For those staying in Carlaw Park and arriving over the weekend, note 
that the listed weekend reception hours are 11am-1pm (ie, basically 
enough to check out "lateish" but not much else).

So in theory pretty much everyone staying in Carlaw Park is going to 
need to add their name to the list... and presumably plan on calling the 
(listed on that page) after hours number.

Possibly at least Sunday afternoon it might be easiest to assume that 
people will be arriving reasonably steadily between 1pm and say 6pm, 
with some others later on?  (The page already has arrival times from 3pm 
onwards listed.)

FWIW, having "registered on the first day" (rather than the day 
before/Sunday) for a few conferences recently, the process is generally 
pretty quick these days because (a) the bugs in the registration process 
have been ironed out the day before, and (b) a substantial portion of 
people have already registered so the queues are shorter.  IIRC when I 
registered on Monday morning for LCA2014 there were 1-2 people in the 
queue in front of me, and the whole process took less than 5 minutes.

Probably best not to leave it until the last minute.  But if you 
register at say 8:15 or 8:30 in the morning you'll probably still make 
the queue for the keynote with time to catch up with people in the queue 
before they open the doors.
