One suggestion for looking after them as Dan suggested is
Egressive/Effusion Group given their close proximity to Cii where the
Chch Creative Space meetups take place and a number of Effusionists who
come along to the meetups being stationed there.

It would definitely be great to have them for this event and as it is
about a month away we could just have the XOs available in Chch
somewhere until then and then grab them for the event.

If exposure is one of your concerns, they definitely will get this at
the Wednesday/Sunday Christchurch Creative Space meetups.

Awesome that would be great. We could make them available at Kiwi PyCon
