10 youth teams sought
Competition will be fierce this month when the Youth Day Out is held in Putaruru.
The event is booked for September 25 at Glenshea Park from 9.30am to 3pm and organisers want 10 teams of 10 competitors.
Y Rangitahi Youth Day Out project manager Jamie McEwan said teams would compete in touch and dodgeball.
‘ ‘ Anyone from the community can play. It is a youth event – that’s people from 12 to 24 years old,’’ he said. ‘‘It is something we wanted to do for the community. We also wanted to promote the youth centre.’’
Mr McEwan said a relay would be held in the after- noon and a movie night at The Plaza.
‘‘For the sports there are spot prizes, including one for overall best team and wackiest dressed.’’
Y Rangitahi is a 10-week programme for youth from Putaruru and involves individual development projects.
