That would be 10 pm on the west coast, and midnight for you.  Plus
a day, of course.  So Saturday in Chicago happens on Sunday in
Kiwiland.

East coast is 6 hours ahead and a day behind.
West coast is 3 hours ahead and a day behind.
So 7pm Sunday for NZ is 1am Sunday East and 10pm (Saturday) West.

Mightily confusing, isn't it?

Will try to make it tomorrow night.  :-)

Well after an extended break due to daylight savings and time
differences I think its time we got together and chatted again.  See
lots of new Kiwis who should be ripe for the opportunity!

Hi, Stacey,

Ok, anybody want to take a crack at what day and time that would be in
some Western Hemisphere time zone? I can convert from there. Or is this
only for kiwis?

OK I think I have this time zone thing sussed but might be an hour out
due to daylight savings

East coast is 3 hours ahead and a day behind

West coast is 5 hours ahead and a day behind

So 7pm Sunday for us is 10pm Saturday East and 12pm West

I think - the idea was that if we had it on a Sat for you folks you
could still sleep in the next day :-)

and ALL rosarians are invited to chat - only called NZ chat to
distinguish it from the other one on Vengers.

Well, I want to thank both you and Regina for your efforts. I also don't
feel like quite so much of a moron for not being able to figure it out.
