AOTNZ tour Coromandel & Whangaroa

Great night at the Coromandel Bowling Club and returned to the Jacaranda for an appointment with Mr Jameson. Wonderful breakfast from Robyn and we were on the road early for the long haul to Whangaroa. Six hours and almost constant rain. The river in Kaeo looked about ready to burst it's banks and we just had time to set up at the Gamefish Club, check into the Sunseeker, catch our breaths and get back down to the venue to have a meal and kick off again. The Whangaroa Marina was opened in 1997 by Hiwi Tauroa and another bloke with the splendid name of Tarzan Hori.

Great crowd and an early finish. I met up with some rellies and stayed out at their place while T & J retired back to the Digs. Met up again this afternoon at the Kerikeri Motel - the boys had spent some time with Ray Woolf and Billy Christian in Mangonui (SP?). We've had a terrific dinner at the Curry King and are all enjoying a night off before the final assault.
