Southland Track Champs
Well it is the final big event of the year – the Southland Track Champs are launching on Friday and our guests again this year are the New Zealand Para-cycling team, including our very own Hannah Pascoe. We have more than 140 entries from all over the country so it is going to be a fantastic event.

Friday night is free to spectators and Under 13s kick off at 4.30pm with the rest of the action from 6p. The full Saturday and Sunday programmes, starting from 10am each day, are $5 for adults and free for kids.
If anyone is still keen to lend a hand volunteering – let me know.
If anyone can lend a set of rollers for an out-of-towner U17 lad during the champs, also please let me know. Much appreciated as always.
