Rodney Times - - FRONT PAGE -

An ex­tra trol­ley rac­ing event will be held around the time of this year’s Rugby World Cup.

The an­nounce­ment was made at a thank you night to those in­volved with the Hi­bis­cus Coast soap­box derby run by the Whanga­paraoa Ro­tary Club.

Cer­tifi­cates were pre­sented to the many peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions in­volved.

These in­cluded the top six driv­ers from Stella Maris, Orewa Col­lege and Wainui schools and rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the school ob­tain­ing the most spon­sor­ship, Went­worth Col­lege.

The most im­pres­sive team, Red Beach School, was also con­grat­u­lated at the event.

The Plun­ket ladies re­ceived $ 6000 raised through the derby.

A large crowd at the night was wel­comed by club pres­i­dent Sarah Carr and derby di­rec­tor Terry Clark­son who thanked ma­jor spon­sors, sup­port­ers, helpers and Bright­side Rd res­i­dents.

The club has a fiveyear re­source con­sent to con­tinue the event.

Ro­tary now holds the New Zealand fran­chise from the Amer­i­can derby own­ers.

Ex­tra event: Derby di­rec­tor Terry Clark­son, with placeget­ters, says an­other soap­box derby is planned later this year.
