New event a success

South Waikato News - - FRONT PAGE -

The In­au­gu­ral Waikato Cheese Rolling Cham­pi­onship rolled off to a great start and a laugh.

More than 150 peo­ple gath­ered for the evening’s events last Tues­day, with cheese-rolling am­a­teurs turn­ing pro­fes­sional by the time the big cham­pi­onship roll oc­curred.

Cheese-rolling was only part of the evening’s events, which also in­cluded gum­boot-throw­ing, golfchip­ping and the dreaded eggth­row­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

The or­gan­is­ers of the event, The Toko­roa Hash House Har­ri­ers, do­nated all the tak­ings to St John Am­bu­lance in Toko­roa and South Waikato Sport Waikato.

Work is un­der way for next year’s com­pe­ti­tion.
