We are pleased to announce that we can offer skateboarding lessons from two skating pros through Onboard Skate in Term 2 as a 6 week after school programme starting on Monday 29 May.  I would’ve loved to have run it this term but unfortunately the builders will be taking up the quad.

If it rains on a session day then we will reschedule to another day or week to ensure we get all 6 x session in during the term.

This is for ALL AGES & LEVELS!  Start date of May 29th from 3.15pm – 4.45pm, running for 6 x consecutive weeks (weather permitting).

I need a minimum of 20 students to make this happen so if you want in you need to register with me please.  The cost will be $15 per session. However, I will aim to raise some funds to subsidise this cost, so it is available to everyone, let me know if you can help with fundraising.  Everything is provided; Helmets, ramps, boards, safety gear etc.  Should be fun!

Hamilton Event:  22 March 2017, Hamilton Gardens

What is the Senior Get2Go?

The events are 3 hours in duration and are a mix between orienteering and rogaining, with some mountain biking and mystery activities thrown in to keep you on your toes. They are organised by Hillary Outdoors with the expert assistance from the local outdoors enthusiasts. Your teams goal is to navigate to as many checkpoints and complete as many mystery activities as you can and then make it back to the finish line before the clock ticks down to zero.

Part of the course may follow a set route and have compulsory checkpoints and part will have optional checkpoints to visit in any order. The navigation isn’t super hard, so as long as you have a general understanding of how to read a map you will be fine. You also need someone who can tell the time as you can’t afford to be late back to the finish, because as soon as the 180min time limit is up you start getting penalised points.

We will give you a specially prepared map with all of the checkpoints/routes and mystery activities marked on it and you will score points for the ones you find/complete inside the time limit. The team with the biggest score at the end wins. There will be some cool spot prizes and giveaways, so get your team together now and start planning. If you live in a region that neighbours one where an event is being held, we have timed the events to allow for travel to/from the venue that should fit nicely into a school day without the need to find accommodation…etc, unless of course you are really keen and want to do all 4 events!

Who is it for?

The Senior Get2Go is for any students in years 11-13. The events will be suitable for all levels of experience and getting involved and participating is what it is all about. You certainly don’t need to be an elite athlete, or even and athlete at all to join in the fun. If you have taken part in our Junior Get2Go Challenge (for year 9 and 10 students) this will be the perfect ‘next step’ into adventure racing. It will also be a great training opportunity for anyone taking on our Hillary Challenge 6hr Adventure Races being held in June.  A maximum of two schools may join together to form a team (this applies to ANY school and includes single gender and co-ed schools joining together).

This is for teams of 3, let me know if you’re keen!
