Update - August 1

Posted by Go Waihi on 01/08/2011

Wednesday afternoon the Business After 5 Meeting is on at Waihi Beach Surf Lifesaving Club. If you’re a business owner or manager come out just after 5 pm and see around the new additions. There’s an extra floor or two, some amazing views from the new deck, and we’ll hear about their plans for the future. HDC Economic Development Officer Chris Hale will bring us up to speed with where our region lies economically in the mix of things, and we’ll get to catch up as Goldfest approaches. Remember your business card, and to RSVP.

Up go the boots, trestles, gazebos and van doors for another Rotary Club of Waihi Car Boot Sale this Sunday. If you’ve got some things you’d like to see go to good homes, just turn up ready to go at 8.30 am weather permitting with $6. That’ll go to Rotary for local projects. Good eh! That’s the time to get there for the best choice too.

$2 or more, crazy costumes, skimpy swimsuits, goose bumps all around and we’ve got ourselves our annual Waihi Beach Surf Lifesaving Club Mid Winter Polar Plunge. This Sunday join in the fastest swim you’ll see for a while. Hot soup and toast afterwards will help warm you up for the prize giving for the oldest and youngest males and females, spot prizes, craziest and skimpiest outfits and the satisfaction of having done it. 10 am for registrations and 10.30 am for the run in, and out again to the hot showers.

Waihi Police Bluelight has their Show Us Your Cash Quiz Night on Friday August 26th. Get a team of up to 10 together and register for a fun night raising funds for a great cause. $100 per table, with nibbles provided, a cash bar and auctions through the night along with spot prizes, heck, you’d better get to the police station to book or phone 863 3713.

August 12th is closing date for entries into this new category of Art Waikino’s Labour Weekend Exhibition. Entry forms around town give you Con Kiernan’s contact details. Good luck.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: Too much of a good thing can be wonderful.
