Wow, another month has gone past and we are still facing the uncertainty of Covid. We are receiving support from Taupo District Council around levels and expectations and we will try to keep you all updated around what events we can and can’t host. This is a disappointment for ourselves as a committee, as well as the loyal homeowners and holiday makers that visit and support us during our busy Xmas season.
OKRA - Raewyn attended the most recent OKRA meeting and was able to give the committee an overview of the meeting and discussed how the two committees could work together in the future while still maintaining their own identities.
Mah Jong - Is taking place again at the hall on Mondays & Fridays. We are very excited to have this back in action again.
Fishing Comp - We are excited to be able to host this event in the current Covid level and hopefully this should be easier if levels drop/alter. Sponsors are currently being contacted. So far we have a wide range of prizes donated and are looking forward to this event.
Possible redecoration of the Hall - The committee has moved that we investigate the feasibility and cost of painting the Autex in the hall. Currently this is red and a few hirees of the hall have commented that it would be more suitable if this was a neutral colour.
Upcoming events -
AGM - Monday 6th Dec 5.30pm at the Hall. We are looking for further committee members so if you would like to join our small committee and bring ideas to life, please contact us. Our meetings are held monthly and we try to keep it to 1hour! We are a supportive group who love new ideas while retaining the history of the hall and surrounding area.
Due to covid restrictions we are unable to host Carols or the Fun Run. We are looking at playing Carols from the hall on Xmas eve for you all to enjoy as you walk/run/play past the hall. Unfortunately the Fun Run comes under marathon restrictions and so at this stage (24th Nov) we are unable to hold anything - but we will certainly be pushing to bring this back in 2022!
Fishing Competition - January 1&2, 2022. The fishing competition this year will be open for online entries for the first time and will also have a virtual prize giving in keeping with COVID guidelines. Registrations online will open from Monday 27th - Thursday 30th with physical registrations (with physical distancing and mask wearing) open on Friday 31st from 2pm till 4pm. Please keep an eye on facebook and web site for further details.
