New event a success
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.
