Thunder on the lake
One of the best days of the year and we were treated to the roar of the first event in the 2013 NZ Offshore powerboat series.
The helicopters were taking film footage for television.
Our divers reckoned it weas really amazing hearing the noise from the water.
Ron Smeijers cracks it.
Great shot Ron.
As you were leaving town today we trust you will plan to place Taupo on your agenda to visit again.
Taupo Local Tony More
Great shot Tony.
I was watching Tony hit his bucket of balls and his second ball hit the Red Flag area and bounced across into the Blue flag hole. Tony won a flight on Taupos Floatplane
The rest of Tonys balls were somewhat off the mark which proves our theory - if you've got your balls in the air you've got a chance!
First Hole in One for the year.
Jonny Beattie an Irishman living in NZ has the honour of being the 1st in the New Year to win a Hole in One.
Jonny won a night at the Hilton - well done!
