Nau mai, Haere mai

We are looking forward to seeing you this weekend for the bi-annual Taranaki Tu Mai event hosted by Ngāti Tama in Waitara!

Thank you for your patience regarding us getting the information out to you all. The draw is yet to be confirmed and there are several participants registered for multiple sports, some teams could be impacted depending on the final draw. We will get the draw out as soon as we receive it. Please familiarize yourselves with the programme, specifically times for your team check-in and kick-off. Please ensure your teams are there at least 30 minutes before starting in case there are any changes.

4. It is the responsibility of each coordinator to pick up your sports tops and collect them at the end of your games and return them to Larnee and/or I. We have numbered them all, and will know which ones haven’t been handed back, however we don’t want to have to chase people to get them back, we want to be able to use these tops for other events over the next few years. Please ensure you hand these back.
