Sumo ‘fun’ raiser

Central Otago Mirror - - WANAKA NEWS -

If you have ever wanted to see sumo wrestlers fight then the Ju­nior Up­per Clutha Rugby Club fundraiser event could be your ticket. A Sumo ‘‘Fun’’ Raiser event will be held on Fe­bru­ary 22 to raise funds for clubs un­der 12 and 13 Mos­man Tour to Aus­tralia in April. Fundrais­ing com­mit­tee mem- ber Kylie Ar­ne­sen said lo­cal and na­tional per­son­al­i­ties have been in­vited to take part in the event but re­mained tight-lipped on who they might be. ‘‘We’ve got a few sur­prises up our sleeve. It’s go­ing to be hi­lar­i­ous’’ she said. The team of 30 need to raise $100,000 for the trip and while they were in Aus­tralia they would play four games. It was a tra­di­tion for the Syd­ney-based Mos­man rugby team to come to New Zealand for the tour and this was the sec­ond time the ju­niors from the Wanaka-based club would head over the ditch. Anna van Riel will en­ter­tain at the evening.


Sumo sun­down: Ju­nior Up­per Clutha Rugby team mem­bers Sam Teal, 11, of Hawea Flat, Jesse Robert­son, 11, Reilly Ar­ne­sen, 12, and Ethan Kerr, 12, all of Al­bert Town, are sell­ing tick­ets to the club’s fundraiser for their tour to Aus­tralia in April.
