For anyone who's building a camp at KB, here's some good news: With a recent law change, tents up to 50m2 area no longer need a building permit. If you want to build anything like this, you don't need to do any more than cover it off in the safety plan for your theme camp (or whatever) and have it approved by the H&S team. Two metre height limits are no more, but we do want to be sure that structures are practically safe with nothing for people to fall from or things that will fall on them.

Ex-Com Member updates. Over the last few months we’ve had a couple of changes to the ex-com. Jonthan ‘Helix’ Beza decided to step down after a year of committee service so that he could dedicate more time to his KB interests of running the Pink Moa theme camp and working on an art project. Thank you Jonathan for all your great work during the year! We’ll see you on the paddock! In April, we welcomed aboard Rich ‘Rich.d.Rich’ Parratt (famous for bringing us the Dodgy Roger at KB08) and in June we welcomed Rowena ‘Serendipity’ Budd (from Polly’s Put the Kettle On) to the committee.

New Arts Grant Program! Yes, we are happy to report that Kiwiburn is officially starting an arts grant program. And we’re happy to announce that for KB09, we will have $2000 to give away in grant monies thanks to an additional grant from Destination Taupo (thank you!). Details of the granting process and program can be found on the Kiwiburn website here!
