South Pacific Star Party Policies

South Pacific Star Party Policies


  • Fees are for one overnight stay to the full weekend - no reductions for short visits (except for Locals – see below).
  • Advance registration is required. There are no on-site registrations from 2017.
  • Day-only visitors on Saturday (staying for talks, leaving before dinner) - flat fee of $25.

People who have paid:

  • Cancellation before deadline - full refund.
  • Cancellation after deadline, before SPSP - credit for next year if requested.
  • No-show - no refund or credit (unless exceptional circumstances), except that pre-ordered t-shirts will be mailed out free of charge.

People who haven't paid:

  • No-show - registration cancelled, t-shirts go back into stock.

Numbers Limit & Advance Registrations
From 2017, participants will be required to register in advance. The cut-off for numbers will be set to 300. Subsequent to the close of registrations, extras that the treasurer may add manually include:

  • Guest speakers and families (up to eight people)
  • Neighbours invited for the roast dinner (up to four people)
  • Major sponsors (usually about four people, but may be more).

This should take us to a maximum number of no more than 320 people on site.

Sponsors and Locals

  • Sponsors who donate more than $1000 worth of equipment are entitled to free registration for the party. All sponsors receive complimentary T-shirts, beanies and meal vouchers.
  • Locals may attend for free, but should supply names of all in their party to be added to list of registered participants for the gate crew.
  • Participants attending for free do not go in the Lucky Prize Draw.
