Teachers, parents and children warmed up for the mathletics competition at Taupo Intermediate by hitting a few buckets. Some of the shots were quite good.
Club night at the local sailing club made golf at the hole in one very interesting. Using the 200 metre buoy as a turning marker the boats sailed dangerously close to the pontoon before tacking to port.
Several of our punters wanted to take a pot shot at the boats and I have no doubt they would have been firing warning shots over the bow and directly at the helm. A bit like the mechanised golf ball cart at the driving range - too hard to resist.
Local Turangi legend Tiraa hits a few balls as casual as can be ....and you guessed it he gets lucky. Lucky Tiraa plays off single figures in jandals and has been club champion at Turangi.
Well done mate.
he\'s really looking forward to feeling the rush of 200km wind in his face whilst free-falling.
All we can say is start praying!
Well done Peter Edwards from Suffolk in England.
Make time to go skiing. When the Mountain is looking this good how could you resist.
With warmer temperatures being confirmed (i.e. an early Spring this year) you should take advantage of the good days in August.
