Update - July 11

Posted by Go Waihi on 11/07/2012

I’ve been enjoying the fine weather we’ve managed to have over the last week; the crisp mornings are followed by good outdoors friendly afternoons, although it still cools down quickly. I’m starting to notice a little extra daylight with the sunset a bit later each day .It’s back to school on Monday after a couple of weeks off for a lot of people, including teachers. Here’s an idea for this week, get in touch with someone you’ve been meaning to but haven’t got around to it yet.

This is the date of the Arty Bra Fundraiser with Waihi Beach Play Centre. Put it into your diary, mobile and on the fridge, and get along for a great night of art on bras, auctions, spot prizes and entertainment. There’ll be a cash bar at the Waihi Beach Community Hall, and nibbles are included in the $10 entry. To enter your bra, or someone else’s (with their permission I’d suggest), email artybras@gmail.com.

The Blast Duathlon on September 2 has two courses, long and short. Then there’s also the road versus off-road decision, so there’s now four choices. Your next decision is whether to do it as an individual or as a team. Make it a challenge, have some fun, support Waihi Sport N Action and, well start thinking about making some decisions.

The seniors have been working on their school ball for quite a while and it comes to fruition this Friday night at Waihi College. It’s one of those school events that’s remembered for years, and of course there’s the after ball function that’s pretty popular too. Remember it’s about having a good time, and playing safe. So act responsibly, enjoy the festivities, keep an eye out for each other and smile when the cameras come out for the record books.

The entry forms are out for the fifth annual Go Waihi Trolley Derby with Waihi Lions on Saturday October 6 during Goldfest. They’re at Waihi Library, Hauraki District Council office in Seddon St, at Go Waihi in the visitor centre. It’s still free to enter and the aim of the game is to have FUN! If you’re prepared to do that then get your entry in, sort out your trolley and get set to hurtle down Haszard St into Seddon St, or you could just cruise the course.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK: If you’re coasting, you’re going downhill.
