtime one day.


Elizabeth is an awesome friend.
I didn’t know she was to be attending BATB
until just a few weeks prior to my going.


My exhibition booth was SO busy and I was so grateful she was there!
For the first few hours it was jam-packed! 

Her assistance was sincerely appreciated. 

Here are a couple of photos of my booth before the rush and crush -
