For those who are going on the Waikato River cruise, you travel to Hamilton Gardens and enter at Gate 1 which is the main gate with the big carpark down by the Pavillion.  If you look across the carpark you will see a large notice - Waikato River Cruises - and you just walk down that track which is a couple of minutes walk.  Everybody is to be there by 6pm at the latest. 
If you wish to gather outside Cooney's office in Dick Street and carpool, my suggestion is that you be there at 5.15pm and leave no later than say 5.25pm. 
Drinks are available on board for purchase and canapes will be served throughout the evening.  The expected return time is 7.30pm. 
Hope you have an enjoyable cruise. Dennis.
