Well, here goes my write up for the fantastic Whitianga Speed weekend.
First, thanks must go to the organisers of such a great weekend of festival and speed. WELL DONE, PLEASE MAKE SURE IT HAPPENS AGAIN.
The weather played a great part, it could not have been better. Our accommodation at Aotearoa Lodge was great and our hosts ensured we were well catered for and would like to return next year, thankyou sincerely for your kind welcome to us all.
Thanks must go to John Booker for his efforts in all the organisation that was undertaken. The track was a challenge, especially when two of the islands all but disappeared under water. Thanks Den for your pole markers.
It was great to have time on the Saturday to do the Tiki Tour up the river to the Coroglen Pub, great scenery, great fun pushing the boats over the boulders, even more fun when you do not have shoes on. We were honoured to have a fly past x10 by the honoured club presidente. Well, Greg, have you come down to level ground yet?
Sunday was a great race day with some new found friends amongst us. Graham and Cliff, thanks for the tractor to haul us in and out, we all thank you and hope you enjoyed your day racing with us, you were both great. Would love to see more of you both.
Ist place for the day went to Den followed by Simon, Ree, and Cam, next was Rodger and lastly myself.
Thanks to every member, helper and all the spectators who helped make it a great weekend. Cheers, see you all at the next sprint at Meremere on Sunday 10th May. Cheers and happy Easter. Wayne
