Chas­ing cheese

South Waikato News - - NEWS / HE PU¯RONGORONGO -

It is al­most that time of year again when South Waikato res­i­dents chase cheese down­hill. The Waikato Cheese Rolling Cham­pi­onships will be held in Toko­roa on March 7 and event ‘‘stick­ler’’ Mar­cus May­don is urg­ing all schools to start pre­par­ing for events such as the go-cart rac­ing. He said he has al­ready had in­ter­est from a few youth groups but en­cour­aged those keen to get build­ing. ‘‘If they build it there’s no rea­son they can’t use it two-three years down the track.’’ En­try into the grounds will be a gold coin do­na­tion and en­try into the races will be $5 for adults and $2 for any­one un­der 16. In last week’s is­sue of the South Waikato News a story on Page 5 ti­tled ‘Pool ad­mis­sion rises on cards’ said the Ti­rau Pri­mary School’s pool use fee would in­crease by $375 per week. This was in­cor­rect. The user charges for the sea­sonal pools in Pu­taruru and Tı¯rau, for all schools, will be set at $25 per hour of use.
