Gravity Canyon

Located just South of Taihape and a further 15 minutes inland to an old suspension bridge site and huge canyon.

 

Featuring a giant swing a bungy jump and a flying fox all in a magic setting. See the website  http://www.gravitycanyon.co.nz/

 

We were on route from a visit to Golf Distributors in Palmerston North and had to detour. 

 

The swing was the option I chose and after 50m off freefall the swing kicked in and catapulted me into the air. Exhilarating.

 

Gravity Canyon is a must do activity in the Central North Island.

Ewan Gilmore - RIP

This is an early photo of Ewan, taken in 2003. 

 

Ewan died this morning, at home, in his bed, aged 51.

 

The Hole in One is going to miss a true friend. You've been coming to us since we opened in 1993.

 

You bought with you many other friends like the guys from 7 days and we really appreciated your humour and candour.

 

Your golf was, crap but you didn't care, you just liked whacking that ball out into the lake.

 

Once we saw you hit the pontoon 7 times. The smile on your face was priceless.

 

Sadly no more. RIP Ewan.

This man is no slug with a club or a bat

Ross Taylor enjoys some down time with his wife.

 

We were too slow to give Ross some balls for the long drive. We reckon with his 'fast hands' he may have beaten some prominent All Blacks.

NZ U19 Rugby Championships

The NZ Under 19 rugby championships and selection for higher honours is being played in Taupo this week.

 

Her we have the boys from Canterbury. Some of these guys are big. 

 

We spotted one who had a resemblance to the Whitelock boys from Feilding who represent Canterbury, Crusaders and All Blacks...turns out he is a cousin. Good news for Canterbury to have another good player coming through.
