If cost was the only issue, I'd expect to see more South African's booked in since the costs of flights from SA is less than half of the cost from the UK.
I know there are more people waiting in the wings to book up - perhaps some more details about accommodation at the scout camp would be good. What sort of accommodation is it? When is it available from/to, how many to a hut? that sort of thing.
People flying long distances will want some time before the comp to recover from jet lag, so it would be helpful to know if the scout huts are available before the competition starts.
There aren't many hotels / places to stay near to the camp (that I could find anyway) I'm staying in Lower Hutt (about 30 mins drive away). I think Richard B has found a place a little closer.
For any information as to availability length of stay size of accommadation ect that you may need
go to this site specially for the Worlds 2014 for all your needs.
Here you can make contact and ask for your specific needs and Im sure they will see what they can do in a great freindlly manner. The longer it is left then it maybe less likely to get all your needs so the sooner you book the better if you are going to attend the Worlds.
On the above web site there is a map of the accom and surounds.
Hope this helps with any questions
