Just received this from a Wellington promotion site.
"After granting a wish every day this October, the Wellington Wishing Well has come to an end. For the last day we got a bit wish-happy and have granted 15 Custom Wishes! Here are the winners of a double pass to the Red Carpet viewing grandstand for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey world premiere...

Curses! [In reply to] Can't Post

All these contests require residence in NZ...and while I often wish that were the case, I am not currently a resident.

My plan remains to head out very early on Wednesday morning, secure a spot at the front somewhere along the red carpet and patiently wait.

It looks like I'll be joining you [In reply to] Can't Post

Me and my friend are coming from outside New Zealand as well. Perhaps we'll meet. (yeah, how likely is that?)

Are you all going to the TORn/Red Carpet party???? [In reply to] Can't Post

The party is on Nov. 26, which is that Monday, but many of the people traveling to Wellington for the Premiere ar finding that the best place to meet up and make plans for Wednesday.

Peace, Love and Rock & Roll,

Grandstands [In reply to] Can't Post

I point-blank asked the council about the grandstands:


Wellington City Council will be running competitions to win tickets at the Hobbit Market which is on at Waitangi Park from the 25-28 November. Positively Wellington Tourism will also be running competitions for tickets to the grandstands.

So anyone who's in Wellington in the days before the event still has a chance, be it a small one. ;)
